Toss your Make-Up!

Did you know that May is National Toss Your Make-up Month?

According to Good Housekeeping and CVS, it is!   It’s time to clean out that make-up drawer!  Whether this is a great marketing ploy to get us all to go out and buy new cosmetics, the truth is, most of us probably don’t replenish our make-up as often as we should. I know I’m not the only one who stretches out my products longer than I should…

Here’s a quick list of what needs to be tossed and when:

  • Toss out your mascara and liquid liner every season
  • Your skin-care products, sunscreens and liquid foundation needs to be replaced every 6 months
  • Replace your hair care products once a year
  • Toss out your powder-based cosmetics (eye shadow, pressed powder, etc), lipsticks and nail polish every 2 years

FYI, CVS  just happens to have a sale this month on most beauty products!
