Make-up-Precautions to follow

The beauty market is flooded with a plethora of cosmetics. Here are some precautions that you should exercise while using cosmetics.

  • Stop using any product that causes an allergic reaction.
  • Keep make-up containers tightly closed when not in use.
  • Keep pressurized containers and aerosols away from heat, fire.
  • Keep make-up away from sunlight to prevent destruction of the preservatives.
  • Follow use-instructions on the product label.
  • Do not exceed recommended applications.
  • Don’t use eye cosmetics on infants and children
  • Don’t use eye cosmetics in case you are suffering from eye infection such as conjunctivitis(pink eye).
  • Throw away any make-up you were using when you first discovered the infection.
  • Never experiment with the product by adding any liquid to bring back its original consistency unless it is written in the instructions. Adding other liquids could introduce germs that can easily grow out of control.
  • Discard the product if you find change in color or odor. This might be due to degradation of preservatives over time, which may not be able to fight bacteria.
  • Do not apply make-up while driving. Not only does this make for dangerous driving, but hitting a bump in the road and scratching your eyeball can cause bacteria to contaminate the cut and could result in serious injury, including blindness.
  • Never share make-up. Try to use disposable applicator.
  • Never use aerosol hairsprays near the heat or while smoking because they can ignite. Hairsprays and powders may cause lung damage if inhaled

    Never share eye makeup - Because everyone’s skin bacteria is different, sharing cosmetics is a sure fire way to cause cross contamination which leads to eye infections.

  4. Careful - Eye makeup removers are designed to be used near and around the eye. Makeup removers can cause dryness, itching, and swelling if they get into your eyes so apply with ease and slowly to avoid any from entering the eye
