Why it is Important to Replace Your Mascara Every 90 Days

When it comes to kitchen products, a lot of individuals are very careful about expiration  dates. However, the same cannot be said of common beauty products, such as mascara. Like medicine and food, mascara has a use by date that a lot of women tend to ignore. Mascara is like milk, it has a clear expiration date, however once it is opened, it will only last so long before it starts to spoil.  If you ignore the lifespan of your mascara, it can cause a host of eye problems that you want to avoid.

Eyelashes are a screen that sifts any particles and other components so that your eyes can be protected at all times.  As such, because they are designed to keep things from entering your eye, lashes contain all types of bacteria, which is completely natural and expected.

As soon as your mascara wand touches your lashes, it too also collects that bacteria. Your mascara wand can also attract bacteria from the atmosphere, every time you take the wand in and out of the tube, you are potentially attracting germs and air into the product.     Most mascara contains preservatives with the intention of slowing down the growth of bacteria. That preservative can only protect you for so long. Once that stops working, that nasty bacteria can cause eye irritation, discomfort or in worse cases, serious eye infections such as pink eye and styes.
