But constantly committing these beauty crimes will be detrimental to your skin in the long run, no matter how convenient they may be. Your makeup will only ever look as good as the skin underneath, so here are seven bad beauty habits you need to break ASAP.
Surprisingly, people are still learning that like food, your beauty products also have an expiry date that you should pay close attention to. Old makeup and skincare will start to harbor bacteria over time, with most products having a use-by date of no longer than two years. Eye products have even shorter life expectancies of just 2-3 months. What happens when you put old products on your skin? Even though they might not look much different from when you first purchased them, old makeup products can cause your skin to break out and old mascaras or eyeliners can even result in an eye infection. It's not pretty, so keep an eye on your expiry dates — it's just another way you can prevent bad skin. A bad beauty habit could be the difference between feeling sexy on a first date and wanting to cancel before you even leave the house.
