4. Expired Products
Checking the expiration dates or looking for tell-tale signs something has spoiled is just as important for beauty products as it is for the milk in your fridge.“Any products that are older than 18 months old should be thrown away and replaced,”

“Liquids, powders, foams, sprays, and the multitude of textures and colors [found in beauty products] are a veritable breathing ground for infectious elements like bacteria and fungi.”

Of course, if a product has changed in color or texture or smells funny, replace it immediately.
