Preventing cross-infection

Preventing cross-infection and/or contamination in Makeup.

Applying your makeup may seem second nature to some women, but don’t let routine cause harm to your skin. Staying hygienic, paying attention to whom you share your makeup with, and watching for expiration dates are necessary when avoiding contamination. Dirty brushes, unwashed hands, and double dipping can cause big issues. Poor makeup hygiene and contaminated makeup products can cause infectious conditions like conjunctivitis and sties.

There are several precautions that can be taken to avoid the spread of infection and to prevent micro-organisms from being passed from your skin to your makeup.

The quality of makeup also makes a huge difference. 100% mineral-based makeup can help avoid irritation and have natural anti-inflammatory properties along with SPF. Be aware of low-grade mineral makeups impersonating high quality options like Glo Skin Beauty.
