Cosmetics are products on which the vast majority of women spend a large sum of money each year. In some cases, because good cosmetics are not cheap, and in others, because cheap products do not have a long life. In any case, many women wonder why they last so short.
Depending on the cosmetic product we are talking about, we can say that it is a long-term investment, or on the contrary, it is a whim that may not be in your hands for more than two weeks.
The problem is not that the products expire or simply wear out: many times, we do not know how to care for them.
The use of cosmetics is part of the daily routine of a good number of people, whether for work reasons or merely aesthetic purposes. That is why attention should be paid to their care because even if it does not seem so, they can pose a potential risk to comprehensive health.
Regarding this last aspect, the case of a woman who sued a major cosmetic brand has recently gained relevance on the internet. The reason? He claims to have caught herpes after trying a lipstick in one of his stores.
In the lawsuit, the brand is accused of failing to warn consumers about the health risks of lipstick samples found in stores, which has caused “incurable illness” and emotional stress.
To avoid cases like this, experts recommend carrying out a series of hygiene tips in the use of cosmetics, such as:
- Change after an illness. After contracting an infectious disease on the skin of the face or eyes, such as conjunctivitis, it is important to make the change of cosmetics.
- In stores or demonstrations, don’t try products other than disposable presentations (that are thrown away after being used by a person).
