It is a well-known fact that women are always into everything that makes them more beautiful, and make-up in probably at the top of this list. However, while adding another eyeshadow, lipgloss, lipstick or another item to their make-up collection, women hardly ever think of the expiration date of these products, missing the obvious dangers coming right from their cosmetic purse, and precisely bacteria and fungi are responsible for numerous diseases caused by the expired make-up like allergic contact, perioral or irritant contact dermatitis, even depigmentation of skin. After a certain time, our make-up will surely become a home to the bacteria like Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, fungus Candida albicans, and molds like rhizopus, aspergillus, and penicillium. One can easily determine the expiration date of a lipstick. If oil drops happen to occur on its surface, in addition to an unpleasant smell, it means this lipstick is no longer usable.
