How to take care of cosmetics during the summer
Just like your skin, your cosmetics need extra special care during the summer. Here are some quick and easy tips to help you protect your precious cosmetics from the summer heat.
Keep containers closed
An absolutely essential step in caring for your cosmetics during the summer is closing them properly after each use. Leaving them open during warm weather lets them dry out quickly and even become useless. Some products like perfume can evaporate away rapidly. Others like moisturisers can get very thin in the heat and run out of open tubes, causing unnecessary wastage. Warmth also encourages harmful bacteria and other germs to grow and spread quickly if products are left open and exposed.
Store away from the sun
Another simple yet important step is to make sure that you keep your makeup in a closed bag far away from direct sunlight. Especially avoid leaving it in a closed car during the day. Although good cosmetics are rigorously tested to ensure that they can generally remain stable in heat, direct ultraviolet light and sunlight can still cause certain valuable ingredients to break down or evaporate.
Although it is so very tempting, try not to share your cosmetics with your friends and work-mates. Always handle your makeup with clean, dry hands. Sharing makeup and applying it with unwashed hands can encourage the spread of dangerous germs.
Chose good products
Always chose well-respected brands as these would be of excellent quality and adequately tested. Also buy your cosmetics from reputable sources. Unknown products may not be able to stand up safely to the rigours of the summer. Beauty regimes generally need to change during the warmer months. Makeup must be able to stand up to more perspiration and tanning as well as the pressures of long, outdoor outings. Clarins, Chanel, Kanebo and other leading brands have many exciting products to help give your skin that perfect summer glow all day long. Do remember you can buy cosmetics from the Perfume’s Club. Our excellent online cosmetics will cater all of your needs as the summer progresses.
