Mascara Wearers Beware

If you are a daily mascara user, there's something you should know. Each time you stroke mascara onto your lashes the applicator picks up lots of bacteria that are resting there - then you put it back into a nice, dark, warm tube where they breed. Lovely.

Put the date on your tube - after 3 months toss it - whether it's finished or not. Keeping it longer than 3 months puts you in danger of a nasty eye infection. And besides FabSugar has the scoop on all of the new mascaras out there and now you have a great excuse to give them a try.

And in case you didn't already know this, avoid sharing your mascara with friends - it's another germ spreader.

Fit's Tip: If you are an occasional mascara wearer, keep it in the fridge, and it'll be good for 6 months. But you might find it too annoying to apply because it gets thick when it's cold.
