Some skin care brands are no help when it comes to managing your product use. Seriously though, I’m not joking. Have you ever felt like some products disappear a lot quicker than others? Most of us do not want to have to stop using products. Quite the contrary actually. If it were our decision, we’d have more backups of product than we can even count.
Here’s what typically happens. You start using a product that’s been sitting in your medicine cabinet for half a year. That product once had a shelf life of one-year, yet that’s been drastically reduced by 50%. Now factor in the environmental factors such as excessive wetness and the damp environment in the bathroom and boom! You’ve got a product that’s set to only last you a couple of weeks at best.
That’s why it’s imperative that you manage your skin care products properly in order to make them last longer.
I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve which I’m set to share with you. Here are some tried and true ways to stretch the life of your skin care products (without reducing the effectiveness).
The first thing you’ll want to remember is to store them properly. Storing your serums, creams, and other skin products correctly is super important. Unfortunately, storing them in the best manner isn’t going to be the most convenient way. Remember, if you want skin products to last, then you’ve got to store them in a cool, dark and dry location. The best place to store these products is in the refrigerator.
Did I mention that the method in which you extract your product matters? It most certainly does and if you’re not extracting the products carefully and sanitarily then you’re going to reduce the life the product. For example, if you’re using a product that comes in a basic jar, then don’t just jam your fingers into the jar to remove the product. That’s a horrible approach and one that screams bacteria. Opt for extracting with a spoon or something of that nature instead.
Another thing that you’ll want to take into consideration is the base of the product. I hate to say it, but water-based products just aren’t going to last as long as oil-based. Reason being, oil-based products are less susceptible to becoming contaminated with bacteria. If you’re using any products which are water-based, then use them quickly.
The last thing that you’ll want to consider are the actual ingredients within the products you’re using. If the products contain certain ingredients such as vitamin C, then you’ll want to use them quickly. It’s an unstable ingredient and unfortunately, the storage time as well as the oxygen exposure all factor into things. Assuming you want to use the product while it lasts, then use it quickly and store it properly in the interim.
I guess what I’m trying to say here is that a little bit of effort and knowledge can really go a long way. That holds true with just about any type of health and wellness product. Now, if you’re looking for a couple of products to purchase, then head on over to the homepage and just start clicking around. Chances are you’ll find a product or two which you can consider using.
