Fresh Start: How Often You Should Replace Your Favorite Beauty Products

It's one thing to put together your perfect makeup and face care essentials. What's even more important is knowing when to rotate out a treasured product when it's past its prime. This way, your skin will stay healthier and your look will continue to be on point.

Knowing when it's time to show staples like mascara, eyeshadow and more the trash can, it makes it that much easier (and cost-effective) to try a new brand that you've had your eye on. Disposing of makeup in a timely manner also helps avoid unneeded infections.
