So if you are a crazy beauty junkie and must shop, there are certain precautions you should take when you go out shopping. Read on to find out.
DONT TEST & TRY
Buying beauty products means testing and trying them out first. But can you imagine trying the same product that has been used by so many different people? Don’t forget when you do that, you become vulnerable to massive hygiene risks.
TESTERS ARE A BIG NO
Avoid using public makeup (testers at shop), especially lipstick or any kind of eye makeup. Corona or many other viruses can be easily transmitted through these beauty products.
ASK FOR DISPOSABLE APPLICATORS
Make sure to ask for a disposable applicator, wipe off products like powder and lipsticks with a wet tissue then use a sanitizer properly to disinfect it.
WATCH OUT FOR CLOSED CONTAINERS
Container should be tightly closed and sealed before purchase. If you see an open container dont test it at any part of your body.
CLEAN YOUR BRUSHES
Use isopropyl alcohol to clean tools like brushes. Don’t forget to clean your brushes and applicators before testing.
DONT TEST EYELINERS & MASCARAS DIRECTLY
Avoid testing mascaras and liners directly. You can use the disposable wand for such items. Eye makeup is one of the biggest virus transmitters.
WASH YOUR HANDS ONCE DONE
When you are done, wash your hands properly with soap for at least 20 seconds to rinse off all the germs, and then sanitize. You can also use alcoholic nail remover pad if you don’t have sanitizer.
