Some individuals may be allergic to certain ingredients in makeup products.
Some makeup products, particularly those with pigments, may contain trace amounts of heavy metals like lead, mercury, and arsenic.
Makeup can be susceptible to contamination with bacteria, mold, and other microorganisms.
Certain chemicals in makeup, such as parabens, phthalates, and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives, have been associated with potential health concerns.
Makeup, especially those with certain chemicals or fragrances, can cause skin irritation or exacerbate conditions like eczema and dermatitis.
Using makeup beyond its expiration date can increase the risk of bacterial growth and deterioration of product quality.
Read product labels to identify potential allergens or harmful ingredients. Choose products with fewer known irritants if you have sensitive skin.
Wash your hands before applying makeup, and regularly clean your makeup brushes and sponges to prevent bacterial growth.
Before applying a new makeup product to your face, consider doing a patch test on a small area of skin to check for allergic reactions.
Dispose of makeup products after they have reached their expiration dates.
