First of all, if your products are in a jar form which requires you to scoop out the product with your fingers, make sure that your hands are clean before removing the product. Most products contain preservatives which act to fight against microorganisms (bacteria, yeasts and moulds) that may contaminate the product. After use always screw the lid on tightly. Do not leave the product opened to allow dirt and dust to invade the contents. Products that become contaminated can cause irritation to the skin and scalp and may not yield expected results.
Most beauty/hair care products are designed to last for 18 months to two and a half years (estimate) after opened. In order to keep products in good condition, they must be stored in a cool dry place with the lids firmly closed. If your bathroom has a window, it is important to store products in an area where sunlight cannot penetrate the packaging. The bathroom cabinet is usually the first place we think to store products because in our minds that is what it was created for. If you live in a tropical climate, where it tends to get very hot, then storing your products in a hot cabinet will ruin the life of your product.
Try storing your products in a plastic bin or shoe box. By placing your products in an enclosed box, will secure it from sunlight and control the temperature. If your bathroom cabinets are normally warmer than room temperature, try placing your products on the counter. Have fun with your storage, by purchasing decorative storage containers or DIY.
Now that you are aware of how to store your products, start sorting out your treasure chest of endless goodies. Before storing your products, inspect each product that you know you've had for a long time to ensure it is still in good condition. Any products that are discolored, smell different or look unusual should be discarded.
We pay a lot of money for our beauty products so it is imperative that we take care of them.
