One of the biggest issues with the beauty products is that like every product with chemicals, they also have an expiry date. When the products go past its expiry date, the products should not be used as the chemicals in the product can have harmful effects on the skin. When you look closely on the beauty products’ labels, you will see a small jar with its lid off and a number written on it. This signifies the number of months that the product can be used after you have opened it. Therefore, if you buy a skin cream in January of 2016 and you see the small jar says 24, it means you have 24 months to use up the cream. It means 24 months from the time you open the bottle and not the date from which you buy them. Therefore if you opened your cream in February of 2016, you have until February of 2018 to use up the cream. After that, kindly dispose off the cream after it expires. The best way to remember this is to write the date on which you opened your product.
