Girls Awake : Beauty Products You Should Never Ever Share

It’s undoubtedly tempting to watch your best freind putting up some makeup nd you wait to use the same products afetr she is done. But the real truth is , you shouldn’t until you have alcohol based wipes to sanitize it.

As there are many viruses that it easily be transmitted to you in just one makeup application.

That’s why to reduce the risks its important to use your own makeup.

1.  Makeup product that comes in JAR.

“Every time when you dip your fingers in jar, new germs contaminate the entire jar and they easily penetrate to our skin or face wherever it is applied.”

So If your beauty product comes in jar then before dipping your finger you must wash your hands an keep that product for your own personal use.

2. Lip Balm or Lipstick

You eat food everyday even lips have an extensive network of blood vessels just under the surface which absorbs anything you apply on the mouth including germs. Bacteria and viruses can easily transfer through the membranes of your mouth into your bloodstream.

That’s why it’s so important to use your own lip products, because if you pass your favorite lipstick around from girl to girl and you or your friend has the virus, it could be transferred back to you.

3. Mascara

Your favorite mascara can harbor bacteria and viruses that are easily transmissible, like conjunctivitis. Each time you pull the wand out and push it back in to lube up the brush head, you push air into the dark bottle’s base, feeding the aerobic bacteria that can survive in an oxygenated area.

The only safe way to share your mascara, if you so desire, is to practice what pro makeup artists do an never let the wand that comes with it be used; use only disposable wands to apply it, and never double dip.

4. Pressed foundation or Face Powder

As dry powders don’t hold onto bacteria the way that wet formulas do, but that doesn’t mean bacteria can’t transfer from one person to another – especially if you’re using a sponge to touch up areas around your mouth or eyes.

5. Makeup Brushes and sponges

Do not share your brushes with anyone else. Coming in contact with your own oils and germs is one thing, but being exposed to someone else’s bacteria is entirely another.

Even Sponges are squishy, porous surfaces, especially when wet, create an environment that breeds yeast and bacteria, which can lead to fungal infections, like ringworm, on the face

Lower the risk by cleaning your brush and sponge washing it weekly  with hot water and a gentle shampoo, and allowing it to dry in a well-ventilated area.

6. Cream Eyeshadows

Especially when you use your fingers to apply this type of product and have contaminated it with your own bacteria from dirty hands, it can easily transfer germs to your eyes causing eye infections.

7. Eye liners or Kajal 

You can sharpen a product and get rid of the infected part but for liquid liners, gel eyeliners, sharpies, or retractable pen applicators, you cannot do this. This is especially true for kajal, which is often used on the waterline and can come into contact with a lot of infected eye fluid.

8. Razors

Razors have the possibility of drawing bloods or fluids, which leave bacteria on the blade after rinsing, making you more vulnerable to a staph infection, hepatitis, or blood-borne viruses (like HIV, although it’s highly unlikely), hence more people using it the more risk for infection.

9. Nail Clippers

Even if it looks like both people have clean and healthy nails, clippers still pose a risk because they’re used where warts and fungus hide out on our fingers, toes, and soles. Sharing them could lead to nail fungus or even types of HPV that cause plantar warts, says Bowe. You can wipe the clippers in alcohol after each use, but you should probably just keep them to yourself.

10. Tweezers

When you’re out and realize your brows are only a few stray hairs away from being on fleek, you’re probably willing to borrow tweezers from anyone. And if you’re pulling only hairs, sharing tweezers isn’t that bad — as long as they aren’t super dirty. But when you use tweezers to dig around for an ingrown hair and puncture skin, they can quickly become tools to transfer blood-borne diseases.

To keep it germ free you can soak the tweezers in a jar of alcohol after using them if you suspect any blood is on them.

11. Antiperspirant and Deodorant

Sharing something that’s been all up in another person’s armpit is gross to begin with, but contaminated sticks can actually cause infections if germs get into nicks from shaving or ingrown hairs. Some deodorants work by killing odor-causing bacteria, so the antibacterial ingredients provide added protection. But many deodorants, especially organic kinds, just mask the smell with fragrance, so it’s easy for underarm germs to grow on the stick. You’re better off not sharing or wiping the stick down with an alcohol-soaked cotton ball first.
