Dear Women: 5 Reasons You Should Stop Sharing Make -Up

Sharing makeup items consciously or unconsciously is not hygienic as makeup product and tools (especially) are the perfect breeding places for bacteria (they glide across flaky/oily skins, chapped lips using wet/creamy products etc) so apart from the possibility of bacteria growth on it based on your skin alone, why add your friend's to it?

1. Risk of eye infections
Sharing mascara, eyeliners, eye shadows can cause bad infections to the eye. This is extremely worse for those who wear contacts as the tear ducts can easily get infected by dirt and grime as well as bacteria transferred from a person to the other.

2. Risk of contaminating an entire makeup product
Sharing makeup product like loose powder attracts the risk of contaminating the whole powder - applying it with brush(es) that has been transferred from a person (and 'their bacteria') to the other - a product in a jar for instance get contaminated at just one touch/dab!

3. Risk of cold sores from shared lipstick
Sharing lipsticks, balm and glosses are the major cause of cold sores for ladies. Even when a person doesn't look like they have (obvious) sores, there is a risk of them carrying/harbouring the virus!

4. Risk of staph infection
Sharing makeup is one common cause of Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis which can stay hidden in the makeup which just requires the perfect conditions/bacteria to set off the infection!

5. Risk of acne/breakouts
Sharing brushes and applicators for instance may trigger acne breakouts because sharing those means getting someone else's bacteria, acne etc to touch the other party's face which can't be good for the skin!
