Beauty Tips We Need To Know… But Probably Don’t

There are some things that don’t get discussed very often…  for example when was the last time you asked your girl friend how old her make-up is or how often she washes her bra? These are things that don’t come up in everyday conversation, so it leaves a lot of unanswered questions.

This post is here to answer some of those random questions you may or may not know the answer to.

1 | How long should you keep your mascara before buying a new one?
-Mascara expires faster than any other make-up and should be thrown out after 4 months or so.

2 | Does nail polish expire?

-If you’re like me you have a ton nail polishes that you’ve collected for years, so I hate to tell you this but anything over 1 year should be thrown out.

3 | How often should you wash your make-up brushes?

-Wash every 2-3 months in a mild detergent or baby shampoo.

4 | How many wears can you get out of your bra before washing it?

-After 3 to 4 wears, unless you sweat a lot then you should be washing every wear.

5 | How often should you buy a new toothbrush?

-Every three to four months or once the bristles are frayed.

6 | How many wears can you get out of jeans before having to wash them?

-Five to six wears. Although there are some that advocate washing as little as possible.

7 | How often should I wash my sheets?

-Weekly is ideal, but once every other week is ok.
