The Doctors: Fixing Makeup Mistakes
Countless women use makeup daily as a part of their routine. The Doctors had a warning to prevent you from getting a fungus in your pursuit of beauty. That’s what happened to Sandra when she asked for a color match at her local department store. Learn how to avoid what happened to her and some other common Makeup Mistakes.
The Drs TV: Fungal Infection from Department Store Makeup
The clerk at the store put makeup on Sanda using her bare hands. She said that the skin felt irritated right away, and she took off the makeup. The next day, she woke up with dark sores beneath her eyes.
It turned out that Sandra had suffered a Fungal Infection after being exposed to that makeup. Dr Andrew Ordon reminded everyone that clean hands are very important when applying makeup, because they can be a path for bacteria to get into the skin, leading to problems like Sandra had.
The Doctors: Old Foundation Sponges
Dr Rachael Ross weighed in with some makeup mistakes and solutions. First, she said that you should stop reusing foundation sponges. There are sponges on the market that are meant to be washed and reused, but throw out your disposable sponges so they’re not growing potentially dangerous bacteria.
The Drs TV: Sanitize Makeup Brushes
When is the last time you cleaned your makeup brush? Dr Ross said that it’s easy to keep reusing a brush without thinking about how clean or dirty it is. To sanitize your own brushes, all you need is shampoo and olive oil.
The Doctors: Applying Lipstick
Finally, Dr Ordon advised that after you have had a meal, you should wipe and clean your mouth before you put on lipstick or lip gloss. Otherwise, food particles could become trapped under your makeup.
Hopefully these are helpful tips that can save you time and trouble while still helping you put your best foot forward.
