You might share everything with your BFF, but beauty products should not be one of them! We know that sharing is caring, however you should know when to say no! Because sharing something as simple as a razor could possibly get you crazy bacterial infections or even diseases as nasty as HIV.
Here are 7 things we recommend you to keep to yourself.
1. Eye Makeup
Your eyes are like a VIP entrance for bacteria, making it easy to get infections like pinkeye. They just don’t have the same protection layers that the skin does.
Razors have the possibility of drawing bloods or fluids, leaving bacteria on the blade even if you rinse it. Sharing Razors makes you vulnerable to infections, hepatitis and there’s even the chance of getting HIV.
It may not seem like a big deal, but plucking your hair with someones tweezers has the same risks as using a razor. It is very susceptible to infections.
4. Makeup Brushes
Makeup brushes are the ultimate place for bacteria to burrow themselves in, because bacteria often grow on damp places. You’re basically brushing someone’s germs onto your face when you borrow her brush.
5. Jars of cream
Everytime someone dips her finger into a jar of lotion or cream, bacteria transfers to it and once again you put that stuff on your face, exposing yourself to skin infections. To keep it safe, stick to your own jars and always wash your hands before putting it in the jar!
6. Face-cleansing brush
These brushes are filled with dead skin cells which are full of bacteria. Again use your own brush, unless you like the idea of applying someone else’s dead skin cells into your pores.
7. Lip gloss
You eat food every day, so your mouth is the biggest source of bacteria. Also the lips have a very weak layer of skin leaving it vulnerable to infections like herpes!
