The Coronavirus pandemic has made hygiene a topmost priority for all. Strapping on masks, topping up sanitiser and taking utmost care to remain as contact-less as possible, precaution in every aspect has become almost mandatory. So are you following the same protocol with your beauty products? Think about it. Powders like blushes and compacts are used repeatedly with the same applicator. Lipstick bullets, eyeliner sticks and mascara wands cover the features many times over. Brushes and sponges go back and forth from the face to the tubes and pans. Beauty tools like nail files and combs aren't spared either due to their high degree of skin contact. Even if you are the only person using the respective tools and products, accumulation of dead skin cells, oil and residue is bound to occur. With hygiene being an important concern, extend it to your makeup products and beauty tools. Using disinfectant sprays, UV machines and sanitising formulas will help keep them free of infection, bacteria and any other baddies.
