May is here, spring is in the air and a time for new beginnings.  This is the time of year I recommend taking a look in your makeup bag and at your skincare products.  Winter has passed and the summer months are coming also, your skincare needs change a bit as well.

It’s not always clear if your foundation or skin products are still ok to use or if it’s time to toss and replace.  Using expired products are not only well, let’s say kinda yucky, but can also cause trouble for your skin.  Noooooo! Yikes!

How to Know How Healthy Your Products Are

I always recommend my clients look for three things when considering how healthy your products are…If the product looks different than when you first opened it, toss it.  If there is any change in texture, color, smell or if the product begins to separate, toss it.  Or any tools used over an infected area and can’t be sanitized definitely, TOSS IT.

Good Products that Actually Work

Now having said this, most products should last a year. The Cosmedix and SkinScript product lines that we showcase here at our office have no preservatives or additives and are 95-99% vegan so it’s best to use them up as recommended by our very knowledgeable staff.

We are always happy to go over your products with you and give suggestions.  Remember, spring is here so you may want to “hold off” on some products and substitute with others more suitable for the SUNNY DAYS AHEAD!   Just book a free consult, bring your products in or have a list and we will take care of the rest!  Looking forward to talking with you and helping you look and feel your best… Happy Spring, your Esty, Danielle J

***TIP:  We have a super fabulous tinted mineral sunscreen, Tizo, that feels so soft and can be used as primer under makeup! Cult fav, check it out.
