How long do you keep your beauty products for sale in Pakistan
We do not laugh with the life of cosmetics! It is very important to know how long you can keep them (especially when they are open) because using them expired is not necessarily safe.
Good to know: now on almost all cosmetics, we find:
If the product has a shelf life of less than 30 months: The expiry date (DLU) which is the expiry date of the product.
If the product has a shelf life of more than 30 months: The period of use after opening (PAO): symbolized by a small open pot and which indicates in months, how long after the first use it is possible to keep it .
Note: the PAO does not apply to perfumes or deodorants.
This information is not to be taken lightly because obviously, there are risks to use an expired beauty product that is applied to the skin (redness, itching, plaques …). So look closely at the mentions on the packaging of your favorite cosmetics.
To know when it is time to separate from your favorite treatment or your lipstick special appointment, sometimes just read the expiry date on the beauty product in question. Indeed, since 2005, the optimal duration of use is indicated simply by using a pictogram representing an open cream jar accompanied by a number or a number followed by the letter M for “month”. For example, if it is noted on your “12M” treatment, it means that you can use it for 12 months after opening. Obviously, this date is only an estimate since the life of your products also depends on how you use them and where you keep them.
To see more clearly, you can rely on the following recommendations:
Know that it is the care that is kept for the shortest time. We keep them for 6 to 9 months and we prefer packaging with an airless system that prevents the proliferation of bacteria. On the make-up side, the mascara and the liquid eyeliner keep for a maximum of 6 months. The eye is a particularly fragile area, so there is no risk. The compact foundation and concealer should be thrown in the trash after a year to avoid getting pimples all over your face. On the other hand, if you have a liquid foundation in a pump bottle, you have up to 18 months after the first use to enjoy it. Eyeshadow, lipstick, sun powder or blush should be renewed every 2 years on average. It is the same for nail polish and perfumes, which, thanks to the alcohol present in their compositions prevents them from degrading too quickly. Hair care such as shampoos or masks can sit on your bathtub, staying effective for three beautiful years.
In general, if you want to keep your cosmetics as long as possible, do not forget to store them dry and away from heat and sun. Also be sure to wash your hands before each use. If the texture, color or smell of a skincare or make-up product has changed, dispose of it sparingly, even if it has only been open for 2 months.
Here is some information about this, which should be useful!

Makeup conservation: some main principles
The place and the conditions under which we keep makeup naturally influence its shelf life. Thus, for makeup products to last as long as possible, it is better to avoid:
their exposure to heat, light and moisture (do not store them in the bathroom, or leave them in a car or beach bag under a hot summer sun!)
their loan, whether to a sister or her best friend!
unhygienic handling (on a dirty counter, or without freshly washed hands, etc.).
