Do You Know What This Symbol On Your Makeup Means? If Not, You Need To

Most people are not aware that makeup and many personal cleansing products like shampoo actually have an expiration date.

Most everybody knows there are a huge number of makeup products for all types of complexions out there on the market today. However, most people don’t know that almost all of these makeup products have an important consumer protection stamped on the bottom or side of the product container.

What you are looking for is the symbol of an open jar, followed by the capital letter "M" and a number. Just keep in mind that the number indicates how many months the product is good for after you open it, and the M stands for months.

Expiration dates for makeup and cleansing products include 6 months, 12 months, 18 months and 24 months.

You should take a closer look at your makeup to make sure it has not expired. Doctors will tell you that although using makeup beyond its expiration date may seem harmless, but it can lead to a number of dangerous infections.

Experts say you should treat your makeup and cleansing products like foodstuffs, check the dates before use and always try to use up your older products before you buy new ones.
