Are Expired Cosmetics Lurking in Your Bathroom?

Creating a healthy home environment involves more than just the food we eat and the non-toxic cleaning products we use in our home. Health extends to the products we put on our skin and in our bodies! 

Expired Cosmetics

Are your bathroom cabinets overloaded with cosmetic items to the point you couldn’t say when you purchased them? 

No problem! Here’s a quick recap of the life of cosmetic items that should be purged if they’ve been lurking in your cabinets or drawers for too long.

Begin the toss with the obvious items. For example, cold tablets that have an expiration date on them. I’ve worked with many clients where we have tossed trashbags full of outdated cold tablets and prescriptions. 

Organize your items by category and contain them appropriately. For prescription medications, make sure they’re out of the reach of children!

When you go through your items, consider putting travel-sized items aside (that haven’t expired) in a basket or zipped pouch for guests or travel.

Here’s a list of the most common items you can toss

Bar soap: 18 months to 3 years

Bath gel, body wash: 3 years

Bath oil: 1 year

Body lotion: 3 years

Conditioner: 2 to 3 years

Deodorant, opened: 1 to 2 years

  14. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
