Beauty Resolution 1: I will get rid of my expired products
We're sorry to say this but skincare and makeup products do not last forever!
You may be proud of your huge beauty collection but that probably means a lot of your products go unused. We recommend going through your collection once every six months and clearing out everything that you don't use or has expired. A great little trick is to write the date you opened each product directly on the package so you'll know when it's time to bin it
