Can Your Beauty Products Contain The COVID-19 Virus?

There are many misconceptions about The COVID-19 pandemic and the CDC released guidelines for sanitizing almost every surface, but what about our daily makeup and skincare products? In the era of social media and beauty brands reaching far to consumers and the number of products that each one of use on a daily basis had led to many questions about the safety of beauty products.

What we do know is that Coronavirus can live on surfaces, including your beauty products, anywhere from two hours to nine days depending on the surface.

Taking the appropriate measures to stop the spread of the virus can be done only if you have been exposed to it or have the virus.

According to health experts, if you feel you have or have been exposed to the virus, the CDC’s cleaning recommendations apply to the outer packaging by wiping down a lotion bottle or lipstick tube with a Lysol or Clorox wipe. But obviously if you’ve used the product inside it is potentially contaminated and it will need to be thrown away. The good news is the virus won’t live on all ingredients. Makeup with higher alcohol contents could per health officials “render the virus inactive”. Products with less alcohol pose a higher risk of becoming contaminated.

So do your due diligence and throw away any opened products that have or may have come in contact with the virus. Sanitize your makeup brushes with antibacterial soap buy Pregabalin 300 mg online or pour some alcohol into a small jar, dip your brush tip in and swirl for a few seconds. Wipe off any remaining alcohol and lay flat to dry.

Stay safe!
