Is Your Makeup Dirty? | BlackDoctor

(BlackDoctor.org) — Cosmetics are supposed to enhance your beauty, but if you aren’t careful they may enhance your healthcare costs. Items like lip gloss and mascara that seem so harmless can actually cause you to end up with conditions such as bacterial infections, the flu, pink eye or even herpes.

It’s not that the products or their ingredients pose these threats. The problem arises from the fact that cosmetics are an ideal environment for nasty microorganisms, such as yeast or e.coli, to thrive.
