CLEAN MAKEUP Tips apply



Published: Sat, April 16, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.


When you're at the beauty counter, you may end up picking up more than a new lipstick. Germs might linger on makeup testers -- and then be transfered from one customer to another. Prevention magazine explores the risks of cosmetics counters and tips to avoid them in the April issue. Here are some suggestions:
Avoid testing on lips and eyes, which are the most vulnerable to infection. Use the back of your hand instead.
Try makeup on at a counter manned by a salesperson who can oversee hygienic usage, and use single-use applicator. Or ask an in-store makeup artist, who likely has been trained to use sanitary measures, for help.
Wash your hands or use a hand sanitizer before and after visiting a makeup counter.
Test products that come from a shaker or squeeze-pump dispenser, not an open container.
