7 Beauty Products You Should NEVER Share With Your Friends!

By- Shreya Sharma

Some people think sharing is caring, what’s mine that is yours. But when this thought comes for beauty product, it’s not a practice to be followed. There are a number of products that should never be shared with others. It’s called personal care, not selfishness.

Here are a few beauty products you should never share with your friends.

  1. Makeup sponges or brushes

Your favorite sponges or brushes are a breeding ground for bacteria and germs thanks to its soft, porous material, which means you, can easily pass infection if you are sharing it.

  1. Lipstick or Lip balm

Believe it or not, sharing your favorite brand new matte lipstick with your bestie is actually an easy way to spread germs or infections. So, it is better not to share.

  1. Tweezers

Tweezers might not seem that controversial, but they are definitely not something you want to share. From popping pimples to cleaning under dirty nails, you never know just how your friends are using their pair of pluckers.

  1. Razors

Razors are extremely dirty. From blood to body hair, it’s definitely a tool that should only be used by you. Any bacterium that may be hiding on the surface of your skin is likely to be picked up by your razor. Sharing would mean spreading these germs. Avoid it.

  1. Liquid eyeliners

For liquid liners, gel eyeliners, sharpies, or retractable pen applicators, you cannot do this. This is especially true for kajal, which is often used on the waterline and can come into contact with a lot of infected eye fluid. Unless you really want conjunctivitis, avoid sharing eyeliners.

  1. Mascara

Your favorite mascara can harbor bacteria and viruses that are easily transmissible, like conjunctivitis. And since your eyes don’t have the same layers of protection that your skin does, it’s more susceptible to infections like pink eye. Eyelids and eyelashes are home to a plethora of bacteria and an individual can have no visible symptoms of an eye infection when they first contract it. Be safe and keep your mascara to yourself.

  1. Tub of lotions

Lotions that come in a tub or jar are convenient, but you should probably shy away from letting your friends dig in (literally) to your favorite body butter. Dipping your hands in a container of lotion or balm is a quick way to spread bacteria—even if your friends are washing their hands many different fingers are sure to spread germs.
