Health Tip: Is Your Makeup Skin-Safe?

(HealthDay News) -- Makeup can be a great way to freshen your look. But if you're not careful, makeup can irritate your skin and eyes, says Aurora Health Care.

It offers these skin-safe makeup guidelines:

  • Toss your mascara after three months and liquid products after six months.

  • Never use makeup that smells or changes in color or texture.

  • Look for face products that include zinc oxide and have a 30 SPF rating or higher.

  • Check the Breast Cancer Fund's list of chemicals to avoid ingredients with cancer risks.

  • Always take makeup off before you go to bed.
