68% only replace natural skin care products when they run out

68% only replace natural skin care products when they run out
The majority of women only replace natural skin care products when they have run out, however long that takes, according to a survey.

Research by Debenhams found that just 68 per cent of women replace make-up and skin care when it has run out.

The findings bore similarity to a recent survey by Mintel, which found that just one in four women admit to discarding their make-up, shampoo and shower gel if they smell funny or become discoloured.

Debenhams warned that natural skin care products used after the expiration date can lead to irritation and infection.

In addition, 60 per cent of those surveyed admitted they shared natural beauty products with friends and family, which increases the risk of infection.

'We wouldn't hesitate to chuck out mouldy or bacteria-ridden food and the same standards should apply to the lotions and potions and that we put on our skin,' said Sara Stern, director of cosmetics at Debenhams.
