That little makeup bag you keep in your handbag may be more dangerous that you realize. If you toss in makeup, beauty blenders, hair ties (and band-aids) and rarely remove anything, you are far from alone. But you could potentially be harming your health. Guest Hanieh Sigari who is a biochemist, entrepreneur and anti-aging industry disruptor explains how the bacteria that breeds in that bag can possibly lead to skin infections, blood poisoning and extreme cases, death. Yikes!
Join Lauren and Hanieh as they discuss: what in our makeup bags is causing the problem; how bacteria and mold grow in there and how to get rid of it; how to properly clean your beauty bag; what types of makeup can potentially be the most dangerous; how to figure out when your makeup and skincare expires (this will surprise you); what to toss out and if there a general rule of thumb; and what should be in a “good” makeup bag. Lauren even goes through her makeup bag and shares what’s hiding in there. They also discuss Hanieh’s holistic, personalized skincare brand Qyral (pronounced Ky-roll) and how it empowers women.
