Hey FaceTory Fam! 💝
This one is for all you skincare junkies! Do you ever find yourself opening your drawer and finding a sheet mask that you purchased...hmmm… a few months ago, and you’re like, “OMG I forgot I had you!” Yup, we’ve all been there. And although it’s super common, it’s also extremely important to take note of the expiration dates! You don’t want to put an old sheet mask on your face (this also goes for any skincare actually)! So here are our tips for organizing your skincare products. 🤗1. Keep track of your skincare items by documenting them! Have a little calendar or notebook for your skincare and write down when you open them. This will save you the headache of trying to remember when you popped it open later down the line.
2. Sheet masks are kind of tricky because they are so thin and compact, you can literally place them anywhere! We recommend organizing them by expiration date so you know when you have to use them by. If you need help with reading the expiration dates on your skincare products, you’re in luck! We have a blog post dedicated to that. Check it out here!
3. Create an excel sheet/ spreadsheet. It’s so handy and will help you stay organized. Plus inputting information will be really quick! We've created a template for your convenience and you can download it here.
4. And for an easy tip, add a small sticker on the packaging! This will help you keep track of when you opened your product and when it expires. Usually, you’ll find a small image of an opened jar with a number and the letter ‘M’ (example: 12M). This means that it is good to use for 12 months after opening. And let’s be honest, 12 months from now, will you remember when you opened a product?😬 Now, aren’t you glad you slapped on that sticker? 😉
Let’s give a big applause for organization! We hope this helped and if you start a skincare log or excel sheet, please take a photo and share it with us! We’d love to see your awesome skincare organization skills. Thanks for reading and as always, just keep glowing! ✨
