Are You Contaminating Your Skin Care?

This post is brought to you by our Esthetics Experts Panel, composed of skin care professionals, educators + authorities with decades of experience in the industry.

Bacteria, germs, impurities. Call them what you want, but did you know you could be introducing them into your skin care products every day?

It's true: when you stick your fingers in creams or gels packed in jars, you invite in dirt and debris right from your hands. A recent popular trend even has countless people applying certain serums and makeup products with a dropper that directly touches their skin instead of hovering the dropper to dispense, which compromises the formula when the dropper is placed back into its bottle. These unwelcome germs can disrupt a product's effectiveness and cause problems for your skin in the process. So how do you avoid contamination and ensure your skin gets 100% product effectiveness?

how to prevent skin care contamination

Since our very beginning, Bioelements products, including our moisturizers, exfoliators and facial mask products, come pre-packaged with their own convenient spatula. This mini-applicator dispenses the perfect amount of product without the risk of contamination. Just scoop it out from the jar and onto your finger to apply, then simply rinse the spatula clean for the next use.

the most important skin care step for healthy skin

Did you know that the most important step of in a skin care routine is one you may be skipping every time? Washing your hands before you start applying products is critical to ensuring cleanliness and preventing any lingering germs from getting onto and under your skin. We also strongly recommend sanitizing the outside of your bottles and jars regularly when you’re wiping down your bathroom countertop to even further stop the spread of unwelcome bacteria. Never underestimate the importance of a clean routine to prevent contamination and to keep your skin healthy and safe.

As much as I can I use spatula for my beauty habits, but especially and always for my eye cream.

I absolutely always use a clean spatula or instrument of some sort or another to get product from a container! I never, ever use my fingers. As an esthetician and a medical assistant, I am well aware of how many bacteria -good and bad- we have on our hands, especially in the midst of cleansing a client’s face. I never take a shortcut on safety, but I sure see it in other salons and nail care establishments and it always makes me shudder.
