Make-up products found infected with deadly bugs

Next time after doing the make-ups, make sure that you clean the brush, sponge and the like products.

Because, most of the make-up products like beauty blenders, mascara and lip gloss are contaminated with potentially life threatening superbugs, according to a new research.

The study by the researchers from Aston University said that the make-up products used by millions in the world are contaminated with deadly bugs like E.coli and Staphylococci, because most are not being cleaned and are used far beyond their expiry dates,.

The research found that bacteria that can cause illnesses ranging from skin infections to blood poisoning were found in nine out of ten of the products. The relatively new beauty blenders — sponges used to apply skin foundation products — were found to have the highest levels of potentially harmful bacteria — with the vast majority (93 per cent) not having ever been cleaned, despite more than two thirds (64 per cent) being dropped on the floor at some point during use.

The research is the first to look at beauty blender products like sponges which are endorsed by celebrities. Such sponges are estimated to have sold over 6.5million worldwide.

The researchers found these products are particularly susceptible to contamination as they are often left damp after use, which creates an ideal breeding ground for harmful bacteria.
