Good morning ladies and gents! And, welcome to the first post of 2017. I thought what would be a better way to start the year than taking stock of all the expired products in your shelf.
Wish you all a very Happy New Year. May it make all your dreams come true!
Okay, what I am going to confess is a cardinal sin. I do use expired products, even the food items sometimes. I am not very cautious with the dates! Well, most of the times. It is not negligence but a will born out of not wasting anything, especially if I know it would not go bad in the specified time. When was the last time wheat flour went bad just because I could not finish it in 3 months? Right?
Same applies to expired products in skin and hair care section. Of course, there are categories of products which should be discarded after their expiry dates and some can be safely used beyond them. You should just know how to choose the correct ones. So, let me mention a few products I use unabashedly even if they expire.
Hair Oils or generally Oils of any kind for Skin, Hair or Cooking
Oils are generally not considered to be expired products even beyond their before use date. Unless they become rancid, they are good to use.
I tend to store my oils properly so they never get rancid till I finish the oil. Same goes to cooking oil category and cleansing oils as well but not if they are not pure oils, mind you.
