Check out my Top 5 Easy Hacks to Remember When to Change Your Mascara

1. Write the Date on the Tube

One of the simplest ways to remember when to replace your mascara is to write the date you opened it right on the tube. Use a permanent marker to jot down the month and year. Most mascaras should be replaced every three months to prevent bacteria build-up and to keep your lashes looking their best.

We use our phones for everything, so why not use them to remind us about mascara changes? Set a recurring reminder on your phone for every three months. This way, you’ll get a gentle nudge to switch out your old tube for a fresh one. For those who love a good old-fashioned planner or calendar, this one’s for you! Simply mark the date you need to change your mascara. Use a bright color or a fun sticker to make it stand out. It’s a fun and visual way to keep track of your beauty routine.
