Most in-use make-up products such as beauty blenders, mascara and lip gloss might be contaminated with potentially life-threatening superbugs, including E. coli and Staphylococci, according to a study. Bacteria that can cause illnesses ranging from skin infections to blood poisoning if used near eyes, mouth or cuts or grazes were found in nine out of ten of the products, said the researchers from Aston University in the UK. The study, published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology, shows that make-up products are contaminated with potentially fatal bacteria since they are often not cleaned and are used far beyond their expiry dates. This risk is amplified in people with a weak immune system, who are more likely to contract infections from opportunistic bacteria, they said.
