Wholesome Magnificence: How To Maintain Your Make-up Merchandise Clear – Way of life
Maintaining personal hygiene has been strongly recommended to protect yourself from COVID-19. This includes routine washing of your hands and awareness of your surroundings, especially when using public transport and facilities.
It is also necessary to keep your hands away from your face and make sure that any product you apply to your skin is clean.
When it comes to the hygiene of your facial products, Jakarta-based beauty technology company Social Bella has introduced several ways to keep your makeup items clean and safe.
Keep your hands clean
Before and after wearing makeup, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and running water for 20 seconds. According to the World Health Organization, washing is helpful in removing viruses that may be on your hands.
Avoid applying makeup in public places
It is recommended that you apply your makeup at home rather than on public transport or toilets to minimize possible exposure to viruses and bacteria.
Do not exchange your makeup products with anyone else
Make-up enthusiasts sometimes lend or swap their beauty products with friends or family members. While this may be fun, keep in mind that these items allow the transmission of bacteria and viruses. It’s safer to wear your own products.

Clean your beauty products and tools regularly
It is important that you wash your beauty products and tools regularly. Dip your brushes and sponges in warm water and wipe the packaging of the products with antibacterial wipes or other alcohol-based cleaning agents. Dry all packaging and tools well before using them.
During the COVID-19 outbreak in Indonesia, the public is urged to stay home to limit the spread of the disease and to practice social distancing. Shopping online can meet your beauty product needs without leaving your home.
Avoid applying makeup samples and testers directly to your face
Always use caution when trying to apply makeup samples and testers to your face in the store. For example, if you are trying on lipstick testers, apply them to your hand instead.
Sociolla, an offline e-commerce beauty salon managed by Social Bella, has made efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 by making in-store product testers unavailable. Customers are also not allowed to have physical contact with shop assistants and it is recommended that the assistants provide product information.
As of Friday, there have been 369 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 32 deaths in Indonesia. The disease has also spread to 17 provinces. (we / wng)
