Money certainly does not grow on trees, so getting the most out of your products is the goal of every beauty-lista. If you noticed that your mascara is starting to look flaky, chances are this is an old bottle that needs to be pitched. Mascara only flakes if it has dried out too much or is has outlived its shelf life.
To get the most out of your mascara always make sure that you replace the cap back on the bottle tightly. This will prevent any drying out of the product. Moreover, try adding 3 drops of saline solution to your tube of mascara to and mix it around with the wand. The saline can also help to extend the life of your favorite mascara formula.
