How to Know When Your Beauty Products are Expired

This is a beauty products article

It's easy with food, for the most part, to know when it's better in the bin than on your plate, but with beauty products, which rarely boast a written expiration date, it's a different story. See how to tell if your products have "gone bad" without you knowing.

Hello Gorgeous!
Today I was reading a newsletter and it was about emergency preparedness for your family in the event of a disaster! (God bless Japan and speed the healing of that great nation!)
So as I continued to read, I realized that just because there is a natural disaster there is no reason to look bad when it's bleak!
So my emergency beauty bag now contains:
1. Sunscreen
2. Eyedrops
3. Mascara
4. Dark green eyeliner
5. Eyeshadow-dual compact with light beige and brown this way I can do my eyebrows, a simple day makeup look or smoky eye.
6. Dual finish compact for use as foundation and powder
7. Nude lipliner
8. High pigment gloss with spf
9. Comodynes face wipes to remove all my emergency makeup
10.Travel set of brushes (powder/blush/slant tip/eyeshadow)

Phew! I'm ready for anything now! Read below and think about it!
*NOTE* This is a newsletter I received and found it interesting, maybe you will to? I got it from Off The Grid News. Enjoy!

This has been the decade of disasters. Beginning with the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 that saw the destruction of the Twin Towers to the nightmarish aftermath of Hurricane Katrina; from massive flooding and wildfires in the United States to devastating earthquakes in Haiti and Chile; from Mexican cartel incursions across our border to the mass killings at Fort Hood; and now the unprecedented destruction in Japan that has seen coast-side cities wiped off the face of the map and nuclear power plants melting down, the last ten years has seen an ominous spike in events that only makes disaster preparation that much more of a necessity for all of us.

It doesn't matter if it's a situation that happens in your home, in your community, at the workplace, at a state or national level... if you're not prepared, the cost of that inaction can be greater than anything you've ever imagined.

The ice storm in northeastern Oklahoma in December 2007 left thousands without power for a week or longer.

Few were prepared.

Major floods in July 2008 overwhelmed Iowa and portions of Illinois. Thousands fled water-filled homes, but it was a week or more before power was restored. Because of flood contamination, there was no drinking water, and the sewers were overflowing from the deluge.

Hurricane Ike devastated most of the coastal area of Galveston, Texas in 2008, and once again, all systems of infrastructure they had relied upon for years were gone in a moment.

If you were placed in a situation where the TV newscasters were warning you to get out of an area or batten down the hatches, would you be prepared? Would you even know how to prepare? If you answered "No" to both those questions, don't worry... you're not alone.

According to an article in the December 18th, 2006 edition of USA Today, "The non-profit Council for Excellence in Government [has] developed a Public Readiness Index as part of its report, rating people's preparedness on a one-to-10 scale based on answers to 10 questions. The questions range from whether people know about their community's disaster plan and how to find the emergency broadcasting channel on the radio, to whether they've prepared a home disaster kit and established a meeting place for family members.

The average score on the index was 3.31."

And this more than five years after 9/11 and a little more than a year after the devastating hurricanes that wiped out New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. The thing most dangerous to a nation's citizens doesn't appear to be their government.

It seems to be their complacency.

What's On Your Preparedness List? Do You Even Have a List?

The recent ice and snow in the Southeast this winter drove home an inconvenient truth.
If you try to prepare for an emergency while it's upon you, you will fail.

The words "snow" and "ice" had barely left the meteorologist's mouth before Walmart's parking lot was overflowing. Bread? Nothing left. Milk? Forget it. Canned goods? Nope. Water? Better figure out a way to melt ice and snow.

I went home to cupboards that, while not bare, were not exactly stocked with items to get me through an ice storm. I was going to have to get pretty creative. And then it happened.
My central unit died.

I didn't even have an alternative heat source. There was no sense in getting out to find a spot heater either. Those were gone before the bread and milk.

I wasn't too smart. I had let my "I'll take care of that tomorrow" attitude get in the way of smart thinking and preparation, and now I faced something that could, if events ran along the same vein as the last ice storm we faced, put me in a perilous situation.

I didn't even have a list that I was keeping of items I needed. It was all in my head, stuffed in the back behind what I considered more important things and pursuits.

What I Needed...

...besides a big kick in the backside, was Solutions From Science's manual Gone Before You Get There.
