Body Health
Now you have to consider again if you often exchange or lend clothes and lipstick with friends. It turns out that exchanging personal items with others is very risky for transmitting many diseases whose symptoms we may not even experience. A study found an astonishing fact that a number of the tester or makeup samples provided to be tested in large stores turned out to contain E-coli, Staphylococcus, and Streptococcus bacteria. E-coli bacteria that cause digestive disorders usually move from the hands of people who do not wash their hands after going to the toilet, then he touches the item. This is very likely to occur with makeup and certain items that are used interchangeably. Here are those things.


You need to know that bacteria will always be on every surface of the skin of the human body. Although not dangerous, these bacteria can sometimes cause infection. Underwear can contain germs from feces and fungi from a person's genital infection. These germs are dangerous because they can last on the fabric for a long time. If the underwear is not washed properly, the germs will also spread to other clothes that are washed with the underwear. This is why underwear, needs to be replaced every day and it is recommended that you not lend to others. Clothes such as tracksuits and clothes used for cooking must be washed immediately after you use them.
