Also, the efficiency of active ingredients become compromised over time. Your skin may react and cause you skin lesions, rashes, blisters, acne or even redness and swelling.

Organization 101: How to Keep Small Items Organized

How do you keep small items in your home? Specially if it is something you don't get to use on everyday basis and its too small to keep on your drawers. I always avoid small items like pins and clips clutter anywhere in the house so it wont end up missing the next time I need it.
