Web Extra Tips:

Previously on "GMA" Dr. Mehmet Oz shared his tips on ways to clean makeup and keep it clean:

Buy makeup in containers that air cannot get into instead of jars or pots.

Keep an eye on expiration dates and throw away liquid foundation if the ingredients settle, separate or change.

Leave lipstick or a closed tube of mascara in the freezer overnight to kill bacteria and germs.

If you use powder foundation, scrape off the top layer occasionally.
