Where do you store your skin care collection? Do you display them on your #skincareshelfie or in your bathroom? If the latter, you may want to rethink that. The bathroom isn’t the most ideal place for skin care products since heat and steam can affect the products’ efficacy. The only products that should be placed in the bathroom are facial cleansers.
Apart from displaying your products on a shelf, you can also keep them in a mini skin care fridge or your regular refrigerator. Why store your products in a fridge? Doing so can prolong a product’s shelf life, provide soothing benefits and help calm puffiness.
Now the real question is: what skin care products can you store in the fridge? Keep reading to find out!
Vitamin C Serums
Vitamin C serums are known to oxidize much quicker than other serums, especially when exposed to air and light. To prevent a Vitamin C serum from losing its potency, store it in the fridge. Keep it away from direct sunlight to prolong its shelf life.
Yes, face mists are refreshing, and they’re even more so when used straight from the fridge. Nothing beats the feeling of spritzing a chilled face mist all over your face, especially on a hot day.
To revive your skin midday, go for Secret Key’s Starting Treatment Aura Mist. For a boost of intense nourishment, try blanc doux’s Prebiotic-Cera Cream Mist, which is a cream-infused mist packed with prebiotics and ceramides to leave skin balanced and supple. For skin that’s prone to redness, use SIORIS’s Falling Into The Rose Mist to instantly soothe skin and reduce redness.
Storing sheet masks in the fridge helps reduce puffiness and provides a cooling effect. On busy days when you need a product to soothe your stressed-out complexion, grab a chilled sheet mask to calm both your skin and mind.
For an even more relaxing experience, put your face roller or gua sha in the fridge along with your sheet mask, and use them together. Massaging the face with a cold face tool provides de-puffing benefits and helps tighten pores.
Eye Cream and Eye Patches
If you wake up with puffy eyes in the morning, applying cooled eye cream will help them look less puffy. You can also cool eye patches in the fridge for this purpose. Chilled eye patches are the perfect way to perk up tired eyes. If you didn’t get a good night’s sleep, use a combination of chilled eye patches and eye cream to make it look like you’ve had plenty of beauty sleep!
Aloe Vera Gel
With summer only a few months away, it’s a good idea to store aloe vera gel in the fridge, especially if you easily get sunburned. Aloe vera doesn’t just help with sunburn; it also treats minor burns and soothes itchiness or inflammation. The next time you need something light and soothing to relieve skin, grab an aloe vera gel like AROMATICA’s Soothing Aloe Vera Gel straight from the fridge.
