The age-old debate of where to store your beauty products for maximum impact has never really been solved, but those who find themselves lacking in vanity space might want to consider a new storage option with added benefits: a skincare fridge.
Not just a chic addition to any beauty corner, but a great practical solution for those who get puffy eyes in the morning and are in need of more than just a cold teaspoon and a cup of coffee. Plus, you don’t want your treasured skincare products mixing with your weekly groceries…
Aesthetic Practitioner Natali Kelly notes that, ‘With a proper investment in a beauty fridge, you’ll find that your products are kept well within the temperature range they should be.
‘Whether you invest in a separate beauty fridge or not, chilling your lotions, gels, serums, and so on isn’t a bad idea. As anyone who’s ever put a cool compress on their forehead knows, cold temperatures have a soothing effect on the skin and can help reduce facial redness and inflammation. The cooling effect on the skin can help complement the active ingredients in serums that are designed to hydrate, soothe, and brighten the skin. And applying a cold moisturiser can help calm an inflamed skin barrier for symptomatic relief of itching,’ Kelly continues. Why not store everything from face mists and face rollers to sheet masks and eye creams in your skincare fridge as recommended by Kelly?
‘Do be mindful though – certain skincare balms, oils and serums may solidify in the fridge and therefore are better off stored at room temperature,’ warns Dr Raj Arora, GP and Aesthetic doctor, and director of The Facebible Clinic. Avoid refrigerating oil-based products, actives such as acids, retinols or benzoyl peroxide, SPFs and foundations.
