How many of you wake up in the morning and open your fridge door to get the milk and mascara out. Confused? What if we told you that you could store your beauty products in the fridge for many benefits? It’s true! You store food in the fridge to keep it fresh and make it last longer, right? The same works for cosmetics as well.
Keeping certain cosmetics in the fridge extends their shelf life and prevents them from going bad. This is because you are storing them at a constant temperature and away from the fluctuations in the humidity and mercury levels. One more advantage is that the cooling sensation you get when you apply the products straight out of the fridge. Sounds good so far? Read on for some products that are eligible for prime property inside your fridge.
Exposure to sun is not good for your skin and the same goes for your lipstick as well. You may carry your regular go-to lippy every day in your bag for regular touch-ups, but the ‘special occasion’ colours and the ones you use rarely can be stored in the fridge. Daily exposure to the changing temperatures can cause the product to break down and eventually change colour.
Eye creams and roll-on creams with the metal nozzles work by soothing the skin under the eyes and reducing the puffiness. Storing the eye products in the fridge will increase their potency and efficacy and the coolness will give your eyes a jolt of freshness.
Storing toner in the fridge will give you a super-charged, refreshing jolt when you apply it on your skin. The coolness will also help constrict the pores and make them appear smaller which helps in the even application of simple makeup.
Store your favourite fragrances in the fridge. Exposure to sunlight breaks down the components of the fragrance leading to the molecules evaporating. Store your perfumes away from heat and light and make them retain their strength longer.
They are the latest rage in the skin care world and for good reason. Put your sheet mask in the fridge an hour before you apply it on your face. The cooling sensation is a treat to tired skin and it will also help de-puff your skin. This is the ultimate cure for hungover, dehydrated skin.
Let’s face it. Serums and products with Vitamin C are as hardworking as they are expensive. They also tend to disintegrate when exposed to heat and light. So, store your Vitamin C-infused products in the fridge to preserve their power.
