Apart from ice creams and lemonade, here’s another thing you need to make space for in your fridge this summer — skincare products. You know how drinking a bottle of cold water in this hot and humid weather instantly cools and calms your body, right? Similarly, applying skincare products after storing them in the fridge can soothe your skin.
Some ingredients in your skincare product can become less effective as the temperature rises, and storing it in the fridge can increase its effectiveness. So, if you are ready to quench your skin’s thirst and make it feel nice and cool this summer, here’s a list of skincare products that you should keep in the fridge.
01. Sheet masks
Sheet masks are the ultimate destressing skincare products out there. Putting a sheet mask on your face and listening to some music or having a glass of wine at the end of the day can relax your skin and mind like no other. Keeping your favourite sheet mask in the fridge can super-charge it, give your skin a burst of freshness, and calm it instantly.
You cannot survive Indian summers without a face mist. The harsh rays of the sun can dehydrate your skin and leave it dying for some hydration. A face mist not only hydrates your skin but keeps your skin looking fresh too. If you wish to make it even more effective, store the face mist in the fridge, and every few hours, you open it, quickly spritz some on your face.

03. Gel moisturiser
Gel moisturiser is a must-have in summer. Its water-based texture absorbs into the skin immediately and gives it a healthy glow. No matter what your skin type, a gel moisturiser with hydrating ingredients will be your BFF this summer. To add a burst of hydration and freshness to your skin, store your gel moisturiser in the fridge. The cooling sensation will really make you feel like it’s locking in every bit of moisture.
04. Eye cream
If applying eye cream is a part of your nighttime skincare routine, then it’s about to get a lot better. You know how calming it is to relax with cucumber slices on your eyelids? Well, your eye cream is gonna do that if you keep it in the fridge this summer. It will depuff tired eyes and make your eye area appear brighter.
05. Skincare tools
Whether you use a jade roller, gua sha or even a spoon, keeping it in the fridge this summer can make it a lot more effective. It will help with de-puffing and promoting circulation. The cooling sensation will not only feel nice, but you will find yourself using them more often. So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead, make some space in that refrigerator.
