We all know that the refrigerator is a great place to store produce, milk, and eggs. But did you also know that it's an ideal spot for skincare too? I'm talking about your serums, moisturizers, creams, masks and more! Here are 5 reasons why you should be keeping your skincare cool all year long.
1. Keep your skincare products fresh and ready to use.
A big question surrounding the use of a skincare fridge is “What skincare should be refrigerated?” The short answer to that is If the product contains any active ingredients like retinol, vitamin C, alpha hydroxy acids, prescription drugs - these should be kept cool until after they're used to help keep the active ingredients as fresh as possible.
2. Save money by stocking up on a variety of skincare products in bulk.
It's no secret that skincare products are expensive, especially when you are committed to using high quality ingredients. Many people find themselves shelling out a lot of money for products they don't end up finishing before the products expire. Stocking up on skincare products is a great way to save money and ensure you never run out of your favorite lotion or face wash. Plus, buying in bulk means you can buy the more expensive skin care products without breaking the bank. Especially when you know they’ll be kept fresh in your fridge.
3. Prevent bacteria from growing on your skin care products that can cause acne or breakouts
Keeping skincare in the bathroom next to your shower? Unfortunately, the moisture from your steamy shower can get trapped in your products and encourage the growth of bacteria. Keeping the products in their own separate area means that they’re safely preserved and keeping contaminant free.
4. Protect your skin-vestment - if you have an expensive product, it'll stay safe from being used incorrectly by others
Grabby significant other? Nosy roommates that won’t keep their paws off of your high end products? Keep your products out of their sight and give yourself peace of mind by keeping your products tucked safely away in their own personal fridge.
5. Stay organized with easy access to all of your items in one place!
The final step in a great skincare routine is storing your products. It can be tempting to just throw everything into a drawer or keep them on the counter, but it's important that you protect both your investment by keeping them organized. That way you’ll know exactly where everything is, speeding up your routine.
Good skincare can be expensive, so it's important to take care of your investment and keep a variety of products on hand at all times. By keeping some in an easy-to-access place like a refrigerator, you'll always have the right product for any situation - from acne treatment to SPF protection. Long story short (or long), if there's one thing that will make your life easier when it comes to caring for your skin, it’s keeping your products organized and cool in their own fridge.
