Beauty Fridge Education 101

While the new hottest trend of mini fridges for beauty products is gaining popularity by the minute, these fridges aren't the best for cosmetics. For example, you probably wouldn't love the consistency of your mascara or foundation after it has been chilled. However, beauty fridges can be an amazing investment for your skincare lineup.

Although most skincare products don't need refrigeration (unless specified on the packaging), storing them in cool temperatures could provide extra benefits. One plus, especially on those products that may have broken the bank (oops!), is that cool temperatures can extend the shelf-life of some skincare. Especially if vegan, clean or natural products are your thing since they don't include those added preservatives.

A beauty fridge may be especially useful for any product with cooling, soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. These types of products will not only feel better when chilled, but there's also science behind it. Cold temperatures cause blood vessels to constrict, which can be a great help if you're looking to brighten, reduce redness and de-puff. It's best to avoid refrigerating oil-based products, which can change texture.

It doesn't stop at products, beauties! Don't forget to store any skincare tools to get an extra soothing sensation and those same amazing benefits.
