What is a beauty fridge, anyway?
Mini fridges are no longer just a home for midnight snacks and cold drinks. The mini fridge has slowly been taken over as the must-have accessory for skin care products.
Skincare fridges or beauty fridges are enjoying a moment in the spotlight thanks to millions of TikTok and Instagram influencers touting the benefits of keeping their skin care products chilled.
Is there a benefit to chilling beauty products?
The short answer is yes! Dermatologists and cosmetologists say that skincare and other beauty products benefit from being chilled for a number of reasons.
1. Certain ingredients are more stable when kept cold
A cool, temperature-controlled environment helps keep certain ingredients, like retinol, stable. Cooling also helps to improve the effectiveness of certain ingredients and help maintain their potency. It is always important to check the instructions on your beauty products first, since some active ingredients are sensitive to cold.
If the packaging suggests you store it in a cool, dark place, a skin care fridge is a great way to do that. An added benefit of a cosmetics fridge is that organizing some products inside will free up space on your vanity or counter for the items that are better kept at room temperature.
2. Cold storage extends the shelf-life of natural products
Cool storage allows you to keep natural products without preservatives potent and spoilage-free for longer. Cold temperatures help to slow down the breakdown of certain ingredients, allowing them to remain active for longer periods of time.
As well, without the addition of artificial preservatives, natural products can also be prone to spoiling. Refrigerating these products can prevent or slow the growth of bacteria that can cause them to spoil prematurely, extending their shelf-life so you can enjoy them for longer.
3. Applying cooled products can reduce inflammation
Keeping skin care products chilled also provides a number of benefits for the health and appearance of your skin. Using cool skin care products can help to reduce puffiness and inflammation. Chilled products, when placed on the skin, can help to constrict blood vessels and reduce swelling. This can be especially beneficial for people with sensitive skin or conditions like rosacea.
Not to mention the feeling of a chilled lotion on your skin provides a refreshing and soothing sensation! This can be especially beneficial and soothing after a long, stressful day or after exposure to the sun, as it can help calm and cool the skin.
