Say hello to the latest Instagram trend – the beauty fridge. If you’re wondering what the newest beauty weapon on the block is, it’s a mini refrigerator to store your skincare and beauty products.
But, do you really need to keep your skincare products chilled, or is this just another fad in the world of beauty?
Let's take a look...
What is a beauty fridge?
A beauty fridge is a special type of mini fridge, solely for the purpose of storing your skincare, body care and makeup items. You can keep this type of mini fridge in your bedroom or vanity area, making it easier for you to keep all your beauty items together.
There’s also the bonus that you don’ t need to make a special trip to your regular refrigerator to grab your favourite beauty products.
Beauty tools like gua sha are used for facial massage,making them perfect for fridge storing. The extra coolness will soothe and reduce puffiness.
You can also store sheet masks, eye masks, patches and nail polishes.
Do you need to keep your beauty products cold?
Applying a chilled toner or cream to our face or body in hot months can feel extra refreshing. Some experts also suggest that chilled beauty products, like eye cream or toner, can eliminate puffiness, soothe irritation,or tighten large pores.
If you live in a hot climate, storing your beauty products in a fridge can also prevent them from melting, especially lipsticks or cream makeup.
However, there is no significant evidence to suggest that storing your beauty products in a fridge is a necessary step. Plus, if you wanted to save money, you could easily store your products in your normal fridge.
What beauty products shouldn’t you chill?
Balm and oil products shouldn’t be placed in a fridge as the formulas can separate. Store these in a cool, dry place instead.
A beauty fridge is optional, but if you’re looking for a cute way to store your skincare and makeup, this latest trend may be perfect for you!
