More and more beauty trends pop up over the years. From using crystals and jade rollers on your face to fawning over natural makeup, they show no signs of slowing down.
Enter the beauty fridge. It’s something that garnered beauty junkies’ attention a few years ago and it seems like this trend is only getting started.
If you’re thinking about getting one, here’s three ways a beauty fridge can prove to be more useful than you think:
1. Forces you to organize your makeup
Admit it. There are days when you just leave your moisturizer on the bed and your eyebrow pencils scattered along with your coloring pencils on your study table. While everyone’s looking at just the cooling benefits, a beauty fridge can actually help you finally organize the eyesore that is your vanity table.
Now you won’t have to spend time trying to find the products that completes your 10-step Korean skincare routine. They’ll all be neatly tucked away in a mini compartment in front of your vanity mirror when you need them.
2. Helps with shelf life
Like food, some of your beauty products also contain preservatives so they’ll still be functional months down the road.
While this isn’t exactly applicable for every product, the ones that contain antioxidants, retinol, vitamin C, and benzoyl peroxide are best refrigerated and cooled so you can still use them for a few more months.
In other words, your skincare products will benefit the most when kept inside your beauty fridge. Your makeup, on the other hand, will most probably survive without it.
3. Extra calming and cooling effect
When you live in a tropical country, we wouldn’t blame you if you’re constantly looking for something to counter the heat.
Refrigerating your eye cream can reduce puffiness while a cool acne cream can help with redness and inflammation.
More than that, waking up and getting ready is now less of a hassle when you know you can have a refreshing and cool toner waiting for you on your vanity. It definitely takes the skincare game to the next level.
If you think about it, there is some logic to this new obsession. You’ve invested in beauty essentials that may have cost a day’s worth of salary. You’d only want what’s best for them, right?
