7 BEAUTY PRODUCTS YOU SHOULD STORE REFRIGERATED

Just like you wouldn’t store your milk on the counter, you shouldn’t store certain beauty products in your bathroom cabinets. There are certain skincare products that need to be placed in the refrigerator and not in your vanity kit.

Why you should consider storing your products in the refrigerator anyways?
A fridge actually allows you to get the most out of your product for the longest period of time, says Dr. Ayesha Faizan from Destination Skin. If you keep some products on your bathroom counter, for example, they may be exposed to the sun, left open or cross contaminated, she further explains. The colder temperature also helps boost the effectiveness of some products.

From eye cream to aloe vera gel, check out some skincare items that you should always refrigerate:
1. ANTI-ACNE PRODUCTS
If your dermatologist gives you a prescription for any anti-acne medicine, like Clindamycin or Tri-luma, check the label to see if it says to store it in the fridge. The formula won’t be as effective if it’s improperly stored.

2. EYE CREAMS
A lot of people wake up with puffy eyes because fluid can pool in the trough of your under-eye area while you sleep, especially if you’ve had a salty dinner. To deflate your under-eye bags more quickly in the morning, store your eye cream or gel in the refrigerator. Cold constricts blood vessels, thereby reducing swelling.

3. TONERS AND FACIAL MISTS
Face mists and toners usually last longer when refrigerated, explains Dr. Ayesha Faizan. They work really well on the skin when applied chilled. Cold face mists and toners calm the skin, depuffs, and reduces redness, she continues.

4. SERUMS
Refrigerated serum helps in soothing the skin. The cold serum is also proved to be more effective in tightening pores. It awakens the senses and boosts circulation.

5. SHEET MASKS
Face or sheet masks hydrate and moisturize your skin and they work the best when stored in cold temperatures. Dr. Ayesha Faizan recommends using a cold facial mask for people who suffer from irritation on the skin or have troubled skin. If you dont want to refrigerate your mask the entire time, you can put them in an hour before applying, she advises.

6. ALOE
Chances are, you’re using aloe because you have a sunburn, or evn dry skin. If you keep it cold, once you apply it to your skin, it won’t be able to sense the terrible burning/ itching/ uncomfortable feeling.

7. NATURAL BEAUTY PRODUCTS
Since products that claim to be organic and natural don’t contain the preservatives, parabens, sulfates, etc., that other products do to make them last longer, you have to keep them in the fridge so they don’t spoil. This not only lengthens their shelf life, it keeps bacteria from blooming, explain Dr. Ayesha Faizan.
