Should You Refrigerate Your Skincare Products?
Which Skincare Products Should Be Refrigerated?
Have you ever applied an eye cream after chilling it for hours in the fridge? Then you must know exactly how amazing it feels, right? But do you know that frozen skincare products can also increase their lifespan and effectiveness apart from just feeling good? Yes, your daily eye cream will do wonders on those undereye swelling or wrinkles if you chill it in the refrigerator! Do you ask what other skincare products you can refrigerate? Jump into the article, then!
Freezing skincare products like a balm will help you to keep it preserved. However, the higher temperatures in the summer months usually melt these balms. Even if you keep these balms at room temperature, they might melt. So it is best to refrigerate this skincare product if you want to preserve its nutrients. If you are using a natural skincare product, then those should be put in a refrigerator sooner because these organic products are very tricky to keep hydrated.
As mentioned before, applying cool eye cream to your eyes will give a chilling effect in no time. It will cool down the blood vessels even faster and increase the blood pressure in the application area. However, this cooler temperature will not restrict blood flow under your eyes and will indeed reduce stubborn puffiness.
Another skincare product to refrigerate is a serum. These serums will effectively enhance your skin’s blood circulation and awaken its sensitivity better after refrigeration. Chilled serums also help in soothing your dry skin and if your skin is burned from long sun exposures.
If you are chilling your face toner or face mist, then you are doing precisely fine. These toners are known to work like magic on your skin when you cool it. Such chilled toners and mists will be very effective in reducing puffiness in your face and calming your skin. Also, if your face is reddened from being out in the sun, then also chilled toners are very effective!
Aloe Vera Gel
Are you using aloe vera gel to nourish your dry or sunburnt skin? Put this gel in the refrigerator after use, and you can keep it fresh for longer. For example, if you are freshly using the aloe gel after extracting it, you can refrigerate and use it for up to 10 days! On the other hand, the pure aloe gel will stay fresh for even longer if you keep it stored in a freezer. Do you know that this cool effect is incredibly beneficial for your dry skin?
Put all these skincare essentials in the refrigerator and see the wonders they do to your skin!
