Move over, #shelfies! Skincare fridges are the newest cosmetic craze to take Instagram by storm.
You’re probably asking yourself—what even is a skincare fridge? If you’re a skincare aficionado, you already know this, but keeping your products cool has great benefits. The downside? Keeping them in your regular fridge is just a huge hassle.
Hence, the birth of the skincare fridge! Here are 4 reasons why you definitely need one!
It keeps your skincare products fresh for longer

If you Google “skincare fridge,” you’ll stumble across photos of fridge after fridge filled with Drunk Elephant products—and that’s for practical reasons. Their products are expensive, so placing them in the fridge keeps them usable for longer.
Finicky ingredients like Vitamin C also benefits from cooler, dark environments, making skincare fridges the perfect place to keep their shelf life intact.
Consider placing products with benzoyl peroxide and retinol in there, too!
The cooling effect makes products work better

If you’ve ever popped on a cold face mask at the end of a long day, you know what we’re talking about.
For the same reason people put ice on their face to reduce inflammation, placing products with cooling properties inside a fridge heightens their effectiveness. Items like eye creams also work better because the cold helps “de-puff” tired under eye bags, while cooling moisturizers make them more soothing.
You can also leave tools like jade rollers and gua shas in the fridge to make them even colder during use!
It keeps your products organized

Whether you like to keep it simple or have a 10-step Korean skincare routine, organizing your products with rhyme or reason is important! Having a dedicated space for everything not only keeps everything spick and span, it also helps cut down precious time.
But if you don’t care about all that, just look at how nice it looks!
