Hey FaceTory Fam! 💝
We’re so pumped for our skincare fridge! Are you? Well, in the spirit of excitement, get ready for some Ice Ice Baby blog posts dedicated to utilizing your skincare fridge! Wait.... a skincare fridge 😯? Why yes, yes indeed 😌. Extra much? Absolutely not! (kinda but whatevs 💁♀️).
Today, we wanted to talk about what products you can put inside of it. I mean hey, we get it- it can definitely be hard to narrow down what products you can store in there. Even though it would be a dream for everything to have a lovely cooling effect on your skin, the truth of the matter is that not everything will belong in your skincare fridge. Some ingredients are light sensitive, some should be stored somewhere cool and some are completely fine being placed in room temperature location. Ahhh, so not sure what to do? No worries, we’ll walk you through it! Read on to find out what we think are must-haves in your skincare fridge! 🙆♀️
Ahh, soothing, hydrating, cooling, and de-puffing! Your under-eye area needs special treatment after all the stress it goes through (poor babies). Placing your eye cream or eye masks in the fridge will help with de-puffing and is a great way to wake up your tired eyes! Consider the formula/consistency before you place them inside though! If your eye cream is a thick cream, we recommend not placing it in the fridge. If your eye cream has active ingredients or is more of a lighter consistency (like a serum) then pop that product in the fridge! Especially if it has those cooling applicators! Rise and shine, beauties! ☀️
Okay honestly, how can we not put sheet masks in the fridge!? We highly recommend this! The cooling sensation adds to the experience of sheet masking, plus you’ll feel like you’re in a spa! It’s a great way to relax after a long day. Also, if you have any remaining essence leftover just seal it and store it back in the fridge to use the next day. 🤗
Mists will help bring hydration to your skin and adds a beautiful healthy glow to your complexion. Place this in the fridge for a nice cooling effect when you spray this product on your face. Your mists will feel extra luxurious during a hot sunny day or right before a workout! Just spritz and glow! 💦
Jade rollers, gua sha, a spoon! Whatever facial massage or de-puffing tools you have, put those babies in your skincare fridge for sure! Honestly, you won’t regret it. These will help with de-puffing and promote circulation. And we’re pretty sure you’re going to find your hand gravitating towards your tools more often when they’re cold and right next to you! Trust us, they just feel so nice!💆♀️
Not all moisturizers are meant to be placed in the fridge, most moisturizers are A-OK in room temperature places, in fact, some might even separate if you place it somewhere too cold. Gel moisturizers, on the other hand, are great in the fridge and can have a wonderful cooling effect when you massage and press the product into your skin. The cooling sensation will really make you feel like it’s locking in every bit of moisture! 😍
Be careful with ingredients with vitamin C, retinoids, aloe vera, and floral water. These ingredients are very sensitive and have to be stored correctly. Placing them in the fridge will help them last longer! 😊
Drink of your choice!
Hey… It’s a fridge right?! Pop in a bottle or can of your favorite drink (where’s my Yakult)! Maybe even roll it on your face for similar depuffing benefits! 😉 Totally kidding, but really though, who doesn’t do this during summer?!😅
Overall, as extra as it may seem, having a skincare fridge will change your skincare game! 🙌 And for beauty/skincare junkies like us, we’re all for it 😍. Keep in mind that products can be super complex and formulations differ so whatever you decide to put in your fridge just be sure to check up on them often enough to make sure the product isn’t separating. Thanks for reading and as always, just keep glowing!✨
