We are here to answer your question about mini skincare fridges, which have been trending on social media. Although it makes a great gift, you don’t really need a separate fridge for your beauty products. There is no need to refrigerate your products. Keeping your skincare stash, or at least some, chilled is a good idea.

Why? It’s simple. Marina Peredo MD, a board-certified dermatologist from New York City, says that “any type cream- or gel-based product” can be stored in the refrigerator. Avoid sticking oil-based products in the fridge. She notes that these products can solidify and affect the formula’s potency.

These are five top products that you should keep next to your salad dressing and coffee creamer.

Eye cream

Dr. Peredo believes that eye creams are the best way to keep your eyes cold. She explains that freezing your eye cream can help reduce puffy eyes. You can put almost any formula in the fridge, but eye patches and eye patches are not allowed. If you want to get the best results, look for one with a tip that uses a metal rollerball. Metal conducts cold well so you will get more benefits. The massaging action of the rollerball also helps push out excess fluid which can cause puffiness.

Face Roller

Similar to the eye cream, a chilled roller works better than one at room temperature. This is a great way to quickly remove any excess skin (we love it after a night out). Although Dr. Peredo advises against keeping skincare products in the fridge, this tool is an exception to the rule.

Skin-Soothing Masque

Dr. King says that any skincare product that claims it is soothing, cooling, anti-inflammatory, or anti-inflammatory, will be more effective if stored in a fridge. Gel-based formulas are soothing and can be used to increase the effectiveness. These formulas have a higher water content than cream counterparts. They also feel cooler and more refreshing when kept in the refrigerator. A chilled gel-based soothing mask can be used to soothe and calm an irritated skin after sun exposure, allergic reactions, or any other reason.

Post-Injection Arnica Treatment

Dr. Peredo says that you can chill arnica to reduce post-injection bleeding. Although the herb is intended to combat bruises, it can also be used to reduce swelling. This is why it’s a good option after filler injections, which tend to cause swelling.

Vitamin C Serum

Dr. Peredo explains that vitamin C products can be chilled to help the ingredient remain stable for longer periods of time. This ingredient is known for its antioxidant protection and skin-brightening, collagen-boosting properties. Dr. King concurs, noting that vitamin C products can be kept in the refrigerator to extend their shelf life. She adds that if there is any color, texture or odor change, it should be thrown out.

Another caution: Dr. Peredo has previously warned that serums should be water-based and not oil-based. It is important to use opaque and dark packaging for vitamin C products, regardless of where they are stored. Light can also cause the ingredient to be inactivated.
