We are living in the self-care era where jade rollers, gold face masks, and CBD serums are all the rage. Recently technology and beauty merged, gifting us with 2019’s biggest skincare trend, beauty fridges. Dainty, brightly colored mini fridges have become the most extra skincare trend yet, with tons of bloggers and beauty addicts jumping on board. Turns out this luxurious item delivers some serious benefits. So, why do you need one and where do you find one?
What Exactly is a Beauty Fridge?
These tiny fridges are compact enough to fit on your bathroom vanity but big enough to house your daily routine. You can store jade rollers, eye creams, sheet masks, and serums – whatever you’d like. You’re probably asking yourself ‘why?’ Turns out some beauty products are best served cold – especially your favorite organic products. Organic skincare is usually formulated without preservatives, and keeping them in the fridge could help extend their longevity. Everyone’s favorite Fresh Facemasks from Lush need to be kept cold in order to preserve the benefits of their natural ingredients. You might be surprised to learn that sunscreens should be stored in a cold area to ensure the SPF’s quality. Most of us keep the bulk of our beauty products in our bathrooms but the heat and humidity of the shower can actually cause bacteria to grow. Not to mention, keeping your products in the fridge will make your routine feel even more refreshing. Everyone knows a cold compress is great for inflammation, that’s why our grandmothers kept spoons in the freezer.
