The hot trend this year is all about beauty fridges, Kylie Jenner’s beauty Fridge just launched, other celebrities, Instagram and tik tok influencers are joining forces to promote the benefits of using a beauty fridge. The real question is why should you use a beauty fridge? What benefits does it provide? Does it really help reduce facial puffiness and improve the natural glow of your skin? We want to share with you our thoughts and research showing whether the benefits of a makeup fridge are real or if it’s all just hype.
Shelf Life of Natural Beauty Products
Many skincare products and cosmetics are now being made with all natural products and no preservatives. Natural cosmetics contain vitamin C, Retinol, benzol peroxide and other natural ingredients that have a relatively short shelf life, one way to extend the life of those products and get more out of them is to keep the in a cool dark place such as a fridge. These products don’t like heat, the cosmetics breakdown over time due to heat and humidity. When products break down they start spoiling and are no longer safe to use on your skin.
Cold Temperatures reduce facial puffiness
One thing many people struggle with is facial bloat in the mornings. Face masks, eye masks, setting spray and facial creams really do work wonders for facial bloat and puffiness when applied cold. The cold temperature helps firm up your skin and closes pores after you wash and exfoliate your skin. The cold tingling sensation of a chilled face mask really makes your skin glow and feel amazing. Need we say more? I don’t think so.
Store your nail polish in a beauty fridge for best results
Nail polish is tricky, many nail polish formulations have alcohol or acetone to keep the nail polish liquid and easy to apply. When nail polish is stored at room temperature the alcohol and acetone escapes overtime causing the polish to be stringy and hard to apply. Keeping your nail polish nice and cool improves the consistency and helps allow it to be applied more uniformly. This is especially critical for gel nail polishes that require special care during storage and application.
Slow down or eliminate bacterial growth
Over time as you use your cosmetics, little flakes of dead skin end up in the container that become bacteria feeding grounds. Bacteria thrives in natural skin care products that have natural ingredients and are stored at room temperature. Bacteria doubles its growth rate every 24hrs in an optimal environment. What is not optimal for bacterial growth is cold temperatures, so storing skin care products in a beauty fridge really reduces any bacterial growth in the cosmetics containers. The bacteria is invisible to the naked eye so you can’t see it, but when you use your skin care products that have bacterial growth in them you have a much higher chance of getting skin breakouts and acne. No one wants to coat their skin and face with bacteria, a beauty fridge significantly reduces bacterial growth and helps keep your skin clean and healthy.
BONUS – Use the heat function for facials
Some beauty fridges have a switch to a heat setting, this might be confusing at first why would you want your fridge to heat up? Well this functionality is great for wax strips, facial oils, small facial towels, essential oils and so much more. The small facial towels are essential for spa nights where you need a little me time. You can take damp towels and place them in your beauty fridge and set it to the heat setting. After a short period of time on the heat setting your damp towels become warm towels that you can use on your face to open up skin pores and make exfoliating way better. We love a nice warm towel on the face to relax and give your skin the spa treatment it has been begging for.
