Whether it's to battle the summer swelter or simply to refresh your face any time of year, the best mini fridges for skincare are super convenient for chilling out all of those beauty products that need to be kept in a cool space—which often includes all the essentials in our skincare regime.
It is believed by many skincare experts that refrigerating products like face creams and tools like jade rollers can be more beneficial for the skin as well as preserving products (especially lip balms and lipsticks) from melting during the warmer months of the year. Plus, who doesn't love applying cool products to their skin? That crisp, fresh sensation not only feels great but seems almost as though it's instantly firming, and according to some dermatologists it actually is.
In fact, Dr. Preema, Medical Director of the Dr. Preema London Clinic, told us: "Most skincare products should be stored at room temperature but there are some products that do give extra benefits by storing them in the fridge, such as gel-based moisturizers or masks. When applied to the face, the product will help cool irritated skin, reduce puffiness and redness."
However, there are of course mixed reviews about how effective it really is to refrigerate your products, with some beauty lovers swearing by it whilst others haven't noticed much of a difference. If you're keen on giving it a try, here are some super-cute mini fridges for skincare to store all of your favorite goodies in.
