Frequently Asked Questions

best skincare fridges 2022

What are the benefits of refrigerating skincare products?

faq line break
.

“If you store your products in the bathroom, they are susceptible to damage from shower steam,” explains celebrity master esthetician Sarah Akram, owner of Sarah Akram Skincare in Alexandria, Virginia. The idea is that some products can last longer when kept in the fridge, much like your food.

There’s also the added benefit of some products feeling better when they’re kept cold. “Applying chilled products helps with puffiness and swelling, soothes inflammation, and provides a firming effect on the skin,” adds Akram.

What skincare products should (or shouldn’t) be refrigerated?

faq line break
.

“Depending on product formulation and how it is packaged, most toners, mists, serums, eye creams, and face masks (including sheet masks) are the most suitable products to be kept in a skincare fridge,” says Akram. Some products shouldn’t be stored in the fridge, however, as to not alter the texture. “Keep in mind most cream-based products with more dense formulations including serums, moisturizers and masks should not be chilled. This makes it more difficult to apply the product onto the skin. Oil-based products are also not suitable for the fridge as they can also harden,” says the esthetician.
