There are plenty of ways to stay cool in the summer: go for a swim, take a cold shower, blast the AC, etc.  But did you know that some of your beauty products should be kept cold as well? Whether it’s to preserve their active ingredients, make their applications more refreshing or simply to keep them from melting, we recommend you take note of the products you should actually be storing next to your fruits and veggies.

MASKS

Not only will storing masks in the fridge preserve their freshness, it will also make each application soothing and refreshing for your skin.

RETINOLS & VITAMIN C

EYE CREAMS

The guidelines for eye creams are similar to those for your face masks: keeping them in a cold fridge will keep them potent. But the added benefit of a cold eye cream is its ability to reduce puffiness, making it perfect for those mornings when you could have used an extra hour (or five) of sleep.

LIP & EYE LINERS

For a fresher line, a chilled pencil works best. Even half an hour in your fridge will yield sharper, more precise mark. We make no promises about your ability to produce even winged eyes or Kylie Jenner lips, though; refrigerators aren’t magic.

PERFUMES

Storing your favorite scents in the fridge will prevent their intricate ingredients from separating. Perfumes are pricy, so prolong their lifespan by keeping them cold.

NAIL POLISH

You know how your nail polish bottles always say “keep away from heat”? Well, not only should they be kept away from heat, they should actually be actively kept cool.  To avoid gloopy, curdled polishes, store them right next to the milk carton.
