Here’s why refrigeration is beneficial for your daily routine. First, it feels so. much. better.
Applying chilled products to the skin, especially when pain or irritation is involved, adds that extra dash of soothing. Aside from the instant relief and invigoration, colder skincare is known for boosting circulation, minimizing puffiness, and tightening pores.
Refrigeration also helps extend the life of your beauty products, slowing down skincare oxidation. Every time you open a product, air exposure tends to alter ingredients and diminishes potency. Luckily, your refrigerator can help combat this to increase shelf life.
