15 Best Skincare Fridges For Preserving Your Products

Did you know that lots of skincare and makeup products go bad over time? Many natural products don’t use preservatives and aren't designed to be left at room temperature. (Trust me, I've a melted Lush cleansing bar as proof.)

Any products with ingredients like vitamin C, retinol, and botanicals are highly susceptible to degradation. Luckily, there's a solution.

For preserved items, refrigeration keeps their quality for longer. And a growing trend is using a skincare fridge.

But what is a skincare fridge? It isn't like a regular fridge in your kitchen, right?

According to dermatologist and Visha Skincare founder, Purvisha Patel, MD, “Cooling the skincare products helps inhibit bacterial and fungal growth once the product has been contaminated with fingers... Once products get exposed to air, they also get oxidized. Refrigeration slows down the oxidation process and keeps the products from becoming inactive.”

Plus, applying chilled products helps soothe inflamed skin and eases redness.

If you feel weird about your serums and face masks sharing shelf space with yogurt and salsas, it might be time to invest in a skincare fridge.

Storing your skincare away from food will prevent them from absorbing any unwanted odors. I don’t know about you, but I don’t usually go for face masks that smell of onions!

What are the best skincare fridges?

First, you’re going to want to go for something cute to avoid frat room vibes. Second, choose a mini fridge so there isn't wasted space. 

These mini fridges will keep your skincare preserved and make for stylish decor options!
