Storing products in the refrigerator is a classic trick for enhancing their cooling effect. But now, instead of putting your skincare faves next to your leftover dinner, the new trend is to make use of beauty fridges that are solely dedicated for beauty products! After all, if your regimen is ever-expanding like ours, then you could use the extra space, too!
Once you've decided to get your own beauty fridge (shop here!), the next question is what exactly you should store inside. While you can definitely keep everything in, here's our guide to products that you'd want to use cold:
1. Face mist
Spraying your skin with a chilly face mist will make the misting process 10 times more refreshing. It's like splashing your face with cold water minus the messy puddles!

2. Sheet masks
When used straight out of the fridge, sheet masks can double as a cold compress that will cool your skin down as it loads it up with all that serum. Just make sure not to store it in the freezer so the serum won't turn into ice!
JUMISO Sheet Masks, P99 each, Go Bloom and Glow
3. Vitamin C serum
Most vitamin C serums are prone to oxidization, particularly when they're exposed to sunlight. To keep yours fresh, store the bottle in the darkest corner of your beauty fridge and only take it out when you're using it.

4. Eye cream
Your eye cream has depuffing ingredients of its own, but watch the effect double once you apply it cold. This should help wake up your peepers, too—no coffee needed!

5. Eye Masks
Similar to sheet masks, refrigerating eye masks can freshen up your tired eyes and reduce swelling.

Chill your favorite moisturizer in your beauty fridge. Since it's one of the last steps in your routine, it can give your pores a refreshing pick-me-up before you go on with your day.

7. Face roller
Instead of leaving your jade rollers, gua shas, and ice rollers in your drawers, pop them in the freezer for around an hour before use. The cold temperature will make your face massages more relaxing and stimulating!
