The One Trick That’ll Make Your Beauty Products More Effective

Share

You’ve invested so much time and money figuring out what works for your skin. Now that you’ve got your regimen down, it’s crucial that you take good care of your products, starting with how you store them. While your vanity and your makeup bag are the obvious solution, they can vary in temperature, risking the breakdown and oxidization of ingredients and curtailing the life of your cherished items. Instead, try sticking them in the refrigerator. Hear us out: The cold keeps formulas intact—so they remain potent and last longer—and hinders bacteria growth. We also dig the cooling sensation we get, especially when applying to inflamed or irritated skin. Ahead, eight beauty products that are begging for a chill-out session ASAP.
