Skincare fridges have become all the rage recently, and it’s not just because they are cute. Keeping certain skincare products in the fridge can actually help keep them better for longer and some of them just feel amazing when cooled. Here’s what you should be putting in your skincare fridge (or just your normal fridge if you’ve got the room).
The skincare items you should have in your fridge:
If you’ve got cream or gel under eye cream, pop that baby in the fridge. The cooling effect will help to depuff eyes and it will feel relaxing when you put it on.

There’s nothing quite like pulling a sheet mask out of the fridge and relaxing after a long day. The cooling combined with the properties of the sheet mask can help reduce redness and calm your skin.

The same thing goes for eye masks as sheet masks, when combined with the properties of the sheet mask, the eye mask will feel even better when cooled, and it can help de-puff and reduce under-eye bags.

Cooled facial mists are perfect for hot days or when your face needs some cooling down. Try keeping a facial mist in the fridge for whenever you need a quick refresh.

If you have facial tools like gua sha or a jade roller try keeping them in your skincare fridge. The cool air in the fridge will keep the stones cool which will give you a cooling effect on your face when you use it.
Most products are just fine at room temperature and don’t need to be in the fridge, but there are some that may benefit from being refrigerated due to their ingredients. Things like vitamin C, aloe, floral-infused mists, and anything with retinoids might last longer if they are kept cool.
The skincare items you should NOT have in your fridge:
There are a few products that shouldn’t be put into your skincare fridge because the cold can cause them to separate or harden. Things you shouldn’t put in your skincare fridge include:
- Clay masks
- Most facial oils
