For skincare fridge users, most of them will claim that the cooling process in skincare can help maintain the quality of ingredients. In particular, ingredients that are unstable or prone to damage in hot conditions such as vitamin C. Therefore, the mini refrigerator is designed to store skincare.

In addition to its usefulness, the interesting thing about this skincare fridge is its unique design and very small size. “This mini refrigerator is cute, but that doesn’t mean we need it,” says Dr. Piliang.

It is not so necessary

Some of you may have tried facial icing or applying cold aloe vera on sunburned skin. This method is indeed so fun, because cold products that stick to the surface of the face feel refreshing, especially when the skin is irritated or sunburned.

“If our skin is irritated, masks and aloe vera that come from the refrigerator can help relieve sunburned skin,” he continued.

However, beyond that, the benefits of cooling skincare are considered not too significant.

The reason is, most skincare products sold on the market have gone through a testing process to ensure that the product works well and can withstand various environmental temperature conditions.

Dr. Piliang further said that the cooling process will not change the ingredients of the product.

“It doesn’t make it more or less effective. So, in essence it’s just about the feeling when applying it on our skin, “he continued.*

Rules for storing skincare

Before using the refrigerator to store a number of skincare products, there are several things that need to be considered.

Usually, the temperature of the food refrigerator is in the range of 1.66 to 3.33 degrees Celsius, while the skincare fridge is recommended to be set to 4.44 to 15.55 degrees Celsius.

This difference in temperature usage is what makes skincare fridge important to use.

Storing skin care products in temperatures that are too low can cause the product to freeze slightly making it difficult to use.

In addition, it also makes us have to wait for the temperature to return to normal when it will be used and skincare can be really absorbed properly.

However, if you prefer cold skincare, then a skincare fridge is a better choice than a refrigerator for storing food.

Skincare fridge can also be a practical way to keep everything in one place and make it easy every time we want to apply skincare.

Well, in other words the use of skincare fridge depends on the needs of each individual, because it does not fully provide effective benefits for skincare.

Benefits of Skincare fridge

  • Extending the shelf life of the product due to cold temperatures can make the product less perishable.
  • The cold temperature of the beauty fridge keeps skin care products from bacteria and germs so that the products become more hygienic to use.
  • Skin care products stored in the beauty fridge will give a more refreshing sensation when applied, give a calming effect, improve circulation and reduce inflammation and redness on the skin.
  • Storing skin care products in the beauty fridge makes the room tidier and the collection of skin care products more beautiful to look at.

1. Size to Suit Your Needs

The first thing that should be your criteria in choosing a beauty fridge is its size. You can choose the size of the beauty fridge based on its capacity needs. The larger the capacity of the beauty fridge you need, the larger the size.

Generally, this beauty fridge or skincare refrigerator is available in sizes of 5 to 15 liters. If you do not have a large collection of products that will be stored in a beauty fridge, choose a 5-liter size. This size is suitable if you are only going to store face masks, acne medicine, aloe vera gel or a small amount of vitamin C serum products.

Not only that, in choosing the size of the beauty fridge you also need to adjust to the empty space on your dressing table. Do not let you choose the wrong size that is too large to be confused about where to put the beauty fridge you buy. Oh yes, usually the bigger the size, the more expensive the price. So, don’t forget to adjust it to your budget too,

2. Beauty Fridge Design

There are many varieties of beauty fridge designs sold on the market. You can choose the design and color of the refrigerator by adjusting it according to the theme of your room. You also need to pay attention to the handle model to open the beauty fridge. This will greatly affect your ease in opening and closing the refrigerator door.

3. Power Consumption

This is an important criterion in choosing a beauty fridge because it will have a long-term effect on the electricity bills that you will pay while using this tool. Generally, mini-sized refrigerators on the market use power ranging from 100 to 200 kwh.
