Stash Products In Your Fridge
Give these beauty products—and yourself—some relief by keeping them chilled:
• Face creams. A cool moisturizer feels awesome and, if you're flushed, "instantly constricts the dilated blood vessels that cause redness," says Bank. Ones with anti-inflammatory ingredients, like niacinamide (found in CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM SPF 30), also help keep redness from returning.
• Nail polish. "Cold temperatures make lacquers thinner, so they're easier to paint on evenly, and they dry faster," says manicurist Jin Soon Choi. They'll also last longer in the fridge: "Heat activates solvents that cause pigments to separate."
• Perfume. Any temperature over 75 degrees can alter scents in as little as one year. Keep them chilled, and you can get an extra five years out of each bottle.
• After-sun lotions. Cooling sunburned skin is a quick way to bring relief. Keep a gel with aloe (like Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun Lotion) in the fridge, just in case.
