Be careful if you are one of those who put your head in the fridge at this time of year.
Because as much as we like to apply cool beauty products with the heat, not all of them feel good in extreme cold.
So, fridge yes or fridge no? Well, as the great Pau Donés sang, IT DEPENDS.
What does it depend on? Of different factors that today we are going to explain to you so that you become an expert in the matter.
Important note: Even in those cases in which the cold favors the properties of our cosmetics, it is not necessary to spend money on one of those cosmetic coolers (unless you want to indulge yourself). The refrigerator in your kitchen does exactly the same function.
That being said, generally conventional cosmetics are NOT prepared for the cold.
The best thing you can do is keep your products in a cool place, in the shade, away from heating or air conditioning and at a temperature between 18 and 25 degrees.
As with all rules, there are exceptions. Cocoa and lip balms, eye contour, toners, body and anti-cellulite creams are perfectly compatible with the shelf of eggs and carrots.
Let's do our thing.
What about natural cosmetics and low temperatures? What Nasei products can you put in the fridge and which ones can't?
Well here things change. Since we do not use preservatives, most of the natural ingredients appreciate being cool in the fridge to prevent them from spoiling.
But ONLY those that contain an aqueous part in their composition.
What are the products that YES you can store in the fridge? In our case:
- The geranium, lavender and rose moisturizing cream
- The floral tonic of orange blossom and rockrose
- Sweet almond and marjoram cleansing milk
- All our hydrosols
The coolness suits these products wonderfully. And not only, because the decongesting effect does a lot of good for your skin by improving its blood circulation, calming swelling and causing an immediate well-being effect.
Special mention for sensitive or sunburned skin, they will especially appreciate it.
Do you know those days in August when you come home after a day at the beach with red and burning skin? Well, holy hand a little bit of tonic fresh from the fridge.
On the opposite side, on the team of fridge NO, we have products with oil.
In Nasei these are:
- The Botanical Beauty Oil of Neroli and Jasmine
- The nourishing sweet almond and apricot oil
- Grapefruit and cedar detox oil,
- All serums
- The olive and eucalyptus cleansing balm
- The eye contour and nourishing tangerine and geranium balm
Do you keep olive oil in the fridge? Well there you have the answer.
When coming into contact with the cold, the oils could crystallize and lose their properties.
Another product that you should never keep cold is makeup bases, because you run the risk of them being altered by humidity.
Here is what YES or YES you should do if you put your beauty products in the fridge: leave it there until finished.
If you don't, you'll be breaking the cold chain and the temperature fluctuations will affect the formula, which could prevent your skin from receiving its benefits. Record it on fire.
