Keeping beauty products in the fridge isn't just a trick to cool down in summertime-it'll actually help your products last longer, year-round! From perfume to moisturizer, keeping products cool can slow chemical reactions and ultimately end up extending the life of your beauty products.

Humidity from your bathroom and shower can end up shortening the life of products, but keeping them cool slows down chemical processes such as oxidation, so you'll end up saving money and making less frequent trips to the drugstore or beauty counter.

The Do's and Don't of Getting Makeup to Last Longer

DO keep them in the fridge. Eye cream, moisturizer and perfume all work well when kept at a cooler temperature.

DO tighten the lids on all beauty products. This will keep them fresh and lasting longer.

DO store eye cream in the fridge-not only will it last longer, but the cooling effects will reduce puffy eyes-added bonus!

DO store any product with Vitamin C in the fridge. It will keep the vitamins from breaking down in the serums.

DON'T keep them in open containers. You don't want your makeup to smell like your food!

DON'T let products freeze. It will ruin them.

DON'T forget to use your products. Some people even go as far as to purchase a cosmetic refrigerator that you store in your bathroom to keep products handy. Yes, that actually does exist!
