It goes without saying that you need to avoid exposing your skin care to direct sunlight or extreme hot or cold. But, did you know that refrigerating your skin care will keep it fresh longer?
Our cells respond better to ingredients that are enzymatically alive, and refrigerating products helps to keep them living and fresh longer. As an added bonus, cooler products will give your anti-aging products more of a lifting effect, and will help acne products penetrate your skin deeper and decrease skin redness. Refrigeration also speeds up the time it takes products to penetrate the skin: a room-temperature product can take one to two hours to work versus only 10 minutes when it’s been in the fridge.
I’m aware that it may not be practical or convenient to refrigerate all of your skin care products, and for that reason, I recommend refrigerating more expensive products like serums or firming creams to get more bang for your buck. If you use Vasseur products, I recommend refrigerating ALA, DMAE, Idebenone, Benzoclear and Serums in particular. Another idea: get a cute mini-cooler or fridge to put in your bathroom to stock your skin care.
