The best beauty fridge is one that is compact yet can hold your skincare routine. If you are on medicated creams by your dermatologist, you should also use it to store your prescription creams.

Store your jade roller, serums, moisturisers to make the best use of your beauty fridge.

Cold Therapy or Cryotherapy for Skin Benefits

Heard of cryotherapy? Yup, there are true benefits for cold skincare!

Firstly, do you want to know how dermatologists generally advise patients? The best kept secret for eczema sufferers is to store their moisturisers in the fridge. The cold activates temperature receptors in the dermis. This distracts the skin from itch sensations. 

Skincare products like facial serums can also be stored in the fridge. The added benefit is that cold is anti-inflammatory. If you have facial redness, applying a cold moisturiser cream will help reduce redness quickly. This is especially so for sufferers of rosacea. Rosacea is a condition whereby blood vessels on the face are overly reactive. 

The Best Moisturiser is Served Cold

The traditional multi-purpose cold cream deserves more attention than it gets. The best beauty fridge transforms a good moisturiser into the perfect skin salve. 

According to Singapore dermatologist Dr Teo, “ A cold cream is traditionally a combination of emulsifiers and emollients.  The skincare ingredients usually contain beeswax and humectants. The cold cream has been touted as an all-in one multi purpose skincare item. The truth is most modern moisturisers utilise the same active ingredients to improve barrier function. Humectants for example minimise transepidermal water loss. 

Multi-CERAM Moisturiser
The Multi-CERAM moisturiser is modelled after the original cold cream formula compounded by the pharmacy of Dr. Teo’s dermatology practice, TWL Specialist Skin & Laser Centre. It contains additional antioxidant anti-inflammatory ingredients which function as “steroid-sparers”. This means it can reduce eczema patient’s reliance on topical steroids over time.

“A little known skincare secret of dermatologists is to actually to refrigerate skincare. This is especially so for moisturisers. Many eczema patients find their itchy skin symptoms relieved by the cold sensation. The science behind this is that the cold sensation activates temperature receptors in the skin. This distracts the itch receptors. Overall, this relieves the itch sensation,” Dr. Teo shares.

Skincare itself is best applied when it is chilled. Refrigeration in general going to extend the shelf life of skincare products. Many find using the kitchen refrigerator inconvenient. This is also because skincare may absorb odours from food.
