The skin is the largest organ of the body. Not only that, it is what people will see. Because of this, it is important that it is taken care of.
There are various ways to take care of the skin and living and eating healthy is one of those. And because of this matter, many beauty companies release different kinds of skincare products. Yes, there are a lot of them in different uses and purposes. Add to that to the type of your skin, because you might need more or less.
And because of these products, it might need its own place in your home. But how will you store them properly?
1. Away from the sun
The first thing to keep in mind is to have it away from sunlight. The reason for this is that it will affect the chemicals from the product. Because of that, it will be no use shortly. This also includes sunlight coming from the window, so you will have to store them in cabinets or drawers as much as possible. You could also have them at your dresser or table as long as sunlight does not hit it.
2. Know which should be in room temperature
Mostly, the instruction that you will see on packages is to store them in a dry and cool place, but it is not always the matter. There are products that needed to be stored at room temperature. Most of those products are oil-based and if they are stored in a cool place, there is a big chance that it will solidify and will get useless even if it melts.
3. Watch out which should be refrigerated
Then there are those that needed to be kept in the refrigerator. That is because they are very sensitive to the heat or even just the light. These are mostly products that contain Vitamin C and retinoid. Products that are organic or natural will be last longer if they are to be kept in the refrigerator. They will also be more effective that way. Other products that will be helped when stored are lipsticks that are melted. They will be solidified again. Because of this matter, you will need to have space in your refrigerator. Be sure that they are also sealed properly, so it will not have an effect on your food. You can have them sealed in a ziplock bag or any other plastic then give them their own corner.
4. Not in the bathroom
The bathroom might be the first thing that comes to mind when storing skincare products. Aside from it can be easily found, you can also have easy access when needed. But it is highly discouraged for you to do this. The first reason is that the bathroom’s temperature is unpredictable. It could easily increase once you take a hot shower, so it will affect your products. Not only that, the bathroom is full of bacteria, and they easily multiply with the condition. Another thing is that a bathroom is hardly a dry place and having them kept there is a must because water is what usually causes a mold.
