Should eye cream be kept in the fridge?
YES, storing skincare products such as eye cream in the fridge can be beneficial, especially if you have puffy eyes. ‘Cold temperatures tighten blood vessels, which will reduce the swelling,’ says Joanne Dodds from hairtrade.com.
Puffy eyes tend to be worse during hot weather, so it pays to pick products that deal with the problem, such as Origins No Puffery (£25, origins.co.uk). it has a cooling, roll-on applicator and contains cucumber to help reduce under-eye bags almost immediately.
Sarah Chapman Skinesis Eye Recovery (£44, SpaceNK) also works brilliantly when kept in the fridge. it has a powerful blend of peptides, antioxidants and vitamins that reduce puffiness and help repair and rebuild collagen so the skin is firmer, correcting any sagging.
