This is what those who know the most about beauty are wearing right now. Read on to find out more.
"Creams are not worth spending money on because they don't work." Every time a cosmetic sceptic blurts out this phrase, a beauty editor cries. Creams and other cosmetics do not work miracles (obviously) but they do help us to improve the appearance and quality of our skin a lot and we have verified it firsthand. What happens then? Why is there so much negativity?
The answer is simple but perhaps not so easy for some to assume and is that:
1) many times, we use cosmetics that do not suit our skin type
2) we do not identify the real needs of our skin
3) we poorly preserve our cosmetics.
However, it is not only how long you keep your creams but where you keep them.
In a dark place:
Keeping the product in a dark place or away from any source of direct light ensures that the components of the cosmetic in question are not altered. Keep in mind that some of the ingredients in our creams, such as vitamin C, are photosensitive and spoil in light.
Is it true that cosmetics work better when cold? There are many products with an anti-inflammatory effect (such as a good variety of creams and gels for the eye contour and bags) that already come with the recommendation "keep in the fridge," since cold is great if what you want is to reduce inflammation.
The cold increases the shelf life of our creams and serums since it delays the degradation of the active ingredients and maintains its unalterable texture. This is not all since the best thing is that the cold brings extra care to our skin.
