Food isn't the only thing that needs to be refrigerated.

According to Cosmopolitan, when it comes to certain beauty products and their life span keeping them in the refrigerator can keep them fresh and help them to last longer. No longer are the days of your refrigerator shelves holding only produce, but you'll be surprised what else can take up some shelve room.
Everything from your nail polish to your sunscreen can and should be placed in your fridge to ensure they remain fresh. Keep scrolling to be amazed by the random beauty items that should be shacking it up with your groceries in your refrigerator, as told by Cosmo.

Beauty Product #1: Lipstick

"The lipstick you're using every day doesn't need to be chilled, but if your favorite shade is being discontinued and you want to stock up, they'll last longer if stored in the fridge. Otherwise, the heat could cause the chemicals to break down and decompose over time, leaving you with a shade that doesn't look like the one you purchased."

Beauty Product #2: Fragrance

"If you keep your fragrance on your dresser and it's exposed to too much light and heat, the chemicals will start to break down and cause your once-amazing-smelling perfume to smell completely different."

Beauty Product #3: Sunscreen

"Post-summer, if you have a partially used or unopened bottle of either cream or spray sunscreen that you'd like to save, pop it in the fridge. A warm environment will lessen the effectiveness of the SPF, meaning it won't protect your skin as well, if at all, the next time you use it."

Beauty Product #4: Nail Polish

"Sunlight and heat can cause the formula to become thick and sometimes alter the color. Keeping your polish in the fridge helps the paint stay thin so it goes on evenly while also preserving its true color."

Beauty Product #5: Anti-Acne Products

"If your dermatologist gives you a prescription for any anti-acne medicine, like Clindamycin or Tri-luma, check the label to see if it says to store it in the fridge. The formula won't be as effective if it's improperly stored."
