The Science of Skincare Masks and Eye Gels

Using skincare masks and eye gels in the summer offers numerous benefits. These products are formulated to provide deep hydration, reduce puffiness, and enhance the skin's natural glow.

Masks and eye gels help to lock in moisture, preventing the skin from drying out in the hot weather. They also contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides, and antioxidants, which are essential for maintaining healthy, restored, hydrated skin. The cooling effect of these products provides an immediate relief from the heat, making them a refreshing addition to your skincare regimen.

Pro-Tip: Put Rosé, Bubbly, and On Ice in the fridge before use for a cooling boost. This works well in the morning to de-puff your under eyes. Post-sun and after a shower your skin will feel amazing after placing a cool hydrogel mask on your face.

Five Reasons to Put Your Skincare In The Fridge

Placing skincare products in the fridge can offer several benefits, especially during the hot summer months. Here are a few reasons why chilling your skincare can be a game-changer:

1. Soothing and Cooling Effect
One of the main advantages of refrigerating skincare is the refreshing, cooling sensation it provides. When applied to the skin, chilled products can help calm inflammation, reduce puffiness, and provide relief from heat and sunburn. This cooling effect is especially welcome during the summer when our skin is more prone to redness, swelling, and irritation.

2. Depuffing and Contouring
The cooling properties of refrigerated skincare can also help constrict blood vessels and reduce fluid retention, leading to a depuffing and contouring effect. Chilled eye creams, gels, and masks are particularly effective at minimizing under-eye bags and dark circles, leaving you looking more awake and refreshed.

3. Enhancing Product Efficacy
Some skincare ingredients, such as vitamin C and retinol, can be prone to oxidation and degradation when exposed to heat and light. Storing these products in the fridge can helppreserve their potency and extend their shelf life, ensuring you get the most out of their active ingredients.

4. Refreshing Sensorial Experience
Let's be honest, there's something incredibly indulgent about applying a chilled, refreshing product to your face, especially on a hot summer day. It's a small luxury that can elevate your skincare routine into a truly revitalizing and rejuvenating experience.

5. Minimizing Bacteria Growth
Refrigeration can also help slow down the growth of bacteria in certain skincare products, such as natural or preservative-free formulas. This can help extend their shelf life and prevent the products from spoiling prematurely.

So, whether you're battling summer's heat, seeking relief from puffiness and inflammation, or simply craving a refreshing sensorial experience, incorporating chilled skincare products into your routine can be a game-changer for achieving a dewy, radiant complexion all season long.

Why does cooling skincare help in the heat?

Just like you crank up the AC when the heat becomes unbearable, your skin needs its own cooling system to beat the summer swelter. Patchology's cooling eye gels and masks act as a portable air conditioning unit for your face, providing instant relief and rejuvenation. Whether you're lounging by the pool or battling the humidity on a city street, these icy beauties will have you feeling as cool as a cucumber (quite literally).

Timing is Everything

When to Use Cooling Eye Gels?

Cooling eye gels are best used in the morning or after prolonged exposure to the sun. Applying them in the morning helps reduce puffiness and dark circles, giving you a fresh, awake look to start your day. After a day at the beach or an outdoor activity, these eye gels can provide much-needed relief, soothing the delicate skin around the eyes and reducing the appearance of fatigue. For an extra cooling effect, store your eye gels in the refrigerator before use.

When to Use Cooling Masks?

Cooling face masks are versatile and can be used whenever your skin needs a hydration boost. They are particularly effective after sun exposure or as a part of your evening skincare routine. For a midday pick-me-up, a quick 5-15 minute mask session can revitalize your skin and prepare you for the rest of the day.

When to Chill Out: Utilizing Cooling Skincare

Cooling eye gels and masks offer targeted benefits depending on when you use them:

Cooling Eye Gels: Use them in the morning to reduce puffiness and awaken tired eyes. They're also fantastic after a long day or a late night to revitalize and brighten the under-eye area.

Cooling Masks: Cooling face masks are a great way to rehydrate and refresh your skin after sun exposure or extended time outdoors. They can also be used as a pre-makeup step to create a smooth, hydrated canvas for your foundation.

Cooling skincare goes beyond hydrating - the cooling effect offers additional benefits:

  • Reduced Puffiness: The chilled temperature constricts blood vessels, helping to de-puff tired eyes and reduce facial inflammation.
  • Enhanced Absorption: The cooling effect can help tighten pores, allowing for better absorption of the mask or gel's hydrating ingredients.
  • Soothing Relief: The coolness provides a calming and soothing sensation, perfect for hot summer days.

Achieving That Coveted Summer Glow

To achieve that sought-after dewy, glowing skin in the summer, hydration is key. Incorporate lightweight, hydrating serums and moisturizers into your daily routine. Use products with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and aloe vera to maintain moisture levels. Don't forget to exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells and allow your skincare products to penetrate better. And, of course, make the most of Patchology's cooling eye gels and masks to keep your skin looking fresh and radiant.

A dewy, radiant complexion is the ultimate summer beauty goal, but it can be a challenge when you're battling sweat, oil, and environmental aggressors. Fear not, Patchology has your back (and face) with their hydrating heroes. Indulge in a cooling face mask to quench your skin's thirst and lock in moisture for a lit-from-within glow that will have everyone asking for your secret.

These thirst-quenching masks are infused with powerhouse hydrators like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and botanical extracts, which work to replenish your skin's moisture levels and create a plump, dewy canvas. But they don't just hydrate – they also shield your complexion from environmental stressors that can lead to dullness, fine lines, and uneven texture.

But the true secret to that covetable dewy look? Layering your hydrators! After treating your skin to a refreshing cooling mask, follow up with a lightweight serum and a dewy, water-based moisturizer to lock in all that luscious hydration. You'll be left with a lit-from-within glow that's as effortless as it is envy-inducing.
