4. Some medications and vitamins are best kept at below-room temperature. In addition, the humidity and steam typical of most bathrooms can shorten the freshness of some medications, vitamins and beauty products. (Check with your pharmacist regarding your medications.)
5. Products like eye cream and lotion simply feel better when you apply them cold. This is especially trueif your skin is irritated or burned. You can also cool your face masks, extend the life of fragrances, make eyeliner easier to sharpen and prevent your lipstick from melting in a heat wave by tossing them in that convenient bathroom fridge.
6. In addition to bottled water and vino, natural beauty aids can be stored in the bathroom. When I was a tween, the teen magazines used to tell us to crack eggs over our heads for protein and to wash our hair with beer. (I don’t know why; it was the ’80s.) Let me make it clear that I tried both of these things and recommend neither — they were messy and stinky with questionable results. Despite my bad experiments with eggs, beer and my once-big-permed locks, there are plenty of good ways to use perishable food products for beauty. For example, cucumber slices for puffy eyes, ice cubes for a pore-tightening face dunk in the sink, or ingredients like yogurt and milk for homemade masks.
7. They’re easy to hide. Thanks to modern technology, refrigerators in the bathroom don’t have to make the space look like a dorm room — they can blend right in with the rest of the cabinets. Refrigerated drawers like these are the best way to completely camouflage things.
Can you think of any more good reasons to have a refrigerator in the bathroom? If so, please keep schooling me in the Comments section.
