For some, self-care equals an indulgent at-home beauty routine—especially these days, when trips to the spa are few and far between. But are you getting everything you can out of those luxe lotions and potions displayed on your vanity? Even the most ardent beauty experts among us may not be aware that certain face creams, night treatment serums stored in amber glass, masks and sheet masks all benefit from being stored in a refrigerator. Enter AJ Madison, a home and kitchen appliance showroom that recently opened its first location in the DC region in Tysons Corner. The company is the first in the DMV to offer the Summit Appliance BeautiFridge, a commercial-grade makeup refrigerator designed to properly store and display skin care products.
The compact fridge features a tinted door to eliminate most UV light and an adjustable thermostat to ensure that your beauty products are stored at the recommended temp. The BeautiFridge comes in ruby, blush pink and mint to match whatever vibe your vanity has going. And though there’s science behind storing beauty products at cold temperatures, we’re most excited to put on night creams that feel cool and soothing at the end of a long day. Sanity-saving self-care, indeed. // AJ Madison: 8500 Leesburg Pike, Tysons Corner; $609-$699; ajmadison.com
