There’s always something refreshing about ringing in the new year. During the holidays, we are always focused on taking care of others, and we often forget to take care of the most important person–ourselves. As we move into 2023, we start to imagine the goals and resolutions we have in mind, and the focus starts to shift on manifesting a better life for ourselves and our bodies. This is the time to be selfish. Yes, it’s important to cut out sweets and exercise more, but what about our skin? In this blog, we have a few resolutions in mind geared toward your new year’s skin resolutions.
Out With The Old
There’s nothing more refreshing than getting rid of clutter that no longer serves a purpose in your life. It’s time to clean out your closets…and also your medicine cabinets. We’re not saying you need to ‘Marie Kondo’ everything, but really take the time to reflect on what is no longer serving a purpose in your life. Whether it’s holding on to expired beauty products, or products that don’t enhance your overall skin, a great new year’s resolution would be to really narrow down what works for you and what doesn’t.
Read The Labels
Some new year’s resolutions may be to start reading more books, and we couldn't agree more. Just don’t forget to read the labels on your beauty products as well. Another way to make the most of your new year’s skincare resolution is to really research the ingredients some companies are using in their products. Maybe you bought some products that were trendy, or even at a low price, but what is the true cost you are paying for these products? Some ingredients to avoid include parabens, which are generally preservatives, and can disrupt your endocrine system aka your hormones. Other harmful ingredients to avoid include formaldehyde, which is often found in shampoo, bodywash, and bubble bath products. There are endless ingredients in today’s popular beauty products that have very harmful effects on our bodies. You are your biggest advocate!
In With The New… Nourishing Silk!
In 2022, FACTORFIVE introduced Nourishing Silk, which is unlike any other product on the market. Neither a cream or serum, Nourishing Silk is a game-changer when it comes to skincare. Shown to visibly soothe, plump, and soften skin after any professional skin procedure, it helps fight the FIVE signs of aging: wrinkles, sun spots, skin laxity, thickness, and uneven skin texture. Our Nourishing Silk combines human stem cell derived growth factors with soothing ingredients like aloe vera and green tea extract to help nourish the skin. Nourishing Silk is formulated with humanity in mind–without parabens, mineral oil, sulfate detergents, phthalates, urea, DEA or TEA–and not tested on animals. Now that’s something we can get behind.
The Proof Is In The Pudding…AKA The Science!
As you all know, FACTORFIVE is skincare that’s powered by science, and results. Our team of scientists have recently concluded an 8 week, double-blind study on FACTORFIVE® Nourishing Silk vs ALASTIN Regenerating Skin Nectar®. Our team found that participants who have been using Nourishing Silk had realized a 41.7% and 36.7% decrease in wrinkle visibility in weeks 4 and 6 respectively. Meanwhile, subjects on ALASTIN Regenerating Skin Nectar® actually had higher wrinkle counts on average than before they began treatment. In week 8, for example, subjects showed an average of 20.7% increase in wrinkle visibility with ALASTIN Regenerating Skin Nectar®.
Happy New Year!
At the end of the day, and the end of the year, the team here at FACTORFIVE wishes you all the happiest & healthiest new year possible. Whether you have a bottle of champagne to celebrate, or buy a new planner to write down your goals, take the time to reflect and really project an amazing new year for yourself, and your skin. Cheers!
