Our top 5 new year skin resolutions for 2023!

  • 1. Hydration hydration hydration
  • Drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day will help your skin stay hydrated and healthy. From helping your skin maintain elasticity, to reducing fine lines and wrinkles, water can do amazing things for your skin and your overall health.

  • 2. Feed your skin by eating well
  • Your skin loves antioxidant rich brightly coloured fruit and vegetables (the brighter and also darker the better!). Antioxidants work in the deep layers of the skin to protect collagen from ultraviolet light and damage from environmental factors such as pollution. Our skin also loves omega 3 oil found in good fats - salmon, flaxseed oil, cashews nuts, avocado. They regulate oil production, improve hydration and minimise the signs of ageing.

  • 3. Exercise
  • When we exercise, our heart rate increases which in turn increases our blood circulation. This helps to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the skin to keep skin healthy, whilst at the same time promoting collagen production and new skin cells to help with skin ageing.

  • 4. Be consistent with a simplified skincare routine
  • We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. Our whole philosophy aligns with having an uncomplicated, easy peasy, authentic and effective skincare routine. Skincare should work to increase the skin's immunity, deliver the necessary micronutrients to fuel the skin cells and protect the skin’s natural barrier. All of which FRII[S]MITH products do! Happy dance! 

  • 5. Don’t give up on retinol
  • Retinol is a powerhouse of an active ingredient. It increases skin cell production, it exfoliates, it unclogs pores and it increases collagen production which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a fresher, plump appearance. But retinoids can cause redness and irritation, although this doesn’t mean you can’t use retinol at all. Just once or twice a week will still see benefits! Our i am [vitality] active night serum is a perfect introduction for using retinol.
