Back to Basics with 123FRÉ

Exercise and movement in general are essential parts of your life but intense exercise, sweat, sun, and outdoor conditions can have a negative impact on your skin.

  • Breakouts  are triggered when facial skin pores are clogged by sweat and everyday grime. This is even more of a problem when we wear face masks between our workouts. 
  • Key minerals and vitamins are lost  through our sweat during exercise (Lactate, Urea, Magnesium, Glycine, Citrulline, Creatinine and Uric Acid). 
  • Premature aging is accelerated  by sun damage and is intensified when the skin's photosensitivity is increased by sweat. 
  • Collagen degeneration  and elasticity loss can be aggravated by regular intense exercise. The sun's ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB) have a harmful effect on skin, regardless of the weather (approx. 80% of these rays can pass through clouds). The sun's infrared rays (IRA) generate free radicals and have a premature photo-aging impact. 
  • The skin's delicate pH balance is upset  when sweat remains on the skin's surface, causing irritation, redness, itching and blotchiness. 
  • Dehydration and over-dryness  caused by sweat are worsened by extreme weather and environmental conditions.

Thankfully a healthy lifestyle combined with the right skincare routine can prevent and repair sweat and exercise induced skin damage.

Argania Active Complex© restores skin’s natural barrier

The core of all our products is Argania Active Complex©, a patent-pending formula that combines magical and super-hydrating Argan oil with the leaf water and stem cells of the Argan tree. Each ingredient has amazing properties, but when all three elements work together, something special happens. Argania Active Complex© restores skin’s natural barrier using potent antioxidants, moisturizing agents, and anti-inflammatory ingredients. It is the perfect solution to prevent and repair skin damage.

PURIFY ME: Soothing aloe and jojoba

Jojoba beads are made out of the wax of the jojoba shrub. Unlike other cleansing agents, these exfoliants are smooth spheres and do not cause microtears in facial skin (unlike exfoliating agents like apricot kernel). They are also 100% biodegradable. Aloe vera has antioxidant and antibacterial properties, but is best known for how incredible soothing it is to skin. With these nourishing ingredients, PURIFY ME provides the gentlest and most hydrating cleanse yet.

REVIVE ME: Hydrating hyaluronic acid

Skincare experts agree that one of the best ways to combat dehydrated skin is through the use of serums containing hyaluronic acid.  Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in skin that has the capacity to attract and hold vast amounts of moisture and works to replenish skin.  Our REVIVE ME serum is packed with ingredients to rehydrate and replenish skin. There is no better way to regulate skin’s moisture, strengthen the skin barrier, and prevent dehydration while continuing to train hard! 

SPF30 PROTECT ME: Protective sterols and squalene 

Squalene is a hydrocarbon that alleviates skin irritation and protects skin against UVB induced skin damage. Sterols are anti-inflammatory and can improve the skin’s natural production of collagen. Together, these ingredients help retain moisture in the skin, and ensure a fast absorption of product without clogging pores. This leaves active skin deeply nourished, protected, and clear from breakouts.
