FRÉ by Skin Problem: Which routine is best for you?

Ilana Hart May 31, 2021

To keep our skin glowing, we need solutions that work for skin that sweats and also address specific skin concerns, like acne, wrinkles, redness, and dull, dry skin.

The Argania Active Complexⓒ used in all FRÉ products has infinite benefits for every skin problem. It is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and is full of antioxidants to help treat sun damage, breakouts while infusing skin with deep nourishment and hydration. And, there are many other active ingredients that are advantageous in resolving these issues.

I sat down with FRÉ dermatologist Dr. Debi to discuss the optimal routine for each of these major skin issues, including which products are best suited for each skin problem.


BREAKOUTS & ACNE 

Acne is a chronic inflammatory condition, which occurs as a result of multiple factors, like genetics, hormones (increased sebum production), and build-up of bacteria in the sebaceous glands of the skin.

Sweat can exacerbate breakouts and acne development (what’s called “sports acne” or “mechanical acne”). While exercising, sweat mixes with sebum, dead skin cells and pollutants, clogging the pores and trapping toxins and bacteria in the skin.

When managing acne and breakouts, it’s important to cleanse the skin immediately after a workout.

PURIFY ME is a wonderful cleanser that includes Ylang Ylang to balance sebum production and Rose Flower Oil, which has antimicrobial properties.

Every skin type should also be hydrated, including acne prone skin. It’s important to choose a non-comedogenic product like REVIVE ME.

"When managing acne and breakouts, it’s important to cleanse the skin immediately after a workout. It’s recommended to double cleanse, first with CLEANSE ME & then PURIFY ME."

At nighttime, it’s recommended to double cleanse, first with CLEANSE ME & then PURIFY ME to remove excess sweat, dead skin cells, sebum, and environmental toxins.

After cleansing, RECOVER ME is the best choice for a night cream because it is super nourishing and contains lavender oil to help fight acne.

Once a week, acne-prone skin should also be exfoliated with the DETOX ME mask, which contains Kaolin Clay, known to reduce excess oils and sebum, and purify and unclog pores.

If acne is particularly extreme, dermatological treatment may be needed in parallel to this skincare routine.

 

DRYNESS & DULL-LOOKING SKIN 

Dry skin can be caused by a combination of factors, including genetics, sun damage, aging, and oxidative damage to the skin.

When cleansing, it’s beneficial to use a product like CLEANSE ME, which has hyaluronic acid. This attracts moisture and helps soften skin.

Pure Argan Oil is also amazing to apply all over - to the face, body, lips, and even hair and nails. It’s super nourishing and filled with antioxidants.

"If there’s one product to use both day and night it’s REVIVE ME, a magical hydrating serum which replenishes lost vitamins and minerals to regenerate and hydrate skin."

And, of course, sun screen is a must-have since UV rays completely dry out skin. PROTECT ME is a perfect choice since it’s not only SPF30, it also contains sterols and essential fatty acids to help maintain a strong skin barrier.

 

REDNESS & IRRITATION 

Rosacea is a chronic disorder characterized by redness and visible blood vessels in the face. It may also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps.  

Best practices for managing rosacea include avoiding certain triggers, like UV rays, extreme temperatures, spicy foods, and alcohol; as well as proper skincare measures. The condition should also be treated by a dermatologist, and personalized for each person.

"I AM JOY is highly recommended for use throughout the day, as many times as desired. It contains citrus fruit extract and rose flower oil, which help reduce redness and refresh the skin."

Rosacea tends to cause dry skin. REVIVE ME and GLOW ME is an excellent combination, because they are both very moisturizing and hydrating. GLOW ME has the added benefit of SPF to protect against UV rays, plus, because it is tinted, this helps to hide the redness.

PROTECT ME is also a great sunscreen option, and it has many soothing, anti-inflammatory ingredients like chamomile, melissa and rooibos.

WRINKLES & AGING 

As you age, your skin naturally loses collagen and elastin. Along with other factors, like genetics, sun damage, and not taking care of our skin properly, this can cause skin to deteriorate.

That’s why it’s important to start implementing an anti-aging routine well before wrinkles and lines begin to appear.

REVIVE ME is a wonderful serum to apply daily, since it contains essential fatty acids which combat wrinkles.

Using a good eye contour cream like BRIGHTEN ME is also essential, because the skin around the eyes is one of the first areas to show visible signs of aging. BRIGHTEN ME has a magical ingredient called eyeliss, which fights under-eye bags and smooths the appearance of fine lines. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which improves elasticity and deeply hydrates skin.

Applying sunscreen is perhaps the most important step in a daily skincare routine, since sun damage is one of the major catalysts for aging. Use PROTECT ME every day to fight free radicals, firm skin, and prevent wrinkles.

At nighttime, it’s recommended to double cleanse, first with CLEANSE ME & then PURIFY ME to remove excess sweat, dead skin cells, sebum, and environmental toxins.

The best choice for a night cream is RECOVER ME. It contains niacinamide to restore the skin’s suppleness; tocopherol to combat UV damage; and acetyl hexapeptide to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. RECOVER ME is deeply nourishing and helps improve skin’s elasticity and firmness.
