Every month we explore how FRÉ has transformed the skin of one of our ambassadors.
About me: I’m Yasmine, a Yoga Teacher and Wellness Coach from London, UK. I have a very active lifestyle and love to move and sweat, but my yoga practice on and off the mat has also taught me to switch off and turn inwards, appreciate calm and stillness, and embrace rest and recuperation. I’m always pressing myself to learn new things about Inside and Outside Wellness for myself, but also so that I can share them with my clients, friends, family, and you! I’ve learned to love and care for myself over the years so that I have more to give to those around me too.
Where do I begin?
I think we’ve all been there, searching for that ‘perfect’ skincare brand and establishing ‘the best’ skincare routine. We are fortunate enough to live in a world full of choice, and whilst that has great benefits, the sheer volume of options, can sometimes be rather overwhelming.
Wouldn’t it be great to find a skincare routine that was developed for me, my lifestyle, my type of skin, and my budget? Yes, it would.
And…Yes I’ve found it!
I’ve been using FRÉ skincare products for a year now, and my skin, has never looked or felt better. The thing that would stress me out the most, when trying to find good products that suited my skin, was that I didn’t really know a lot about skin! So without that wealth of knowledge, it felt as though I would never be able to find something that would truly work, without spending a huge amount of time and all my savings, testing them all out!
FRÉ does have a variety of products to try, but the difference is all of them are suitable, for all people. They suit all skin types, and are specifically formulated to cater for my sweat loving life.
My skin journey…
As a yoga teacher and someone who generally has an active lifestyle, I workout most days, love to cycle, run, and get super sweaty. Now, it’s never been easier for me to keep my skin in great condition, before and after a sweat! With so many powerful active ingredients in every product, I always know I can carry something from my FRÉ collection around with me that will keep my skin fresh and healthy.
If I’m ever away from home, the first thing I’ll pack is my 123FRÉ Set.
Cleanse, Revive, Moisturize.
It doesn’t get easier than that.
No mess, no fuss, no carrying around moisturizer and SPF, and no nasties being used on my face. My other ‘must have’ is their REFRESH ME: Hydrating Glow Mist. Post yoga class, one or two sprays of this and it feels like I’ve just stepped out of a spa facial (not to mention how yummy it smells!).
I rarely wear makeup anymore, which is a huge change from feeling like I neededto cover my skin up a few years back. Before using FRÉ, I’d already began to resist the temptation of masking my face with tons of foundation and powder, but inside I was still masking the way I felt about my skin, and this inevitably had an impact on my confidence too.
When you feel healthy, your confidence skyrockets too! Since using FRÉ, I’m confident my skin is getting the best possible care, and I know it looks so much better than it did a year ago. This is a direct reflection of how much healthier it is now.
But it goes deeper than that…
One of my main goals when I started to become more active on social media was to make sure that if I ever had an opportunity to represent a brand, I did so because I truly believed in the products and ethos. So here I am, a year on and I couldn’t be prouder to be a FRÉ Ambassador. Not only do I love, trust, and use all the products, it feels so fulfilling to work alongside a brand who cares about sustainability and community.
FRÉ produce excellent skincare products, but just as importantly, (through their sustainable initiatives) they work tirelessly to help empower the women cooperatives, who are at the frontline; harvesting and producing one of the most powerful ingredients used in thousands of beauty products today… Argan.
My top tips:
All FRÉ products are full of active ingredients that help to support the health of your skin. This means a little goes a long way and you can be gentle when applying your products onto your face and body! Here’s how you can get started with my favorite FRÉ products:
1 – Gently massage PURIFY ME hydrating cleanser all around your face whilst it’s damp, once all the gorgeous little Jojoba beads have smoothed on to you skin, use lukewarm water to remove everything.
2 – Dab your skin dry with a clean towel before softly smoothing on your REVIVE ME serum all over your freshly cleaned face (avoiding the eye area).
3 – Time for protection and hydration: using a patting motion with your fingers apply your PROTECT ME SPF cream (don’t forget to take a deep inhale to appreciate all the lovely scents).
4 – Finally, I always finish off my routine with an eye cream and so should you! The BRIGHTEN ME eye cream is incredibly soft and gentle; apply a tiny amount under your eyes and dab slowly with your ring finger
5 – And there you have it, skin that is fresh, glowing, and ready to go!
