We’ve seen athleisure infiltrate the realm of body care, with brands like Yuni, makeup with Birchbox’s Arrow launch and now, the fitness-focused public has skincare, thanks to first-of- its-kind natural facial range, FRÉ. Formulated for women who work out, the breakthrough formula is infused with Argania Active Complex©. The brand’s 3-step treatment addresses all workout-related skin damage issues including wrinkles, loss of collagen, dark spots, dehydration, redness and breakouts.
The best part is that you can use pre- and post- any type of workout from Bikram yoga to running to barre class. The regimen helps build your skin’s resilience during any type of intense exercise, even in extreme climatic conditions. I’m an outdoor runner and I am super choosy about my SPF because I need something water-resistant, light enough not to break me out, but robust enough to ensure my skin is protected — all the while not running into my eyes and blinding me on my run when I sweat. It’s a tall order indeed, but I found that Protect Me’s ($50) light texture, moisturizing properties, and SPF 30 fit the bill during a 60-degree long run I did last month.
The trio also includes Purify Me, a hydrating facial cleanser ($35), which removes makeup, dirt, and sweat quickly and easily post-workout. Revive Me ($65) is a hydrating anti-aging replenishing serum you can throw in your bag for application post-exercise before you head out for the evening or to the office, if you’re a morning sweater. FRÉ products are suited for all skin types, not tested on animals, vegan and free from Parabens, SLS, Mineral Oil, DEA, Petrolatum, PEG and Propylene Glycol.
