60 seconds with Frankie – Derma One ambassador, actress and IMEDEEN scanning consultant
If Frankie’s face looks familiar, that’s maybe because you’ve caught her in one of her many West End stage roles. Currently appearing in Guys and Dolls at the Savoy theatre, Frankie is literally an all-singing, all-dancing member of the IMEDEEN team and her enthusiasm and zest for life are infectious! Frankie has been taking IMEDEEN Derma One skincare tablets for 3 years and loves the all over skin benefits: “My skin is softer and smoother than it’s ever been and it’s not just my face that feels more hydrated, it’s my body too!”
What’s your daily beauty routine?
During stage performances I have to wear a lot of heavy makeup and so having a good cleansing routine is very important. At the moment, I’m trying out a cleansing oil which is really effective. To keep my skin hydrated, I use a vitamin E moisturiser and a facial mist. I’m a huge fan of products with added antioxidants and if they smell gorgeous too that’s an added bonus!
What would be your desert island beauty product, apart from IMEDEEN?
It would have to be a big tub of extra virgin coconut oil. It’s highly moisturising, plus it's a great oil to eat and also has antibacterial properties so can be used in many ways! Concealer and lip balm would come a close second and third!
How do you stay in shape?
I do a lot of dance so this keeps me fit, but I also love the gym, running and Bikram yoga. I’m a big fan of detoxes and will have the occasional day when I’ll drink juice and water only. I always feel energized afterwards and it’s good to give my digestive system a rest now and then. It’s important to be in tune with your body.
Who’s your role model?
I’m in awe of all women who manage to juggle motherhood alongside incredible careers. Jessica Ennis and an actress called Jenna Russell spring immediately to mind
Are you an early bird or night owl?
I'm definitely more of a night owl. I finish work at around 10pm and it will take me a couple of hours to wind down after a show so I'm usually up quite late.
