Demanding and perfectionist, she puts her whole heart into her work.
Alejandra Quereda Flores (Alicante, 1992) captain of the Rhythmic Gymnastics Spanish Team and elite Spanish gymnast with most official international medals.
Right now the Spanish team, “#equipaso”, is among the best of the moment and is preparing for Rio 2016 with the facial hygiene in 3 steps Purexpert 1-2-3 from Germaine de Capuccini. #RUMBOARIO123
What do you think are the keys to your success?
Without a doubt perseverance and sacrifice.
Apart from the pace of life you experience, very hard and demanding by the way, you are studying Medicine. How can you combine training and studying?
When you like something the effort is less and the motivation is greater. With will power, desire and passion anything can be achieved.
Do you have any spare time to live the life of a girl your age: talking with friends or reading a book? (laughs)
Not much really. With studying and training it is hard to find time in my calendar. The key is organisation. I always try to find a moment of disconnection; I make the best of my spare time.
Which would be your perfect plan?
A trip with the team, but only to rest, without competitions or training (laughs). It is something we have been wanting to organise for some time.
What is special and different about an Olympic year?
As for the rhythm of training, for us it is the same. We train to achieve always the best results, it doesn’t matter what competition it is. Most of all we notice it in the repercussion in the media and the support. Spain gives it all for athletes in the Olympic Games.
Now you are facing a new sports challenge, the Rio Olympic Games. With the hours that you train, the competitions, the travels… how do you look after your skin?
I’m very constant with my beauty routine 1-2-3 from PUREXPERT, this year we have learned with Germaine de Capuccini the importance of looking after and treating the skin since you are young.
They are three super easy steps, caring for my skin has become a fast and simple routine.
Olympic athletes are exposed to a high level of demand. Do you notice that this affects your skin? What is your skin type?
My skin is combination. Also, it is affected by the sport we practice, as we sweat, we make up, the tension of the competition, the mat, etc. are aggressions that affect our skin. That is why it is so important to look after it daily and with the specific products for our skin type to achieve healthy skin.
In your life nothing is left to chance. We understand that your recipe is to be constant and persevere in studied movements. Being so demanding, what do you expect from a cosmetic product?
Realistic results. It is clear that results are achieved with time and perseverance.
Is this why you like the products PUREXPERT 1-2-3? For being a facial hygiene in 3 steps?
Totally. Before knowing Germaine de Capuccini I only worried about step 3 “hydrate”. Now I have learned the importance of: 1- Cleanse, 2- Renew and 3- Hydrate. They are three super easy steps. Looking after my skin has become a fast and simple routine.

What does a good cosmetic like the PUREXPERT line give to you in your daily life?
Freshness and purity. You feel better.
Since you use PUREXPERT what have you noticed on your skin?
The pores are reduced and the redness that used to appear because of the nerves on the days prior to competitions has disappeared.
Do you have any beauty trick that you would like to share?
If I’m honest, looking after myself with the Germaine de Capuccini products (laughs). Although I have to say that for eliminating spots I always carry in my bag the Roll-On Spot S.O.S., spots disappear incredibly!
