Get their game faces! With less than 100 days to go before the 2022 Winter Olympics, athletes prepare to go for gold at the Beijing Games. In addition to strict workouts and training programs, top-level competitors must also prepare their skin, hair and body for the cold. After all, temperatures in Beijing in March are expected to be around 5-10 degrees Celsius. Watch the exclusive video above to hear the must-have winter products from Team USA.
Faye Gulini, Snowboardcross, triple Olympian
âAlways sunscreen. We’re so exposed there, whether it’s wind, snow, or rain sometimes. The sun seems to be the most aggressive on the skin and I am almost 30 years old. So I need as much sun protection as possible.
Casey Larson, ski jumping, former Olympian
âI think of a good old Chapstick, like Dermatome. It’s super cold, whatever you do, like waxing skis outside all winter, your hands are cracked, your lips are cracked.
Grace Miller, para-nordic ski, former Paralympic athlete
âI lived in Fairbanks, where it is very cold. So, we used to put petroleum jelly on her cheeks so that they wouldn’t get cold and freeze.
Oksana Masters, para-Nordic skiing, 10-time Paralympic medalist
âSunscreen, certainly sunscreen. I am so addicted to the skin. I love everything from serums to masks. I’m that crazy person on the plane with a sheet mask on my face. Since we are outdoors and in extreme elements, my choice is Supergoop sunscreen. Love this one and Rituals has one that is absolutely amazing, SPF 50.
Zach Miller, para-snowboard, Paralmpic hope
âSun Bum Lip Balm. It’s pretty important, especially when you’re at altitude, to take care of your lips and make sure they don’t get sunburned or chapped and everything in between. They also have great flavors and aromas, which is something that is always in my bag at the top of the course.
Madison Hubbell, figure skating, former Olympian
âI have very dry skin anyway and training in a cold environment doesn’t help that. I would say my favorite thing is Bobbi Brown’s Extra Repairing Moisturizer. This is one of their cult classic creams. This continues every day and under all my competitive makeup.
Jason Brown, figure skating, Olympic bronze medalist
âSince I cut my hair, I just use curl cream, it’s so much easier. I liked using gel, mousse and hairspray.
Hilary Knight, hockey, three-time Olympic medalist
âSince we’re not in the sun very often, a tinted moisturizer is always a good choice. Anything that constantly moisturizes the face in cold weather is always a plus. I think what’s surprising about our group is that we have huge skincare routines, whether it’s getting ready for game day and putting on makeup or just getting ready for the day. sports Hall.
Andrew Kurka, Alpine Racing, two-time Paralympic medalist
âThe thing I swear by in ski racing is a zinc lip cover. I love it because I hate to burn my lips. The rest of me will be tan, but these bad boys just love to crack up and go their separate ways. It’s not funny.
