Beauty Products Olympic Athletes Swear By

What do athletes know about beauty, you might ask? Plenty. These women have trained their butts off to be the best in their respective sport—and know that they have to look good for the cameras too (particularly if they’re planning on being up on the dais to win a medal). Here’s what some of these top athletes swear by:

Elana loves products full of good-for-you ingredients.

Elana Meyers This TeamUSA Bobsled and Skeleton champion swears by Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter. No wonder! This product—which contains no parabens, no petroleum, no mineral oil, and no artificial colors—uses all-natural beeswax, jojoba oil, and cocoa and shea butters to add moisture back into hair and natural shine. ($17; carolsdaughter)

Erin’s philosophy is “Everything in moderation.â€

Erin Hamlin The luge terrifies me (imagine blasting down an icy track with this tiny sled!), but for this athlete it’s just part of her everyday training. Hamlin will be competing for the Gold Medal wearing Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara, which pumps up the volume of your lashes up to 24 hours and is waterproof, key for winter sports! Plus, it conveniently comes in a cool gold called Black Gold. ($8.99; amazon)

Jazmine grew up in Wayne, New Jersey…not too far from where I live now.

Jazmine Fenlator Jazmine is a USA Bobsled champ who relies on Tweezerman tweezers for shaping up her gorgeous brows. I love Tweezerman too (the Ultra Precision Slant tweezers) as they’re super-precise and can grab the tiniest of hairs. What’s more, they pretty much last forever! ($35; tweezerman)

Devin began skiing at age 2…no wonder she’s tops in her sport!

Devin Logan This U.S. Ski and Snowboard champ will be celebrating her accomplishments wearing her favorite MAC Lustreglass Sheer-Shine Lipstick. This lip product offers incredible shine and color. ($25; ulta)

Ashley stays fit running on the beach…when she’s not on the ice.

Ashley Wagner This figure skating star won’t skate without Smashbox Mascara. While she didn’t share with me exactly which of the Smashbox mascaras she wears, I’m guessing it’s their latest: Smashbox Full Exposure Lash Volumizing Mascara … just what she needs for a medal photo op. ($28; sephora)

Hannah hikes and bikes in the off season to stay fit.

Hannah Kearney Anyone who can ski like this athlete does deserves a medal in my book. With all the time Hannah spends on the snow, in the sun, she’s sure to protect her skin with Olay Complete Daily Defense All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 30. The sun’s rays reflect off snow and ice, magnifying their damaging effects. ($14.99; walgreens)

I also got the beauty faves of some other top winter athletes: skier Lindsey Vonn loves Ralph Lauren’s Romance perfume ($63; sephora); bobsledder Katie Eberling swears by Goody hair ties to keep her hair back (one of my faves too as they don’t damage hair; from $3.99; amazon); and skater Christina Gao never leaves home without Burt’s Bees Lip Balm ($6.49; target).
