Skincare For The Olympics: For The Athlete In All Of Us!


Did you watch the opening ceremonies for the Olympics? What do we think makes the Olympics so appealing for so many of us?

I think it’s the small part inside all of us that saysI could do that.’ It’s our internal athlete that, for a split second while on the treadmill or swimming laps, believes ourselves to be the very best. And you know what? We are! Let’s give ourselves credit for all that we do to stay in shape—Olympic athletics or not—and take the time to make sure that we’re caring for our skin while getting healthy.

Michael Phelps will rebound, we’re sure, but how about his skin? Make sure to protect your skin from the harsh chemicals used in pools! To save your skin from both harsh clorine and natural salt water, try our Protective Cream For Swimming. (We also have a cream to save your skin while skiing.)



Sun Protection

I think we can all rightfully doubt that ancient Olympians bothered to use sunscreen during competition; what’s of no question is just how important it is to slather on some sunblock before outdoor activity. After all, the lifespan of the average person in B.C. Greece was rather short, but you’re going to have that skin of yours for much longer. Let’s be sure to protect it!




Freshening Up, Greek-Style

For thousands of years, people have placed a high value on rosewater for its many nourishing properties. The Ancient Greeks, in fact, valued their rose gardens as highly as they did their fruit orchards and fields of wheat. You might wonder if some of their Olympic athletes used rosewater after competition. What we do know is that Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater is a constant favorite among athletes to refresh the skin when it’s not possible to shower immediately.

As a long-time writer, editor, and esthetician, I’ve had an ongoing love affair with Mario Badescu Skin Care for years. I can usually be found reading, knitting, painting, trying new beauty and skin care products, and telling everyone to wear more sunscreen. These days, I’m feeling super grateful for the opportunity to share more Mario with the world! I believe that better skin care changes lives. For more about me, visit my Google+ Page.
