Few athletes put their skin through harsher environments than those in the Winter Olympics 2018. During a season that most of us spend hibernating, these athletes train through intense sun, cold, wind, and altitude. Can you imagine getting wind burn while ski racing at 80 mph down a mountainside or enduring flying ice pellets as you bob and weave on a snowboard? That all comes with the job for Winter Olympians, and these sports demand skin-care regimens as tough as the competitors themselves.
Sunscreen, moisturizing lotions, and protective lip balms are all on the must-pack list for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, where the environment is turning out to be even more brutal than expected. Even though the temperature is hovering around 20 degrees Fahrenheit and whipping winds are causing race delays, nothing is stopping these athletes from going for the gold medal.
Below, 13 skiers, ice skaters, snowboarders, and bobsledders competing at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang share their winter skin-care must-haves—most of which you can find at the drugstore.
