I've just returned from Vancouver!
A few things about the Olympic scene: Vancouver is absolutely beautiful with water and mountains all around; the city was packed with hot celebs such as Rachel Bilson and Mark Salling; hockey is more than a sport in Canada, it's religion; and most astonishingly to me: Every athlete, no matter what their sport or how rigorous their training, had gorgeous, glowing skin.
It's no wonder they all glow, what with the rigorous activity (circulation is good for skin!). Also, many rely on tried and true products like Olay Quench lotion (a fave of mine during the cold, dry season) and Cover Girl tinted moisturizer. I learned this when I dropped by the P&G Family House, a venue in Vancouver where athletes and their families could gather and bond before and after events.
P&G didn't just honor athletes, they gave major props to the women behind the stars, their moms! In a special "Thanks, Mom" program, the company treated the moms (of such cool athletes as Evan Lysacek!) to the works, including spa treatments -- how beautiful is that?!
