The talented athletes competing in the 2018 Winter Olympians have gone above and beyond to prove they are the strongest, most dedicated people to represent their countries and show off their skills on the world stage. They're tough, they're athletic, and they've probably accomplished more at 18 than most will in an entire lifetime. While they're probably better suited to offer advice on health and fitness, the ladies of the winter games also have some serious experience dealing with dry, frigid winter air, and they know how to keep their skin in just as prime condition as they keep their bodies.

These are the skincare products that Olympic skiers, ice skaters, and snowboarders swear by for healthy, hydrated skin, no matter the conditions, according to Self.

No stranger to spending copious amounts of time outdoors in below-freezing temperatures, cross-country skier Sadie Bjornsen needs a face lotion with powerful sun protection. "My search for the perfect face lotion with SPF that doesn't leave your face feeling oily is over. I don't break out when I use this, and it keeps my skin protected and moisturized."

Another cross-country skier, Kikkan Randall needs skincare products to keep her skin hydrated while she's working hard in the dry winter air. "Nothing beats this classic for dealing with chapped lips. My favorite is the original jar, but I also keep several containers stashed around, including in my training hydration pack," she says.
