Fighting Dry Skin with Olay

beauty testing, Ultra Moisture Body Wash

You know what suffers when you train for a triathlon? Not just your muscles. You skin and your hair. Chlorine, wind and swear ( swim, bike and run) dry out skin. As I have gotten older I do what I can to keep my fitness levels up. So I work out and my skin suffers. But fortunately, there are solutions that come in a bottle. I won't cut back on training for the sake of dry skin. I need solutions that don't involve being sedentary or stating out of the sun.

This month I have been testing out a new body wash that adds moisture in the shower, After I train, I jump in our outdoor shower and lather up. My summer-dry skin has improved. While I still need a bit of moisturizer, I have seen progress in my skin. My heels and elbows were the areas where I saw the most improvement. I'm not going to stop training--I just don't want to look like I've spent hours in the pool or on the bike. The right skincare can make all the difference.

Did you know that virtually all of the moisturizers in the leading body wash just wash down the drain? Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash is different. The cleansing lather releases a moisturizing lotion.
