Allyson Felix and her secret skincare routine

Felix created history by clinching Olympic medals in her fifth mega-quadrennial games, but her first as a mother. Notably, she grabbed the gold and bronze medals in the 4*400 m relay race and 400m race. However, fresh from winning the Olympics, Felix appeared at the Met Gala 2021, leaving the audience in disbelief with her avatar.

She won her 11th medal just one day after becoming the most-decorated woman in Olympic track history when she won bronze in the 400m during the Track and Field competition at the Olympic Stadium at the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games on August 7th, 2021 in Tokyo, Japan.

Wowing fans with her beauty, the Olympian was kind enough to reveal her secret. She said“I try to make time for myself. I start my day with a gratitude journal and just have some quiet time for me before my day starts. It’s really basic. I try to keep my skin moisturized.” 

She further also revealed what brings a glow to her face apart from the 11 Olympic medals and her daughter Camryn. “I use Cetaphil. I like Olay’s products. I’m out in the sun every day competing and training, so sunscreen is very important and I’m drinking lots of water. I think a lot of it comes from diet and trying to eat the right things,” said Allyson.

Felix’s Olympic journey

The American sprinting legend competed at her maiden Olympics in 2004. To date, she has appeared five times in the mega quadrennial games. Remarkably, she has clinched seven gold, three silver, and one bronze medal in her journey.
