Inside the Simple Skincare Event
On May 8, I joined Simple Skincare as they announce their exciting new partnership with, U.S. Women’s Soccer Goalkeeper, Hope Solo. As we sipped on refreshingy cool non alcoholic cocktails and champagne, my co-hort and new bff Amika Haircare Educator Starlena Johnson got a chance to chat with Hope Solo and play with products. Hope shared her love of natural skincare and was really thrilled about being in the forefront to promoting Simple Skincare.
Hope Solo is widely considered the best goalkeeper in the world and with that title comes a hectic life and a busy schedule. Hope plays tough on the field, but she also has a sensitive side – her skin. Now, she is sharing her personal story and advice on how she manages her sensitive skin with balanced lifestyle choices and products like Simple – the first and only collection of mass facial skincare designed especially for those with sensitive skin.
Hope, recently named an AOL MAKER for her pioneering contributions to women’s soccer, is gearing up for the Summer Games in London and with that comes arduous training, frequent travel and changing climates, all of which contribute to her skin sensitivities. Hope may have an extreme schedule and lifestyle, but as one of the 58% of women with sensitive skin*, she is not alone. While not all women are pro-athletes, their skin can be just as affected by their lifestyle and environmental stressors.
“My philosophy is look good, feel good, play good – and I live by this everyday,” said Hope Solo. “Simple looks at skincare the way that I look at life – the choices I make have an impact on my skin and I am mindful of maintaining a balance. I’m happy to finally have products I can rely on and share my experiences with other women.”
Regular exercise, a healthy diet, stress management and skincare essentials from Simple – which has no dyes, artificial perfumes or harsh irritants – are what keep Hope’s sensitive skin in check and she will share her trade secrets for balancing it all. One lucky person will have the chance to meet the Gold Medalist, experience her health and fitness routine and hear about her time in London competing with the US Women’s National Soccer Team. A grand-prize winner will receive a 4-day, 3-night all-inclusive trip for two to Los Angeles to meet Hope and experience her balanced routine. Enjoy one-on-one time with the soccer star, soak in all her skincare secrets, workout like a pro-athlete and dine at one of her favorite restaurants. Enter for a chance to win at www.EscapeWithHope.com, where you can also see Hope’s sensitive skin story. Women can take Simple’s Skin Health Consultation to evaluate their own skin sensitivities at www.simpleskincare.com.
“Hope’s Simple Skincare Escape” will run from 02:00 PM ET on May 8, 2012 through02:00 PM ET on July 17, 2012. Simple is a proud presenter of MAKERS, a dynamic, interactive video experience developed by AOL featuring exclusive access to compelling stories from trailblazing women like Hope.
