How an Olympic Bobsledder Takes Care of Her Skin in Subzero Temps

The countdown to the PyeongChang Olympics is officially on, which means it's high time we all got to know some of the athletes competing on the global stage. But chances are that you already recognize Aja Evans's name: The bobsledder didn't just make her Olympic debut four years ago in Sochi, but she brought home a bronze medal as well. (Pretty impressive for someone who only started bobsledding two years prior.)

This makes the Chicago native one to watch next month, as she and teammate Jamie Greubel Poser attempt to move their way up the podium. And as she steps into the spotlight, Evans is using her platform to lean in to the Games' message of inclusivity. She and a handful of other athletes have partnered with Procter & Gamble to spread the word about the company's Love Over Bias campaign, which champions diversity and acknowledges the hardships that many families face when working toward such lofty accomplishments.

"The world is finally catching up with diversity," she tells us, echoing former figure skater Michelle Kwan's sentiments on the new initiative. "My sport went from such a predominantly white sport to not. The Love Over Bias campaign really spoke to me since I grew up in Chicago where I could have been exposed to negative things, but my mom stayed in my corner and supported me through everything. To have that experience is the main reason the campaign resonates so much for me."

A self-described "glam girl," Evans is also an Olay ambassador and something of a pro at keeping her complexion in top form even as she whips through subzero temps at up to 100 mph. (Spoiler: She also loves wearing makeup while competing, helmet be damned.) Below, she gives us a closer look at her beauty routine—and how she stays in shape off the track.
