Woohoo, the Olympics start in only two days, and I can't wait to tune in. This got me to thinking about what products might be most appropriate for Olympic athletes to keep their focus on the competition.
With all of the twirling, jumping, floating, and running that will be going down in Beijing, I can only imagine the toll it will take on each athlete's body — not to mention his or her hair. I'll get you started with a Jonathan's Detox Dirt Clarifying Shampoo ($22). It's perfect for a swimmer since it's a gentle clarifying shampoo, which helps get rid of chlorine, heavy metal, environmental pollutants, and sweaty buildup.
What products do you think will be appropriate for these Olympic competitors, whether it be your favorite sunscreen protection or no-fuss, all-in-one product that leaves them more time to practice? Share your choices by bookmarking items from around the web and tagging them with the phrase sporty beauty. I'll feature your favorites here next Tuesday.
