Personal bests


After their recent successes at the Olympic games, Team GB is basking in the afterglow and our top Olympians take time out to reveal their beauty regime.


A total of 538 athletes make up Team GB but certain faces have already become Olympic favourites.


Jessica Ennis, Victoria Pendleton, Keri-Anne Payne and Tom Daley reveal their favourite products to help them look their best. From track and field, to pool and diving platform, these Olympians are proving athletes can step up to the style podium too. Lisa Haynes discovers their fast track secrets to groomed glory.


Describe your daily beauty routine? I’m training pretty much every day so it’s important for me to keep my skin clean and hydrated. I’ll start off by cleansing my skin in the morning with a smoothing scrub you can use in the shower. Then I’ll always protect my skin with an SPF as a lot of my training is outdoors. The Olay Essentials Complete Care SPF30 is ideal as it’s really light so doesn’t clog my pores and make me sweat more.


Do you wear make-up to train or compete? Absolutely. I wear make up every day when I’m training - I always like to look and feel my best. I’ll wear an oil-free foundation then apply black eyeliner and mascara. I’m an eyeliner addict and love dark smoky eyes for a night out.


Jessica Ennis, 26 Athlete


What are your must-have beauty products? Bobbi Brown cosmetics - especially their foundations. I also love MAC for eyeliners and mascaras, and they also do a lovely Lip Conditioner.

How do you like to recover after a hard training session? I love a long hot soak in the bath. My favourite product is the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak - it smells a bit like Deep Heat! When I have some downtime, I love to go to a spa with friends. I don’t really have massages as I have plenty of painful sports ones during training!
