So often, athletes are so concerned about what they put into their body that they neglect what they put ON their body. No, we aren't talking about clothing, were talking about protecting, nourishing, and taking care of their skin.
Whether it is on their hands, body, face, or feet, athletes, including us at Modern Athletic Health, could probably step up their skin care a notch or two. With that in mind, we were lucky enough to receive a care package from Turo Skin, a company that designs products with the active lifestyle in mind. Every item in their 10+ product line is designed for those who live an active life and need advanced skincare to protect and provide immediate results. They sent us a nifty toiletries carrying case with two compartments, along with a 3-in-1 shower cleanser (for hair, face, and body), a daily moisturizing lotion with SPF 15 sunscreen, an exfoliating shave cream, and a revitalizing eye cream.
Let's take a second to discuss how these products worked over the course of a couple weeks time before diving into the rest of their product line.
Turo Skin 3-in-1 shower gel is the perfect shower gel for those of us on the go. Placed in a convenient small tube, this product lathers like no other shampoo or soap we have ever used. The scent is refreshing and it doesn't leave an oily or slimy texture on your hair or skin after drying off. The scent of the product is long lasting and is still evident even after a long day at work or post-workout. We noticed that over the course of the couple weeks, it softened the skin on rougher areas such as the elbows and hands. Overall, a great multi-purpose shower gel for the active individual. 3-in-1 Shower Cleanser can be used for the hair, face and body. It washes away impurities from head to toe using a biodegradable, nonirritating, plant-based surfactant system. Hydrating and protecting, it rinses off cleanly and effortlessly without leaving residue, keeping the hair, face and body feeling fresh and moisturized, yet clean and ready for any further treatment.
Next, the Turo Skin Exfoliating Shave Geldid wonders over the course of the week. Once applied, the shave gel slightly stiffens up on your face and leaves you with a cooling sensation, almost like menthol. It helps to perk up the hair and stubble and aids in a close, clean shave. The best part about the shaving cream (besides the awesome stiffening tingling sensation), is that it virtually eliminates razor burn, small cuts, and irritation. Even with a cheap razor, we escaped the shave with no red dots, itchiness, or burning. How many other shave creams can you say does that? It also did wonders for dry skin on the face and doubled as a lotion upon completion. Why is it so good? Because it isn’t “just” shaving cream. What starts as a light and soothing cream transforms into foam once it is applied to your skin. When that happens, your skin is exfoliated – allowing for the closest possible shave. Then moisturizers penetrate your skin, leading to reduced redness and chafing. And anti-aging ingredients like Algae Extract and Glucosamine HCL then go to work. Because what's the point of having a close shave only to see wrinkles? This may be our new go-to shave cream.
The Turo Skin Revitalizing Eye Cream, although probably better used over a long period, did a great job in almost instantly removing the dark purple circles under the eyes. While it probably helps to lessen dark spots, wrinkles, crow's feet and more over time, we noticed its immediate impact on dark circles. It's great to eliminate looking tired all the time, even if you totally are! This cream will reverse the visible signs of aging through active plant extracts and a revolutionary Copper and Amino Acid Complex. This lightweight cream replenishes moisture leaving skin feeling soft and hydrated, while also protecting skin from water loss. This luxurious cream is also formulated to optimize ingredient performance to smooth wrinkles and fine lines for skin that looks and feels younger, healthier and firmer.
Last but not least, the Turo Skin Daily Moisturizing Lotion + Sunscreen was another huge hit, especially with Modern Athletic Health CEO who coaches High School Football. "I've spent 6-8 hours per day in the sun over the last two weeks using this Lotion and Sunscreen from Turo. I got a great tan, didn't burn at all, and my skin has kept a soft and healthy look and feel that I know would not be possible with that much outdoor time and your run of the mill sun block." It definitely did its job softening the skin on dry areas such as the elbows and hands.
