5-Time Olympian And Best-Selling Author To Appear At Life Time Fitness Chanhassen

AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care is teaming up with Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life Company (NYSE: LTM) to help club members nationwide learn more about how to get beautiful, soft skin. AmLactin ® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care will host regional promotions on social media as well as a series of in-club education days throughout January and February, where Life Time members will learn skin care secrets and receive samples. A special appearance hosted by AmLactin ® brand ambassador, five-time Olympic swimmer and health advocate, Dara Torres, will be held at Life Time Fitness Chanhassen, on January 11. Life Time members can mix and mingle with the Olympian starting at 9:45 a.m., picking up fitness advice and tapping into Torres’ wealth of knowledge about soft, smooth skin.

“I’ve always said, a healthy lifestyle radiates from the inside, out—but being active and working out can pull moisture from the skin’s surface, leaving it dry, dull and uncomfortable,” Torres said. “After spending decades in the pool, my skin was constantly dry. I’ve tried so many different products that promise relief, but AmLactin ® moisturizers are the only products that keep my skin soft and smooth.”

Cold weather months are especially harsh on skin because dropping temperatures and lower humidity levels can strip the skin of its natural moisture. Torres offers these top tips for soft skin, even in the face of winter weather:
  • Feeling parched? Your skin is too! Staying hydrated means drinking 8-10 glasses of water every day
  • Apply an exfoliating moisturizer that contains alpha-hydroxy acids twice daily after bathing while skin is still moist
  • If using hand sanitizer, try one with added moisturizers or follow up with a hand cream to keep hands and nails from drying out
  • Don’t slip into a state of hibernation! Staying active and exercising regularly increases blood flow and reduces stress, both of which are great for skin
