MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- After three decades as a competitive swimmer, five-time Olympian, Dara Torres, emerged from her final lap at the 2012 Olympic Team Trials with her signature grace and style. Despite hanging up her Olympic cap, Torres shows no signs of slowing down and is looking eagerly toward this exciting new phase in her personal and professional life.
"From high school swim meets to swimming at the Olympic level, my time competing in the pool has largely shaped who I am. Now that this period of my life has come to a close, I am looking forward to sharing the experiences and knowledge I have picked up along the way," said Torres. "As the AmLactin® brand ambassador, I'm proud to continue to spread the word about this unique product as I transition into the next phase of my life. All the time I've spent in the water has taken quite a toll on my skin. The alpha hydroxy therapy in AmLactin® moisturizing lotion and cream penetrates dry skin and works as an exfoliant, making my skin look and feel amazing―it truly is 'serious care for softer skin.'"
Dara recommends twice daily application of a lactic acid rich moisturizer, like AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion, to gently exfoliate by sloughing away dead skin cells and to intensely hydrate—minimizing time spent on skin care and maximizing time for everything else. AmLactin® moisturizers are specially formulated with alpha hydroxy therapy to gently encourage natural skin cell renewal through exfoliation, leaving skin soft and silky.
"Dara always stresses the importance of recovery time as a competitor, and that includes rehydrating her skin," said Glenn MacEachern, Director of Product Marketing, Upsher-Smith Laboratories, Inc. "She is much like the women we hear from every day who are seeking a serious skin care product for their rough, dry skin challenges. We are delighted that she is an AmLactin® believer."
