After poring over every, well, pore on the men of the U.S. Olympic Swim Team the past few days, we've been reminded that swimmers are likely smoother than anything you can find on the dance floor at Tiger Heat.
So, in the age of Scruff—when some of us may have forgotten how to depilate without severe repercussions—what's the guys' secret?
Luckily, gorgeous U.S. Olympian Ricky Berens (known for letting things slip out—link NSFW) has spilled the beans.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Ricky reveals that women's shaving cream is the go-to trick for men hoping to go for that smooth swimmer's look.
I’m sure different swimmers use different tactics, but how do you get rid of all that aerodynamic-sapping hair?
Women’s shaving cream. We always just shave. Once or twice a year. No special waxes or anything. We do our own thing. We’ve always heard that the women’s extra-hydrating is best for us, because it makes our skin soft, instead of men’s shaving cream, because that’s for the face.
Does soft skin have some aerodynamic advantage?!?
No, it’s just for soft skin. The chlorine in the pools just kills your skin.
Thanks for the tip, Ricky! Now on to the next bit of advice: how do we get a booty like yours (see above NSFW link)?
