After watching last night's thrilling qualifying round, needless to say we're more excited than ever to watch the U.S. women's gymnastics dream team dominate in the all-around finals on Tuesday and Thursday. But aside from the jaw-dropping physical prowess of Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian, and Laurie Hernandez, we as beauty editors also have to wonder what products these incredible athletes use to keep their hair and makeup on lock while high-flying through the air and pushing their bodies to unimaginable limits—not to mention the supplements they knock back to help keep their muscles in top form. (We could all stand to apply a little Olympic magic to our own lives, right?)
So which beauty item does Biles keep in her gym bag at all times? What's Raisman's go-to hair spray? Which mascara is certified sweat-proof by Douglas herself? As you gear up to watch the competition continue, keep reading for the answers.
Gabby Douglas is a huge fan of this smoothing cream, which helps prevent breakage in addition to keeping flyaways at bay.
As we probably could have guessed, virtually every member of Team USA cops to having an extensive supply of bobby pins in her bag at all times.
Sweating while wearing so much makeup is undoubtedly harsh on skin, but Aly Raisman says she swears by Revision's products to keep her complexion looking fresh.
Simone Biles says that she likes to recover from a long day of practice by refueling with one of Core Power's protein-packed shakes.
"I always have to have my Covergirl mascara," Douglas tells W. "And I use waterproof now because at trials I didn’t use waterproof so when I was crying my eyes were burning."
