How Soccer Star Hope Solo Is Prepping for the Olympics ... Off the Field

“I have a motto that’s ‘Look Good, Feel Good, Play Good,’” Hope Solo tells PEOPLE. But she admits that sometimes, she hasn’t been able to live up to those words.

“Over the last 10 years I’ve really struggled with my skin in major soccer tournaments — the Olympics, World Cups,” she says. “That’s in front of millions of viewers. And I still to this day have to sign autographs on some of the older pictures where I have some not-so-great-looking skin. I get pretty insecure about that.”

Blaming her constant travels and sweaty practices for her breakouts, the soccer star says she didn’t realize she was struggling with sensitive skin. “I never used that terminology,” she explains. “I knew that my skin broke out, I knew that it would sting and get redness depending on what products I used, but I didn’t know that meant it was sensitive.”

To take care of her complexion, the Vogue cover girl recently partnered with Simple Skincare, a line dedicated to sensitive skin. “There aren’t any dyes or harsh chemicals or perfumes, which have irritated my skin in the past,” Solo explains.

She swears by the brand’s cleansing wipes and toner, and particularly loves the Revitalizing Eye Roll-on. “It makes you feel so refreshed,” she says.

And though she’ll still wear a bit of makeup on the field — “I use my Rosebud Salve lip balm, open my eyes with some mascara,” she says — the soccer star is ready to face the world this summer. “For the first time in my long history, in a major tournament, I’m not going to have to worry about my skin on the field,” she says. “So I’m excited.”
