As if we couldn’t adore the man any more than we already do, figure skater and all around Olympic phenomenon Adam Rippon has caused quite a stir in the Twittersphere this week. Ever since he arrived on the scene as an athlete to watch, fans have been wondering how the U.S. National Champion keeps his skin is such perfect condition. After much speculation, Adam relented and offered the world what looked like a simple tweet at first, sharing his recipe for flawless skin.
My nightly skin routine is pretty easy. Use a gentle cleanser, hydrating serum, check to make sure Stormy Daniels is raising enough money for her legal fees, and a night cream for glowing skin in the morning!

Ah, did you catch that? If you didn’t that’s okay – I’ll admit I got sidetracked looking up the best hydrating serums. But upon a second reading, it’s crystal clear that Adam still intends to use his voice to be an advocate for change, even after coming home from Pyeonchang. Of course, he’s no stranger to being blunt about his politics. During the Winter Olympics, he declined meeting with Vice President Pence, stating, “I would absolutely not go out of my way to meet somebody who I felt has gone out of their way to not only show that they aren’t a friend of a gay person”, and has recently been awarded the HRC Visibility Award.
Of course, along with the general excitement at the sheer simplicity of his skincare routine, a few Twitter users took the chance to make some lighthearted jokes, with some even winning a like or comment of approval from Rippon himself.
When do you exfoliate? Before or after the daily White House firings?

In the words of one Twitter user, Adam’s the “gift that keeps on giving.” We couldn’t agree more.
