Neutrogena has named Olympic gold medalist Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone brand ambassador.
The 24-year-old track and field athlete was unveiled as the skin care brand’s latest face in a campaign video.
“We have loved watching Sydney’s success over the years and cannot wait to continue to grow as a brand with her by our side,” said Natasha Haubrich, Head of Neutrogena Equity and Strategy.
“We feel confident that this partnership will help inspire consumers across generations.”
McLaughlin-Levrone is a 400m hurdle world record holder and the youngest athlete to qualify for the US track team since 1980.
She joins actress Jenna Ortega and R&B sister duo Chloe and Halle Bailey in Neutrogena’s ambassador family.
“My schedule can get pretty busy with training and meets, and so I do not always have the time to spend scrolling and testing out the latest in skin care and beauty trends,” said McLauglin-Levrone.
"Especially when, in reality, they may not be great for my skin.
“That is why I am so excited to be partnering with Neutrogena to help people everywhere learn what is really vital for their skin’s health.”
