While many professional athletes opt for a retirement career in sportscasting, Australian champion swimmer Michael Klim hung up his bathing suit to start his own beauty business, Milk. Why beauty? “Probably because I’m quite vain,” jokes the 31-year-old.
But the real story behind Milk, his nascent men’s skin care line, came about more naturally. “Australia has a harsh environment and combined with being in the chlorinated pool — I was always on the lookout for products that could nourish my skin,” he says. When Klim retired two years ago, his wife Lindy encouraged him to make his idea a reality. To nail down the right formulas, he gave samples to his mates — a bunch of Aussie champion swimmers — until they were perfect.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
