For women's professional tennis player Sloane Stephens, being on the go is just part of the job. Her 2023 season kicked off in Australia in January before she jetted over to Mexico in late February. Now, she's gearing up for Indian Wells next week, the Miami Open and the premier event—the US open.

"It's eventful," Stephens says in relation to her upcoming season schedule, which also includes her birthday on March 20.

The constant air travel, and just being on the move in general, can wreak havoc not only on your skin, but on your fitness routine as well. As a pro athlete, staying in shape is a must, so Stephens is always finding ways to get her workouts in on the road.

"Working out is my job, so it's not always as fun as just going to the gym and following that with the sauna. I would love that. But, on the road, anything to keep my body moving is good—running on the treadmill or going for a light 30-minute run," shares the tennis pro. "I even find things I can do in my hotel room like ab routines, lunges and squats. Things you really don't have to put a lot of thought into but get the blood flowing."

Stephens has always been passionate about her skin and implementing healthy routines to keep it glowing. When traveling for her matches, she says that the key to combating the harshness of dry air on planes is hydration.

"I definitely wear sunscreen all the time. I'm just mortified about getting sunburn or even wind burn. I've made it my life's work to make sure I'm always wearing it. Taking care of my skin is very important to me," reveals Stephens. "With the extreme temperature changes and my body having to adapt between dry conditions or even cold, I'm very conscious of what I'm putting in and on my body. I also make sure that I'm hydrating four times more than normal when on the go."

Keeping things consistent with the products she uses, she admits that her trusted sunscreen option is Neutrogena's spray-on sunscreen, with at least an SPF of 70 or more.

Beyond the courts, the tennis pro shares that she enjoys simple ways to relax and decompress.

"I really like just going to get my nails done with my mom," she says. "My husband is a gadget person, and we have a hyperbaric chamber in our house. It's the best thing ever. I also love to go to the spa and get massages, too. It's so different from getting the massages in the training room at a tournament. It's just more relaxing."
