We sat down with NHL player Alex Killorn of the Tampa Bay Lightning to discuss hockey and skincare. He was drafted in 2007 by the Tampa Bay Lightning. Killorn won back-to-back Stanley Cups with the Lightning in 2020 and 2021. Plus, he's a style tastemaker.
What was your path to pro hockey?
My career path has been different than most. Being from Montréal most of my friends and teammates played junior hockey in Canada. I decided to go the college route, starting at Deerfield Academy and then attending Harvard University. I was fortunate enough to sign an NHL contract my senior year while at Harvard.
Do you have any fitness or wellness practices that help you stay in the best shape possible?
Fitness and wellness are clearly very important for professional athletes. I have a strength routine in season which is different than the offseason. I sauna and cold tub religiously for recovery. I also do HRV training which helps with sleep and recovery.
Do you have a skincare routine? If so, what is it? When did you become attune to skincare?
My only skin care routine is to cleanse in the shower then to moisturize after.
Which Jackfir product is your favorite and why?
The Classic Daily Facial Moisturizer is my favorite. Especially with all the travel we do to different climates, my skin can get very dry. The moisturizer helps big time with that.
