Former World No. 1 tennis star Venus Williams has teamed up with Credo Beauty — a popular retailer for clean, natural beauty brands — for her first beauty line: EleVen by Venus x Credo. Williams is working with Credo Beauty to launch a clean mineral sunscreen.
As per Yahoo, the seven-time Grand Slam singles champion says, "Credo is the leader in clean beauty. It really was just the perfect partner for EleVen to launch a clean mineral sunscreen. "I was already using so many of the brands that were on their website and in their stores.
I came in as a fan [before] we started to partner together." The new collection comes under her EleVen by Venus Williams business empire, under which she also has her own range of athletic-wear brand. "Living your life [to] 11 means living a life with no regrets.
You've given every single bit of yourself, and you've reached this level that you never thought you could. It doesn't mean that you won't have some failures every so often, but you learn from those and you just reach for the stars." Venus says she has always been into skin protection - since she is out in the sun for so many hours as a result of playing tennis.
"People always come to me with their skin issues. I love it, though. When I was younger, I was wild and too free, and I took it for granted that I had great skin. But that is not the case now. I am covered from head to toe when I'm outside: long sleeves, long pants, and sunscreen.
I try to protect my skin as much as I can."
