Johnny Weir Announces Forthcoming Skin Care Line With Onsen Secret

Newswire: Olympian figure skater Johnny Weir announced Monday morning via a video posted to his Facebook page that he will be collaborating with Onsen Secret to create his own skin care line. The video, featuring Johnny in a bathtub, quickly received over 35,000 views in just under a few hours.

“If you follow me, you probably already know that I love Japan and I love skin care,” Weir states in the video. “Several months ago, I fell in love with this company called Onsen, which is a skin care company that utilizes the restorative, lovely properties of Japanese mineral waters from the Onsen hot springs.”

The two-time Olympian and three-time US national champion concluded, “When I got home from Japan I decided I wanted a bigger role. I wanted to know what makes Onsen so great. So next week I’m going to go to LA to meet with their scientists in their laboratory. I’m going to go through their creams and I’m going to start preparing for my own line.”

Johnny will be taking his fans on this journey with him, through a series of interactive posts on both his and Onsen’s Facebook pages. Through these posts, Johnny will listen to fan feedback on what they want most from a skin care line.

In the meantime, Johnny is recommending all his fans try Onsen’s unique brand of skin care. “The Men’s line is great!” he promises. “My brother, my lovers, my father – everyone loves it!”

Onsen’s Facebook page claims its mission is “to put the ancient healing powers of the Onsen Japanese Hot Springs in the palm of your hands,” by using this mineral-rich water in all of their products. Their wide variety of products can be found online at OnsenSecret.com.

VIDEO — How Tara Lipinski Surprised BFF ‘Bridesman’ Johnny Weir on Her Wedding Day

People: Tara Lipinski sure knows how to make a “bridesman” feel special.

On her wedding day, the former Olympic figure skater treated collaborator and best friend Johnny Weir, a two-time Olympic figure skater, to an assortment of special gifts.

“Despite it being Tara and Todd’s day, she found so many ways to surprise me!” Weir, 32, told PEOPLE shortly after Lipinski tied the knot with sports producer Todd Kapostasy in Charleston on June 24. “Tara really thought of everyone for her wedding and reception. She wanted everyone to have the best night of their lives.”

The bride, who has been besties with Weir for four years, designed a glittering boutonniere to match his custom Swarovski crystal-studded Hermès shoes — which she gave him ahead of her nuptials.

“My special flower made me so happy,” gushed Weir, who donned a soft blue Andrew Morrison suit with a bustle to walk down the aisle. “The fact that we get to work together, have adventures and laugh the whole way through it is such a special gift that I never take for granted!”
