Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez just landed a beauty contract and it’s no surprise what for

The 2016 Olympics may be over, but we’re still going to be seeing a lot more of the teen athletes that slayed our TV screens this summer.

Meet Laurie Hernandez – the youngest member of the US gymnastics team – who made a name for herself not only because of her incredible talent, but that huge smile that brightens up a room.


Nicknamed the ‘human emoji’, it’s no surprise that the 16 year old has landed herself a beauty contract as ambassador for Crest – yep, the toothpaste brand.

“When you’re given the opportunity of a lifetime to perform on the world’s biggest stage, smiling with confidence for your family and supporters is part of every routine,” explains Laurie.

Here are a few photos which we think prove she’s the perfect match for the brand (and that she literally doesn’t stop smiling ever):

We’re already off to buy 50 tubes of toothpaste if it’s gonna give us a smile like that tbh.
