Russian-born American former artistic gymnast Nastia Liukin recently shared a black-and-white picture of herself without makeup, showing off her youthful good looks.


A series of photographs taken from Nastia Liukin's vacation in Hawaii was posted to Instagram on April 5. While she isn't wearing makeup in one photo, the 31-year-old looks just as gorgeous.

It's clear that Liukin, a five-time Olympic medalist and the 2008 Olympic All-Around champion, can really bring her flawless beauty to another level without looking overdone.

In the black-and-white pic, she is seen beaming happily as she poses for the camera displaying her toned figure. In another snap, Liukin wears a tiger-print swimsuit, along with a giant straw hat.

The star continued her photo-heavy update with a polka-dot bikini bottom shot, as well as a picture showing a freeing moment as she floated on her back in ocean water.


"Reminiscing on life and trips like this one - with a group of the most incredibly driven, kind hearted, caring, loving, inspiring babes I'm so lucky to have in my life [sic]," Liukin wrote in the caption.


Almost immediately, her post accumulated more than 29,000 likes on Instagram. In the comments section, many of her fans professed their admiration for her as well.

At the age of 22, Liukin retired from gymnastics after winning the All-Around title at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. However, she goes on to make her mark in many different areas of the gymnastics world.

At the time, she said something which had been a dream is on its way.


Now, Liukin has started a tech platform to create a greater sense of empowerment for female athletes by connecting them with their mentors, coaches, college recruiters, nutritionists, and Olympian peers.

Liukin launched her influencer business with the support of the faithful following she has grown over the last decade, leading to collaborations with world-leading brands.

During an interview published in Forbes in 2019, Liukin said she was influenced in her business life by all her gymnastics experiences. According to her, it's essential to do something for oneself.


In March, Liukin traveled to Palm Springs, CA, making her way to Joshua Tree and finishing at a luxury boutique hotel in Laguna Beach. At the time, she said something which had been a dream is on its way.

In days leading up to that announcement, Liukin announced she would soon be launching yet another celery-based product. With the brand, she already retails a $55 Celery Green Cream.


In 2019, Liukin was chosen to be the godmother to the child of her former U.S. Olympic women's gymnastics teammate, Shawn Johnson. The two athletes have known each other for many years.

They suffered the consequence of feud rumors that erupted after the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. But in 2018, Liukin clarified that there was never a specific episode that caused their friendship to end.
