Whether you’re a CrossFitter, a calli girl or queen of the treadmill, your routine can leave your looking somewhat flushed. Here are the face-saving beauty carry-alls that’ll help you up your face organisation game.

Optiphi Solar Spritz SPF 30 (R424)

It’s the one side effect that annoys all – “a healthy flush”. Heat escaping from your face is your body’s way of maintaining a normal body temperature and while it cannot be forever cured, it can be reduced with a cooling spritz. Available at Skin Miles.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Lotion SPF 25 (R140)

Moisturising is a non-negotiable part of any skincare routine. But if you’re short on time, you need a moisturiser that’s lightweight and that will settle in quickly. This cream absorbs easily into your skin and will protect against pollution and sun damage. Available at Foschini.
