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.

Eau Thermale Avène Micellar Lotion (R330)
