Nothing feels more invigorating than an effective workout at the gym, but if you’re prone to a beetroot like complexion at the end, we have just the the trick (or tricks) to help you beat the scarlet hue.


During exercise, your body and muscles generate energy causing the blood vessels in your skin to dilate, which allows the heat to escape through the skin to maintain a normal body temperature – hence the redness. Follow the tips below for a healthy glow with reduced redness.


Spray It

During exercise try and keep your body temperature low and use cooling spray like Oskia’s mist that is infused with a potent blend of vitamins, this formula refreshes, calms and detoxifies, as well as plumps and hydrates.


Moisture With Benefits


Switch your daily moisturizer to a cream designed for sensitive skin and select ingredients like thermal spring water, zinc or licorice extract that gives complexion more resilience. KORA Organics by Miranda Kerr’s soothing moisturizer contains nourishing primrose oil, pomegranate and chamomile for maximum antioxidant protection.



Glycolic acid acts as a gentle chemical exfoliant, removing the top layer of dead skin cells to leave skin smooth and clean. It is best used with a moisturizer and once a week will do a trick to keep the redness at bay. Elizabeth Arden’s Skin Illuminating Retexturizing Pads gently works the outer layers of the skin, clearing away excess dirt and promoting renewal.
