Must-have face products for gym queens who are in a hurry


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 carryalls to restore your skin to normal post workout.

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 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.

Solal Skin Cleanser (R185)

Want a cleanser that doesn’t require you to stand at the sink too long? This doubles as a face- and eye-make-up remover, but is also a wash that will hydrate and plump the skin leaving it supple and healthy-looking. Available at Dis-chem.

Eau Thermale Avène Micellar Lotion (R330) 

For those time-strapped and “less motivated” people, micellar waters are a magical product because they’re a no rinse treatment that gently eliminates impurities. It cleanses, regulates sebum and soothes – thanks to the mineral-rich thermal spring water. Available at Clicks.

Eucerin CC Sun Cream Tinted SPF 50+ (R226)  

Never leave the house without sunscreen. Not only will it help protect you against skin cancer, it’ll also slow down the signs of ageing. Available at Clicks.
