Post-Workout Redness Solutions

4 facialist-approved beauty products to try now

Many athletes leave the gym red-faced and flushed because “working out heats up the body, and creates increased blood flow and inflammation,” explains Jessica Clark, lead esthetician at Equinox in New York City.

“I typically tell clients to go into the locker room and splash cold water on their face as soon as they’re done with their workout,” says Clark. This helps you feel cooler faster and removes some of the sweat residue, so that whatever you put on your face afterwards is actually absorbed.
