For a less drastic approach, “mix witch hazel, a natural astringent, with half as much water and dip a makeup wipe into the combo,” says Charles Baker Strahan, celeb stylist for Herbal Essences. “Run this along your hairline after a workout to absorb oil and sebum. Follow with a dry shampoo.” Try: Herbal Essences Naked Volume Dry Shampoo ($5).
Hit snooze on the chimes tolling from your iPhone or haul your achy legs to a 6 a.m. CrossFit class? Choose sleep! According to several recent studies, a lack of rest can increase appetite and frustration and weaken your immune system. Net yourself an extra hour now, but plan to crash early so you can make it to the gym next time.
