DON’T Wear waterproof foundation. These typically contain silicones and waxes, which can clog pores, exacerbating acne, says Dr. Nowell Solish, a cosmetic dermatologist at Toronto’s Cosmetic Dermatology.

Marathonista Tinted Moisturizer ($19, at drugstores and mass-market retailers) contains pigments treated with moisturizing jojoba esters, so a sweaty face doesn’t equal dripping makeup. Also, try Arrow’s Revive Cooling Cheek Tint ($24, at birchbox.ca until the end of April); its water-based gel formula hydrates and cools skin.
