Hydration: Hydration can help, but the red face is increased blood flow and not likley to go away. I bet it has been that way for you for as long as you can remember. The dry mouth is the breathing and panting that is done when you work out. Fluids can keep you cooler and less dry but not likley to relieve those symptoms completely.
