Facial sweating can seem like one of the most difficult places on the body to treat. I should know, I suffered with it for a long time. It’s the most noticeable form of excessive sweating and the situation can make you feel pretty helpless. Your face is right there, out in the open, dripping with uncontrollable perspiration and no matter how many times you dab it away with a handkerchief, those embarrassing beads of sweat pop back up again.
Listen, I know what it’s like. I’ve been in your shoes. But, I’m happy to tell you that there IS a light at the end of the tunnel. Relief is on the way with the 3 effective facial sweating treatments I’m about to reveal to you. So, pay attention because these little sweat solutions are going to stop the face faucets for good!
Before we get started though, I just want to emphasize that with any of these treatments, you want to always watch out for irritation on your face. Even though these treatments are gentle, everyone’s body chemistry is different.
Also, as I’m sure you already know, you can’t just roll a strong deodorant onto your face (yes, like a fool, I tried it once). You’d completely break out in a rash, hives, dry patches and who knows what else. Plus, having deodorant residue on your face isn’t the most appealing look. For this reason, I’ve listed gentle, proven remedies below, that will start giving your results within minutes after application.
Let’s start with the first treatment!
1. Witch Hazel
Witch hazel extract can be bought at most health food stores, drugstores or grocery stores. It’s derived from the plant’s bark, twigs and leaves. I was totally unfamiliar with witch hazel when I first learned of this facial sweating remedy but let me tell you – it works wonders!
Witch hazel has natural astringent properties so it gently dries the skin and also inhibits inflammation. It dries up oily skin, reduces the appearance of pores and acts as a natural antiperspirant for you face. You NEED to try this.
What I love most about witch hazel is how mild it is on the skin. I actually reduces redness because of its anti-inflammatory properties! Start with a thin application layer and fall in love with this natural remedy for facial sweating.
2. Aloe Vera Juice
I suffered from hyperhidrosis which is why this treatment was just a bit less effective for me. That said, I’ve used aloe vera for my facial sweating before and I want to give you my completely honest review. Aloe vera works great as a temporary fix (prevents sweating for about 2 or 3 hours). My conclusion? If you have a hot date or an upcoming business meeting and you need to keep your complexion dry, aloe vera is a great quick fix.
3. Maxim Facial Wipes
Last but certainly not least is a sure fire winner. Maxim Facial Wipes are deodorant wipes made especially for facial sweating. Although, I’m not sure what chemicals inhibit the sweating, they act as a wonderful astringent for your face sweat and really keep you dry.
The wipes are made by a company in the UK. You can find them at CoradHealthCare.com. Anyhow, try the natural treatments listed above first. They’re cheaper, proven and don’t require a dependency on a specific manufacturer. If they fail to do the job for you, it’s time to give the Maxim Wipes a shot.
My Personal Favorite…
These three options are great. Personally, though, I use an astringent pad that combines the benefits of witch hazel and aloe vera into one. They’re made by a high end beauty company called Anthony’s. You can check them through the link below:
