Prevent Face Sweating with 5 Simple Tricks 2020

Tuesday, 14 July 2020

Face and head sweating can be a nuisance, and to those who suffer from hyperdrosis it can be debilitating. From office meetings, to social events to playing sports, even the mildest of days can leave your face dripping. Thankfully, there is plenty of options that you can take to reduce facial sweating.

What Causes Excessive Head and Face Sweating?

Sweating from your face can be caused by completely natural reasons, including heat, your diet and your general health. Hyperhidrosis, a diagnosed medical condition which involves excessive and often extreme sweating has no known cause or cure, but as with normal sweating, there's plenty you can do to reduce its impact.

Below we've listed five of our top tricks for beating facial sweating. We start with our number one choice, Neat 3B Face Saver Gel.

Our Number One Tip: Neat 3B Face Saver Gel

2: Try Perspi Guard Facial Wipes

3. Try One of the Many Home Remedies

There's plenty of home remedies out there that can quickly cool you down. These include:

  • Cucumber Juice: Naturally cooling cucumber juice can be used to to beat facial sweating by soaking a cotton pad in cucumber juice and applying to the skin.
  • Ice Cubes:  A somewhat obvious one, but placing ice cubes in a soft cloth and rubbing on your face is a great way to to physically try and cool your face, keeping it youthful, tight and fresh.
  • Drink Buttermilk: Fresh buttermilk is packed with B12, calcium and potassium that can all help regulate temperature and keep your body at full capacity.

4. Change Your Diet

A balanced, non-spicy diet is ideal for reducing excessive sweating. 

Closely related to the previous point, a balanced diet will keep your body working the way it's supposed to, which includes stopping excessive sweating. We all know the basic principles of a healthy diet: avoid processed foods; eat plenty of fruits and veggies, lean protein and complex carbs; and keep your body well hydrated. There are, however, a few extra steps you can take that might help you with sweating excessively:

  • Sodium helps to control hydration levels in your body, so taking in either too much or too little sodium can cause sweating.
  • Spicy food is well known for causing breakouts of sweat. Though continuous excessive sweating is most likely not linked to eating a spicy meal every once in a while, try to avoid indulging in spicy foods too often.
  • Alcohol consumption will only make matters worse. Though not drinking alcohol will most likely not make you sweat any less, you might want to avoid giving your glands an excuse to produce even more sweat.
  • Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, lean proteins and complex carbs while keeping yourself well hydrated.

5. Wear Breathable Clothing

It may seem obvious, but clothes that trap sweat and increase body temperature will cause your face and head to break out in sweat. This mainly includes synthetic fabrics, such as polyester, rayon, denim, or spandex. Opt for these breathable alternatives instead:

  • Cotton
  • Linen
  • Chambray
  • Moisture-wicking fabrics
