It is actually very easy for the face and head to sweat because there are so many pores. Plus there could well be a valid reason for this sweating, for instance the menopause and those dreaded hot flashes. The bane of so many women’s lives.
The worst thing about facial sweating is that it is usually accompanied by scalp sweating. Also with your face being so on view, it is difficult to hide the fact that you are sweating like mad.
If you are a female experiencing this excessive facial sweating then I have a suggestion about make-up – don’t use it. Stop using any creams which have a lot of oil in them because they appear to make a person sweat more.
You should always have a handkerchief or tissues with you to wipe your face dry when necessary. Putting a little vinegar on your handkerchief is very useful for closing up the pores when you are wiping your face dry.
A light dusting of talcum powder on the face can give temporary respite from the sweating. It will soak up excess moisture, but as I said, this is only temporary and you would need to re-apply periodically. Avoid your eyes, nose and mouth.
There are special antiperspirant gels available specifically for your face. The idea is to apply a thin coating to your face just before you go out. You should be able to find them in your local stores, but if not you could look on eBay or Amazon for more information as to where they are available.
You must always drink plenty of water and this is not just because of thirst but because it is extremely important to keep your body hydrated, plus your skin needs to be moisturized.
You probably think that taking more water in is providing more scope for sweating. You would be wrong to think this, drinking plenty of water will definitely work to help you stop sweating, face area particularly.
Keep your consumption of alcohol and fizzy drinks to a minimum as they can affect your spleen.
A good diet is always most important, not only does this help with maintaining a good body weight, it makes you feel better totally. Carrying excess weight can be one of the conditions which makes your body excrete too much sweat.
Facial sweating can also occur because of some foods you eat. Have you ever been enjoying a great Indian meal only to find that you are sweating like a pig? Spicy food, although delicious, is sometimes the cause of this facial sweating.
I can recommend herbs that you could use to stop a sweating face naturally, and these herbs being quite natural should not produce any side effects.
Valerian Root – this is widely used to treat stress, anxiety and nervousness. It can also help with sleep disorders, and reduce any headaches you may suffer. Valerian works to relax the nervous system which will in turn reduce any stress [often the cause of excessive sweating].
Sage Tea – this is a great natural and effective way to stop sweating. You only need to drink one glass a day, but you need a little patience to wait for it to start taking effect, but when it does, you will be impressed with the results. It works by relaxing overactive sweat glands.
Astragalus – this herb helps to stimulate the immune system and also to improve cardiovascular health. It is a great help in getting rid of excessive sweating, and this includes night sweats. This should be available over the counter at health food stores.
Herbs are very reliable in their performance, after all, would people have used them for centuries if they were worse than useless? No, they wouldn’t!
If you need to stop sweating face, in fact any area on your body then you can find any number of suggested treatments. The main point to consider is what is right for you. You may need to go with ‘trial and error’ to find the treatment[s] which are right for you.
