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!

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.

Aloe Vera Juice – This is a more watered down version of the popular aloe vera sold as a moisturizer. When applied to the skin, aloe vera has a nice cooling effect. This makes it particularly useful during warmer seasons like summer or spring. However, if your excessive sweating is triggered not by temperature but by hyperhidrosis (a condition of excessive sweating not matter what temperature it is), you may find your results to be more short term.

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 conclusionc 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.

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. I’m sure you can find them online if you just search around a bit. 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.

    • Go to the doctor and discuss options with them as you may need a sypathectomy. This can be done as a minimally invasive operation (endoscopically)
      Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS) is a surgical procedure where certain portions of the sympathetic nerve trunk are burned, severed, removed or clamped. ETS is used to treat hyperhidrosis, facial blushing, social phobia, Raynaud’s disease and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. By far the most common complaint treated with ETS is palmar hyperhidrosis, or “sweaty palms”.

      Sympathectomy refers to the intentional destruction of tissue anywhere in either of the two sympathetic trunks, long chains of nerve ganglia lying along either side of the spine. Each trunk is broadly divided into three regions: cervical (up by the neck), thoracic (in the chest) and lumbar (in the lower back). The most common area targeted in sympathectomy is the upper thoracic region, that part of the sympathetic chain lying between the first and fifth thoracic ribs.


  2. Facial Sweating. Please help?
    Please help. I am a male in my teen years, and I sweat a lot, and I mean A LOT on my face. It may be morning, and the sun is barely coming out, but I will be drenched. If i move at a pace faster than a walk, I start sweating almost immediately. It’s genetics. Both of my parents are huge sweaters, and my brother, in college, too. I need some help with this. Does anybody recommend treatments, or products?


    • do you have long hair if you do maybe think about getting a hair cut, or style your hair so it doesn’t cover your face or forehead, wear lighter clothing, have been eating unhealthily recently, causes your body to be out of shape and gets rid of excess salts that you have ingested.


  3. Can Lexapro cure sweating associated/triggered with high anxiety situations ?
    I suffer from what has been diagnosed as a combination of hyperhydosis (specific to the facial region) and anxiety which triggers the facial sweating. For the past 15 years I have suffered from excessive facial sweating when in social settings and or high anxiety situations i.e. speaking in front of a group, conducting presentations etc. As you may or may not know, this can be extremely embarassing and hamper both your personal and professional life. I have tried almost everything….beta blockers, anti-depressants, topical solutions, xanax etc.

    Recently, I was told the Lexapro can be used to treat anxiety, and even though that night sweating IS a side effect, if you take it consistantly for 4-6 weeks, sweating will actual disappear.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated as I’m desparate for treatment. I have a job where I must speak/present often, and I can’t afford another sweaty presentaion!
