    Any tips for reducing facial perspiration please?

    Okay, this may not be ladylike, but in the current hot weather, my face perspires. It doesn't help that I'm of " a certain age." I'd appreciate any tips that help reduce the problem.

    I don't think you can really reduce how much you perspire. But I really recommend you trying some clay facial masks- it keeps my face feeling dry throughout the day. And it's surprisingly cheap, just go to amazon and look for clay powder. I recommend either French Green Clay powder (you mix this with water to make your mask) or Calcium Benotite Clay (you mix this with Apple Cider Vinegar for the best results, water is okay too). It's about $6-$10 for 2 pounds of clay.
    try:

    I'm assuming you don't want botox in your face. I know people get botox injections in their arm pits to reduce sweat. But I left a link below if you want to read more about it:

    Everyone seems to perspire in different areas but to help cope with this the most important thing is to cool you body. You could try carrying a small fan around which may help but the most important thing is to keep hydrated, avoiding sodas and anything with caffeine in.

    Some cultures believe that actually having a hot drink in hot weather helps cool your inner temperature of your body as the hypothalamus (temperature regulator inside) has to work less to get your body to a certain temperature. I get hot quite easily too and sometimes it's hard to fight genetics but then I don't feel the cold much at all.

    Careful with any perfumes as well as if they contain alcohol which dries the skin out and can make your face more prone to perspiration.
