Facial Sweat


I have hyperhydrosis all over my body but I worry the most about the face. Im in my first year in college and it been affecting my social life.
I started using Drysol that i bought a few days ago but some of my skin stated peeling off.
What tools do have to help with facial sweat?

P.S. Thanks for the email about sweat-cycle it was helpful to me.

    Hi Marlon,

    I’m glad you enjoyed the email about the sweat-cycle. I hope you start implementing some of the changes I recommended in it.

    1. Push your limits. Do some things that scare you. Know that you’re going to sweat while you’re doing it. Know that you may be embarrassed. Do it anyway. The more you push your limits, the further out your limits go. After a while, things that used to scare you poop-less, will be a walk in the park. The reason this works for facial sweat is because you sweat more when your stressed. If you push your limits frequently, it will take an extraordinary situation to stress you out.

    2. Work your social skills independently. If facial sweating is effecting your social life, instead of working on your facial sweating, work on your social skills. There are certain types of people that others like to be around. They’re positive, and they’re interested in those around them. They don’t think so much about themselves, but rather think about others’. There’s a popular quote by Dale Carnegie that says, “You can win more friends in two hours by being interested in other people than you could in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.” Read Dale Carnegie’s “How To Win Friends and Influence People.”

    3. Dilute the Drysol. If the Drysol makes your face peel, it’s because it’s irritating your face. Mix one part Drysol and one part water before putting it on your face. Either that, or get an over-the-counter antiperspirant and use it on your face. (Click on “Antiperspirants” and read the best way to apply antiperspirants.)

    4. Work out! Start lifting heavy weights. I’m sure there’s a gym at your school. Go there with a friend and lift heavy. Start with bench press. Do a warm-up set with light weight until it burns a little. Then do a second set of 6 repetitions with 60-70% of your body weight. So if you weigh 150 pounds, use about 110 pounds, or a 35 pound weight on each side. I’ll be writing more about good weight-lifting techniques soon. But lifting weights will strengthen your metabolism, make you feel better, and look better. This improves your self-esteem at the same time as it benefits your body.

    Do all four of these things, and see what happens after a few weeks. : )
