Sweaty face

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to manage a sweaty face? On warm days my face gets really sweaty even before I leave the house. By the time I turn up at my destination it's a bit embarrassing. Post-pregnancy I thought it might be hormonal but my baby is 21months now.
I'm looking for something either to minimise it or to blot it. i usually use a tissue but there's a risk of having bits of tissue left on my face as they come apart so easily. Tia

I feel your pain as I not only turn into a dripping mess but turn a lovely shade of beetroot too😡
I am nearly 50 so suspect some of the problem is hormonal too but I have always been prone to blushing, I do find Clinique anti redness solution followed by bare minerals powder can help a bit

i've always been a blusher too. I'm sure my face is red too but I daren't look in a mirror!

I will look into your recommendations. Thank you.

I've heard cigarette rolling papers are good for face blotting, they absorb the oils and less likely of breaking like a tissue.

I use an anti shine moisturiser by LRP

And blotting papers from super drug - clean and clear I think they are. I had the dermalogica ones but didn't get in with them.

For some people a sweaty face and head might also be linked to lack to vit D. Probably no harm in asking for a blood test from your GP if you think that might be an issue for you, it's easily sorted out.
