I don't use anything because whatever i use ends up running into my eyes and massively stinging (apart from sun cream - not only does that sting but it also makes my eyes swell up!). I hate hot weather because of the sweating.
I do not suffer from a sweaty face but I read a book written by a make up artist who suggested skipping moisturizer and using a oil free primer for oily skin everyday! Not sure if this works but it could be worth a try. Also if you are oily do not use products that will strip the oil as your skin will only produce more to compensate for it!
I have the same problem, OP. My skinny is good and not at all oily and I have daytime moisturisers and serums I'm very happy with except in hot, humid weather, when I suffer from sweaty face. That not only looks most unappealing in itself but also makes my fringe all damp and kinky, thus destroying my, and my hairdresser's, attempts at stylishness.
It's OK when I'm staying somewhere with AC because I put my moisturiser and sunblock on while my face is still cool. But my bedroom at home doesn't have AC!
Would love to know if anyone has found any product or treatment which helps.
Yup, that's me too and I also don't wear makeup- just concealer and lipstick usually.
I used to wash face in the shower and slap in Aveeno (or recently La Roche Posay) moisturiser.
However, after all the buzz, I bought some The Ordinary products. I've been using the LRP Hydraphase serum (TO also has HA serum, Caffeine Solution (for puffy eyes and dark circles) and Buffet for a week. Most days, I've found that I don't even need moisturiser after putting on these products - my skin feels amazingly soft and not dry at all. (I think now that skin was dehydrated rather than dry).
Your skin doesn't have that greasy feeling afterwards and that feeling of being sweaty underneath, IYSWIM, really recommend.
If the sweating is a real problem it could be worth chatting to the doc about it. I had AWFUL facial and scalp sweating for a couple of years and was prescribed some cream for facial hyperhydrosis. Probably not the best long term skincare but after a few weeks of it my sweating had stopped and hasn't returned. Life changing!!
