Bump to follow. 

I sweat beyond easily, you’d think I was 400 pounds.

I also sweat ALOT in my face. I made sure that the first dance, toast, and whatever else was done before I really started to get down and sweat up a storm. Yes, by the end of the night I did have some sweaty pics, but the ones that were the most important were sweat free. 🙂 

I also would take breaks and stand in front of a fan that I had stored in another room.

Get yourself a good shine-free cleanser and oil free moisturizer, it will certainly help. Also get a good primer, and keep anything with “glow” or “shimmer” away from your face. It will help cut down on those shiny faced photos. I’d scratch the washcloths, if you’re meaning on your face, because you’ll essentially just wipe all of that makeup away, grab some starbucks napkins (no joke!) and gently blot your face from time to time to get rid of any oils and moisture. And get some Mitchum deodorant, the stick, not the gel, that stuff is AMAZING! If you’re REALLY worried about it, cortizone shots really help cut down on excessive sweating.

@imagine8204:  I actually have Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) and I get botox injections into my underarms. Sounds painful as heck, but it’s not and it works great! I actually sweat like a normal human being now. 

Before I started on Botox, I used to use perscription strength anti-persperants. The Secret Clinical strength stuff is pretty good. I used Certain Dri for a while and really liked it. The key is, look for anti-persperants, NOT deoderants! Even try men’s stuff because women’s stuff is more about smelling pretty than fighting sweat.

Ahhh mens deodorant is the best and the scents these days could really go either way 🙂

@imagine8204:  Have you ever used a prescription anti-perspirant like DrySol or CertainDri? You can get a prescription from your doc (I’ve had it prescribed by a pediatrician, a gyno, a dermatologist, pretty much anyone will give it to you) and it keeps your underarms dry for like a week! I have put it on my forehead before for important events where I’d be dancing and didn’t have any irritation or redness or anything and it worked great!

@imagine8204:  Well, it’s not really deoderant at all… it’s a prescription and it’s completely liquid in a bottle with a thing on the top that you press onto your skin and then you don’t sweat for the next seven days, and then you reapply once a week. So it’s not like putting deoderant on your face haha.

Agreed on the Mitchum! It is all I use. Nothing else is strong enough. I am also really nervous about being sweaty. I have told my bridesmaids that I want them all carrying blotting papers (I also have oily skin, ugh). 

I have heard about some brides actually having fans under their sweetheart table (or at your seat if you aren’t doing sweetheart) to try to get some air to them. I also find that I sweat more if I am at all dehydrated so usually drinking some water will cool me down drastically. As a last resort, have someone park their car near the reception hall and go sit in it for some much needed air conditioning every once in awhile!

CertainDry has worked wonders on my underarms – no more sweat stains! It’s a roll-on clear liquid, no smell or anything, that you put on at night before bed. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work on your forehead.

Odaban works wonders. I don’t think you’re actually meant to use it on your face, but I do and it’s amazing. Sometimes it makes my face a bit red, but I just use extra concealor and foundation to cover it up. It’s such a novelty to be able to actually wear make up without it sweating off within the hour, or looking chalky from wearing so much powder to reduce the sweating.

 

I just need to find something that works on hair. My hair can literally look shower-wet or at the least massively frizzy just by walking into a warmer room.

@imagine8204: I had hyperydrosis like @PacificMrs: has. I had an operation 10 years ago that helped sort it out as I got mainly in my hands. I suggest perhaps visit your doctor to explain the symptoms to see if it’s that or not.
