There are a lot of chemicals in deodorant/antiperspirant that are not good for you. Your body tolerates them because your armpits are pretty small and there’s not a lot of capillaries there, so you don’t get a very big dose, but your face is a lot bigger, and a lot better at absorbing things. I would definitely read and research every ingredient for potential hazards, and even then I wouldn’t do this very often (if at all). This stuff is designed to go under your arms and not on your face for a reason!

I never thought of this….Brilliant!!

I came back to comment and say that we are running errands in pretty intense heat.Lifting, carrying the baby, stairs… Not a single drop of sweat. I can’t comment on the chemicals because I simply haven’t done ANY research on that. But I have not a single bit of sweat.
I will say that I have tried virtually every product out there for this. Nothing else has worked. I tried the Skindinavia products, MUFE products, Urban Decay All Nighter. I actually swear by Urban Decay All Nighter at any other point during the year. This is an absolute last resort for me.
I do want to note that I don’t have sensitive skin. I have really resilient skin, actually. I’m not sure how sensitive skin would handle this. I am going to try this again tomorrow and then leave my skin alone for the rest of the week.
I love this so much so far. Couldn’t be happier. 🙂 I still look like my makeup is freshly applied. I used Mitchium gel for sensitive skin. Not sure if that matters much 🙂

Hmmm…I thought I figured something out. I’m nit the only one. I use CertainDri on my forehead along my hairline. With bangs, I can’t stand my hair sticking to a sweaty forehead.
It works though I wouldn’t use it around eyes.

I have a sweating problem and use prescription antiperspirent (hyperclear). When my doctor was prescribing it she specifically asked if I wanted to use it for my face/neck/back or arm pits. I usually only use it for my arm pits but I did try it on my forehead about a week ago because of the heat and it worked great. I have super sensitive skin so it was a real risk but it worked out and I would do it again. Just make sure you read all the ingredients on your deodarent. 🙂

So, I used it 2 days in a row and I am a believer. I haven’t had a reaction at all(knock on wood) and my pores actually seem smaller, oddly enough. I don’t know why it tightened my pores but I’ll take it 🙂 Anyway, I’ll update again if I break out at all between now and a week from now. Otherwise, I’ll just end with letting you know that I am really pleased and my makeup held up better than ever before. It was also a fantastic primer 🙂

I would never put deodorant on my face…not because it sounds weird but those are chemicals you do NOT want all up in your face…it’s bad enough we use the stuff near our lymphnodes!
To get flawless makeup…try a L’Oreal Photo Ready Primer…that’s something I use ontop of my collegen elastin face lotion. I look FLAWLESS with just that!

There’s these solid crystal antiperspirant sticks that are awesome. They’re even stronger than regular deoderant. (Remember, deoderant makes your sweat stink less. Antiperspirant makes you sweat less.) You can get them at most drug stores, but you need to ask your pharmacist sometimes. They’re solid little sticks, and you wet the end with water. Then you would (normally) put them under your armpits.
I’ve tried them on my face, they work amazingly. And they won’t leave the same film that deoderant does. I don’t do this every day (obviously), but I’ve done it for a few summer weddings that I’ve attended. It dries clear and smooth, so you can even put primer on top of it. My makeup wasn’t moving until I washed it off.
Also, spray your face with a spritz of witch hazel on top of your setting powder. It’s an awesome setting spray that I learned about when I went to MUA school 4 years ago.

I have a friend who mixes perparation H with moisturizer and uses it as a primer. She used to work dor Estee Lauder so she knows her shit with make up. There are a lot of things like his that work for make up. I like to spray my made up face with a flexible hold hairspray. It keeps it from fading as fast.

Awesome tip!!! This is a slightly different situation, but for oily skin, using a tiny bit of Philip’s Milk of Magnesia will keep your skin looking matte ALL DAY. I used it all summer without any breakouts. 🙂

Some of you must have skin of steel! Most of the stuff suggested here makes me break out in a rash, no way would I put it on my face!
