How to NOT sweat your makeup off...

post #1 of 59
Thread Starter 
Have you ever watched a really energetic performance and wondered..."Why isn't that Girls face melted off?" I know I have. Here's a little insider trick for you all.....

Apparently there is a whole underground range of products designed to keep your face from sweating?? Who knew? This one is called Pro Face and it blocks sweat from forming. Basically a face anti-perspirant. It contains aluminum chlorohydrate and is used by many performers to keep their faces intact during intense activity. I also found this version...

This one is a gel to use before makeup. Both products can be irritating and should be spot tested before use.

If you need to be Hot, but don't want to look Hot....this might be for you.

WOW I want some to put on the bridge of my nose b/c for some reason when I'm wearing my sunglasses and it's really hot the area of my nose that the middle of my shades touches gets really sweaty.

Re: How to NOT sweat your makeup off...

this is a funny thread for me, my friends used to tease me that i didnt have sweat glands, because everytime we'd go partying i would be the only one with a completly dry face and full face makeup by 3:am!!! this after dancing up a storm in a hot club mind you. it's really weird but of course if i drink lots of water and cut out sodas i will sweat all around my hairline but still not enough for my makeup to smear off. and yes i have a dry complexion!! lol!!

Re: How to NOT sweat your makeup off...

In my country where it's humid and hot, the moment I walk for 5 to 10 mins on the streets, i will start sweating and my make up will start to melt...Grrr.

This product sounds good. Is it available in other countries?

You can buy it online.

Actually dancing would be the only reason I would wear it. I look a mess when I go out. I am one of the few girls that really get down dancing, I don't do that cute sexy grind stuff. I'm a hardcore dance-aholic. I have a DJ who calls me his mascot...haah.

Yeah....I get crazy. But one of my Best Friends is crazier, she dances so big she hits people and elbows them and almost puts their eyes out with her "walk like an egyptian" hands. I love going with her because she clears a crowd better than anyone!

Re: How to NOT sweat your makeup off...

I don't think this would be of much use to me as I sweat more from my scalp than from the face. It wouldn't prevent the sweat rolling down my face from my scalp from ruining my makeup. So far, a sealant like Ben Nye Final Seal over makeup in combination with a face primer under makeup seems to be my most effective makeup preservation technique.

omg, i can imagine !!

i'm the contrary, i'm a very bad dancer (though i'm not as dangerous as your friend ) so usually i'm the one who stays on a chair, guarding the bags (lol, sometimes i wanna see what my friends carry with them niark niark).

Re: How to NOT sweat your makeup off...

Not that this isn't cool, but the aluminum is in deodorant too and that's one of the key ingredients that makes my pits irritated and dark. Can't imagine what it'd do to my face.

Re: How to NOT sweat your makeup off...

I'd like to try this out. I live in Sunny Florida where its ALWAYS hot. My only concern would be if this product would make my face break out.

In the post I did recommend doing a patch test. Because it is a chemical ingredient it can be an irritant.

Re: How to NOT sweat your makeup off...

OMG!!! I'm definitely going to look into this product! I sweat so easily it's not even funny...I literally have large beads of sweat on my nose and my upper lip just sitting around in the summer doing nothing...(eww). I've been looking for something like this but with no luck so thanks so much for the info!

I hear wearing a thin layer of Milk Of Magnesia works as well.

Milk of Magnesia/Mylanta works quite well for me.

Re: How to NOT sweat your makeup off...

This would be great for goin out dancin. Also, I needed this stuff yesterday. I was at a barbeque in the hot, humid sun and my face kept sweating. I hate trying to blot my face because of sweat.

I looked online and the Pro Face is only like $8. The Hydrosal is like $35. I think I would be willing to give the Pro Face a try for only $8!!

Re: How to NOT sweat your makeup off...

It is said that aluminium in antiperspirants can cause breast cancer, so I wonder how that would affect our body if put on he face.

Re: How to NOT sweat your makeup off...

Sounds pretty interesting. I would really need it when i go out. I'm with you Amanda, I'm the girl at the club that everybody stops what they're doing to watch me. (I"m not bragging, i'm just from a country area, and I'm kinda like a ghetto rock princess!)
