I sweat. Buckets. Like, it’s embarrassing. As in the president of a major research university holding a garden party at his mansion once brought me a towel in front of his other guests (the bastard).
A few years ago I discovered a product called No Sweat, now known as Mehron Skin Prep from a friend who does theater; actors and others who wear makeup under bright lights and in hot temps wear it so their makeup doesn’t run. It works: I would never wear it everyday because it makes your skin very dry and “icky feeling” while it’s on, but I use it for things like outdoor weddings and job interviews on hot days and other times when it would be embarrassing if I looked like I was melting. (I understand you can use lotion on top of it and it helps, but haven’t tried.)
So I was curious: I’m going to a cosplay con in a few weeks and I’ll be in full Steampunk gear with ankle length dressing gown and top hat and I don’t want to gush so I was about to order some more of this product, BUT I’ve heard there are other products and natural remedies and the like, so before I get the Mehron I thought I’d ask:
Anyone know of any really good creams or ointments or pills or potions or lotions or whatever to temporarily suspend or greatly reduce sweating?
