Re: Skin

Hey there! I also suffer from the same problem. I tried a couple products, but this one does the trick for me, NEAT 3B Face Saver Gel (available on Amazon). There have been some days where it's worked better than others (depending on how much I put on and how long I let it dry before applying makeup) but I definitely notice a difference when I use it. 


I apply it after I was my face and before I moisturize. The moisturizer "pills" for lack of a better term, so I rub the extra gunk off before putting on my foundation!

Re: Skin

Im assuming you have tried setting or even baking this area with powder?

(hack: do a thin layer of powder after your primers but before your makeup - like a quick dusting with a big fluffy brush. also works to minimize look of a pores a little bit)


Next: Have you looked at whether your foundation, primer, and moisturizer are congruent with one another? Aka you're not using an silicone based primer with an oily foundation (try to stay away from either honestly). Have you tried a matte primer with a matte foundation?


I'm not a doctor but I can't not say it - ask your doc, it might be hormonal. 


Most drastic suggestion: you can have the area botoxed, it will stop the sweating in that area but beware, the sweat needs to be released somewhere and might just simply be diverted to a different area of your body. But ask a doc, I heard that doesn't happen with everyone. Depending on the severity of it and your insurance, insurance might even cover it. Good luck. I'm sorry you're dealing with this and that it's stressing you out.
