Sweating is the body's natural way of cooling itself through evaporation. It's a necessary evil, not just a hassle. I've never been a sweaty guy in any area other than my face/head. That changed when I started using some effective products that is prescribe by my physician. Preventing the sweat from coming out on your face simply creates a dam; it's still got to go SOMEWHERE. I've started sweating in places I've never sweat before; my back (lower back especially, I can feel it trickle down occasionally), feet, legs, palms. I even had droplets of sweat forming & running down my forearms at one point. Now I don't sweat all these other places at once, mind you. These are just the various locations it's popped up at different times. It's a small price to pay in my opinion, & I'd much rather do that since they're places that aren't typically visible. If you're going to try or any other product to decrease facial sweating, just be aware of this potential consequence. And always asked your physician.
