    chapstick/vaseline is very interesting! at least it’d go on clear? maybe not cherry though. i run with at hat but i still get eye-burn going on. it sucks! gonna give that chapstick trick a shot.

    I used bandanas for many years and can speak from experience, once they reach full saturation some sweat does start leaking through. some will be diverted and drip out the back of the bandana from the tail of the knot so it isn’t as bad as running without, but it is far from perfect on the longer runs especially in hotter weather.

    I’m a big fan of the Halo visor. Bought one a few years ago at an expo and use if often yearround (because, of course, it’s hot here yearround). Works really well and cleans up nicely in the wash.

    I run in the tropics, and sweat pours off within the first 10 minutes of running. I have used bandannas, vaseline, Halo headbands and ordinary absorbent sweatbands. I have found that by far the most efficient are ardinanry towelling-sweatbands, which absorb all eh sweat which runs off your crown down towards your face – when it is saturated, you simply whip is off and squeeze it dry, and return it to your head, for another 10 or 15 minutes of absorbing, then repeat. Vaseline is OK but sweat if itchy on your forehead, so you have a tendency to wipe your forehead with your hand, and then smea the vaseline all over your forehead and hand – a mess ensues. Bandannas are OK by they heat your head up, not allowing evaporation ot occur, and Halo bands don;t really work like they say – there is too much furrowinging on one forehead.

    I loved your article – it was some great information. I think you and your readers might be interested in another article I found, about Dry Eyes.

    I think I look like a gangster wearing one, and it can only absorb so much sweat.

    Great article! I sweat too much and my eyes start burning which in turn causes my nose to start running! It looks like I’m having an allergy attack or something! LOL! A friend mentioned petroleum jelly on the forehead and I may just try that. I can totally see me “forgetting” that I have it on and wipe my forehead though. We’ll see…
