what's up everyone? I was wondering, does anyone have a problem with their hands being too sweaty when performing? I've been doing card magic for about six years now and am very comfortable with performing but I can't get over my hands sweating. I've tried baby powder and talcom powder but they don't seem to work. It's hard to even practice sometimes cuz my hands sweat and the cards become sticky. Any suggestions? Thanx

Try spraying some anti-perspirant deodorant on your hands.

Depending on how severe this problem is (for example, do your hands sweat constantly, or just when you're nervous?), there is a prescription medication you can take called "Drysol." Use this three or four times and your hands will hardly ever sweat at all anymore. Of course, you'd need to see a doctor first to get a prescription.

If your hands only sweat when you're nervous, I'm afraid the only cure is to perform as often as possible until you get over it. I just started doing magic, and performed a few routines for my wife's family over the weekend - people I've known for over a decade - and was so nervous, I got more comments afterward about how nervous I was than how great my tricks were.

But like anything else (public speaking, etc.), the only way to beat it is to face it head-on.

You know what's weird? When I get nervous doing magic infront of people my hands go completely dry. I know this isn't as much of a problem since i can use lotion and stuff, but it still sucks.

The deoderant Idea sounds good

If anyone has sweaty hands and/or feet often it can be a genetic disorder.

Well if you only get it when you are nervous, then that is probably normal, but if you get it when you're practicing, ect, you may have a genetic disorder.

fanning powder, is not the best thing in the world,

try putting baby powder on your cards, youl see a BIG difference.
