Does Excessive Sweating Affect Latisse Results?

I would like to know if Latisse would be effective if you work out in the gym and sweat a lot?

Latisse and sweating

Probably not, because it is applied at night after you wash your face and before you go to bed. That means you won't be sweating, allowing the product to be properly absorbed.

Apply Latisse at bedtime as directed

You should apply Latisse at bedtime, not right before going to the gym. Once it has "soaked in" over night it is not likely to be washed off or sweated off at the gym. This is not a cosmetic but a medication that if applied correctly will absorb into the base of the lash follicles and not be subject to sweating or washing. As directed, it should be applied with the applicator to the upper lashes only in a very thin film and some will transfer to the lower lashes with blinking.
