Good Morning:

What combination of tools would I employ to remove or reduce glistening sweat on a subjects face. It is not full droplets buy close in some cases. Amy help would be appreciated.

First - what version of Lightroom do you have? And do you have the CC version or not?

It is a bit hard to give a precise answer without seeing the photo, but I'd start in LR with the spot removal tool and try both healing and cloning to see which worked the best.
If I wasn't happy with the results, and I had the CC version, I take the photo into Photoshop and work on it there.

Thanks for the reply. I have updated all of my info and added a sample photo. I have the latest Adobe CC subscription. (I can see now that the perspiration droplets are visible.)

I just did this fairly quickly in LR, so I only healed the larger droplets.
Everything under the chin was with the brush in a heal mode, about 36 spots.
Near the nose, I put the brush in clone mode, about 18 spots.
To the right of his left eye, I healed about a dozen spots.
If I was going to do this more, I'd probably move over to Photoshop and use that healing brush. I think it works a bit better than LR's on difficult spots, and it doesn't slow down with a lot of spots as LR is reported to do.
