Hold your breath...or try a Pinlock visor system. https://www.motosport.com/blog/what-is-a-pinlock-visor

I think there is a shaving cream hack where you apply it to the inside of the visor let it sit for a while then wipe it out. Supposed to work, but never tried it.

Can definitely confirm Pinlock visors are awesome and work amazing. If your helmet has a pinlock visor available it's worth every penny. You really don't notice the pins when you're not using the insert and I've never seen fog when I am using it.

The chin curtain piece helped keep me warm but it seemed to make fogging worse since it kept my breath more inside the helmet so I left it out and use a bandana if I need the warmth on my neck/chin. The breath guard (piece by your nose) definitely helps keep your breath off the inside of visor. If your helmet has a setting to keep the visor cracked a hair open that made the biggest difference in keeping it from fogging. My old Shoei had a little lever on the side that cracked the visor open a touch and I pretty much always had to have it open to keep from fogging. My current Shoei doesn't but the airflow is better so I just use the breathguard and I don't really have problems.

As others have said, the Pinlock system works wonder. Best to have a separate visor leaving the pinlock system "permanently" on since taking it off and on is a PITA.

Before the wonderful Pinlock, I used a bottle of anti- fogging liquid ("Antifog") which I spayed occasionally onto a cloth and wiped over the visor inside. This helped a lot. Bottle says: Bob Heath Visors - Replacement Visors (in UK)

Edit: Well, posting has changed the website URL to what you see above.

have you tried leaving the vent closest to your mouth open? or what about cracking the visor open just a slight amount?
Lastly, this sounds dumb, but it does work, when you breath out, pull your lower lip inwards and exhale downwards against your chin
