Default Reducing brake dust

Is there any way to reduce brake dust build up? Besides the
obvious constant cleaning? Tips or products?

A lot depends on how often you clean them.

I have found just using a spray wax or something similar on the wheels (chrome or clear coated) on every wash can make cleaning wheels easier.

I clean wheels mid week to prevent build up.

Just a few sprays of wheel cleaner, then slowly pouring a bucket of water over them to remove the cleaner and residue keeps the wheels clean all the time.

It takes just a few minutes and if you pour slowly the body panels don't get splashed.

You could consider changing to a different type of brake pad - ceramic seems not to dust.

Forrest's suggestion on brake pad selection is the real answer.
