From his nether regions to his armpits, a boy’s body can be a paradise for sweat. Hands, feet, crotch, butt — you name it—it’s all sweat-prone. Sure, a good natural deodorant can help defend against the odor that sweaty pits emit, but what about all these other places where a stick won’t work? Enter, PrepU Active Dry Powder.
Just like the baby powder you used on his bottom as a baby, dry powder acts like a barrier to moisture to help prevent irritation, friction or skin reactions. How? Whether it’s talcum or cornstarch, these extremely fine powders are astringents and when applied to the skin, they cause body tissue to constrict and therefore, remain dry. But considering the recent reports linking talcum to cancer, we steer clear from talc and use a corn starch base together with arrowroot powder, baking soda and essential oils. In other words, every bottle of PrepU Active Dry Powder is packed with all-natural ingredients that keep him dry and comfortable wherever he needs it most.
The best part? You can even sprinkle some of this magical elixir in his shoes, gym bag, backpack — virtually anywhere that moisture lurks. Plus, there’s a light citrus scent that helps eliminate that sweat-stench you know so well.
So whether he’s struggling with chafing between his legs, discomfort on his back, irritation on the backs of his knees, or any other myriad of places that sweat and moisture can cause a disturbance, our talc-free powder is ready to work.
As the parent to a teenage boy, you know by now that their scent is a unique one and his lack of personal hygiene can often be to blame. So when he DOES finally take the time to shower, the importance of an effective body wash with a lasting fresh scent gets promoted to top priority.
You may be thinking that any body wash will work so long as it smells better than him, but there are actually some specifics to shop for when choosing the best body wash for teenage guys or pre-teens.
As we all work collectively to combat COVID-19, hand washing and germ-killing remain top-of-mind. Yet when it comes to our health, many people don’t realize that using antibacterial soaps or wipes today might actually be costing us our health tomorrow.
The truth is antibacterial products have never been proven more effective at fighting germs than soap and water. In fact, they may actually cause health risks while their negative impact on the environment is undeniable.
