Don’t stand back powerlessly and watch your son struggle with acne! Prep U produces natural, effective products that promote acne-resistance, including the Blem Pen, a blemish stick with the power of witch hazel and other ingredients supplied by Mother Nature.
All Prep U products are free from chemical or artificial ingredients. Begun by a mom of boys, Michelle Houp, Prep U strives to offer conscientious parents skin care and personal care products they can feel comfortable purchasing and providing to their sons for use. We recognize the need for age-appropriate, safe products to help parents teach their sons appropriate, independent, and sustained habits of hygiene and self-care.
Prep U production occurs at our home base in Austin, TX. We produce our products in batches and avoid using any parabens, dyes, sulfates, aluminum, synthetic fragrances, GMOs, and gluten. Our measures are also cruelty-free, vegan, and dermatologist approved.
As moms, it’s our job to prepare our sons for the next stage of life. When puberty arrives, make sure that he’s ready with a stock of appropriate and natural hygiene and self-care products.
Teens are prone to developing zits. The onset of puberty heightens the oiliness of the skin, and active lifestyles combined with inadequate skin care contribute lingering sweat and dirt to the equation. When these substances clog up your pores, zits happen. By providing the boys in your life with a natural, simple regimen of products to keep his pores clear from oil and dirt, you will help him minimize the likelihood of zits. The Blem Pen is a go-to product that he can discreetly use regardless of his schedule or daily plans.
The Blem Pen is a toner made with all-natural ingredients and applied with a roller ball. The pen-shaped design of the product allows for easy transport and discreet use, so your son will feel more comfortable using it regularly. Whenever his face feels a bit oily, he senses a blemish forming, or he has a blemish that hurts or irritates, he can just roll on the toner. The price point is such that you can stash a Blem Pen in his bathroom, nightstand, backpack, car console, etc.
The toner itself is astringent, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and moisturizing. Witch hazel, aloe, grapefruit, lavender, tea tree, and coriander are a few of the natural ingredients within the Blem Pen’s formulation.
The power of witch hazel as a skin care treatment has been known and utilized for centuries. Witch hazel is an astringent, an anti-microbial, and an anti-inflammation agent. Regular use can keep pores clear, reduce pain involved with inflamed blemishes, and make the redness of breakouts less obvious. However, witch hazel can be overly drying, so we balance out the formulation with natural products like aloe that hydrate, returning the skin to healthy balance.
Blemishes are a common issue for teens, but that doesn’t lessen the impact acne can have on your son’s confidence. With acne that doesn’t respond to treatment, your son may miss out on social, employment, academic, and other opportunities due to low self-esteem. Breakouts that don’t respond to treatment demand an appointment with a local dermatologist.
A blemish stick with witch hazel, the Prep U Blem Pen is a toner that will help your son eliminate pore-clogging oils and sweat that cause breakouts. To order these products, check out our website.
