Powder To The People

THE LOW-DOWN ON SOLUTIONS FOR DOWN BELOW

Miracle-working "privates" potions, commonly known as men's powders, are an invaluable ally in the battle against moisture, chafing and the resulting discomfort and odor in a man's nether-regions. In recent years, these grooming stalwarts have advanced beyond what gramps used to slap on his boys and are now available in a variety of formulations that are effective for athletes and cubicle-dwellers alike.

TALC-BASED POWDERS

The most traditional solution, talcum powders are what's generally thought of when referencing men's powders. They'll keep a guy dry all day and quickly absorb moisture to prevent chafing. Plus, being the standard formula, they can be purchased in a variety of scents and consistencies.

NATURAL CORNSTARCH-BASED POWDERS

Anyone who has ever cooked with cornstarch knows it's great for thickening because it rapidly soaks up moisture. It works the same way on a man's junk. Although it won't keep you dry for as long as a talc powder, some men really enjoy the comfort gained via the friction-reducing properties of starch. And, for guys with talc allergies, it's the only and most natural way to go.

SPRAYS, GELS AND OTHER MIRACLES

Powders are now available in a variety of innovative forms. Dry Goods has pioneered a point-and-spray powder, which has all the performance of talc with none of the mess. Fresh Balls makes a one-of-a-kind gel that turns into a powder on contact for application that's both mess and guess-free. These options are the best for those desiring a flake-free bathroom floor.
