In addition to controlling the bacteria, it’s also vitally important to control their food source- your sweat. Fortunately, there’s a few different things you can do that all work together to keep your balls dry and (relatively) fragrant.
First, if you’re wearing cheap, restrictive underwear, it’s time to spring for something better. Good boxer-briefs should fit comfortably, move with your body, and allow for plenty of ventilation so that your groin doesn’t overheat. Many of the premium brands now use modern synthetic fabrics that are lightweight, soft, and actually wick moisture away from the body so that your sweat doesn’t sit against the skin, but 100% cotton will do all of this fairly adequately as well, so there’s no need to break the bank.

Second, you should consider using a daily powder designed to absorb and control groin sweat. While simple baby powder can do the trick, there are genuine health concerns surrounding talc, the primary ingredient in most legacy powder brands. Today’s purpose-designed men’s powders such as Bozak offer superior protection with talc-free formulas that provide powerful all-day dryness as well as ingredients that kill bacteria, fight fungal infections such as jock itch, keep skin from overdrying, and even leave a soothing, cooling sensation. We truly believe daily powder use is a crucial daily step in every guy’s hygiene routine.
