As the world of adolescent skincare often goes unnoticed, today we crack the code on self-care for teen boys. My enlightening chat with Dr. Sheilagh Maguiness, a pediatric dermatologist and co-founder of Stryke Club, reveals the untold hurdles teen boys face as they navigate the stormy seas of skincare. We're busting myths left and right—from charcoal's real impact on acne to the proper way to wield a razor. It's about time we tailored conversations and routines to the reality of boys' lives, helping them, and their parents, foster confidence through simplicity and clarity in their self-care practices.

Skincare doesn't discriminate, and neither should we. That's why this episode also casts a spotlight on the significance of gender-neutral products and the fine print on those 'natural' labels that might do more harm than good to young skin. Ever wondered why your child's skin reacts unexpectedly to that botanically-infused lotion? We've got you covered with personal stories of navigating allergies and the lowdown on ingredients that could trigger them. Plus, for those teens breaking a sweat in sports or life, we share the ins and outs of choosing the right antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory body washes, making sure your child's skin stays as resilient as they are.

Lastly, we wrap up with some hard-earned wisdom on managing eczema and acne—the twin peaks of teen skin concerns. Discover the art of rehydrating and shielding skin from the sun, and why starting conversations early about self-care can make all the difference in destigmatizing these routines for boys. And for those moments when over-the-counter just doesn't cut it, Dr. Maguiness and I lay out the roadmap to professional dermatological care. So, whether you're a parent looking to guide your child or a teen ready to take the reins of your skin health, this episode is your ally. We're here to share a laugh, shed some light, and support you through the journey of growing up skin-savvy.
