You must take care of the skin underneath your beard if you want it to look healthy. Acne, beard dandruff, and itching can all be avoided with proper skin care.
We consulted a board-certified dermatologist and Mohs surgeon Anthony Rossi, MD, FAAD, for guidance on how to make this skin care regimen straightforward. He suggests the following three-step process for those who have beards.
THE ESSENTIAL FOR BEARDS
• Appropriate Gentle Cleanser For Your Skin Type.
• A Fresh Towel.
• Scrubbing With a Soft Brush (if you are prone to ingrown hairs)
• Skin care product with at least SPF 30 (until your stubble turns into a beard)
• Beard oil, beard conditioner, or light moisturizer are all good options for men with normal to oily skin (sensitive skin)
• Comb and brush for facial hair
Dr. Riya’s three-step skin care plan for a healthy-looking beard:
1. WASH YOUR FACE AND BEARD EVERY DAY:
Every day, wash your face and facial hair. By washing, you can get rid of the grime, oils, bacteria, pollution, and dead skin cells that accumulate on your skin and beard every day. They can clog your pores and irritate your skin if you don’t wash them away. That could swiftly develop into a skin condition.
Dr. Riya advises washing with a mild cleanser suited for your skin type to achieve the greatest effects. Instead of soap, you ought to use a light cleanser. The all-too-common dry skin under your beard can be avoided by using a cleanser, which can remove dirt and debris without drying out your skin.
Here’s how to find the right cleanser for your skin type:
• OILY SKIN OR ACNE:
Use a gel cleanser with salicylic acid or glycolic acid that is labeled “non-comedogenic” (won’t clog pores) if you have oily skin or acne.
• NORMAL SKIN:
Pick a non-comedogenic cleanser if you have normal skin.
Moisturize. You might be tempted to omit this step if you have oily skin or acne-prone skin. Don’t. Skin and beard hair can become softer with the use of moisturizing
Your beard’s skin can become dry, flaky, and uncomfortable without moisturizer. Your beard may feel dry and prickly as a result.
What moisturizer is ideal for you depends on your skin type and beard length. The following is what dermatologists advise:
The stubble phase might be challenging if you are prone to ingrown hairs, sometimes known as folliculitis in medicine. Dr. Rossi advises using a mild exfoliating scrub 1-2 times per week during this phase to help avoid ingrown hairs. After, moisturize right away.
Use a moisturizer with SPF 30 or higher and one formulated for your skin type throughout the stubble phase (oily or acne-prone, normal, dry, combination, or sensitive).
Your skin is shielded from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation by the SPF. You can switch to a beard conditioner or another moisturizer once the beard has completely covered your skin.
