You may have seborrheic dermatitis or allergy to beard care products!
If you have an itchy beard with dry skin, peeling and redness under a beard or mustache, it's time to take action. Holidays are coming, and with a few simple steps you can stop the itch to look and feel your best.
What causes an itchy beard?
Seborrheic dermatitis, also known as facial dandruff, can cause a "beard." Most likely, a yeast organism is involved, but no one knows what causes this disease.
Another possibility is allergic contact dermatitis, in which your shaving gel, beard oil, mustache mask, shampoo or other facial products cause an allergic reaction.
How to get rid of warty itch?
First, look through all the products that you use on your skin. Pay special attention to shampoos and soaps, as many of them are harsh on the face.
If you develop a rash that continues to spread, or there is another negative reaction to the product, stop using it immediately.
Then switch to hypoallergenic products specifically designed for the face and beard to help eliminate the risk of allergic reactions.
Try cleaning your beard with a multitasking product like my Daily cleanser for the face. It cleans and prepares the skin for shaving.
If you think you have seborrhea (bearded), try my Zinc Foaming AgentThis will help you fight dandruff on your beard, mustache skin and everywhere!
After washing, apply hypoallergenic beard oil with carrier oils that mimic the natural oils of your skin and have good conditioning agents. So your beard and mustache
hair will be soft and healthy. You just put a few drops on your fingertips and run your way through your face and beard from the bottom up.
Then stroke the hair of the beard or mustache down to cover the outer surface and lay the hair in a well-groomed form.
Check my hypoallergenic Sensitive oil to build skin.
If you believe that seborrhea is the cause of your bearded itch, start with my Omega-enriched booster oil.
These two face masks contain the best essential oils to combat brecae.
One last tip … apply sunscreen!
You may not think that you need to apply sunscreen to the skin under the beard, but it can protect your skin and not make the sunscreen hair look yellow.
Try my Pure Strength Pure Physical Spray SunscreenUse it daily and it will give you protection from the sun you need. It is ultralight and will not spoil your well-groomed beard or mustache.
