Dude, Beard Dandruff Is Real. Here’s How to Deal With It.
First, you had to get those white flakes on your head under control. Done. They’ve cleared up nicely with the use of a shampoo and conditioner formulated with tea tree oil, such as our “One and Done.” But now that you’ve finally decided to grow some facial hair, turns out you’re starting to see the dreaded flakes there too. What is happening?
How Beard Dandruff Happens
Like the scalp and the skin all over your body, the skin beneath your beard can also get dry and a little flaky. Yes, even the most virile of beards can conceal a dark, ugly secret: beard dandruff.
That happens because the skin under all that thick hair is starving for nutrients and moisture, since facial hair makes it difficult for the active ingredients in your daily skincare regimen to reach it. So while your beard might look full, lustrous and manly, the skin underneath it starts to slough off. Uh-oh.
Here’s what you need to do right now to obliterate those ugly flakes from your facial hair.
1 - A Good Cleansing Routine
Because shaving removes the uppermost layers of skin, men who shave every day don’t usually have to deal with sloughing skin. But those with beards need some extra skin care pampering to both clean it efficiently and maintain skin hydration at an optimal level to avoid beard flakes.
Menz Club Face/beard cleansing gel allows you to thoroughly clean your face without drying it, while effectively eliminating dirt and excess sebum. It also dislodges the accumulation of dead cells on the skin and in the beard, and fights against bacteria. Non-irritating, it’s formulated with gentle argan oil and babassu seed oil to soften the skin, while soothing irritations such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.
2- Hydrate With a Moisturizing Cream
After a good facial cleansing, Menz Club 2-in-1 Face & Beard Moisturizer for Men, which is formulated with natural ingredients like argan oil and babasu oil, is ideal for improving the health of your skin.
A small amount of this cream designed specifically for men should be enough for most faces. Just be sure to spread it evenly, starting under the chin and working your way up the face to the cheek diagonally. This cream is light enough to be absorbed quickly, but nourishing enough to moisturize the skin evenly.
There. Your beard dandruff problems are history.
