How to prevent and treat beard dandruff?
Usually, beard dandruff is just skin on the face that has become very dry and, therefore, has flaked off. Usually, this happens due to the use of common shampoos, indicated for the hair, or some types of soap that end up removing the natural hydration of the facial skin. As a result, drying is inevitable.
Another reason that can give an impression of the existence of dandruff is dead cells that accumulate during shedding of the outermost layer of the skin. But, dandruff can arise, yes. And this occurs when the well-known seborrhea dermatitis or, simply, seborrhea, develops.
It is, then, an inflammation of the skin or scalp. In this case, redness and an itching appears that releases white or yellowish scales, giving a more oily appearance. This occurs whenever there is an accumulation of sebum for various reasons, such as hormonal factors, stress and even excessive alcohol consumption.
Every time this release of excessive oil from the skin happens in areas with hair, dandruff appears. In this case, we recommend that you look for a dermatologist, that is, a qualified professional to deal with the issue in a more assertive way, indicating an effective and safe treatment. Meanwhile, we leave you 6 tips, so you can avoid the appearance of dandruff in your beard. How about checking?
1 Use of specific products
It is important to keep in mind that the scalp is quite different from the skin on the face, so anti-dandruff or conventional shampoos are not recommended. They can make the problem worse.
On the other hand, a beard shampoo does not contain the same chemical content as the products mentioned above, mainly some surfactants that dehydrate the skin.
With the appropriate shampoo, you can clean the strands of your beard without drying out the skin on your face. Thus, with hydrated skin, the chances of having flaking decrease a lot.
2 Use a facial scrub
It is interesting to adopt a facial scrub and use it twice a week. That way, you constantly renew your skin, removing the buildup of dead cells. Thus, the wires are freer to grow without inflammation or jamming.
3 Dry your beard every time you wash it
Every time you wash your beard, try to dry it well with a towel or a dryer, preferably at the coldest temperature. This reduces the chances of damaging the strands, especially at night, before bed. Keep in mind that wet beards can accumulate fungus, causing infections.
4 Hydrate using beard oil
Consider adopting a vegetable beard oil, without the addition of silicone, right after cleaning. A good beard-specific oil is very effective when applied from the root, in direct contact with the skin, and not just on the surface of the hair.
If the product is 100% vegetable, its absorption is facilitated and does not clog pores, allowing the skin to breathe freely.
5 Don't touch your beard
Avoid the habit of being all the time smoothing your beard with your hand. This friction can damage the wires, as well as taking more oil from the hands to the skin. If this is a habit that is difficult to control, try using a wooden comb instead of running your hand.
6 Use shaving cream or gel
Whenever you need to shave or shave a nearby spot, like your neck, use a shaving gel or cream. Then apply an aftershave to help heal, renew cells and prevent inflammation.
And so, with all the proper care, your beard tends to grow healthy, free from dandruff and making anyone envious.
