Beards: dark, mysterious, and sultry.
For the longest time, beards have been on-trend as the perfect accessory for many men, complementing any look. However, underneath all that allure, some beards hide a dark secret: beard dandruff!
What is Beard Dandruff?
Beard dandruff is an age-old phenomenon that has a very simple cause. When you have a mane growing on your face, it’s very difficult to reach the skin underneath. As a result, the skin under the beard is often starved of nourishment and moisture. Simply washing your beard is not enough to get to the layer of skin underneath. Not cleansing this layer thoroughly can cause buildup. Specks of dry skin emerge from the beard in the form of white flakes that are referred to as beard dandruff.
There are simple ways to help combat beard dandruff. All you need to do is give your beard special love and care. A few adjustments in your skincare regimen will make your beard look cleaner, shinier, and more lustrous than ever!
How to Treat Beard Dandruff
The key to reducing the appearance of beard dandruff is giving your skin plenty of nourishment and moisture through a thorough cleansing and effective moisturizers. Here are 5 ways to help combat beard dandruff like a pro:
1. Use a Beard Brush
You might be surprised to know that simply washing your face does not cleanse it effectively enough. If you have a beard, you need a special tool to help you get in between the nooks and crannies, really cleansing the skin underneath the beard. A beard brush is just the tool you need.
Apply cleanser on your beard and brush it thoroughly. This technique brings dandruff to the surface, allowing you to cleanse it out. Moreover, it detangles knots in the beard, enhancing shine and softness.
2. Moisturize with Beard Oil
Beard oil is taking the personal care and grooming world by storm. There are several benefits of using beard oil. Beard oil provides intense nourishment as well as hydration to your beard. This helps to combat beard dandruff because it moisturizes dry skin. Moreover, it has emollient properties that promote softness and shine.
Majestic Pure Beard Oil is infused with natural ingredients such as castor oil and avocado oil. These oils have softening and fortifying properties that promote moisture retention in the skin, restoring lost sheen to the beard.
3. Condition Your Beard
Hold on to your socks because this is a big one! Conditioning your beard is absolutely crucial to helping you reduce the appearance of dandruff. You could use any conditioner, including the one you currently use for your hair, regularly on your beard.
Majestic Pure Virgin Coconut Avocado Conditioner is crafted with argan oil, coconut oil, and keratin protein that help to restore shine and softness to dry and damaged hair. If your beard is feeling a little dehydrated, conditioning it a couple of times a week with a conditioner will effectively moisturize it.
4. Dry Your Beard Properly
It’s very easy to neglect your beard fresh out of the shower. However, keeping your beard wet after a shower makes it prone to dandruff. The beard dries out and begins to look dull as the day progresses.
A good way to counter this is to dry your beard thoroughly with a microfibre towel. Microfibre towels retain the shine and help to reduce frizz. Moreover, towels of this material are highly absorbent and get the job done faster.
5. Face Wash
You also need a powerful and effective face wash that will help you cleanse your beard. Washing your beard is the best way to cleanse it of any dandruff. Although it is a temporary fix, regular cleansing can help reduce buildup, preventing more dandruff from forming underneath the beard.
Majestic Pure Acnea3 Scar Wash Foaming Cleanser is the perfect cleanser for your beard. It is formulated with highly effective ingredients targeted towards removing impurities while intensely hydrating the skin. It is also a gentle cleanser that can be used twice daily, helping restore softness and shine to your beard.
6. Start from Scratch
Sometimes, the dandruff gets so intense that there is no other choice but to start from scratch. With the right care, this could be a blessing in disguise.
When shaving your beard, it’s important to take care of the skin underneath. This is why you should use a pre-shave oil, to prepare the skin for a shave. Majestic Pure Sandalwood Preshave Oil softens the hair follicles with its emollient properties for a smooth shave, helping to reduce irritation. The best part is, you can continue to use this pre-shave oil as a moisturizer for your skin when your beard starts to grow back.
After you’ve shaved, you need to make sure your skin is well looked after. For this, it is best to use some kind of aftershave, to help reduce chances of dandruff resurfacing. Majestic Pure Aftershave Balm soothes and protects the skin from dryness and razor burn which can cause dandruff. It also conditions the skin so that the beard grows back lush and soft.
