Tips to manage Beard Dandruff

Tips to manage Beard Dandruff

What do you think beard dandruff looks like? Well, it is the same condition as the white flakes developed on your scalp - a common situation characterized by redness, itchy and flaky skin. 

What causes beard dandruff?

Beard dandruff is caused by a microbe called Malassezia globosa, found on every human’s skin. This type of fungus grows rapidly in oily skin areas with a maximum number of sebaceous glands. It then breaks down sebum - oil produced by the sebaceous glands, which leads to the production of oleic acid. This acid irritates some individuals’ scalp/beard skin.

In general, the turnover cycle of your facial skin cells takes about 30 days. A disturbed pH level or faster rate of cell turnover (regeneration) can lead to the accumulation of dead skin cells on your skin, which causes dry skin flakes.

The white flaky skin may grow increasingly visible if not treated soon, which can lead to an embarrassing experience amongst people. The remedies are simple, 4 highly effective steps have been listed below:

Exfoliate your facial skin

Exfoliating the dead cells is the most essential part of one’s grooming routine. It lightens your skin tone and removes unwanted impurities, including flaky skin underneath your beard, leaving behind a fresh and glowing face. We recommend using a beard brush or scrub. You must try Rockwell beard brush made of natural boar bristles that is gentle on your skin and avoids rashes.

Use gentle/mild cleanser

Just exfoliating your beard hair isn’t enough! For healthy skin, you must wash your face and beard at least thrice a day with an antibacterial soap or face wash specially designed for facial cleansing. This practice prevents your beard hair from accumulating dirt and keeps your skin oil-free

Moisturize your beard 

Dry skin can often increase the risk of beard dandruff, so change your skincare regime and adapt to a healthier approach to maintain your well-shaped beard. To keep the skin underneath your beard hydrated, use a moisturizer daily before going to bed.

Close the cycle with beard oil/ End the routine with beard oil

Use Rockwell Beard Oil - Barbershop Scent, for soft facial hair and an impressive looking beard. The oil is made of natural ingredients like Grape Seed Oil, Hemp Seed Oil and Argan Oil, which eliminates beard itch, dry skin and patchy hair - without the greasy after-glow.
