You’re about halfway through Movember, and you’re probably loving the way your beard looks. You’ve finally achieved that rugged masculinity that you’ve always wanted. But one thing you probably never wanted was increased beard acne. Beards themselves can be home to quite a few unwanted issues like dandruff, itchiness, and irritation. But another unexpected side effect of growing out your facial hair is an increase in beard pimples. If you’ve never grown a beard before, this is a huge change for your face. Skipping out on regular grooming can lead to some nasty issues. Leaving dust and dirt in your beard over an extended period of time allows acne to fester and flourish. The great news is that a few beard grooming tips can help you get rid of that beard breakouts for good.
Cleansing is Key To Avoid Beard Breakouts
Skincare 101 starts with your daily face wash. In order to remove the fresh layer of dead skin cells from your face, you need to use a gentle, oil-free cleanser twice each day-once in the morning and again before bed. This is ideal for your face but it also helps keep your beard clean. Since you’re only about two weeks into Movember, you don’t have intense growth yet. Most days, your daily face wash will be more than enough to keep things in order.
But Deep Cleaning is Necessary
Just like you need to exfoliate your skin twice a week for a deeper clean, you need to do the same for your beard. There’s just some dirt and grime that’s buried deep down in there, and you need extra backup to get it out. The Alchemist Tea Tree & Peppermint Beard Shampoo Soap provides a rich lather that easily deep cleans your beard while leaving it refreshed and moisturized. Unlike other commercial soaps formulated for your body, this tea tree & peppermint beard shampoo is designed to get your beard sparkling clean without stripping it of its natural oils.
Speaking of oils, beard oil products are a a mandatory last step of your beard care routine. It’s probably the most important of all the beard grooming tips. All of this daily cleansing and deep cleaning will be in vain if you don’t keep things moisturized on a regular basis. To complement the The Alchemist beard shampoo, use The Alchemist Tea Tree & Peppermint Beard Oil for a refreshing finish to your beard care. Beard oil is necessary to moisturize both your beard and the skin underneath. The sebaceous glands on your face aren’t big enough to produce enough oil for your face and your new beard hair. Beard oil provides an assist in keeping your beard hair soft, healthy and untangled. Peppermint beard oil has the added benefit of providing a relaxing scent that smells as great as it feels.
Being Consistent Prevents Beard Acne
This isn’t a routine you can dabble in every once in a while. These beard grooming tips are essential for every day (and week in the case of the beard shampoo). Without a daily cleanse, dirt and dead skin cells clog your pores. It’ll get especially bad in your beard when those clogged pores lead to ingrown hairs. Keeping your beard clean and fresh is the only way to avoid the awful side effects.
With beard oil, moisturizing can be done in the morning and last you all day. All in all, caring for your beard is a minimal process that requires just a few products and a few minutes of your time each day.
As Movember moves forward at full speed, you want a healthy beard you can show off with pride. If you skip these steps, your campaign’s in big trouble and you’re going to suffer from beard breakouts.
