Look around you and you are sure to notice one thing, almost every other man sports a beard. And why should they not? There is nothing more manly and charming like a beard.
While some may have a trimmed beard that is not more than a centimeter long, few have beards that are well styled.Sadly, ask a man how their face reacted to the beard and you will get to know about the other side of the coin. Acne and beard growth go hand in hand for many out there. While an acne face beneath that dashing beard is gross and painful, it is a reality that certainly has a solution!
An acne prone facial skin doesn’t change after growing a beard. In fact, it only increases the problem. One of the prime most reasons is hygiene. An oily face requires extra care to control the oil (sebum) production. Even after you have washed your face during a bath, the beard collects dust, dirt, bacteria and what not during the day. Often men do not clean the face once they are back home, and the problem begins. Oil along with the accumulated dirt leads to acne breakouts.
If you want to prevent the acne in the first place, start washing your beard twice a day, taking time to scrub out the dirt, dust and the underlying oil. Once thoroughly dry, gently massage some beard oil into it to regulate the production of oil on the skin under the beard. Do not forget to comb the beard few times a day to dust off the fine particles, and move the oily, curled hair away from the skin.
Change the pillowcases every third day, and wash your towel on alternate days. In case you use a beard trimmer, make sure to not share it with anyone and keep it clean & hygienic. Exfoliating your face once every week will help clean the face further as it removes all the deep rooted dirt and dead skin.
Healthy practices and few extra minutes every day will ensure you are able to grow and maintain the best beard in your peer group!
