Anyone growing out their beard has occasionally encountered an annoying itch, and maybe even beardruff (beard dandruff). This is very common and occurs every once in a while when the skin under the beard becomes dry. The skin gets very dry once your beard starts to grow longer. This is because the skin’s naturally-produced oils are used up faster by the longer hair. So this dryness tends to cause beard as well as beardruff. What a bad combo to have. Another reason besides dry skin is because sometimes it collects dust, dry skin, and other things that cause it to feel itchy.
Dandruff is a very frequently occurring skin condition in the scalp area. It’s well known for making the skin flaky and itchy. Dandruff is referred to as seborrheic dermatitis. It is very annoying and just leaves your beard sprinkling dead skin cells all over whenever you scratch the skin under it.
The best way to get rid of itch and dandruf is to use beard oil and balm products. In fact, this is one of the essential benefits that come with them – to keep the beard moisturized and conditioned. This is a daily process, and is a must if you want to keep the skin under your beard hydrated and fresh. Just like brushing your teeth. Incorporate it as part of your daily routine, preferably after a shower.
Use either beard oil or balm to keep your beard moisturized, conditioned and hydrated, and this will eliminate any itch and beardruff. It works immediately, as once the oil accesses the hair follicles through your pores, it would oil up the dryness. You will notice the itch and dandruff disappear the same day.
Once it is gone, you would want to keep it gone. So keep a habit of using the oil or balm daily, to keep the dandruff away, and to keep your beard feeling fresh and happy 🙂
