In honor of #Movember, here’s our best beard-care routine for all the men who will be flaunting their facial coif this month.
To prevent facial hair-related pimples, beards should be washed twice daily, pillowcases switched every few days, along with mindful grooming. As your facial hair collects dirt and bacteria, a consistent maintenance routine will keep your beard health in check.
While a dermatologist can prescribe antibiotic treatments that may keep acne at bay, the best preventive measure is good beard hygiene. If beard-acne problems persist, laser therapy is an effective way of removing problematic areas of hair that cause bumps.
Check out our list of products to keep your beard health — and look — in check.
Step 1 – Cleanse:
Dermalogica Special Cleanser
This gel formula works to remove dirt and oil from skin and does not have any of the harsh drying effects that most cleansers do, it also shrinks pores and keeps acne at bay.
Step 2 – Exfoliate:
Scotch Porter Charcoal and Licorice Exfoliating Face Scrub – 3.4 oz
When it comes to exfoliating the beard, charcoal and licorice prevent ingrown hairs and keep your beard skin looking fresh. Highly effective!
Step 3 – Moisturize:
La Roche Posay Lipikar Baume AP and Lotion
A good moisturizer should be at the foundation of every man’s skincare regime as dry skin clogs pores, causing more pimples. Usually, men’s T-zones are naturally on the drier side, this product hydrates and moisturizes skin, while leaving it with a fresh glow.
These products are available in most major pharmacies.
