7 Beards Problems Faced By Men And How To Prevent It

Keeping beards is one of the trending things in men. Some people even call it beard gang.

There is absolutely no harm in keeping beards but keeping them neat and hygienic may be an issue. It is very easy to keep beards but may be difficult for some men to maintain it to be clean.

When the beards are not kept clean, certain bacteria can breed in and cause discomfort.

Here are the common beards problems men face:

1. Itching: Beard gets worse during sunny days because of the high heat and sweat. It often happens that the sweat gets accommodated, which creates irritation afterward.

 It is the dry skin underneath the beard that causes this irritation in summers. To deal with this use, aloe Vera gel is highly hydrating and soothing for the skin. It will help you get rid of the itchiness almost instantly and won’t leave any residue either. However, consult a dermatologist before confirming any skin allergies. 

2. Dandruff: Contrary to what people mostly believe, dandruff can occur anywhere on the body where hairs are present. Dandruff occurs in the beard also.

This problem is quite embarrassing, and you won’t want dandruff to ruin your image, hence keep in mind the following remedy. Apply tea tree oil and coconut oil, which are antifungal and help you get rid of dandruff. If you don’t get the desired result, consult a skin specialist and seek treatment. 

3. Smelly beards: This problem is often caused due to improper hygiene. Grooming your beard is essential, and you need to develop a habit of making sure you wash your beard twice daily during bathing times.

A smelly beard can make situations uncomfortable for you. Use shampoo twice or thrice a week, sulfate-free with conditioner to neutralize the smell with oil-rich lotions and beard creams if available. 

4. Uneven hair growth: This beard problem is faced by many people and is quite common. The beard does not grow in one or a few particular areas, which makes it look uneven. Use olive oil and castor oil to promote growth in that region. Regular use of conditioner is essential, which will prevent thinning of hair.

5. Ingrown hair: Beard hairs, when shaved or cut, grow back into boil shaped instead of straight out, that part of your face has ingrown hair. This causes an itchy feeling the follicle gets inflamed by direct sunlight.

 It is more likely to happen if you have tight curly beard hairs. The hairs can be grown by putting some beard oil and wash your face an ample number of times to avoid further follicle or puss growth. 

6. Tangled beard: A few tangles in the beard must be fine, but a tangled beard looks unhygienic and unprofessional in most cases. Tangles are created in the beard mostly because the hairs grow long and thick, which results in tangling.

To get a clean look, brush your beard regularly when it is wet. Apply beard lotion or oil after your beard grooming session to make dry ends tameable.

7. Acne: Beard can be a little hard to handle when you have acne on your face due to it. You can’t just shave it off because that’s generally not an option.

Beard acne happens because the hairs get trapped in the pimple and lead to infection due to moisture and heat. Exposure to pollution is also a significant factor for acne to grow. A bacterium accumulates around the hair follicles, and ingrown hair can contribute to inflammation.

This can even cause painful acne around the face. As a cure for this, use tea tree oil.
