WINTER BEARD CARE: HOW TO KEEP YOUR BEARD + SKIN HYDRATED AND ITCH FREE

It is that time of year again: the temperature drops, the heaters come on and you notice your skin itching more than usual. Have a beard? You probably notice that man mane is feeling drier than you’d like. Why do our skin and beard dry out during the winter, and how can we stop that dry, flaky, itchy skin?

FIRST, LET’S EXPLORE WHY YOUR SKIN AND BEARD DRY OUT DURING THE COLDER MONTHS.
Most people assume the colder weather causes dry skin. It is actually a combination of factors — but the decrease in humidity, not temperature, is one of the main causes of winter dryness.
The outermost layer of your skin is called the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum is comprised of dead skin cells bound together forming a protective layer over the living skin cells below.

This shrinking of the stratum corneum causes the tight, dry s…

Have you ever noticed strange bumps on your face that appear after a shave? Red bumps can be pimples, and in many cases, hives. But the ones that pop up after shaving are the result of ingrown hair, also called ‘razor bumps’.Hair is normally supposed to rise up from the skin. When it curls and grows back into the skin, it becomes what is referred to as an ingrown hair. This condition is characterised by red bumps accompanied by itching and inflammation around the affected area.

Although ingrown hairs do not pose a serious threat and usually go away once the hair has grown a little longer, the accompanying itch and discomfort are more than enough to pester most guys. Furthermore, these bumps that trap the hair can turn into small pus-filled boils, which are even more painful and annoying. An ingrown hair occurs after shaving and usually appears on the cheeks, neck, and chin. You can also get them on your arms, legs, or other parts of your body that you shave as well, however.
