5 Common Beard Problems and How to Resolve Them

Beards are fun to rock, but they also require a lot of effort to appear fresh, properly nourished, and well-cared for. Maintaining a masterful manly mane demands much more than just sheer will and determination. 

Many bearded men can tell you that the path of facial hair righteousness can sometimes be a rough and difficult journey. Along the way, even the fiercest warriors among us are bound to encounter trials and tribulations. 

Lucky for you, Fresh Beards can be the weapon that helps you defend your luscious facial fur against the elements. Check out these five common beard problems and learn how Fresh Beards can help you resolve them.

That Itch You Just Can’t Scratch 

Beard itch is perhaps the most common complaint among those who attempt to grow a burly beard. This issue becomes even more common among those who’ve been baby-faced for years and are just now starting their beard journey.

As new hairs grow, their sharp edges can scrape against your skin, causing itchy irritation. When a beard is fully grown, issues with proper maintenance and hygiene can cause this problem as well.

Resolving beard itch is simpler than you might think, but you still need the right tools for the job. Fresh Beards’ line of all-natural, shea-based Beard Butters are perfect for this issue, as their formulas are free of parabens, sulfates, silicones, and dyes.

These harsh chemicals are commonly found in other beard products marketed and relieving itch, but the reality is: they will only exacerbate the problem. Taking Fresh Beards’ all-natural approach is a much better bet.

Funky Facial Flakes 

Though the hair on your scalp is much different from the hair on your face, both areas can be prone to dandruff and flaking if you’re not careful. Nobody wants a head full of flakes, but a face full of flakes is arguably worse.

Typically, this issue can be caused by excessive stress, dry weather, dead skin trapped by the bears, and even yeast. To prevent this issue, you’ll want to carefully wash your beard regularly with Fresh Beard brand Beard Wash.

Our Beard Wash product is infused with excellent natural ingredients, including grapeseed oil, which has the ability to loosen dead face skin trapped by your gnarly scruff. In addition, our Beard Wash project works to moisturize and maintain the skin beneath your beard even as it cleanses.

Afterward, top-off your beard with a healthy dab of Fresh Beards Beard Balm, as this product is infused with all-natural beeswax and coconut, jojoba, and almond oils, all of which can help reduce skin irritation and eliminate beard dandruff.

Be Gone Beard Acne!

Unfortunately, the bearded gods among us are especially prone to acne, as bacteria can enter and infect the hair follicles responsible for piecing together your face-warmer. Inflammation is a key player in beard acne issues, as are ingrown hairs and rough shaving.

Both coconut and golden jojoba oil contain anti-inflammatory properties that can work to heal and repair acne and damaged skin, and that’s why Fresh Beards considers these oils to be key ingredients in our extremely popular line of Beard Oil products. 

In addition, some of our seasonal beard oils are infused with fragrant oils like tea tree, eucalyptus, and peppermint, all of which can aid in moisturization and bacterial defense.

A Brittle Beard is Not Fit for Battle

The more you expose your beard to the elements, the more likely it is to become brittle and weak. When this happens, your facial hair can become frayed or break when you try to brush or comb it. This can lead to uneven length and growth, as well as a wiry and aged look.

Natural products like Beard Butters, Beard Balms, and Beard Oils containing avocado oils, vitamin E, grapeseed, and jojoba oils are your best line of defense when it comes to keeping your gloriously hairy face ornamentation soft, relaxed, and voluminous.

In addition, properly engineered beard grooming products like wooden combs and softer brushes can also go a long way in helping you maintain a warm and welcoming beard. Check out Fresh Beards’ incredible comb and brush products right here!

Be the Master of Your Own Style

Like a peacock’s tail feathers or a lion’s mane, a man’s beard is his pride and joy. The thicker, longer, and more impressively styled it is, the more mates you’re likely to attract. Not to mention, a proper burly beard radiates power and authority.

Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you just can’t break through the glass ceiling into the land of bearded Valhalla. While majestic beards are largely driven by genetics, there are still multiple things you can do to help your facial hair get to the level you’re looking for. Oftentimes, proper styling and grooming is half the battle.

For a thick and hairy facial fortress you can take home to mom, try using products that are high in beeswax, coconut oil, and almond oil. Products that include these ingredients are much more likely to help you set the perfect conditions for impressive beard growth. At Fresh Beards, every last one of our beard care products uses at least one (if not a combination) of these ingredients. Check out everything we have to offer right here.

Also, if you want to be the next beard-boasting mountain man or beach bum, it’s important to look the part. Decking yourself out in masculine, comfortable, and breathable clothing options like our exclusive Fresh Beards apparel may just give you the little extra boost of confidence you need to be the master of your own bearded destiny.
