What Causes Beard Itch?
Every beard wearer knows the feeling. The beard looks great, but that annoying itch just won’t go away. It’s a vicious circle of irritation and scratching that needs to be broken. But what causes an itchy beard?
Some of the leading causes of beard itching include:
- Ingrown beard hairs – Caused when beard hairs curl and grow back into the skin, ingrown hairs create raised bumps on the skin that are prone to irritation and itchiness.
- Dry skin – When left untreated, dry skin under the beard causes beard itch and leads to those annoying beard flakes.
- Bacteria – When beard bacteria are combined with flaky skin, your face is left highly prone to irritation. This is why it’s crucial to regularly wash your beard.
