There are several good reasons why you should grow a beard. It keeps you warm in the winter; it protects the skin from the sun and can even reduce the risks of bacterial infections. But most importantly, a well-groomed beard has shown to make men feel more masculine, confident and attractive.
However, growing a beard is not always as easy as it may sound. In fact, lots of men struggle with irritated and itchy beards. Luckily though, there are ways to prevent this condition.
To prevent irritated and itchy beards, it's important to understand what the root cause of this condition is.
The main cause of irritated and itchy beards is that the beard is so thick, that the skin underneath can’t breathe and therefore gets very dry. Dry skin will eventually get itchy and irritated if not properly treated. So, when you experience an irritated and itchy beard, it is actually most likely the skin underneath your beard that bother you and causes the problem.
