Dove Men+Care How to apply moisturizer

3 steps to wash away beard dandruff

  • 1


    If you have a longer beard, it’s a good idea to wash it just like you wash the hair on your head. But you don’t necessarily need beard dandruff shampoo. We recommend a formula that can cleanse your facial hair and the skin underneath, like our Dove Men+Care Plant Powered Reinvigorating Lime + Avocado Oil Cleansing Bar. Made with natural essential oils, it cleanses your beard while giving your skin superior moisture.

    If your beard is on the shorter side, a face wash infused with tea tree oil will do the trick. Try our 3N1 Revive with Tea Tree Oil Body, Face + Hair Wash, which is formulated with hydrating ingredients for your skin and hair.

    Exfoliation is an important part of your grooming routine, especially for beard dandruff treatment. Gently combing with a soft to medium-density beard brush from root to tip will not only help exfoliate your skin and wash away flakes – it will also leave your beard hair feeling softer.

    If you have a short beard, you can also use an exfoliating cleanser like Dove Men+Care Deep Clean 3-in-1 Bar. Made with ¼ moisturizing cream and exfoliating grains, it gently scrubs away dead skin cells while helping maintain your skin’s moisture.

    Keeping the skin under your beard hydrated – without leaving it feeling greasy – is another great way to help wash away dandruff. Go for a moisturizer like Dove Men+Care Hydrate+ Face Lotion, which is non-greasy and helps protect dry skin.

    For longer beards, use a beard oil instead of trying to moisturize underneath the hair. When choosing your beard oil, opt for a nourishing, lightweight formula that helps avoid clogging up your pores or drying out your skin.
