Move Itch, Get Out the Way

by Jeffery Racheff

Growing a beard is a rite of passage. It takes time, patience, care, and a little bit of hereditary luck. Unfortunately, it can also come with a dreaded case of beard itch.

With this potential roadblock to beard bliss, what can the average Joe possibly do to avoid scratching themselves into oblivion?

Thankfully for you and your beard, we’ve taken a deep dive into the causes of beard itch – and collected a few remedies as well – that can help you grow a more comfortable mop for your mug.


What Causes Beard Itch?


There are a lot of factors that can contribute to beard itch. These issues not only disrupt your grooming habits but they can also significantly affect your self-confidence.


New Hair Growth

Just starting a beard? The new hair can cause irritation as it pierces through the skin, leading to itchiness.


Dry Skin

Everything from harsh soaps to dehydration to environmental factors can cause the skin under your beard to become dry and flaky, causing discomfort and itching.


Ingrown Hairs

Hairs don’t have brains. That means they can sometimes curl back into the skin instead of growing outwards, leading to inflammation and itching. 


Poor Hygiene

If you don’t wash and clean your skin, dirt and oil (and even dead skin cells) can build up and cause itchiness and potential infections.


Product Irritation

Some grooming products contain harsh chemicals that can irritate the skin, leading to itching.


Environmental Factors

Exposure to harsh weather conditions, like wind or cold, can dry out the skin and hair, causing itchiness.


Flaky Skin

Similar to scalp dandruff, flaky skin can develop beneath the beard, causing irritation and itching.
