Beard burn is a phenomenon that many ladies experience when dating a guy with stubble. It happens when a guy’s sharp, course facial hair rubs onto the skin around your lips and chin, creating redness, irritation and unsightly bumps. Since not kissing your guy clearly isn’t an option, here are a few of Allure magazine’s ideas to help fix the problem.
A protective moisturizer can work as a barrier between your delicate skin and your guy’s beard, so slather on a product like Sothys – Hydroptimale THI3 Comfort Hydrating Creme before your lips get busy. Applying it again afterward can help soothe any discomfort if you still managed to get a bit of irritation.
A 1 percent hydrocortisone cream can work to help eliminate the pain and redness, and it’s important to avoid using cleansers and scrubs with exfoliating particles while your face is healing. To avoid irritation when applying or removing your makeup you can use the beauty sponge from Beauty Blender.
