Beard Acne, Bumps, & Pimples Solution

Acne and ingrown hair under your beard can be annoying to deal with — painful, even. (Have you ever accidentally nicked a pimple with a razor while cleaning up your line?Ouch.)

I’ve had them, plenty of guys in our online community have had them, and if you’re reading this, chances are that you’re dealing with them now.

Luckily for you, I rounded up five steps you can’t leave out of your grooming regimen if you want clear skin, plus the accompanying products that I always keep stocked on my bathroom counter. All in the name of clear, smooth skin and confidence that turns heads.

Use an acne-fighting beard wash.

Pimples occur when bacteria and fungus get trapped under the skin, causing an inflammatory reaction. That’s why your beard wash/beard shampoo should haveantibacterial andantimicrobial properties. We’re talking about ingredients likesunflower oil, which can be found in ourMY Wash, andactivated charcoal, which physically draws impurities out of your skin and beard. Make sure you’re washing your beard twice a week.

MY Wash

Exfoliate your skin.

Exfoliation is an essential step because it helps to remove dead skin cells, which trap bacteria and fungus under the skin — the culprits of acne. Plus, exfoliation helps to prevent ingrown hairs, which can be easily mistaken for pimples. By gently exfoliating two to three times a week, you keep skin smooth and clear. 

Use a beard detox like the MY Face Scrub.

TheMY Face Scrub is an exfoliating mask that pulls pollutants, bacteria, and other acne triggers out of your beard — allowing for a deeper, more thorough clean. Because this step is more intensive than a simple wash, I recommend doing it only once a week.


Keep your beard — and the skin underneath — hydrated and moisturized.

Dryness is a huge trigger for pimples, because dryness means zero elasticity. And zero elasticity makes for weak skin and beard strands. Beard balm can help to lock in moisture and protects your beard from harsh, cold, and humid weather. The MY Balm from Evan Alexander Grooming also includes coconut oil, which is antibacterial and helps prevent pimples. 


Do a fruit cleanse to free the body and the skin of toxins. 

No one likes the idea of changing their diet. Like they say, 'It's hard to teach an old dog new tricks' but the way to avoiding pimples is to start from the inside out. Doing a fast, especially a detox fast, will increase the nutrients that your skin needs to be stronger, healthier, and more vibrant. Need help?
