- Razor burn & Razor bumps
Beard plague is an inflammation of the hair follicles for the beard hair. Beard plague is usually caused by staphylococci, which is a bacterium.
Beard plague can occur, among other things, if you use dirty shaving equipment. It is therefore important that you often change the blade in your scraper and keep your shaving equipment clean. It is also not a good idea to share your razor or borrow from others, as beard plague can be transmitted from person to person in this way.
You prevent beard plague by being thorough with hygiene. Wash your face with a good face wash and wipe with a clean, fresh towel.
Always end your shave by rinsing your face in cold water to close the pores. Then apply an aftershave with anti-flammatory and anti-septic properties that relieve and soothe irritation and redness and reduce the risk of beard plague.
