Ingrown beard treatments

My boyfriend has trouble with acne and ingrown hairs, and I’m wondering whether anyone has recommendations on effective treatments? I’ve heard exfoliants help, perhaps a mask?

RE: Ingrown beard treatments

Hi Willow, the best way to keep the skin clean is using a face wash morning and night to help balance the skin Dermalogica Cleansing Gel. Also using exfoliating pads with Glycolic acid I love and always use when I feel my skin getting too oily or if I feel a pimple coming out Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Pads, use all over the face and neck, and go back on areas where you have the most problems. Also, keeping hands and pillow cases clean and trying no to touch the face the best you can. Ilde Goncalves SephoraPro

It depends how dense his beard is. Can you see his skin through his beard or no? You would just be treating his beard hair with a mask if you can’t see his skin.

His beard itself is sort of sparse. He keeps it pretty short for work, but most of his issues are at the edges where he neatens it up.
