Men's Fall and Winter Grooming Tips: Face and Scalp Dandruff
What you may not know is that the flaking of your skin may not be due to dryness. More likely it's due to a rash called seborrheic dermatitis. Dermatologist Dr. Cynthia Bailey
The more common name for seborrhea is dandruff.
Face and scalp dandruff affects both men and women of all ages. In my dermatology practice, I see many men who suffer from dandruff. They are often in the office for other skin concerns and I find the skin problem during their exam. When I mention the dandruff and give them advice, I'm struck by how appreciative they are; many men suffer the embarrassment in silence and frustration.
4 Signs that a man may have dandruff:
- flakes in the beard (beardruff),
- dry scalp,
- crusty ears, and
- redness and scale around the nose or in the brows.
Because the flakes look "dry", men with dandruff often say that they have reach for moisturizers to remedy the problem, but without success.
Seborrhea is worse in the fall and winter, so be prepared.
Even the most impeccably groomed man can’t control the fall and winter flare up of seborrhea with normal grooming products. I have two simple fixes that control it beautifully and that are easily added to a man’s grooming routine. Whether you are a man who has been suffering from seborrhea or you love a man who has, add these products to your skin care routine now and prevent the seasonal embarrassment of flaky skin.
Remedy for Facial Skin Flaking and Redness:
My Facial Redness Relief Kit fights facial flaking with pyrithione zinc and green tea antioxidants. Pyrithione zinc in the Calming Zinc Soap is an ingredient known to help control dandruff. Green tea antioxidants are known to help fight inflammation. My Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy has 80-90% pure and pharmaceutically stable green tea EGCG polyphenol isolates, meaning "the right stuff" to capture green tea benefits for your skin.
2 steps to remedy facial flaking for men:
- Wash with Calming Zinc soap once or twice a day.
- Apply the Green Tea Cream to sooth facial redness from dandruff after washing.
It's that simple.
The Green Tea Cream is light in texture and feels great even on the oiliest complexions. Even the most "skin care low maintenance" men love my Facial Redness Relief Kit products when they see how great their skin feels and looks.
"I have become a complete believer in your methods..." “My little sister introduced me to your products this summer. I have become a complete believer in your methods, your products, and your integrity. Thank you for offering real help with the facial redness relief kit! My confidence and outlook are so much better than they were”. PK
You can (and should) apply moisturizer, sunscreen or any other skin care product on top. The flaking skin has a vulnerable skin barrier that will heal better when you apply a healing skin cream moisturizer on top of the Green Tea.

To remedy beardruff, men love my Omega Enriched Face Oil to condition their beard and fight red irritated skin under their facial hair.
The best hairy men's SPF that's an invisible UV shield is my Sheer Strength Pure Physical SPF 50+ Spray.
This is a sunscreen men actually want to wear every day.
I’m using your Spray sunscreen and I love it. It is easy to apply and stays on. Even when I’m fishing and in exposure that includes reflection of UV off water I don’t get burned. I keep some in my boat to reapply when I’m fishing. Carl

As a HUGE side benefit, a good scrub with that scalp scrubber feels amazing in the shower with warm shampoo and water running down your scalp - it's a simple pleasure not to be missed.
“I love that Shampoo of yours."It is the first shampoo I ever used that settled my itchy scaly scalp. I love it and I’m going to buy 3 bottles today. I started using it on my itchy ears and it started working and it settled the itch down and then I saw the immediate results. I’ve bought Heads and S, T gel, Sol sun hive and your shampoo just does it.” MW
