Instructions

  1. 1

    Rub cool aloe vera gel on your chin to help alleviate the irritation.

  3. 3

    Apply 1 per cent hydrocortisone cream to your chin twice a day for two to three days after getting beard burn to relieve itchiness.

Tips and warnings

  • If possible, avoid using acne products containing salicylic acid, glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide or retinoids for a few days before kissing a man with coarse facial hair. Using these products may accentuate the effects of beard burn.
  • If you have beard burn that doesn't go away after a few days, see a dermatologist.
