Well, answer this: Did your boyfriend or husband recently grow a beard? Cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Jeanine Downie says short, prickly hair rubbing against smooth skin causes friction – which increases oil production. And when that oil gets trapped, it leads to breakouts. It also can create a “beard burn” rash. Dr. Downie says you could ask your partner to shave or to condition his beard with coconut oil, so a kiss doesn’t feel like a thousand stabs to the chin – and give you the face of a pimply teenager at 40-years-old.
