I got married recently, and we waited until we were married to have sex. Now that we’re having sex, we’re kissing for more extended periods of time, and his facial hair rubs against my face alot. In general it wouldn’t bother me, but I have been noticing a spot between my lower lip and my chin where i have skin scaling and flaking off constantly. Plus, it’s starting to discolor. I put moisturizer on it, but it won’t stop. He gets ingrown hairs if he shaves too closely, so I don’t know what to do! Help, please!

Darling Husband has recently decided to grow out a beard (I’ll be honest – I’m not a huge fan, but it’s his call).
I think your face just needs time to get used to it. Once it adjusts, I bet you won’t have issues anymore.

Keep using moisturizer, and eventually your skin will get used to it. Or maybe try different positions when kissing to reduce the amount of rubbing?

Once his beard grows in you wont notice. The stubble factor is getting to you. MM recently shaved his off- and I am sooooooo mourning the loss

Like others have said, your skin will eventually get used to it. How long is his facial hair? I’ve noticed if Darling Husband keeps it at about 4 days length then it prickles far less.

He may need a better razor. Darling Husband gets ingrown hairs on his face if he uses certain razors, so we stick to the expensive ones. You may also suggest that he uses hair conditioner on his wiskers, when Darling Husband grows his beard out, he uses it and even he has noticed how soft it gets with conditioner.

My fiance used to let his facial hair grow to a stubble, and it sure felt like sandpaper to me, How do you “get used” to that? I don’t think you do. He should try to learn how to shave his face so he won’t get ingown hairs, they hurt him too!
One way is this:
- Unplug. Avoid electric razors, especially those with rotating heads. These razors can cause the hair to be cut off in all sorts of directions.

when I was first dating my Fiance my chin was constantly raw and flaking, then it started breaking out because of the trauma to it! We finally realized that if his beard was a little longer it wasn’t so ruff; at the time he was keeping it just at a short scruffy stubble.

Just keep moisturizing your face and your skin will adjust to it. Darling Husband used to have a huge bushman beard and it does get better.

Try exfoliation…. the 7 day srub from clinique is amazing.
