My Effective Treatment for Facial Dandruff (Seborrheic Dermatitis)

Updated on January 4, 2014

Seborrheic dermatitis or dandruff is a kind of skin disorder which comes in symptoms of red skin, skin flakes, and itchiness.

Mostly it occurs on the scalp which the flakes fall off consistently and you have the urge to scratch it. It needs proper and regular shampoo routine to get rid of. It doesn't happen only on the scalp but on the face and body as well.

The sad news is that dandruff can't be cured, BUT fortunately, it can be successfully treated to make your skin become normal again.

Facial dandruff, like scalp dandruff, needs similar way to treat which will be demonstrated from my own experienced.

Step one: using a dandruff shampoo

Shampoo? It might sound bizarre for you to use shampoo on your delicate face skin. Actually, it's not going to be that harsh on the skin if you use it in the right way.

Leaving it on your skin for a very short time won't do harm on your skin, so just apply the shampoo on the affected area from only 5 to 10 seconds, and then rinse off immediately.

This way you can get the benefits of the anti-dandruff ingredients. Some of them include coal tar (slows down regeneration of new cells that cause flakes), ketoconazole and selenium sulfide (kill yeast), and zinc pyrithione (prevents bacteria and fungus from building up).

I'd recommend Head & Shoulders (the classic or menthol one). It's my best choice.

Step two: using moisturizer

Dandruff shampoos aren't made for your facial skin. It may make your skin dry. Even drier on the already-dry dandruff skin. Hydrate your skin with a moisturizer that isn't oily and that doesn't contain too many chemicals. Just use a simple one for your skin.

Step three: using jojoba oil

Jojoba oil is a natural oil used for many centuries to treat problematic skin and revitalize skin. As for dandruff, its function as an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory works wonders for preventing further dandruff from building up. It also acts as a moisturizer which adds up an extra layer of moisture which came from the actual moisturizer you previously used. It keeps liveliness of the skin that could've ruined by harsh chemicals.

It prevents breakouts too!

That's it!

Just leave the moisturizer and jojoba oil on your skin overnight, then rinse off the next morning.

In the first week, you will notice the improvement, and most of your dandruff will be gone in the following week.

After a few weeks when your skin is clear, you can stop doing the treatment until, usually, a few months later which it starts to come again and you'll have to do it again but with much less effort because you'll treat it early. Good luck.
