So, you have a beard and are tired of seeing its curls and twirls. It itches most of the time, and, perhaps, it doesn’t match with your mustache. Or maybe you have been patient with your beard, grown it the best you can and just don’t know how to care for it.
An unkempt, shaggy beard isn’t a good indicator of personality. Grooming and taking care of your facial hair is as important as taking care of your body and your skin. We present a helpful grooming guide for your beard.
Your beard needs to be moisturized semi-regularly to avoid that annoying itchiness. Although your facial hair follows roughly the same rules as the hair on your head, you don’t need to wash it every day. It will become dry. Try to maintain a healthy routine of washing it every 2-3 days. After washing, use a dry and clean towel.
Some sites do recommend using conditioner on the beard, but to add a bit more moisture and texture, you should use a beard balm.
Not everyone has what it takes to grow a full beard. It depends on lifestyle, genetics, and the shape of your face. If you have managed to grow one, count yourself lucky. But an unruly mass of hair jutting out of random places from your chin is of no use.
You should have a particular style in mind, and most of that comes down to the shape of your jaw. Long beards work splendidly for sharp, angular faces as they add girth. Men with thickset faces and double chins should try to go for a beard with defined lines and borders. It hides your curves!
Yes, you heard it right. A healthy diet plays a key factor in maintaining a healthy beard. Avoid drinking too much alcohol, and try to follow a diet rich in vitamins (especially Vitamin A) and Omega-3 acids.
Sometimes, your beard just won’t listen to you. It will grow in different directions, misshapen and uneven. Having a good grooming toolkit is an excellent way to care for your beard in such situations. Beards and mustache combs or bristle hair brushes can come in handy.
A good trimmer can be among the best tools there is if you want to maintain a shapely stubble. If you don’t mind spending that extra buck, FLYCO Rechargeable Razor is an excellent option.
This is not an exhaustive list by any measure, but we hope we have been helpful. Growing and grooming a beard is a time-taking, but ultimately rewarding endeavor. So, why take half measures?
