6 Beard Grooming Tips That Every Man Should Know To Maintain A Healthy Beard!
It’s World Beard Day today and we have something special for you in this blog. Beards are definitely having a moment, and for good reason! They add masculinity, and are an outward sign of devotion to one’s faith. Plus, they’re downright stylish.
Some guys grow a beard because it seems like the cool thing to do, but plenty of guys decide to grow a beard because they want to improve the way it looks and feels. Even if you’ve grown and trimmed your beard before, you may be surprised at how much it changes over time.
That means you need to continue to groom your beard to keep it looking and feeling its best. In addition to shaving or trimming your beard, there are other ways you can maintain its quality.
Why Should Men Groom Their Beards?
- Keeps the beard clean & tidy.
- Helps prevent dandruff.
- Maintain Hygiene
- Keeps the underneath skin healthy
- Keeps the hair in the beard healthy
- Enhances the overall look of the person
- Makes the beard manageable
It’s not always easy to tell if your beard is dirty from flakes of dry skin accumulating on it, but it’s easy to tell when your beard smells bad. Wash your beard every day to prevent the growth of bacteria that can cause a buildup of dead skin cells that cause itching. Using a gentle shampoo and conditioner designed specifically for facial hair will ensure that it is properly moisturized without weighing it down or causing it to become greasy. Make sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid leaving any residue behind in your beard.
Basics Of Beard Grooming
Just like the hair on your head, there are a few basic steps that you need to follow for properly grooming your beard, regardless of the brand of the products you use. These steps are:
- Wash Your Beard
Always wash your beard with lukewarm water for best results. Cold water will not soften it and hot water might damage the hair follicles. Once went, massage with a good quality beard shampoo, which is indeed different from a regular hair shampoo in terms of ingredients and PH levels. Lather it up while you massage it up till the very base of the hair and rinse it with lukewarm water.
- Pat Dry & Moisturize
Once you’ve rinsed out all the shampoo, pat dry the beard and do not go too crazy with the towel as similar to the hair on your head, the follicles of your beard might get damaged and you could also end up disturbing the natural growth pattern of the beard.
Once dry, apply a little beard oil of your choice and let it soak for a few minutes.
- Condition The Beard
Conditioning the beard is crucially important as it detangles the hair, makes them soft and ready to be combed. Apply the leave-in beard conditioner, wait for a few minutes for the conditioner to work its magic and you’ll have a soft and manageable beard in a few minutes.
- Comb It To Perfection
Now as the beard is soft, you can easily comb it to your desirable style and step out with a perfectly clean and moisturized beard that not only looks amazing, smells fresh but also is healthy and well groomed.
6 Tips To Groom Male Beard
Like everything else in life, there are proper and improper ways to groom your beard. Here are five tips to help you get the best possible look for your beard:
- Invest in high quality beard products
Beard products are a great way to keep your beard healthy and prevent it from drying out or looking messy. A high quality beard product will nourish your hair follicles, hydrate your skin, and help you control frizzy hair.
As an added bonus, most high-quality beard products will also work to soften and smoothen your beard so it will look great all day long. Do a little research and find the one that’s right for you!
Look out for products with these ingredients:
- Castor oil
- Aloe vera
- Tea tree oil
- Shea butter
- Coconut oil
- Argan oil
- Essential oils
- Avoid using razors when trimming your beard
Using a razor when trimming your beard can cause uneven edges that disrupt the even flow of hair across your face. It can also cause unnecessary irritation and cuts. Instead, you should use scissors to trim the unwanted hairs from your beard. You should also trim it regularly to prevent stray hairs from growing long and forming an unkempt appearance.
- Use a face scrub to cleanse your beard
Your beard contains dead skin and hair follicles that can clog your pores and cause breakouts. This can lead to acne and other skin problems. To prevent these problems, you should cleanse your beard on a regular basis. Facial scrubs contain natural ingredients that help to remove dirt and oil from your facial hair. They also help to restore the pH balance in your beard and prevent bacterial infections.
- Get regular facials to maintain your skin health
If your skin is in poor condition, it can negatively affect the appearance of your beard. For example, irritated skin can manifest as redness or rashes on some parts of your face. These can stain your beard and make it appear unhealthy. To prevent this from happening, you should get regular facials to improve the condition of your skin. Facials can help reduce the effects of aging and reduce dark circles under your eyes. They can also reduce wrinkles and fine lines on your face and give you a smooth complexion.
- Use an oil-based moisturizer to soften your beard
As the skin on your face and neck is susceptible to drying and cracking, it is important that you use an oil-based moisturizer to nourish your skin and give it a healthy glow. This can also help to prevent dryness and flakiness in the hair on your beard. You can get moisturizers designed specifically for beards at your local pharmacy or department store. Alternatively. you can also use coconut oil as a nourishing moisturizer for your beard.
- Moisturize your skin before shaving or trimming your beard
You should moisturize your skin before shaving or trimming your beard to help prevent skin irritation. This is especially important if your beard has grown out and needs to be trimmed. Shaving dry skin can cause razor burn and other forms of skin irritation. You can use a shaving cream that contains moisturizers to help soften your skin and protect it from damage. You can also apply natural moisturizers such as almond oil and olive oil to the skin before applying shaving cream.
