5 Products To Add To Your Beard Care Routine
Wash Your Beard Regularly
Using a specially formulated beard shampoo and conditioner will cleanse your facial hair without stripping and drying out your skin underneath. A good rule of thumb is to wash your beard every time you shampoo your hair. We especially love this two-in-one shampoo and conditioner from Tabac. It won’t leave your beard feeling greasy or oily – just soft and healthy.
Gently Exfoliate Your Skin And Beard
No man wants to be known as the guy with ‘beard-druff,’ or, more specifically, beard dandruff. That’s why exfoliating your beard no more than once or twice a week is a good idea. After using this creamy two-in-one exfoliating cleanser from Clarins, your skin and beard will look and feel better.
Remember To Moisturise Your Skin
Moisturising is the key to great skin and a great beard – it’s important not to overlook the skin beneath your beard. Apply Dior Sauvage Moisturising Face And Beard Care on a daily basis to repair the damage caused by pollution and everyday life.
Keep Your Beard Hydrated
The product you should apply after cleansing and moisturising is a beard oil or balm. These soften the bristles and give them a healthy shine, making styling your beard easier. Some oils are heavy, but this lightweight version from Kiehl’s is infused with essential oils and sinks into the hair easily. Once applied, style your beard as desired with a beard brush.
It's Essential To Trim Your Beard
Shaping a beard, like getting a haircut, is best left to the pros. However, arming yourself with a few tools can assist in maintaining the appearance between visits. Grab a good pair of clippers, such as the Bennett Read Versa Style Cordless Clippers, to keep your beard looking fresh and well-groomed.
