With great beard, comes great responsibility. This World Beard Day, let’s embark on an epic beard growing voyage.
Men keep beards for various reasons. To sport the latest facial hair trend or for the simple fact that women love men with beards! Well, whatever may be the reason for growing a beard, maintaining it is important too. When it comes to their beards, one of the biggest mistakes men make is not taking care of it. Most men don’t even use a shampoo, conditioner or beard oil. The best way to take care of your beard is by following a simple routine.
If you plan on growing a beard, it will require the same amount of care as the hair on your head. So, if you follow a good haircare regimen, following one for your beard is no biggie! HAIR brings you some important tips to grow a beard and wear it well. Now, go get a face of good-looking hair.
Use a beard oil
Many men dismiss oiling as an unnecessary luxury or as an optional product. Using good beard oils (or a leave-in conditioner) nurtures the beard follicles and moisturises and softens beard hair. There is no shortage of beard and moustache oils out there so go and take your pick.
Wash it regularly
Washing your beard at least once a day is basic hygiene. Dirt, dust, debris, and other gunk, can easily get accumulated in your beard. This means you have to wash your beard often to keep it clean. Using a beard wash every time is not necessary; a simple rinse is sufficient.
Beards protect much of your face against UV rays, acting as a natural sunscreen. However, it the length of your beard is proving to be a problem, wear it short and trim it regularly. Shorter beards are less prone to getting dirty easily and also do not hinder ventilation.
The skin under your beard suffers far too much than what can be counteracted with skincare products. Drink plenty of water or massage and moisturise your beard with oil or a cream to ensure that your skin is getting the hydration it needs. Also, increase your intake of protein-rich foods for stronger facial hair.
As beards tend to accumulate a lot of dirt and grime which seep into the skin as well, exfoliating is the best way to ensure that your pores are unblocked. Exfoliating helps in getting a better-looking beard as well. Do once a week to grow a healthy beard.
