    Essential beard care tips


    Growing a great beard is something to be proud of. But the journey doesn’t end once the desired length or style has been achieved. After growth comes maintenance – and keeping your beard looking smart and stylish is no mean feat. Here’s everything you need to know about how to take care of a beard.

    5 tips for proper beard care and maintenance

    1. When caring for a beard, remember that it’s always on the move

    The first thing is to recognize that your beard and mustache are always growing, so your perfectly trimmed facial hair is always just a few short days away from a return to the wild. The general rule with beard care is that the shorter the hair, the more often it needs to be trimmed. If you have a closely-trimmed style, make time every other day to keep it sharp. If you have a full beard, once or twice a week may be enough.

    2. Cleanliness is key for proper beard care

    Neglect has consequences. If your morning routine is just a quick splash of water over your face, your beard may complain that it isn’t getting enough attention. Keep facial hair looking and smelling pleasant by shampooing it when you take a shower, and adding a touch of conditioner if your hair is coarse or rough.

    3. Tame unruly facial hair with a few beard care products

    Facial hair is fairly unique. For some men, it grows neatly downwards, while for others it rebelliously sticks straight out. If yours does the latter, dab on some beard oil and comb the hairs downwards to take the edge off as part of your daily beard care. Beard oil softens the hairs, while pomade can be used to shape your beard or mustache into your chosen style. You don’t have to fill your bathroom with dozens of expensive products – just cover the basics.

    4. Get the right beard care tools for the job

    If you’re serious about caring for your beard (and looking good) your bathroom toolkit should include a trimmer (including a trimmer comb and a precision attachment) and a rotary shaver. Some tools have several different features, enabling you to do more than one job with the same device.

    5. Caring for your beard means leaving it be

    To preserve cleanliness, avoid touching or stroking your beard too much, and try to avoid giving it food. Trim the hairs around your lips, and master eating and drinking without getting anything stuck in the region around your mouth.

    Finally, and perhaps most importantly, wear your beard and/or mustache with pride. You didn’t grow yourself a beard to hide it under a bushel.
