Facial hair – especially your beard – takes a lot of abuse! From eating to facing weather elements, the hair on your face needs attention just like the hair on your head. Keep these tips in mind on how to put your best beard face forward all year long.
Wash, wash: Lukewarm water will help open the pores on your face that can get clogged from oils and products that you put into your beard. Pair lukewarm water with a soap specific to facial hair or beards. Try to really get a lather going. Massage the soapy water into your facial hair for a good minute, really working into your beard to dig deep and get to your skin, which doesn’t breathe as much with hair covering it all the time.
Rinse, rinse: Rinse out all of the lather and soap thoroughly as you do not want any residue left behind in your strands. It is a good idea to rinse twice with warm water just to make sure you get all of the soap out.
Condition: Facial hair tends to be wiry and coarse. A little bit of conditioner can help keep it soft and more manageable. Conditioner needs a few minutes to work, so give it time to really soak in before you rinse it out.
Dry: A microfiber towel can be a gentle alternative to a traditional towel as it does not tug at your hairs as much. Pat dry and rub gently to get most of the moisture out of your beard.
Style: Finally, use your favorite bear oil or other product to help style and manage your hairs for the rest of the day. Just a few drops or small amount of the product is best. Take time to really work it into the hairs and wrap up by styling or shaping it.
