Taking Care of Your Beard
A beard is not a Chia Pet. You don’t just add water and let it go, unless you want to look like your neighborhood’s Chia Pet. Real beardsmen – those growing lush, shiny, healthy beards not offensive to anyone who comes near – know that having a beard is a responsibility. You have to take care of your beard for it to look great on you. The key to taking care of your beard is using quality beard care products.
Below are some pointers of grooming and facial hair care. Remember these aspects of facial hair grooming using quality beard care products as directed by their labels and your beard will look its best.
Keep it clean
Facial hair needs to be regularly cleansed or it starts to look like roadkill. Use quality beard care products to keep your beard clean, like Edwin Jagger Beard Wash. Never use regular shampoo or soap, as these will dry your delicate facial skin and the facial hair, itself. Always ensure you rinse all wash residue using only warm water. Hot water is also drying.
Nourish your beard
Particularly if your beard is coarse or unruly, using a good beard oil will restore moisture and make your facial hair appear healthy, well-groomed and refined. It will also encourage healthy growth so your beard will become its best. Edwin Jagger Beard Oil is made of natural and plant derived ingredients, so it is great for your facial hair and does not contain chemicals to strip or dry the beard or underlying skin.
Keep it well-manicured
Just like the hedges on your front lawn, an unkempt beard will become a thinned-out, gawky, scraggly mass of confusion. The difference is that your hedges are not with you everywhere you go and most people don’t form an impression of you according to how your boxwood bushes look.
A badly maintained beard does not just look bad. It also feels bad to anyone who comes near for a kiss or a moment of cheek-to-cheek intimacy. Unless you want to live like a monk, you need to keep your beard well-maintained and trimmed using quality beard care products.
Gillette Mach3 razors have long been loved for a close, comfortable shave. They are great for cleaning up the edges of your beard on cheeks, jawline and neck. This is something you will want to do daily for your best face forward. Use a quality shaving soap or a shaving cream like Taylor of Bond Street Sandalwood Shaving Cream to protect your skin and get the most out of the experience.
Other shaving essential care products you will want to keep handy for great beard maintenance include beard trimming scissors, a beard comb, mustache comb and shaving cream brush.
