Let's get into it...
1. Establish a Routine.
Steps in your beard care routines (morning, day or night) will differ depending on the beard style you’re aiming for. At minimum, your own personal beard routine needs to include washing your beard regularly and applying beard oil daily. You’ve undoubtedly heard of the benefits to your beard of moisturizing your facial hair and the skin underneath, but these benefits will only occur over time. Consistency is key.
For more styling, you can either apply heat or beard balm. For more nourishment, add some beard butter into the mix. However, don’t forget to give yourself some leeway to experiment with different options. Institute regularity, without rigidity, and have fun with it. As in life in general, try to live in the moment and adapt your routines accordingly.
2. Less is More.
At some point, too much product hinders your beard. It’s understandable, you’re excited about that new beard oil you just got in the mail, you love how it smells and you throw in a more than enough amount in your beard. No biggie. However, if you turn this practice into habit, you can cumulate too much and might block your skin’s pores, ending up with beard pimples, not cool! Same thing for beard wash, there’s no use in getting your beard cleaner than clean!
Start with a certain amount of product, see how it feels. Next time you apply some, try using a bit less. If that’s too little, slightly increase the amount the time after that. So on and so forth, until you find that sweet balanced amount that provides the perfect comfort zone for your beard. Be in tuned with your needs and respect your limits! On top of that, using just what you need will make what you have last longer, and probably end up saving you some money in the process. Bonus!
3. Take Care of Your Skin.
Taking care of your beard is part of taking care of yourself, but also means maintaining the health of your skin underneath that glorious mane of yours! One operation that greatly helps with this is EXFOLIATION. Don’t believe me? Just ask the women in your life about the fulfilment exfoliation brings. It’s just one of those things that women have known for ages and that men are just getting to discover... Basically, it consists of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, and yeah, these are definitely present underneath your beard.
Once a week, try taking a good beard comb and apply hard friction with its teeth all over the surface of your face while washing your beard in the shower. This procedure cleans out all those pores thoroughly and stimulates hair growth, making room for better beard health!
