A Simple Guide To Healthy Beards and Skin
Keeping your beard and skin healthy need not require you to sacrifice every second of your day. It doesn’t have to be that complicated, and adhering to the following skin care routine will keep your beard, skin and loved ones equally happy. So let's get into how to grow, maintain and care for your beard!
WASH YOUR SKIN REGULARLY
Having a great beard and healthy skin starts with simply washing the skin on your face and body. Use warm water which helps to open the pores and encourages better circulation over the subdermal layer of your skin.
When using soap, try to avoid bar soap because it often contains harsh chemicals that will remove important nutrients from your skin. Instead, look for gentler soaps, without sulfates, parabens and other nasty synthetics that will rob your skin of needed moisture.
KEEP SKIN MOISTURISED
The next step is to moisturise your skin by using a small amount of lotion on your face whilst ensuring that you aren't missing any key areas. Try using a quality beard balm to for your face as the essential oils will not only keep your beard looking great, but help to nourish the skin underneath as well.
Lastly, try exfoliating two times a week. This will remove the top layer of dead skin and dirt that gets trapped against your skin during the day which helps to keep your skin healthy and fresh.
Whilst those are the basic steps for caring for your skin and beard, there are a few more tricks we can apply to really get the two looking great!
