Beard care tips
Craig the barber shows us how to keep the skin under our beards in tiptop condition
Oily skin, dry skin and everything in the middle… we all have one or the other, and it changes from season to season.
Depending on the weather conditions your facial skin will react to protect itself. In dryer climates your skin may feel a bit oily, where in more humid climates the opposite reaction may be more common.
So how do you care for the skin underneath if there is a beard on top?
Many of you would say that there’s no need since it’s covered by hair. But on the contrary, this skin is just as important as the rest of your face. Here’s how you should be looking after it.
An exfoliation of the skin helps to rid the face of dead skin cells while allowing the younger skin cells to reach the surface. This helps to keep the skin looking and feeling young and healthy.
For bearded men with normal to oily skin, it is even more important to make sure that a facial exfoliation regimen is adopted at least twice a week. A careful focus on the bearded area will help to remove dead skin and oils that can build-up and create skin irritation and, for many, acne.
For the guys with the unfortunate challenge of dry skin, exfoliation is still important. Also, making sure that your beard is not only shampooed but conditioned is very important for health of the beard, and the skin underneath.
For all skin types, adopting a moisturizer will help to balance the skin of the oily guy and provide relief with an extra boost of moisture for the drier bearded gentleman.
