5 Tips for Beard Maintenance
You’ve decided to grow a beard, or perhaps you’ve already got one, so congratulations. A beard is a very good thing. There’s scientific evidence of a link between men with facial hair and increased confidence levels. Indeed, society has been known to find the bearded man more trustworthy, mature, and respected. But to look your best, you need to properly maintain that chin hair, so here are 5 tips to help you.
- Commit to the Process
Growing a beard takes time and taking care of your body helps you to grow a better beard. For the best results, you should get plenty of sleep, avoid excessive smoking or drinking, eat a well-balanced diet, and consider taking a vitamin supplement.
- Keep It Clean
This may sound like a no brainer, but just as your hair needs a regular wash, so does your beard. You should wash it with a mild shampoo and follow up with a good conditioner.
- Treat Your Beard Like Your Hair
Just as you use products like gels. mousse, or creams for your hair, so should you help your beard’s appearance with a good quality beard oil or balm. This will keep your beard moisturized, soft, and healthy.
- Avoid Harsh Soaps or Chemicals
NEVER WASH YOUR HAIR WITH YOUR BATH SOAP! Bath soaps are made to clean your body, not your hair or your beard, and the chemicals in them can dry out your beard.
- Groom Your Beard
You can’t look your best with a shaggy beard. Keep it under control by using a beard trimmer at least once a week. If you’re not sure how to go about trimming it, visit an upscale barber shop and have an expert stylist trim it for you and show you how to do it at home.

When it comes to men’s needs, it’s time to think bigger. And bolder. And way more moisturized and exfoliated. It’s time to recognize that men are bigger than biceps and abs. That men’s health is about more than burpees and leg days. Because men have follicles and cuticles, too. And pores. And soles. And palms.
