Regular washing is necessary
You keep your hair clean while shampooing it daily and your beard also needs that same amount of love and affection from you. If you are not able to wash your beard in a proper way daily, at least don’t forget to shampoo it a few times a week. Use a good quality beard shampoo or you can also use a face wash which won’t take away the moistures from your beard and face. Remember to put some moisturizer on your face and beard if you feel dry after shampooing it. You can also go all-natural while rubbing sea salt or sugar to get rid of the dead skin.
Comb your beard daily
Once you have a lengthy-lonely beard in your face, you do need to start combing it regularly to make it look tidy. It is also necessary to comb it on a daily basis to maintain your desired beard style. Besides, it is also easier to groom your beard if you comb and detangle your beard in a regular manner. You also need to comb your moustache besides your fuzz. Start underneath the lower lip and comb downward to have a great-looking beard. It is also better to a buy a nice-quality beard brush to maintain your muff.
Right beard for your face shape
Don’t just look at the catalog and start growing a beard like that model on it. You need to consider your face shape. There are several beard styles which go absolutely well with round face shapes but look horrendous if you want to sport it with an edgy face. So, choose your beard style according to your facial shapes. You can also request your salon guy to give you a customized beard style. They will definitely do the trick for you. Don’t forget to fade your neck and have clean border lines around your neck and sideburns.
Trim it in a proper way
Always make sure that your beard is completely dry before you opt for a trimming. Besides, you can also go for a proper-size clipper to trim down your fuzz to have a much cleaner-looking face and also to achieve an even cut. You also need to choose your clipper guard properly according to your desired beard style and length. Start with a shorter guard when you have a low-length beard, and then increase the guard size according to your beard growth. You may have to use the scissors too to get a more-tidier look beside using the trimmer.
Follow these steps of maintenance and have a great-looking beard this year. And, don’t forget to raise some funds for the No Shave November campaign if you really care for men’s health and also want to join the battle against cancer. Happy beards, folks!
