Moisturize the Beard
A healthy and flawless beard requires you to take care of it. Moisturizing the beard is one of the most important aspects of this process, and since facial hair is born from the skin, this is precisely where we must pay our attention when caring for the beard: sanitize the skin under the beard, nourish it, and hydrate it.
The problem is that the length of the beard complicates access to the skin … Is it true that you can’t think of how to put cream under a long beard? You would end up with globs of cream all over your beard, and it would not get to your skin. The composition and viscosity of each men’s skincare product have a specific objective. Here Burnt Whiskey experts tell you what products you can use to hydrate your beard and the skin under it.
Products To Hydrate Men’s Skin:
The creams are mainly designed for skin without a beard, or with a few days beard to help hydration in the first days of growth and avoid flaking.
Beard oils are liquid. This allows you to easily apply it on the skin, whatever your beard. Whether you are shaved, or if you have a beard of a few days or several years, its texture will allow you to expand it and pass through the layer of hair to reach the skin.
To apply the oil, pour several drops on the palm of your hand, rub both hands together, and distribute the product on your beard from root to tip. Starting at the neck, work your way up to the tips on the chin and work your way up to the cheeks. Gently massage the skin with your fingertips, and pat your beard with your hands soaked in the oil.
The beard balm has a different texture and is specially formulated to take care of beards 3 or more fingers in length. As we have explained to you on other occasions, beard balm helps you style and shape your beard while conditioning it. Unlike oil, we only apply the balm on the beard, not on the skin. A good beard balm should hydrate your facial hair, nourish the hair follicle by capillary action, provide a certain hold so you can style it, and give your beard a thick appearance.
