1.- Clean your beard
To have a healthy beard Burnt Whiskey Beard Co experts give you some pro tips, follow a basic cleaning procedure. If you don’t want to buy specific beard products, water and neutral soap is recommended. Cleaning should be done daily. Moisten the beard enough with water and apply neutral soap, let it act for a minute and then remove it, the beard must be completely dry, since any moisture is the cause of a possible infection.
Most of us bearded men leave our beards unkempt, and even more so when we party, we even try to use the same hair shampoo, we are making a serious mistake since our face has a different resistance to these products and it may be that we generate irritation. It is best to use a shampoo specially developed for beards, baby shampoo or neutral soap. It is recommended to wash the beard daily.
2.- Take care of the skin under the beard
To avoid any type of irritation or moisture problem on the skin (this is usually the most common problem with beards), it is preferable to use Thermal Water and a facial cream of your choice. This process is usually applied before any finished product (oil, balm or wax).
When the beard grows, it will always have uncontrolled growth, so giving it a weekly trim is good for us to have a beard always under control, shaping it is a very good idea.
Once the beard is clean and trimmed, we must bring it combed. I recommend the application of wax, it is a trick that very few of us apply, despite the fact that it is highly recommended since, just like with the hair, being able to keep the beard in place is essential for our look. You have to take a little wax with your fingers, warm it up by rubbing it with your hands and apply it directly to the facial hair. This will leave your beard soft and pliable for styling. To keep the beard hydrated we must apply an oil, the most recommended is Argon or it can be an oil developed specifically for beards.
5.- Eat carefully
How to keep food out of the beard? Eat in small portions/bites, clean after each bite with a napkin (restaurants will be happy if you use too many napkins) and at the end wash with water and completely dry the beard.
6.- Bad odors
The smell of cigarettes and alcohol is intense, although sometimes we are not the ones who drink or smoke. It is recommended to wash it daily.
7.- Balanced diet
Sound weird? A balanced diet creates a balance in our body for our skin and facial/body hair. Vitamin B has favorable results in strengthening the scalp.
