Buckle up for the best, most insightful tips on how to take care of your beard. Not only this, we’re also here to help show you how you can grow a beard that best fits your facial features. 

Searching for a new look? Here’s what you should go for:

  • Beards compliment most face shapes. For example, say you have a diamond-shaped face, one with wide cheekbones and a narrow forehead and jawline. The goal here should be to keep facial hair on the chin to offset your cheekbones.
  • Heart-shaped faces or those with smaller face shape should know that growing a beard will only make your face appear smaller. In this case, opt for a more rough and ready look. A goatee will leave more length in the chin and the mustache will add volume and depth to the jawline.
  • Beards add protection. Whether it’s the sun’s hot rays, common colds, asthma or hay fever, beards protect. Growing a beard can help fight against these problems by adding a layer of protection to your face.

    With a beard, it is important to have the right products to keep your beard looking and feeling healthy.

  • Beard soap- using beard soap will help clean the facial hair. Regular soaps will dry the skin underneath and lead to beard dandruff.
  • Beard oil- whether it’s a spray or serum, beard oils come in different forms and smells. These products will help keep the skin underneath your beard moisturized.
  • Beard balm- apply beard balm daily to avoid a rough scratchy beard. Beard balms help bring smoothness to beards.

Perhaps the best part of having a beard: less shaving. With growing a beard, you can nearly say goodbye to the straight razor.
