As a bearded man, you should want to keep your beard in the best possible shape. For most men, this means one thing and only one thing – beard oil. Lots of beard oil and lots of oil.

But we're going to let you in on a very important secret: no amount of beard oil can give you the perfect, healthy beard you're looking for if you don't follow the golden rules of basic beard hygiene. Cleanliness is the foundation of a good beard, so slackening on a proper hygiene routine can make your beard's goals difficult. To make sure your beard reaches its full potential, here's what you need to know when it comes to beard hygiene.

Growing a full beard can be challenging but grooming it also brings in another set of challenges.

TIP 1: Wash Your Beard 

Like a beardsman, your facial hair is getting grungy from time to time. If left unaddressed, an increase in daily determination and natural sebum oil could cause havoc on the pores and skin beneath your beard, which could lead to skin irritability or to spotting. That's why it's the first and most important tip for proper facial hair to wash!

To get your facial beard cleaned up, it's important to wash it with normal water. But be selective about your water temperature. Coldwater may not be the best option, as it tends to reduce the effectiveness of your facial beard wash. And very hot water is drying out the locks of follicles. Like Goldilocks, the temperature in the middle is perfect. Lukewarm drinking water improves blood flow and opens pores, ensuring that every wash is effective.

Expert tip: Do not wash your beard with body flushes, face washes or regular soap. These cleansers are very powerful and usually tend to strip your facial beard of its natural oils and splendor. Instead, try using a mild soap, a cleanser or a beard wash. They are designed to gently cleanse and preserve your fuzz while energizing the skin beneath your facial beard.

TIP 2: Keep it Clean and Moisturized

Harsh conditions tend to drain natural oils from your face, leading to dry and split ends of beard hair. Consider using a moisturizer or facial hair oil to keep your facial beard soft and healthy (beard oils have been used for decades to help mimic natural skin oil). You could obviously also use natural herbal oils. Coconut lubricate, for example, is widely known for its ability to moisturize and nourish hair and skin.

Pro tip: Do you know that beard balm is also a great way to moisturize and nourish your facial beard. High-quality balms contain the best natural ingredients, including coconut oil, shea butter and vitamin Elizabeth. These ingredients are included not only to nourish facial follicles and nourish the skin, but also to tame stray hair and to condition your facial hair.

TIP 3:Trim it

Work out keeping your beard healthy is taking care of it regularly. Grooming and maintenance may not be your thing, but it helps to tame the split ends. And the women dig it.

  • Pro tip: Lean your beard while it can dry. This will help you get an improved span estimate. Also brush or comb your beard daily to help distribute any beard oils evenly.
