Skincare Tactics for Bearded Fellas

by Vintage Grooming™ September 03, 2017 2 Comments

When it comes to keeping your beard looking its best, most men forget to take care of the skin underneath their fuzzy facades. Although your hairy exterior is one of your defining qualities when it comes to your physical appearance, it's not just about getting burly. Your skin and body need a bit of attention, too, if you want to make the most of your manly accessory. Don't worry -- we're not going to talk about frills and face masks, but that doesn't mean we're okay with you neglecting your skin, either. After all, healthy skin sets the foundation for an awesome-looking beard.

1. Know Your Skin Type

Skincare can sound obnoxiously complicated, particularly if you don't dig a daily regimen. If you don't use the right products, however, you could cause your skin to dry out like an unwanted piece of leather.

Here's a quick run-down of the things you need to know to keep your skin healthy and clean:

  • Dry skin feels tight and gets dry easily. You may experience flakiness. Combat this unpleasantness with skincare products designed to moisturize dehydrated skin. When you're searching for beard solutions, be sure on the lookout for natural products infused with Vitamin E and Castor Oil.
  • Sensitive skin often requires special products like tea tree oil to prevent unwanted breakouts and stinging sensations.
  • Oily skin is often prone to breakouts and shininess. If this describes your skin, shoot for products that diffuse skin oils naturally so you don't completely dry out your sensitive facial skin.
  • Combination skin is a little oily and a little dry. There are products that help you keep your oily T-zone at bay while moisturizing the rest of your face.
  • Normal skin is well-balanced, but it still needs to be maintained, too.

2. Do Your Daily Duties

Wash your face morning and night with products fit for your skin type. Don't get lazy and use your beard shampoo for your whole face, though, because even the most natural beard shampoo ingredients can be harsh when used directly on the skin. Beard shampoo is meant for your facial hair and nothing else.

3. Exfoliate Your Skin

This includes the surface beneath your beard. Avoid products that contain alcohol, as they can dry your skin out. To prevent beard dandruff, gently rub your exfoliating scrub into your beard, and massage it into the layer of skin that holds your beard's follicles. Make sure you follow up your cleansing routine with a high-quality moisturizer to prevent flaking and unsightly aging.
