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.
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:
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.
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.
