No-Shave November: Beard Grooming Tips
November 06, 2015


Celebrating No Shave November or Movember? Don’t forget to take care of your skin underneath the hair by following these tips!

Throw out your bar of soap

Soap will dehydrate and dry out skin and it will make the beard become itchy and flakey. A gentle cleanser is also going to condition your beard.

What to useA gentle foaming cleanser.

Toss the aftershave.

If you are prone to breakout or have sensitive skin, try using an astringent in place of an aftershave. Aftershaves are loaded with perfumes and ingredients like oil of bergamot, which can irritate and dry out your skin.

What to use Instead, look for an astringent with calming and soothing ingredients to help control the oils.

Soften and condition.

Just like soft skin, a soft beard is more appealing. No one likes an untamed mane or the feeling of a Brillo Pad on their face.

What to useFind a spray-on moisturizer with ingredients like seaweed that will work double duty to condition your beard and skin, and prevent buildup of flaky, dead skin cells.

Choose beard wax or oil wisely.

If you use a beard wax or oil make sure it doesn’t have any ingredients that can clog your pores, or transfer to whoever you are kissing!  Some waxes and oils only coat the hair and don’t actually do anything for the skin or the hair follicle itself.

What to useAn oil containing a skin and hair softening ingredient, like Mafura Oil, is great to use, as Mafura Oil is rich in essential fatty acids, helping to alleviate dry skin, and improve elasticity. It also has antimicrobial properties, and won’t clog pores or leave the skin or beard greasy.
