The beard - not only aesthetic but also protection and even warmth for the facial skin in the colder months. Okay, joking aside. The full beard isn't just for warmth and strokes, it's also an important, natural accessory for men. Don't wear yours as a full beard because the gaps bother you? Then stay tuned, because we have a few tips on how to cultivate your beard properly!
Stubbly beard hairs are often found on the chin, neck or cheeks. It doesn't look bad at all, but it's certainly a matter of taste - just like everything else. If you're going for a stubble-free beard, we'd advise you to use a trimmer rather than a razor. A simple trick: trim the beard hair quite short around the sideburns and towards the cheeks and only then work on the transition from neck to jaw.
Sure, you're a fan of sharp edges, especially if it's perfect as well as a seamless transition from jaw to neck. Many beard lovers prefer these contours because they give the impression of definition. Meanwhile, we know that there is no such thing as a perfect transition and that it is very difficult to achieve.
A defined transition is also not necessarily an advantage when it comes to making the beard appear fuller. Instead, invest in a beard trimmer to blend the beard hair from the jawline into the neck. The whole thing will not only look much more natural but also fuller.
The beard oil
Is your beard rather scratchy? Then it's high time for a beard growth oil. It makes the hair much softer, the beard looks healthier and the oil also takes care of the skin underneath while helping them grow in a healthy way. Here you can work with a combination of products - for example, a beard balm for the day and oil for the night.
Pit stop at the barbershop
Although we're already confident in your skills, we recommend paying your barber a visit every now and then. Not only extremely relaxing thanks to a little head massage and steam treatment, but also really nourishing. If you stay at home, it's your own fault.
Comb your beard
Caring for your beard at home probably didn't look that complicated before. Washing and trimming is child's play and part of any good beard care routine. Combing your beard, however, is just another part of it! For a good-looking and healthier beard, we recommend combing your beard with a wooden comb in the morning. Plastic is not only bad for the environment but also has an electrostatic effect on the beard.
Combing is especially important at the beginning of the growth process to bring the beard into the desired shape and to keep the hairs in check. If that's not enough, you can always use a beard balm to tame the wild growth.
Beard shampoo? Definitely!
Looking for the magic formula that delivers maximum results with minimum effort doesn't mean you can sit back and relax completely. On the contrary, your beard needs maximum attention - especially during the growth phase. So wash your beard regularly! And not with the typical 2-in-1 shower gel version, but rather with a special beard shampoo. Normal hand soap, for example, is generally a very bad idea because it not only dries out your facial skin but also your beard hair.
They are generally much drier than the hair on your head because they are less in contact with natural oils. Beard shampoos, as the name suggests, are beard-friendly and therefore contain the right ingredients. For a full beard, we recommend that you also schedule a weekly exfoliation. This way, ingrown hairs don't stand a chance and the growth of the hairs is stimulated.
