New year, new beard! With 2023 in full swing, it’s the perfect time to adopt healthy beard-care habits to grow and revitalize your beard for the remainder of the cold months and beyond. Proper care will help cover a lot of bases to encourage sustained beard growth, healthier skin, and robust facial hair. Improving your beard-care regime can certainly be a resolution, but to keep the pressure of new expectations low you can also think of the following tips as simply devoting a little more effort to grow and maintain your beard like you could at any time of year.
All in all, to help look and feel your best with a healthy and full beard it’s important to make sure you’re adopting a few simple habits that can last you a lifetime. Below are just a few ways that can help you start the new year strong toward improved beard health, style, and growth.
Use a Dedicated Beard Wash
Whether you’re growing out a new beard or maintaining your current one, it’s the perfect time to introduce a beard wash into your beard care routine. Using a dedicated beard wash is one of the best ways to clear excess oil build up, take out any dirt particles, and ensure your beard is clean and healthy. Especially if you have more oily skin, applying a beard wash every 1-2 days will help prevent too much oil from building up in your facial hair. For people with drier skin, it’s usually a good idea to incorporate a beard wash every 3-4 days, then directly afterward using a beard conditioner and beard oil to keep your skin underneath hydrated.
Brush Out Your Beard Routinely
Taking a few minutes to brush your beard delivers a lot of benefits toward improved beard health and comfort. For example, brushing with our Cherry Military Brush is a great way to remove dead skin cells and any particles trapped in your beard, all while helping to style and straighten your beard hairs. The ideal time to brush your beard is as you're applying beard oil. Essentially, the act of brushing helps spread the beard oil to all the right places by pushing the oil deeper into your beard so it can reach the skin underneath. Usually, brushing once per day is the most you’ll need.
Moisturize With Beard Oil & Beard Butter
Using beard oil as part of your beard care routine is a great way to keep your hair moisturized and clean. Beard oil is perfect for any hair type and any level of hair growth, but perhaps its most popular use is to reduce itching and flaking. Whether you’re in the early stages of hair growth or you’re just trying to keep your beard on the shorter side, itching and irritation is very common and our Fresh Beards beard oil can help. Additionally, beard butter is another great tool for keeping your beard looking full and comfortable with added hydration. Beard butter works as a thorough conditioner to soften and moisturize your beard and skin. The way it works is by introducing natural butters that get absorbed into your beard hair, which can give your beard a richer appearance.
Update Your Beard’s Style
At some point, even the longest and fullest beards can start to lose your interest. This is natural and likely the result of sticking with just one beard style for too long or simply rocking a style you no longer enjoy. While few things are as manly and personal as great beard style, even finely-cropped businessman beards and more rustic and full styles can make you feel like it’s time for a change. It’s possible that you’re more interested in sporting a mustache or a goatee, or even growing out your beard more than you’ve done in the past. The great news is that, for any kind of facial hair you want to grow, Fresh Beards has top-shelf products like mustache waxes and beard balms to ensure your hair stays healthy, moisturized, and comfortable.
