In case you haven’t noticed, the most popular male trend right now is facial hair. Beards and mustaches have become a style that years from now will be an iconic representation of our time. From a certain camo-clad reality TV family with enviable beards to worldwide beard competitions- it is clear that facial hair is experiencing celebrity status.
With all the hairy faces strutting around, beard grooming products and beard care regimens have also gained popularity. It is in style to have a well-groomed beard or fashionable scruff, not to have what looks like a grossly unkempt animal growing on your face.
Our recommended protocol for the best men’s skin and beard care:
- Cleanse: Use a gentle cleanser and warm water to wash your face every night, and morning if it’s not too drying. We recommend Image Skincare’s Ormedic Facial Cleanser.
- Shampoo: For those with especially thick and course beards, a cleanser will not be enough to get a really deep clean. When showering, work in a good lather with your shampoo to clean out all the sweat and environmental pollutants from the day. Always pat dry, gently.
- Exfoliate: Men, you should exfoliate twice a week to gently scrub away excess oil, dirt and dead skin. When dead skin builds up it can prevent facial hairs from growing outward, which leads to ingrown hairs. We recommend Ojavan’s Detoxifying & Exfoliating Pre-Shave Mineral Mud Mask to massage onto skin and beard before shaving.
- Moisturize: After cleansing/shaving, it is important to restore moisture, and refresh and calm irritated skin. We recommend Ojavan’s Skin Moisturizing After-Shave Cream with Argon Oil.
- Beard Oil: For a smoother, shinier, healthier beard you will want to massage beard oil into your facial hair, daily. Good beard oil will contain coconut, jojoba and/or vitamin E oils with added essential oils for scent. Ojavan’s unscented Pre-Shave Moisturizing Oil is great for a close smooth shave. To use as beard oil, add a couple of drops of Ojavan’s Beautiful Skin Blend essential oil and massage thoroughly through your beard. It will smell great and care for your skin’s needs.
