What You’re Doing That Bearded Men Secretly HATE!

So, summer again… It’s officially that time of year when bearded men begin thinking of the blasphemous shaving-razor to alleviate themselves of the struggles having a beard in hot/humid weather brings.

First, put that f*ing razor down. 

Good.

Now listen to this, because there are some things that you need to watch out for if you want that beard of yours lookin’ good and feelin‘ healthy come winter time…

FIGHT THE HARSH SUNLIGHT

There’s a good chance you’ll be spending a lot more time outside in the coming months, which is great for your mental health, but not necessarily great for your beard!

Overexposure to the sun is easy to measure on your face and back, as your skin dries out and begins to peel; but most people don’t realize that the sun can dry out and damage your hair as well. Spending just a few hours out in the hot summer sun can dry up the natural oils that keep your beard healthy and full.

Keep your beard hydrated with oils and balms, otherwise you could end up with a wiry mess come winter!

SALTWATER & THE DREADED BEACH-BEARD

There’s no doubt saltwater does have some great properties for your skin and hair, but in small doses. Like the sun, saltwater dries things out; that’s great for oily skin, but too much saltwater can quickly change the properties of your hair.

Next time you take a dip in the ocean, take notice to how your beard feels after you towel dry it off. You’ll notice it isn’t as smooth and soft as it was, and that’s because the saltwater stripped it of its natural oils.

So, there aren’t really any preventative options to keep your beard protected from seawater, but after your summer swims, try and massage in a little beard oil as soon as you can…

Also, this includes pool water as well! Chlorine is worse than saltwater when it comes to drying out your skin and hair, so I would recommend rinsing off in a shower soon after your morning laps.

THE SEASON OF SWEAT

Look, there’s no doubt you’ll be getting hot and sweaty with the approaching warm weather. If you’ve got a big bushy beard, you’ll have a tougher time than most when it comes to keeping your beard clean and dry.

Although sweat is natural, it’s not great for your beard. Your beard hangs at the lowest point of your head, which means it collects all the dripping sweat from your hair and face. That sweat pooling down at the end of your beard carries all the hair-product and sunscreen you’ve used that day, so it’s important to wash your beard regularly.

In this case, you might be showering a little more often than you would in cooler months, so try and pick up a beard shampoo and conditioner that won’t be too harsh on your hair/skin if you’re washing out the toxins daily.

There you have it, beard-bros.

Stay cool this summer and take care of our mane.
