Don't Rush the Whiskers!
You must resist the urge to trim, prune and style your beard for the first four to six weeks. Let your facial hairs grow in evenly and pick a style that suits your face and the thickness of your growth.
Always use organic beard care products to keep your beard from getting itchy, especially in the early stages, and scrub it every day with a mild soap. Afterward, treat your face to a rich beard oil which will moisturize your skin and tame your whiskers. Lovely Beard has created an all-organic line of handmade beard oils and balms, including Mandarin Cedarwood Oil that makes you smell like a sexy woodsman, and the latest addition to their collection of the world’s best beard care products, Bourbon Beard Oil – as manly as it gets!
Trim Your Beard Weekly
Even if you plan on growing out a lush ZZ-Top or Action Bronson beard, maintenance and trimming is essential for a commanding look. Invest in a salon-quality beard trimmer, like the new Panasonic Wet and Dry Cordless Electric Beard and Hair Trimmer, which helps you sculpt your facial hair delicately, as well as shear off thick patches, for under $60.
If you’re diligent about grooming and styling your beard from the get-go, don’t be surprised if women you hardly know ask if they can touch your beard.
And if they do, say yes.
