Winter can be a tough season on your beard. Low humidity and harsh elements can dry out your hair and skin. This can cause your skin to become irritated, dry, and brittle.
You definitely want to step up your beard and skin care routine during the winter months. With a few changes to your daily routine, your beard and skin will continue to look awesome and healthy. Here are a few tips we put together for you.
1. Cut Out The Hot Water
In the winter months, taking hot showers and not using moisturizer afterwards can create cracks on the surface of your skin. So it’s safe to say it’s best to take cooler showers and make sure to moisturize your skin. In addition hot water can strip your facial hair and skin of its natural oils. You definitely don’t want that!
2. Increase Moisture
To help prevent skin and facial hair dryness use a humidifier and increase your water intake. Simply drink an extra glass or two of water a day. Doing this will help add moisture into your body. In addition humidifiers are an excellent way to add moisture back into your home, if you’re blasting the heat. Adding these tips to your daily routine will benefit both your skin and your beard.
3. Co-Wash More
By adding a co-wash to your beard care regimen this winter, you can help combat dried out and brittle facial hair. Simply use a co-wash product in between your beard washing sessions. This will help to deep condition your beard and keep it moisturized this winter.
4. Moisturize More Often
Moisturizing is the key to a healthy beard care routine. Here are some excellent products you should use:
- Beard oil – You should already be applying beard oil during the day and/or night, so simply add an extra daily beard oil application during the winter months. This will help keep your beard and the skin beneath healthy and extra moisturized.
Pro Tip: after you apply beard oil, rub the left over oil from your hands on your arms and legs. Our beard oil contains natural oils that are not only excellent for your beard, but in addition have amazing skin benefits.
- Beard balm – Use a beard balm that contains beeswax after putting on beard oil. This will help to lock in moisturize.
- Beard butter – Beard butter can be applied daily for light styling and its deep conditioning properties leaving your beard soft and manageable. Our beard & body butters contain shea butter and mango butter combined with carrier oils that are specifically formulated for both your hair and skin. This deep conditioning product will Leave your beard and skin moisturized and super soft.
5. Cover it up
It may look pretty awesome to be outside in frigid temperatures with icicles hanging off your beard, but that doesn’t help with winter beard care. Next time you’re outside in freezing weather, cover your beard with a scarf or bandanna and wipe off the rain, snow, or ice to keep it from drying out. Snow and ice can leave your beard brittle and prone to breakage.
Now that you’re ready for winter, you can keep your beard and skin looking its best all season. Just stick to these few tips and your skin and beard will thank you!
