4 Beard Grooming tips for summertime heat

Summer is a difficult time, especially for those with new beards. What made perfect sense in the winter may not sound that great as the temperatures start to rise. A beard can actually help keep you cool by blocking the sun from your face which acts as a natural sun protector. Before you decide to shave and undo all that hard work, check out our tips to keep you cool and looking good:

1. Stay Hydrated

Stay hydrated. A hydrated body means your beard is hydrated, too. Keeping yourself hydrated prevents beard hair breakage. We recommend drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day.

The summer heat will make you sweat more, which means more stickiness and wetness in your facial area. Keep your beard fresh by washing it regularly with a Sulfate free Beard Wash and moisturized with Beard Balm and Beard Oil, especially if you’re going to be outside in warm weather. ​Beard hair is coarser than hair on the rest of your body, so it’s important to keep it hydrated.

3. Sunscreen

The sun’s rays break down hair cuticles and drys out hair strands which can make your beard dry and brittle. We recommend using a sunscreen in your beard that is formulated for hair. Sunscreen will help keep your hair soft and smooth no matter how hot and dry it is outside.

4. Rinse after swimming

Chlorine and salt strips your beard hair of its natural oil (sebum), leaving it dry and brittle. Chlorine can also damage hair follicles which can stop or slow facial hair growth. So after swimming in the ocean or a swimming pool, make sure to rinse off your beard. After rinsing and drying your beard, follow up with a few drops of beard oil
