Beards are trending again. A recent survey found that after a heavy stubble, a full beard is the most attractive facial hair styles that a man can possess. Getting a perfectly full beard is not achieved easily and will require some TLC or tender love and care. There are countless products you will need to keep your beard looking it’s best. This list can include a good trimmer, beard oils, beard wash, beard wax, a comb and the topic of our article, beard balms.
For a long time, men have treated their beards like self-sufficient beings, rather than showing them the same care and attentiveness they show on their hair and rest of their bodies. Beards require the same upkeep that your hair does. And after the right cut and style, one of the most crucial parts of your beard care regimen should include beard balms.
What is a Beard Balm?
Beard balm is a mixture of different ingredients that you apply and leave in to condition, moisturize, condition, soften, and style your beard. This is done through use of some main ingredients and few that change by brand. Most beard balms contain these main ingredients:
These are the main ingredients in ensuring you achieve your goal of having a well-styled, well-groomed, well-conditioned, and soft beard that your partner won’t mind having against their skin. The essential oils also serve the extra function of providing an all-natural and great scent to your beard. While synthetic fragrance oils can irritate your skin and beard, essential oil will do the same job with completely natural oils.
Why you need to use it!
As men we are raised to be rough, tough and self-sustaining. But our bodies are exposed to several outside factors that we take precautions against. When it is cold outside you put on a thicker shirt or a jacket. So why do we feel like our beards are not worthy of the same extra effort and care? Truth of the matter is, beards are a part of our body and we need to take care of them like we do all other parts of our physical and mental systems.
Beard balms are the go-to products for the styling, protection, nurturing, and comforting our beards. The combination of butters, waxes, and oils will take complete care of your beard, and feed them the things your beard is begging for. Not only is the balm crucial to your beards health but appearance as well. If you want the kind of beard you can be proud of, you MUST take care of it.
How do you use it?
Honestly, this is one of the easier beard products to use. As with all products, it is recommended that you wash and dry your beard thoroughly before use. Most products simply instruct you take a generous amount of the beard balm and apply to your beard, starting from the neck and moving up. Once you reach the top, now work your way down and spread the balm evenly to your tips and roots. This allows for the balm to also nourish the skin at the base of the hair follicles. This nourishment will facilitate a healthy growth of your beard.
When used correctly, beard balm will keep your beard strong, shiny, healthy and help you in growing the beard length of your dreams. Combine the balm with a proper electronic razor, beard oils and waxes to achieve the perfect style and health of your natural facial accessory.
