Winter is fast approaching, which means it’s time to stock up on some essential winter beard-care products.
Winter is the enemy of beard-havers worldwide. The harsh brumal temperatures can do a number on your facial hair, drying it out and leaving you with itchy and uncomfortable skin underneath.
You don’t have to accept a lackluster beard and raw, scratchy skin for the whole winter, though—you just need to step up your beard-care routine. Here are four must-have products to care for your beard this winter. These products will help you keep your beard as full and healthy as it feels and looks in the summertime.
Balms are jam-packed with nutrients, natural oils, butters, and waxes that will keep your beard healthy and moisturized, making it much easier to style and sculpt.
Balms sit on the surface of your beard hair, acting as both a moisturizer and a protective shield against the nippy air. If you don’t use balms already, you should start using them this winter!
Combing your beard isn’t a necessity, but it’s so incredibly beneficial that it’s worth doing anyway. It will keep your beard looking full and neat. Regular combing can even prevent painful ingrown hairs!
And the best part—combing your beard helps moisturizers and other beard-care products absorb into the hair and skin. That’s because the combing motion straightens the individual strands and coats them thoroughly with the product.
Don’t use any old comb to comb your beard, though. The hair on your face is completely different from the hair on your head. Instead, use a specialized beard comb or brush.
Beard wash is another must-have product to care for your beard this winter. Why use beard wash when you can just use regular shampoo on your beard? Well, because beard wash is designed specially to leave some of the natural oils on your beard intact, whereas regular shampoos wash them all away. A lack of oil can lead to dry skin and split ends.
Not only does beard wash leave behind natural oils, but it also helps other beard products absorb into the hair follicles by removing dirt and grime notorious for impeding absorption.
Your skin is more prone to drying out in the cold weather. For most people, moisturizing with a lotion provides a quick solution, but smearing lotion into your beard in the hopes that a few measly dollops will reach the skin underneath isn’t exactly practical.
Luckily, that’s where a good beard oil can help. Since oil is thinner and more lightweight than lotions and creams, it can reach the skin beneath your beard more easily. It also absorbs quickly, which means no uncomfortable residual greasiness or stickiness.
Your beard deserves the best. Show it some love with Max Green Alchemy’s cruelty-free beard oil, made from natural ingredients and certified vegan. It keeps your beard hydrated and can even help reduce stubborn itchiness.
