Beginners Guide to Beard Care

The beard is an important part of every man's life. Not only does it make you look better, but it also shows your confidence and commitment to being a manly man. I've grown out my facial hair for over 10 years now and have learned some tricks along the way about how to take care of your beard properly. In this article we'll go over what you need to do in order to keep that fuzzy chin healthy and looking great!

A beard is a sign of confidence.

A beard is a sign of confidence and confidence is attractive. So, anyone who wants to attract the fairer sex should grow out their facial hair. That being said, it's not just about attracting women (though we’ll get into that later). Confidence is important for success in life and knowing how to handle yourself well in any situation, so you should work on developing your self-confidence even if you aren't trying to look good for anyone else but yourself. Confidence is also something that people admire; it's something that separates you from the crowd and makes you stand out from all those timid sheep who are just waiting for someone else to tell them what to do.

Commit to having a beard.

Beards are everywhere. They're not just a fashion statement anymore, they're an important part of self-expression. You need to be patient and make sure you love what you're doing before you commit to growing one. Don't give up! Once you get into the routine of caring for your beard, it becomes second nature and makes life more interesting. When people see it, they will notice how unique and bold it is—it's a conversation starter that can lead anywhere: from politics to sports or even fashion tips (if that's your thing).

Once you've decided that growing a beard is right for you, there are some things will help keep it looking good over time:

Buy the right products.

A quick way to make sure you’re buying products that are made for beards is to look for products with natural ingredients. This includes things like jojoba oil, castor oil and shea butter. It also means looking at the labels carefully and making sure that they contain no alcohol or other harsh chemicals that can dry out your skin.

Additionally, you should try to find products made in the USA. This will ensure that they meet all of the regulations set forth by our country and are also safer than those imported from somewhere else on earth (which could have been produced in a less controlled environment). If possible, buy a product with a money back guarantee as this makes it easier if there are any issues you aren't able to fix yourself

Wash your beard regularly, but not with your face soap!

It's important to wash your beard regularly, but not with the same face soap you use on your face. Your beard is a different beast than your skin and needs special attention! Beard wash is designed to clean without drying out or irritating sensitive skin underneath the hair. You should be using it once a day (or more if you work outside).

If you're trying to grow out that glorious fuzz on top of your chin, having a good soap for washing will help keep things healthy and moisturized while keeping dandruff at bay.

Brush your beard regularly.

A brush is an essential tool for the beard-owner. If you don’t already have one, they can be found at any department store or online retailer. The bristles should be made of boar bristle, as these are tough and help to distribute natural oils through your hair follicles.

Brush your beard in the direction of its growth with medium pressure—no hard pulling! You should brush it before and after you wash your face, as well as once a day (if possible). Beard brushes are designed to mimic the way human hands would naturally run through your facial hair; this ensures that all of your hairs get some stimulation from the brush, rather than just those on top.

Stop itching it.

Don't scratch your beard. If you do, you'll be breaking the skin and causing a lot of irritation.

Use a comb or brush to get out any tangles in your beard. You can use an actual comb or brush that's designed specifically for facial hair, but many guys just find it easier to grab a regular hairbrush and run that through their beards before they go to bed at night (that's what I do).

If you're still itching after using a comb or brush, apply some beard oil or balm (see below) to help control the itchiness in the long-term.

Trim and shape it properly.

When trimming your beard, I recommend using a good pair of scissors. You can use a comb or a trimmer to help you get the shape you want, but make sure you keep it neat and tidy. A combination of these tools works well too: if you want to trim your beard with a trimmer and then trim the edges with scissors, that's fine too!

Be proud of what you've accomplished!

It's not often that a man gets to grow a beard and feel the sense of accomplishment that comes with it. It takes time, patience, and hard work to grow a magnificent beard that is worthy of your face. You should be proud of this achievement and treat yourself like the king that you are.

By taking care of your beard, you'll be the one turning heads no matter where you go!

Beards are a fantastic way to make a statement, but they’re also an excellent way to express yourself. If your beard is long enough, it can serve as an effective shield against bad weather and the elements. And if you keep it neatly trimmed and groomed, it becomes much easier for people to recognize who you are—and that makes everyone feel better.

Beards aren’t just trendy right now; they’re also practical!


Beards are a very important part of a man's life. They can make you look more mature and authoritative, but they also come with their own set of problems. It's important to learn how to take care of your beard so that it looks healthy and well-groomed at all times. In this article, we've covered some key points on how to care for your facial hair so that it always looks good when someone sees you in person or online!
