Your face is the first thing people see and you need to give it the love it deserves no matter how busy your life is. Here are some simple tips you need to build into your morning grooming routine to keep you looking your best.
1. Wash your face and beard
Start your day off right with an invigorating shower, but don’t towel off your face completely because a slightly damp beard is ideal for applying beard oil. If you’re in a rush and a shower isn’t in the cards for your busy morning, give your face and beard a quick wash with an all natural soap before you start your day. It’s best to get into the habit of creating a morning routine for your beard so you and your beard have something to look forward to.
2. Beard oil is key
Before you completely dry your face, reach for the best bottle of beard oil you can find. It’s by far at the top of the list of products to use for morning routine for beard. A slightly wet beard is ideal for applying beard oil. Make sure the oil you’ve selected is made from all natural ingredients.
Beard Oil Quality Checklist:
- Does it contain all natural ingredients?
- Does it contain Argan Oil?
- Does it contain Jojoba Oil?
- Does it contain Coconut Oil?
- Does it contain Flaxseed Oil?
If you answered “no” to any of the above, grab your receipt and get yourself a refund. The only thing worse than depriving your bodacious beard of beard oil is applying BAD beard oil with ingredients that might actually do more harm than good. Stick to beard oils that contain those essential oils listed above.
3. Choose your comb wisely
Combs come in all shapes, sizes, materials and teeth styles. It can get overwhelming. The important thing to do is to not fall for gimmicks or trends, but to purchase the best comb for your beard. Just cause you found a comb made of dinosaur bones on Uncrate, and you’ve got the money, doesn’t mean a comb from The Chicago Comb Company won’t do the job better for your beard. If you have a particularly stubborn beard, you might want to invest in two combs. The first comb should have medium teeth to help get most of the tangles out and to distribute beard oil evenly. The second comb is for styling and will work great once the initial tangles have been release.
4. Protect your stache
Never neglect the hairs above your lip. Even if you’re not sporting a massive handlebar mustache, the hairs above your top lip deserve just as much care and consideration as the rest of your facial hair. Regardless of your mustache length, beard oil will still provide the same nourishing benefits to your stache. After you’ve allowed your beard oil to soak in, you might want to reach for an organic mustache wax to hold the look you’re going for. There are a lot of options out there because keep a mustache looking great is not a new phenomenon. There are tons of brands young and old that are clamoring for your dollars. We recommend keeping it simple and go with a straightforward, beeswax based product with simple, natural ingredients.
