ULTIMATE BEARD CARE ROUTINE –
For your convenience, I divided this routine into two phases –
01. Daily beard care routine
02. Weekly beard care routine
Both of these phases are necessary to make your beard impressive and healthy but it should be started from the daily beard care routine.
01. Daily beard care routine –
A man’s beard is a significant and crucial part of his personality, so just beard trimming in a month is not enough for a good and healthy beard.
Every day your beard struggles from dust, dirt, and pollution, which is sufficient to make it lifeless.
There may be many problems with your beard due to lack of proper care like dandruff, itchiness, brown and gray hair, clogged pores, unmanageable hair, etc.
All these situations are very irritating.
an untidy beard will give you a very annoying and creepy look along with these problems.
Therefore it is necessary, that you keep regular care of your beard, which is very easy. you just have to execute all the given daily beard care routine steps –
(A) Washing/Cleansing –
It is crucial to wash the beard because all the dust and dirt are seated in your beard throughout the day, due to which the risk of bacterial infection is very high.
You must wash your beard twice a day, for saving your time, when you wash your face, you can wash your beard at the same time, once after waking up and once before bed.
Well, in case if you don’t know, I’ve already covered a full article on a skincare routine, which you can check by clicking here.
You should always wash your beard by using lukewarm water only and also use a beard shampoo or beard wash just twice a week.
Do not use beard wash every day otherwise, you strip off all the natural oils from your beard.
These natural oils keep your beard moisturized and healthy.
If you are a biker or sportsman and you spend most of the time outside then you can wash your beard every day but then you should also take some extra care of your beard.
Do not use any hair shampoo as a beard wash, because there are a lot of silicones in hair shampoos, which can clog your skin pores, also hair shampoos are a little bit harsher for your beard and they can also damage your delicate skin.
So please use a beard wash or beard cleanser.
There are many good beard washes available in the market, which you can use like wolf natural’s therapy beard wash, billy jealousy beard washes, Spartans den premium beard wash, etc.
You can also use a face + beard wash if you want to save your time and money both.
After washing the beard, gently pat dry it with a soft and neat bathing towel.
(B) Oiling –
Just as the oil is required for your hair, it is equally crucial for your beard.
Oiling is the key to keeping your beard healthy. Beard oil moisturizes your beard and it is also beneficial for your skin.
It also has vitamin E which is very necessary for your skin and hair.
Beard oil provides nourishment to your beard by going inside the hair follicles of your beard.
Apart from this, it also protects the skin from infections.
In nutshell, it keeps your beard healthy and also helps in growth. So you should necessarily invest in a good quality beard oil.
If you don’t want to use any Branded beard oil then you can use natural jojoba oil, which is the best oil for your beard.
You should do beard oiling, twice a day.
Right after washing the beard, you should put in oil and massage.
I would recommend that before sleeping at night when you put oil, put in a little more quantity.
The reason for this is that while sleeping our body grows and repairs itself and doing so will increase your beard growth.
Beard Oiling Method –
(a) After washing & pat drying your beard nicely, take a paddle brush, and detangle your beard gently.
(b) Now, take a little amount (2-3 drops) of beard oil in your palms according to the length of your beard and rub your palms, Due to which the oil will become slightly lukewarm (Lukewarm oil goes well and soaks up perfectly into the roots of beard hair) due to friction and spread it evenly in your palms.
(c) After distributing the oil, use your fingers as a comb and brush your beard gently.
(d) Massage so deeply that oil reached the skin of the beard region.
Do not worry about massaging this oil on your face, it will not harm your skin at all, it will not cause any acne or pimple because beard oils are very lightweight, it will make your skin healthy because it contains vitamin E.
(e) Now if there is any excess oil in your palms, then you use that for massaging your mustache region.
(f) so this the best oiling routine for your beard, now is the time to brushing and combing your beard.
(C) Combing –
Combing the beard is a very essential step of this ultimate beard care routine because it detangles your beard and helps in the growth.
When you comb your beard, it increases the blood flow, due to better blood flow, your beard receives more nutrition, which increases the growth of your beard.
Apart from this, combing the beard after oiling is also very helpful.
When you comb your beard, the oil spreads well in the beard and it also reaches the hair follicles properly.
Here you need three types of combs. Apart from these, you do not need any other fancy comb –
(a) Paddle brush –
After washing and drying your beard, you need to use a paddle brush.
A paddle brush is a brush, which has Large rubber/nylon bristles coming out of a soft pad.
It helps to detangle your beard but here we are focusing on increasing the surface area of your beard.
Fluff out your beard through the reverse combing method, which is one of the best beard combing techniques.
(b) Detangler comb –
You need a detangler comb after oiling your beard.
It detangles your beard and removes knots well.
It’s a wide-toothed comb, which is also used to spread the oil evenly in your beard.
Detangle your beard gently with the detangler comb.
(c) Boar bristle brush –
A boar bristle brush is mainly used to set your beard.
It detangles all the thin, small, and fine hairs of your beard.
Detangler comb works on an initial level but boar bristle brush removes all the hair knots and tangles deeply, also it spreads the oil in all the fine hair.
A Boar bristle brush is a brush that has thin, soft, and flexible filaments or bristles.
So this is an ideal beard combing routine that you have to follow every day.
(D) Styling (optional) –
Well, Your daily beard care routine ends after combing the beard.
After this, if you want then you can style your beard with a beard wax or any other beard styling product but I suggest, avoid putting synthetic styling products in your beard, as much as possible because in long term it is extremely toxic for your beard.
There are a lot of harmful chemicals in these products, those are sufficient to damage your beard badly.
Also If you use beard wax daily, then you have to wash your beard with a beard wash every day, which proves to be even more deadly to the health of your beard.
So stay away from these products but if you want to use beard styling products, then use barely on special occasions, using these products two to three times a month is ok.
When you are styling your beard with beard wax, use it after at least two or three hours of oiling the beard otherwise it can clog all the pores, which leads to acne and many more terrible problems.
02. Weekly Beard Care Routine –
To make the beard appearance neat and elegant, you need to follow two major steps, which are trimming and shaping.

If you don’t want to look terrible with an untrimmed beard then you should trim your beard two to three times a month.
