Winter is coming! And that's why your beard needs your full attention now!
The frost is really giving your beard a hard time. More precisely, it is not the frost alone. It is the constant change between cold and warm, between dry cold and even drier heated air. The result is brittle and brittle beard hair and irritated skin under the beard. If it gets really bad, even red spots develop, it is flaky and itchy. Anyone who has such dry skin must now take specific action against it. Here are a few tips and tricks that can be integrated into everyday life.
Use the cold
Every time you're outside in the cold, your beard gets a little softer and wetter. This is due to your body heat and the air you breathe. Both cause condensation in the beard. This fact can be used for maintenance. If you come from the cold to the warmth, you can lock the moisture in your beard hair with two or three drops of beard oil. So it is resistant to the heating air for some time.
Avoid blow-drying in winter
As soon as you go outside in winter, the cold and condensation ensure that the beard's curly splendor returns. Therefore, you can do without blow-drying your beard straight in winter. This means that neither skin nor hair are additionally stressed and care routines can develop their full effect better.
Use a natural soap with a care effect
Against winter you should use a good natural soap. There are of course various components of different natural soaps that can help you with specific problems. The only important thing is that the soap must be greased with a high-quality oil. This means that despite cleaning, it provides your skin with enough oils.
An example here would be the now well-known Aleppo soap, which contains laurel oil to moisturize your skin and thus have a calming effect. However, some people are allergic to the ingredient laurel oil. A good alternative is our body and beard soap Clean. Thanks to its superfatting with argan oil, it cares for your beard while you wash it, making it softer and moisturizing the skin underneath. However, our secret weapon for the winter is hemp seed oil. On the one hand, hemp seed oil soothes skin irritations such as red spots and eczema and, on the other hand, it also has an antiseptic effect.
Take care of your skin under the beard
A few drops of beard oil as needed should be included in a good grooming routine anyway. Unfortunately, in winter that won't be enough for most people. If you still suffer from itchy and scaly skin despite the tips already mentioned, you need a remedy that helps your skin to regenerate itself. Dexpanthenol is usually an ingredient here that can help very well. Since there are hardly any lotions that contain dexpanthenol and do not grease the beard hair or contain silicone, we have here a recipe for a special serum.
And now cover up in your new care routine! Winter is coming!
