On the surface, beard care seems low maintenance, with a simple routine that you can practice in every season. But once summer rolls around, you need to make a few adjustments to keep your beard full and healthy.
Summer poses a few specific problems. Because you’re spending more time outdoors, you’re more likely to trap dirt, sand, sweat, and grime in your beard hair. A few splashes of water aren’t enough to clean it. Also, the increased sun exposure can lead to skin irritation and other pesky skin conditions. But there are some easy ways to avoid these problems.
Summer Beard Care Steps
Summer beard care is holistic—you’ll need to add in a product or two, but you’ll also need to take care of your body.
Beard Wash is a Must | Your beard needs a deep clean. Solo Noir's Dapper™ All-Natural Face + Beard Wash is designed to remove all that seasonal dirt and debris without stripping away the natural oils that keep your beard hair soft.
Scrub Your Skin | The skin underneath your beard needs attention, too. If you don’t take care of your skin, you can experience redness, irritation, and even dandruff. Solo Noir's Refined™ Buff + Cleanse Facial Scrub removes dirt and dead skin cells, and their Muse™ Beard Oil keeps both your beard hair and skin fully moisturized.
Stay Hydrated | Hydration isn’t just about how you moisturize your beard, it’s also about drinking enough water to hydrate from the inside out.
Consider a Trim | A shorter length is easier to clean and helps prevent skin problems.
There’s no problem with rocking a beard year-round. Just be sure to adjust your routine appropriately for the season.
