It’s time once again to embrace your inner lumberjack and ditch the razor (at least for the next month) because No Shave November is back! To put your best beard forward, remember to follow these Movember rules.
Rule #1 - Keep it clean.
Bearded or not, cleansing is an essential step in everyone’s skincare routine, and neglecting to do so can stunt growth and cause skin irritations before facial hair even leaves the stubble stage. To avoid the infamous ingrown hairs and dreaded “beardruff,” employ a non-drying cleanser such as the Brickell Purifying Charcoal Face Wash. It clears pores of bacteria and debris that may obstruct follicles while providing the healthy oils facial hair craves.
Rule #2 - Keep it smooth.
While on the subject of beneficial oils, beard oil is a must if you wish to prevent hair from becoming coarse and wiry. Jack Black Beard Oil maintains your new mane and keeps it soft and comfortable. Hair follicles receive some oil naturally from skin, which can cause your face to become dry and flaky, so it is important to nourish the surface below your beard as well. Vitamin-rich and moisturizing, it only takes 2-3 drops to transform your beard into a well-oiled machine.
Rule #3 - Keep it slick.
At this point, growing a beard might seem like more than you bargained for, but No Shave November doesn’t have to mean more hassle. Simplify your routine with multitasking products like the Baxter of California Grooming Cream. Lightweight and versatile, this styling cream offers manageability to head and facial hair alike. Its flexible hold and natural-looking matte finish can benefit all beard styles. It also contains gentle sunflower and jojoba seed oils to condition and tame your beard with ease.
Rule #4 - Keep it full.
Are you looking to gain an advantage over your friends on the race to bearded glory or just trying to unlock the full potential of your facial hair? Viviscal Professional Supplements are packed with beard-boosting ingredients like biotin–a form of vitamin H that encourages healthy skin, hair and nails. You may have heard of Viviscal for its ability to thicken head hair, and this extends to facial hair as well. These supplements improve patchy areas by increasing the density and growth of existing hair to take your beard from bare to burly.
