A survey conducted by Humanery in August 2022, of over 2,000 people in the UK (widely reported in news outlets such as The Independent), revealed that nearly 45% of men reported never washing their beards with any beard cleaning or grooming products.
Did you know that the beard can trap pathogens exhaled from your nose and mouth? Essential beard care starts with clean facial hair and skin, so it is important to wash your beard 2-3 times a week with a proper beard wash, to remove buildup and bacteria, as well as condition and lock in moisture.
Why should men wash their beards regularly?
Not washing your beard regularly can lead to issues with the skin under your beard, such as beard dandruff, acne, in-grown hairs and a build-up of dead skin cells that block pores and cause irritation.
How to wash your beard
To wash your beard thoroughly:
1. Cleanse it with warm water and massage a small amount of beard shampoo, creating a rich lather.
2. Follow with a beard conditioner to add moisture back, soften and nourish.
3. Follow with a beard oil or cream to tame your strands and nourish deep down.
