Beard Care For The Summer and How To Maintain It Properly
As the cool weather continues its recession, your beard doesn’t have to go with it. Here’s how to keep your manly beards and or scruff in check as the temperatures start to rise in the summer months.
Know the Science
Beards are associated with winter warmth, but not for the reason you think. See, while your manly scruff may keep you toasty by acting as a windshield, it doesn’t do much in the way of insulation. That means it won’t retain heat during the scorching height of summer. In fact, some beardsmen even claim that their whiskers keep them cool—dissipating heat as the hairs grow damp from sweat—but we can’t confirm or deny either way. Plus they help to keep bad bacteria out and improve your skin underneath your beard.
Make Cleansing a Priority
Your beards may not act as a woolen scarf, but it can cause irritation when your skin is hot and damp, so it’s all the more important to keep it properly cleaned. Scrub it down every morning or twice a week with a specialized cleanser, like our famous beard washes, The Famous Beard Oil Company offers two different kinds: 8 oz. Eucalyptus & Lemon and Cedarwood & Patchouli. This will remove any grime or debris that might accumulate in your beards, causing inflammation and itchiness.
This may sound a bit like overkill, but healthy facial hair starts with a healthy body. Summer is the season of dehydration, which can cause your hairs to grow brittle, and even more prone to breakage. Ensuring that you drink enough water is the easiest way to condition it. As well as exercise and having a healthy diet of leafy greens, protein and B vitamins.
Freshen Up Your Beard Oil and Use It Daily
The Famous Beard Oil Company offers 12 different kinds of beard oil to choose from! Be sure to read up on them and choose which one would be perfect for you. All of our oils are 100% natural and have their own unique scent and texture.

Try swapping out your beard oil for a lighter, citrus alternative, like our famous Nautilus blend, Spicy Citrus, Monk’s Dream or Clean Slate.
