2019 summer is raging on which brings on the heat wave and increased outdoor activities.Instead of shaving off the beard and re-growing them in the winter months, you can make the summer a lot more breathable and bearable.
Check out these grooming tips you’ll need for your beard this summer.
1. Body & Beard Hydration
We’re naturally inclined to go out more in the summer months. Sweltering temperatures combined with a lot more time outside can get us dehydrated fast. Water is your lifeblood and will keep you hydrated and your circulatory system flowing. Less water, means your beard follicles won’t be stimulated. This is a natural form of protection and very easy to accomplish.
Make sure to always do the following:
- Keep a reusable water bottle on hand when you’re out and about.
- Drink water the first thing you do when you wake up.
- Avoid excessive dehydrants in the summer heat.
Staying hydrated will keep your beard at an equilibrium. When you don’t drink enough water you start to see it in your beard. Dry bristles be gone!
2. Inglorious Fuzz Beard Oil as Sunscreen
Beards aren’t just great to have in the winter to protect against the cold. The hairs on your face act as a natural blocker of the sun. The skin nestled beneath the strands of your hair are protected by harmful UV rays. Applying Inglorious Fuzz beard oil to your face can get as a natural sunscreen. The lighter consistency of the oil will spread evenly throughout to keep things soft and fresh.
After being in the sun all day, a good beard shampooing will do wonders. It’ll help you maintain that new color from the sun’s rays and maintain optimum moisture levels. All the while, your beard is doing the work by keeping your skin safe.
3. Beard Moisturizing at the Beach or Pool
There’s no better way to get cool in the summer than to go to the beach or pool. When you hop in that water your beard becomes a magnificent sea creature. The tangles and ringlets become the envy of all as they bounce and swirl in the depths. A small amount of salt water can be a healing force for your follicles. But you also have to be careful about the water actively dehydrating your beard once you start drying off.
Before getting into the pool – especially a chlorinated one, it’s best to wet your beard beforehand. This way your beard will absorb less of the chlorine that could be potentially damaging.
Dry your beard out by patting it down and not roughing it up. After the beach it’s best to use a beard cream to moisturize it and get back some of the oils that were stripped away.
