Tips on beard care and the right grooming products for you.

My beard care routine

  • Wash with beard shampoo 2-3 times per week, with plain water on other days
  • Air dry. Use a hairdryer on medium heat if you’re in a rush. Brush while drying for a smoother result
  • Distribute 4-5 drops of beard oil on the palm of your hand and rub it into the skin under your beard to prevent itchy and flaky skin
  • Work a pea-sized amount of beard balm or beard pomade through your beard. It nourishes, smooths and shapes your beard

What’s the right product for your beard?


The skin under your beard can be dry, making it itchy or even flaky. A facial moisturiser won’t reach that part of your skin, so a beard oil is a must. Applied correctly, it won’t just benefit your beard, but also your skin.


  • You can start using beard oil on designer stubble. Since it nourishes the skin underneath your beard, it will help prevent itching, making beard oil a must, even for beard newbies
  • Once your beard reaches 2-3 cm, beard hair starts to get unruly. Beard balm can help tame it. It provides some hold, nourishes and smooths beard hair
  • When your beard gets past 5 cm, you can blow dry it using a brush (but not too often, as the heat damages beard hair). To keep the dried beard smooth, you can use a solid beard pomade


Beard hair is sensitive and prone to dryness. Wash a longer beard with care to prevent damaged or frizzy hair. Wash with water regularly and only occasionally with a gentle shampoo or soap. Normal hair shampoo is too harsh on your beard, but if your hair isn’t too greasy, you can use your beard shampoo on your head. I even use my beard shampoo from head to toe
