Decembeard is a charity that’s helping people with bowel cancer all around the world. They provide vital practical and virtual advice and support, and are campaigning tirelessly to raise awareness of bowel cancer. Every December, thousands of men across the world grow a beard in support of the Decembeard charity. Over the last 5 years, men have been supporting the Decembeard Foundation by growing, shaving, decorating, and all sorts of other wonderful beard-related activities. However, if you don’t fancy growing a beard, you can do you bit by simply donating online.
If you are planning to get in involved though, here are our top tips for taking care of your beard this Decembeard!
This is especially important in the early stages of growing your beard, when trapped food and skin cells can lead to itching. Scrub your beard several times each week with a specialized cleanser, like our Soothing Beard Wash with Avocado Extract, then gently pat it dry: rubbing too hard with your towel can lead to frizz and split ends.
Facial hair tends to draw moisture away from the skin, and with dropping temperatures over the winter, you could find that your skin starts to get really dry and can even become quite sore. Your skin might even begin to flake, and flakes of skin stuck in your beard is really not a good look. We recommend moisturising after every wash with a good quality cream, like our Conditioning Deluxe Beard Balm with a Blend of Botanical Oils & Waxes. This will go a long way to growing a healthier and happier beard!
Worship your Beard Oil
Nothing tames a beard like a good old beard oil. Beard oil moisturises the hair, helping to soften tough beard hairs. This helps combat frizz, and allows you to control and style your beard. Our Nourishing Beard Oil with Olive Extract even comes with a luxury beard comb, so you can keep your beard looking slick all day long. Plus, it smells fantastic! All of our products have the unique Admiral Gold scent, giving your beard the best look and smell around!
