Whilst the year is drawing to a close, it’s time to start thinking about your New Year’s Resolutions. We know that beards have been a huge trend throughout 2016, with many men sporting lengthy facial hair. Many of you will feel the need to switch up your style and try something new. We’re here to help.
Maintaining a beard isn’t an easy task. Why not try going clean shaven for 2017? Once you’ve grown a decent beard, it’s not that easy to remove. You have to take it easy to avoid pulling on the hair too much, or irritating the skin underneath. If you’re looking to kick off the New Year with a clean shave, here are some of our top tips to make the process as smooth as possible.
Start With Exfoliation
This is essential when shaving in general, never mind after a month of solid growth. Exfoliating helps to stimulate the hair at the root, helping to lift it from the skin allowing to get a closer shave. It also helps to dislodge any trapped oil or dirt, ensuring your razor or beard trimmer glide through the hair easily. It might seem like an additional step, but trust us, it’s essential. It might also be worth following with a beard wash, just to remove any residue left behind by the exfoliator.
