There comes a certain decision that every person that loves sporting a beard has to make. Usually it's between three options. The first, is to get rid of the beard completely, after all, it has has started getting messy and wild, which brings us to the second option: keeping the beard and just letting it grow naturally, the classic caveman look if you will. Then there's the third and most logical option: to trim and shape your beard which will allow you to keep the beard, and even create a unique look for yourself, this is what we call Beard Maintenance, and also when The Art of Manscaping comes into play.
However, if you insist on a DIY approach, then start by purchasing the right tools. Do not settle for anything less than a pair of professional barber's scissors. If you would rather use a beard trimmer, find a cordless and rechargeable unit. A wide-toothed comb for the beard and a fine-toothed mustache comb must also be on your list of items to purchase. To complete the list, you can add a three-way mirror, a magnifying mirror, and beard bib.
If you talk with most aestheticians, they will tell you that toners are an essential part of any skin care routine. Does this mean that you have to use it religiously day and night? Not necessarily. However, regular use can provide great benefits.
Appearances are so important in this fast-paced life we lead. Whether we like or not, people tend to make a judgment on the way we look and this first impression can color how they see us as a person. Personal grooming is one area that is available to every man to improve his image. Once the domain of women, grooming products are now widely marketed for men.
Beard trimmers are easier to use than scissors, as you can adjust trimmer settings to cut hair at various lengths. Set your beard trimmer to a longer hair length if you're new to using one - you don't want to cut too much at first. Wet hair is longer than dry hair, so trim a little at a time.
