The beard is a symbol for youthfulness, creativity, and a certain type of rugged manliness. It makes you feel two inches taller, and 10 pounds burlier. But the hardest part is the uncomfortable in-between transformation. From the awkward, itchy, patchy stage - to not recognizing yourself in the mirror - to dealing with your friends not-so-subtly mentioning that it might not be the greatest look.
Here's the deal: If you have a beard, you should definitely be maintaining it the correct way. Most men don’t believe they need to use any products at all. But men should take care of their facial hair as much as they take care of the hair on their heads. When you don't take care of your facial hair the skin underneath dries out, causing flaking. Dryness causes itching and irritation to the skin under your beard. You just need the right combination of beard grooming products, like beard oils and beard balms, along the proper beard styling products.
