How To Care for your Quarantine Beard this Winter

How To Care for your Quarantine Beard this Winter

Growing a beard this winter will make your winter much better. Your mainly mane offers protection from wind burn, UV rays, and the coldest temperatures. 

But growing in out your beard is a dual edged sword. While the winter beard is your best friend when it comes to staying comfortable in the Blistery weather. It is also the tough season for our beard because of the low humidity and harsh elements will dry out your hair, causing it to become brittle.

Winter is when you want to step up your beard care game. This calls for daily moisturizing and consistency to your daily routine that will boost your skins moisture.

No more hot showers

Nothing is better than getting in hot shower after being out in the cold all day or even just a few minutes on your way from your car into the house. However, it may feel good in the moment it is no friend of your beard. Hot water strips hair and skin of natural oils (that would otherwise be moisturizing your hair and skin). This causes dry, brittle hair and itchy skin.

Instead, turn the water temperature down and take a cool shower whenever possible. Cool water seals cuticles to keep your beard moisturized and protected.

Shampoo less

While keeping your beard clean is important dial it back with shampoo. We recommend you use it every 3 days. Make sure that your are still using all the your face washes oils and balms daily. You can get these in Goldens skincare kit.

On shampoo days, avoid these ingredients:

  • Sulfates – Foaming agents that dehydrate and irritate skin. Golden Beard Shampoo is sulfate-free and contains Sunflower Oil - Rich with Vitamin A and E, this helps keep your skin healthy and makes the beeswax smooth and spreadable and Green Tea Extract to calm inflammation.
  • Silicones – Minerals that help smooth and straighten hair, as well as it give it shine. While that may sound like an ingredient you want, silicones build up on your beard, acting as a sealant. This means conditioners oils and balms won’t be able to penetrate and your hair will dehydrate, resulting in a brittle, frizzy and messy looking beard.
    • Note: There are some water-soluble silicones that rinse out with water. These are okay to use. Look for: Dimethicone Polyol, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, and Lauryl Methadone Polyol.

 

Keys for this winter

Golden Beard oil

Right after your shower, take advantage of your still-moist skin by applying a few drops of Golden Beard Oil. For a fresh and inviting scent use our all natural.  This is especially useful when the skin gets sensitive.

Depending on how dry your beard is, you can apply beard oil in the morning, reapply once during the day, and again at night. Test out the frequency to see what works for you.

Golden Beard balm

Beard balm should come after the beard oil step. It’ll add an extra dose of moisture to your beard and skin, while sealing that moisture in with beeswax. In addition, beard balm can be used to lightly style your beard and moustache, so you’ll look put together no matter how blistery the winds.

 

Do not skip the brushing/combing

Brushing your beard has a multitude of benefits. It keeps your beard clean, tidy, and in good form. It distributes beard oil evenly through your beard (goodbye, winter dryness). And did we mention it also stimulates circulation, promoting healthy beard growth?
