If the world of Instagram, Facebook and the myriad other forms of media have taught us anything in the last few years, it’s that beards, moustaches and other forms of face fuzz are cool. The biggest problem with this hairy movement is that so few men look after their fluff. Having a beard is not as easy as just not shaving; it is an art form, one which needs the right tools. Below are the top 5 products you need in your beard care arsenal.
If you’re reading this stroking your beard and still questioning “why do I need beard care products?” here’s why. The unkempt, messy, untamed beard is only acceptable in three situations; you’re a castaway on an island, you live in a cave, you’re 6’ 5” and as hard as nails. If you are none of these, look after your beard. Something to consider when choosing your care products is what your beard goals are.
