Complete guide to beard and mustache care: Find your style and maintenance tips

Are you curious about the perfect beard shape for your face type, or how you can prevent razor burn and effectively deal with irregular beard growth ? Discover essential information and tips on beard and mustache care, including choosing the right razor and shaving brush . Whether you're a novice or experienced beard wearer, this guide offers practical advice for every man.

  • Caring for your beard

    Beard care naturally starts with a visit to your barber. And purchasing the right beard supplies. So many men, so many beards. Every beard grows differently. Taking care of your beard is very important for a nice, sleek and healthy beard. Although the growth of beards differs per man, there are some basic maintenance steps: maintenance, cleaning, care and styling.

  • Maintaining your beard

    Depending on the type of beard growth and length, you do the maintenance either daily or weekly. You can do the maintenance with a trimmer, beard scissors and razor. Cut the long tufts of beard with the scissors. With the trimmer you can easily and smoothly trim the entire beard to the correct length. To ensure a close shave of the beard contours, we recommend using the safety razor instead of the multi-blade cartridge razor. The shape of the shaving head and the razor blade of the safety razor allows you to see very well where you need to shave along the beard edges. You can of course also use the razor to shave the beard hairs on the cheeks and neck.

  • Cleaning your beard

    Wash the beard with a special beard shampoo. A beard shampoo is a mild and skin-friendly shampoo. It removes dirt, dust and excess sebum from the beard but leaves the skin alone. It prevents dry flaky and chapped irritated skin under the beard. Clean your beard a maximum of a few times a week.

  • Grooming your beard

    Your beard is exposed to the sun, wind and pollution in the air every day. For a healthy and fresh beard you need to care for and nourish it daily. Always take care of your beard after cleaning it. Prevent a dry and fluffy beard. Always use a few drops of beard oil. Rub and distribute the beard oil using a wooden beard comb or beard brush. The advantage of beard oil is that it also nourishes the skin and you can easily apply and distribute it in the beard. If you still have a short beard or you hate oil, use a beard balm.

  • Styling your beard

    The longer the beard, the more important styling or modeling the beard becomes. Use a beard balm or beard wax to shape your beard. Rub and distribute the beard balm into the beard and shape it using the beard comb or beard brush.
