Tips for a Bearded Guy with No Time
If you are a busy guy, it is understandable that you may not have the time or energy to indulge in a full-blown grooming regime. However, that should not stop you from looking your best. Yes, a great beard is a result of constant care and upkeep but there are some habits, which if you incorporate into your routine, will make it possible for you to look totally dapper!
1. Go short
Most guys dream of having a luscious beard in hopes of looking as though they have just stepped out from a Harley-Davidson commercial. The truth is that longer beards require more time and extra upkeep. Therefore, if you do not have the time, choose to have a shorter and more manageable beard style.
Of course, we are not encouraging you to go for a clean-shaven look because even THAT requires constant upkeep. Short styles such as a grazed stubble or a slightly thicker variation, the scruffy beard, works exceptionally well on all face shapes, and are easy to take care of – all to enhance your looks. Regardless of the size of your beard, invest in a soft short brush – check out the Gentsscape site- to provide shine to your beard
2. Drop unhealthy habits
Whether it is stress or smoking, unhealthy habits can make it harder for you to groom your beard and there is research to back these claims. Stress can seriously inhibit your testosterone, the sex hormone responsible for your facial growth. Similarly, smoking is no good for your skin; apart from damaging your skin texture, smoking will leave an ugly smoky smell in your beard – a no-no for many women! Getting rid of such an odor means you will need to wash your beard hair more frequently and double the grooming efforts, which obviously will increase your beard maintenance time. Gentsscape offers several washes for regular washing of the beard – the lingering scent left will just be another vibe to add to your overall dapperness!
To guard your testosterone level, make an effort to eat and sleep well. Integrate exercise into your regimen and voila, you will see a difference in your physical health including that of your beard.
3. Prime Your Beard in the Right Direction
Half the battle in grooming a beard is taming it. Pretty time-consuming and without this step, you will look unruly. Invest in regular trimming and brushing of your beard in the downward direction every other day. Once your beard starts growing in the downward direction and stubborn hair is tamed, styling your beard will become quick and super-easy.
4. Invest in Basic but High-Quality Products
There is no need to buy a ton of products to make your beard look presentable. In fact, a Beard Brush, Wash and Oil is enough to keep a small or medium-sized facial mane healthy. When buying these products, do your research and do not waste your well-earned money on products that are not high quality or that are not natural. That is why Gentsscape ensures that all its products are created with natural ingredients that benefit your skin and your facial hair.
Is a natural product going to be pricey? Yes! But will it save you time and be super effective? Also, yes.
5. Be Consistent and Do Not Skip the Essentials
Cleansing, moisturizing, and brushing are 3 essential steps that you should not miss. If you are pressed for time, we recommend you add them to your daily shower routine since your hair is soft and prepped for grooming when the hair is wet.
6. Order Online!
Once you have figured out what products work for you, consider getting a subscription. This way, you will not have to place an order over and over again. You will have the beard care kit delivered to your doorstep every month – zero hassle!
Gentsscape offers a 5% discount if you sign up for a monthly subscription so you save time and money, both!
A healthy grooming routine does not have to be lengthy. That challenge is to be consistent. Once you do that, everything else will become a breeze. It will be super easy to look dapper!
