How Often Should You Wash Your Beard?

Washing your beard regularly keeps your skin and your facial hair in good condition. Use warm water, as well as a dedicated beard wash, and try to get into the habit of washing your beard every time you wash the hair on your head.

You shouldn’t wash your hair every day to prevent it being stripped of its natural oils, and the same applies to your beard – best practice would be a few times a week.

More Beard Care Tips

Follow these beard care tips in addition to your trimming and washing, and you’ll deserve to feel proud of your facial hair:

Skincare is Just as Important as Beard Care

Cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise your face regularly to keep attention on your beard for all the right reasons. A simple skincare routine with these three steps can help to cleanse excess oil and bacteria from your face, remove dead skin cells and flaky or dry skin, and can even stop your beard from feeling so itchy.

Trim Your Beard Neckline

Keeping on top of your beard neckline can help your face and neck to look a lot slimmer, and it can help your whole look to seem more polished. The King C. Gillette Neck Razor is specially designed for shaving over the skin on your neck, so it’s the ideal tool for keeping your beard neckline in check.

Trim Carefully

Remember that it’s always best to trim just a little bit of hair at a time – you can always take more off, but you can’t add hair back on once it’s been trimmed off.

Always Lather Up

You can get away without using a shaving gel when you’re trimming longer beard hair, but you need to use a shaving gel or foam the rest of the time to protect your skin and reduce your risk of razor bumps and ingrown hairs. Our King C. Gillette Transparent Shave Gel, which contains aloe vera, makes it easier to see the areas you’re planning to shave.

Stay Sharp

Keep your blade sharp and you’re guaranteed to look sharp. Dull or damaged blades increase your risk of shaving cuts, so make sure you’re well stocked up on replacement blades for your razor.
