Depending on where you live, you may have already experienced winter weather. Most people share differing opinions about their love of winter. However, most can agree that being home on a snow day and seeing a winter wonderland outside while being comfortably warm inside is a simple pleasure. With the cooler weather, a lot of things change: our wardrobe, activities, and even what we eat. The cooler weather may also affect the health of our skin and hair and can cause any facial carpet to become itchy and uncomfortable.
To keep up with the effects of the weather on our beards, it is essential that we change up our care. If you have been keeping up with our blog, you have probably read a recent post about summer hair and beard care, and so you know that your hair can be greatly affected by the weather. Keep reading to learn more about the effects of the winter weather on your beard and what products you need to rock the perfect beard all winter long.
What Winter Does To Your Beard
As you probably have experienced, cold weather dries out your skin, hair, and beard. As a result, if you don’t provide them extra moisture, your beard will become uncomfortable, will look scraggly, and will be unmanageable. The word that you need to remember this winter when it comes to your beard is “moisture.” Keeping your beard hair and your skin under your beard moisturized is key and will help you avoid an overly oily face and breakouts.
Moisturizing Can Help With Oily Skin
“How, so?” You may ask and be wondering: “Doesn’t putting more moisture on my face cause the breakouts?”
When it comes to breakouts, there is a lot to keep in mind. However, generally speaking, breakouts are most likely due to the overproduction of oil as a result of your skin and beard not getting enough moisture and not frequently washing your beard. You will find that when your beard and face are receiving an adequate amount of moisture, your skin will stop being oily.
What Causes Dry Skin?
Everybody’s skin is different, so what your skin needs may be different from other people. But a good place to start if you are experiencing dry skin is to begin moisturizing your skin and your beard. If your beard isn’t getting enough moisture, it can wick away oils from your face, causing your face to dry out. Applying beard oil and cutting away split ends are musts for having that badass beard you’ve always wanted.
The Winter Beard Product Musts
Badass beards can happen for a lot of reasons — genetics, diet, etc. — but the only way you can keep your beard looking great is through using the right products. For winter, it’s time to assemble your Beard Essentials Kit!
Beard oil can help to prevent a lot of issues, including an itchy beard, painful ingrowns, and breakouts. Apply beard oil regularly depending on your beard length and needs, and nourish your beard with moisture.
Chopperhead Leave-In Beard Oil is non-oily premium beard oil made, like all of our products, from natural ingredients such as coffee, ginseng, and guarana extracts. Place a dab of our beard oil on the ends of your beard and work throughout your beard for the greatest benefit.
Beard balm is the perfect product for providing your beard the extra nourishment during the dry, cold months of winter. Beard balm can add a protective layer of moisture that can also act as a shield against winter winds and the cold as well as soothe and repair your skin.
Chopperhead Aftershave Balm is one of the best ways to finish up your shaving routine. Simply apply to your face and neck after shaving, and experience additional benefits like skin regeneration, nourishment, and improved elasticity.
We also suggest using the Aftershave Tonic after shaving and before beard balm application for the best results. It can soothe your face and get rid of redness.
A beard comb and brush can help not only manage your beard but also help you evenly distribute beard oil and balms throughout your face. A brush or comb can help to straighten out each hair in your beard allowing for each trimming as well.
Chopperhead offers a variety of combs and brushes to fit your needs including our Folding Pocket Combs, a Pocket Comb, Mustache and Beard Comb, and a Beard Brush. Each comes in a compact case that can allow you to easily store it or take on the go with you.
Scissors are essential for keeping your beard looking badass and not like an unkempt mess, which isn't a great look for anyone. Trimming can help to get rid of split ends, which can help to keep your beard healthy and growing well, as well as shape your beard. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all way to shape your beard. Read this blog post from our archives and check out the infographic to see the beard shape that will complement your face shape.
Chopperhead doesn’t sell beard scissors, but you can find them online or at your local drug store for an affordable price.
Lastly, but definitely not leastly, beard wash is an absolute must for maintaining a beard you can be proud of. Beard wash cleanses away old product, excess skin oil, grime, and sweat — and anything else that may have made its way into your beard. Washing your beard can help it to look good, provide nourishment, and allow for better product absorption — so you can get the most out of your beard oil, balm, and other products.
Chopperheard Hair & Beard Wash can be used both for your hair and beard and is made for the needs of men’s hair and beard. Our beard wash can help to combat redness, dandruff, and can cleanse without drying out your beard, hair, or scalp. We utilize the nourishing benefits of natural ingredients, including ginseng, guarana extracts, and coffee. Cut down on the number of products you use and treat your face and beard to the care they deserve. Shop 200 ml and 50 ml bottles, as well as our Snake Limited Edition and Black Edition.
