1. Cleanse

Let’s be real. Beards and mustaches catch a lot of stuff—from food and drinks to sweat and dirt. You might need more than a bar of soap to keep it clean and manageable. The best option? A moisturizing shampoo like DESIGNLINE for Men 2 in 1 Shampoo and Body Wash. It cleanses and moisturizes well, while removing dead skin, natural oils, and all the things that contribute to a less-than-fresh beard or moustache. Remember to rinse well.

2. Condition

You’ll enjoy the feeling of a soft, smooth beard, and so will others. After cleansing, apply a beard oil or serum like American Crew Beard Serum that infuses moisture for softness and manageability. Facial hair is coarser than scalp hair, so using an oil or serum product like this will give it the intense conditioning it needs.

3. Dry

After cleansing and conditioning, it’s important to dry your facial hair well. Often facial hair is left to air dry, but bacteria likes to grow in dark, moist and warm environments so it’s important for your beard or moustache to be thoroughly dried. It also ensures your skin stays healthy.

4. Comb

Routinely running a brush or comb through your moustache or beard will keep it tidy, but will also make it softer and smoother. When you run a comb through the hairs, it redistributes oil and increases blood flow, which helps keep it from feeling itchy.
