Guide to a Healthy Skin Under Your Beard

The Quintessential Guide to Healthy Skin Under Your Beard

Gentlemen, a majestic beard doesn't just sprout overnight. It's nurtured, cared for, and loved - and it all begins with the skin beneath. So, let's embark on a journey to keep the foundation of your beard as healthy as your sense of humor.

The best tips for a healthy skin under your beard

1. Daily Cleansing: The Groundwork of Greatness:

Start each day with a gentle cleanse. Think of it as a morning coffee for your face - rejuvenating and essential. A good cleanser for your skin type is key, be it for oily, normal, dry, or sensitive skin. Remember, what works for your beard may not work for your skin, and vice versa.

2. The Gentle Pat-Down:

After cleansing, it’s all about the pat-down with a clean towel. Keep it gentle; your skin isn't a drum kit.

3. Exfoliate (But Only If Necessary):

If ingrown hairs are your nemesis, a gentle exfoliating scrub 1-2 times a week can be your secret weapon. Just don't go overboard; your face isn't a DIY project.

4. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize:

A moisturizer with SPF is your best friend during the stubble phase. Once you've graduated to a full beard, switch to a beard conditioner or oil. And for the sensitive-skinned gents, opt for fragrance-free, non-comedogenic moisturizers. Remember, skipping this step is like skipping the climax of a great movie.

5. Comb and Condition:

Use a beard comb for detangling and spreading beard conditioner or oil evenly. It's like a mini-spa treatment for your beard.

6. The Art of Trimming:

Trimming is where your beard gets its personality. Use the right tools, shave in the direction of hair growth, and remember to change your razor blades regularly. It's like sculpting – but with hair.

7. The No-Touch Zone:

Resist the urge to stroke your beard. Your hands carry more stories (and germs) than you think, and transferring them to your beard is a no-go.

Important Note on Beard Dyeing:

For those contemplating a color change, always do a patch test first. Products like Cleverman beard dye are fantastic, but every skin type is a unique landscape. Cleverman even offers a refund if your skin throws a fit, so it's a risk-free venture into beard coloring experimentation.


There you have it, the roadmap to a healthy beard and the skin underneath. It's not just about the facial hair; it's about the canvas it grows on. Nurture it, love it, and occasionally, let professionals like Cleverman take the wheel. Remember, a healthy beard is a happy beard!
