There’s a standard code in grooming when it comes to facial hair and it’s a non-negotiable one. If you’re sporting a beard, it cannot stay unhealthy and whoever said facial hair doesn’t need upkeep must be living off the grid. While internet, Instagram and your peers may consistently recommend new products, there are only a handful of beard products you’d need to stay on the good side of grooming. Ready to be then stacked in your bathroom cabinet are six beard products you must consider to properly nourish and maintain your beard. Because, facial hair is a hot-date magnet if it’s maintained to perfection.
As of 2020, the men’s grooming industry has evolved into a much more intimate space. There are ingredients that one needs to be mindful of, oils that are more effective than balms – in a sea of grooming labels that come with exclusive fortes, picking out the best is a challenging task. But for starters, we recommend the basics: argan oil for soothing and reducing acne, jojoba for moisturizing and thyme oil for packing in anti-bacterial properties. Once you get these right, you have a plethora of options to choose from. We picked out our favourites…
Here’s a two-in-one solution to aid our beard care while we travel. While the oil keeps your moisture in check and maintains softness, the face wash comes with a dose of sea salt that helps clean out bacteria and dirt. While Uncle Tony may have only two years of grooming experience, it perfectly understands what the urban gent needs.
