Not So Itchy: How to Look After Your Beard – the Iles Formula Way

With many men preparing their beards for #Movember to raise awareness of men’s health issues, here are some of our best beard care tips!

The difference between a well-maintained, healthy beard and a dry and brittle one depends on how closely you implement best beard care practices. Eating a well-balanced diet, grooming with the right products, and frequent conditioning all contribute, but let’s be honest, how many men can genuinely say they actively follow these things?

If you want to get back on track with maintaining your beard or if you are struggling with dull, coarse facial hair, the following blog can serve as your guide!

1. Gently scrub the skin

A lack of proper exfoliation will result in dead skin cells, dirt, and even traces of food getting trapped in your pores! These particles can mix with sebum (the oil that your skin naturally produces) and result in chronic acne and itchiness.

Not fun, right?

In that case, get on top of your beard shampooing and purchase a well-formulated product like the Iles Formula Shampoo. This award-winning hair cleanser has zero harmful chemicals and an abundance of nourishing ingredients that will rinse out all the accumulated bacteria without being too drying for the dermis. 

We recommend washing your beard at least 1-3 times a week depending on its stage of growth – i.e.: more washes for a longer beard! You only need to use a small amount of the Iles Shampoo for it – the key is to add more water, not more product to wake up the indulgent lather it creates for a gentle cleanse.

2. Lifestyle

Because testosterone plays an incremental role in body hair growth, a low level can result in a beard lacking density and volume. Therefore, without relying on stimulants, the most natural way would be to focus on protein-rich and zinc-dense superfoods like organic chicken, beef, eggs, pork, and oatmeal. Additionally, many studies suggest that weightlifting and strength training are key workouts that augment male hormone production in the body.

Long story short, a balanced diet + muscle building = healthier and fuller beard!

3. Trims and conditioners

Keeping your beard immaculately clean helps a lot, no questions there. But to have a beard that appears healthy and soft, the individual hair strands must be hydrated and nourished. 

So, where do you start?  

There’s nothing worse than having a frizzy and unhealthy-looking beard so it is crucial to ensure the beard is well moisturized for a soft, naturally healthy look.  By incorporating the Iles Formula Conditioner. This emollient product is made using all-natural components like Tucuma Palm, Macrobola Tree seeds, and various nut oils that keep the beard hair moisturized and frizz-free. Add this product to your beard care routine.

We equally recommend trimming your facial hairs frequently. Aesthetic reasons aside, snipping them often will prevent split ends, limit flyaways and stimulate hair growth. 

 

Pro tip:  Prior to cutting your beard strands, brush them out with a wide-tooth comb. This will detangle any knots and avoid any inconsistencies in hair length.
