Research shows that in fact your beard grows slowest during the winter. Beard growth increases to its peak during the summer time, July is when your beard reaches it highest growth rate. These growth rates correspond to testosterone levels, which are lowest during the winter and at peak during the summer.
Growing a mighty winter beard, you better take advantage of the summer to accelerate beard growth. Just like most thing’s timing is everything.
Beard care summer vs winter
In the summer time, you want to wash your beard more frequently (we recommend using our Sweet lemon beard soap), due to the heat, humidity & sweat a build of residual salt can damage your beard. Turning your awesome beard into a dry, flaky mess. With the extra washing you want to oil up more often.
This doesn’t mean that during the winter your beard needs less oil, as a common habit is to turn the heating up. Heaters come on, humidity goes down and you start to dry out. Heaters/Radiators are known to dry your skin & hair out.
Another one is hot shower’s, we all love a hot shower after a cold day at work. Hot water actually dries out your skin & hair, drop the temperature to a warm shower to save your skin & beard from drying out.
