Keep it clean – Did you know: The average moustache will trap a pint and a half of beer every single year.
As you can guess from the fact, your beard & moustache attracts and holds dirt, food, dead skin and yes beer. Mixed with sebum and sweat this is what causes itching and skin irritation. It’s crucial to keep your beard & skin in tip-top condition with a beard washing routine.
Using normal shampoo strips the hair follicles of the natural oil’s that’s why we recommend using a specialised beard shampoo 3 times a week. Man Made Beard Shampoo has now racked up many of reviews from our bearded brothers already taking advantage our refreshing beard product.
Always wash with lukewarm water so you're not burning your skin underneath, ensuring any leftover beard shampoo residue is left.

Drying your beard
We can’t stress the importance of ensuring you dry your beard thoroughly, leftover water in your beard will make your skin itch more. It dries the skin beneath irritating. Using a clean towel to absorb the excess water and giving a blow-through with a hairdryer will clear the risk of drying out your beard hair & skin.
This is a vital point; you cannot grow a healthy beard without the right beard oil.
That’s why we use Argan oil, Jojoba oil and Sweet Almond oil in our oils.
This creates a healthy barrier over the skin, hydrating, moisturising and protecting both the skin and hair.
If you want to fight beardruff and beard-itch, beard oil is essential.
You may as well shave your beard off if you don’t use the correct products. The last thing you want is to be out in public scratching your beard and it looks like Christmas is coming with all the beardruff coming away from your mane.

Beard brushes and beard combs are also a big part of beard care, using these helps style and optimise your beard growth to its full potential. When applying beard balm or beard oil with a decent brush or comb, will help spread the product more evenly and get in between each follicle giving it the ultimate boost.
