Skin Regime

First and Foremost you need to understand that a decent skin regime is VITAL to succeed with a promising beard. You DON'T Want your skin full of dirt. understanding that your face need's to breath to stimulate the hair follicles is the first rule of skin care. Picture a flower, you need fresh air and water (Beard Oil or Beard Balm in this instance) to allow the seed to grow into a flower. without the main components the flower will not sprout and grow.

unlike your head, your face don't produce as much sebum (made up of natural oils) this helps protect your skin & hair from moisture loss. Using our products made from natural ingredient's you know that your giving your beard the best kind of care.

Now keeping a clean face has been covered, your probably wondering what should I use?

We Recommend a natural facewash, You can guarantee a better experience for your skin whilst using a natural product. 


Lifestyle – Self Care

What does self-care mean to you? 

Doe’s it mean taking a holiday, having a nice long bath or even a decent diet? To us at man made it is all the above plus more. From looking after yourself mentally to that sweet cold pint on the beach. 

The most important thing you need to do is look after yourself. Our company aim “To Build Confidence & Raise Mental Health Awareness” says it all from our products to our service. You are not just a customer, you are a friend. That’s why this is the biggest part of this blog to us. You need to think more positive about yourself in order to give yourself some loving, by having a decent meal plan (we know top quality fitness guru’s if this is what you need) & going for that afternoon walk in the park. Doing this will increase your endorphins helping you reduce stress and feel more energised. (Endorphins are hormones situated in the brain’s receptor’s, the body’s natural equivalent to morphine). WORK WORK WORK, we 100% understand that work can be demanding but don’t over do it, working your ass to the ground is not healthy! Have you heard of burnout? Burnout is when you literally work yourself until you burnout (hence the name), lack of sleep, overworked and loss of appetite. If you have been there, you’re know you never want to go back into such a situation again. We always say do what you love because then it never feels like your at work.

How to Promote Beard Growth - Using the Right Products?

Having Covered all the above, we think its right for you to know exactly what to look for when choosing a beard product. Firstly, we highly recommend using only CPSR registered products, if a company doesn’t have this, they really don’t have your health and safety in mind. CPSR stands for Cosmetic Product Safety Report. Having this means the company has taken the necessary assessment’s and precautions to keep you safe. It shows professionalism and it’s a legal requirement! Don’t be conned into the pitch, it’s a yes or no response you’re looking for. Many times, your receive something along the lines of “we are in the middle of it” or “you don’t need CPSR for our products because they are all natural” Now we have spoken about the safety of the products you use. Let’s talk ingredient’s, as some know we are massive on natural products. We don’t like any additives or extra’s which breaks down the whole natural side of things. We care for our skin as we do our beard. Our main carrier ingredients are Argan Oil, Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil & Sweet Almond Oil. The perfect blend to give your beard that smooth well nourished shine (for further carrier ingredient details check our ingredient page) or feel free to contact us where an experienced member of the team will happily assist.
