October is almost over and for many men across the country, that means one thing – the beginning of Novembeard. For those unfamiliar with the month-long tradition, it is merely a designated period when men agree not to shave for 30 days.
However, since Thanksgiving, a time when many guys travel home to see loved ones, falls toward the end of the month, those participating in the beard-growing challenge may look especially scruffy
Instead of preparing for questions from distant relatives about your appearance – or worse, forgoing Novembeard – men can use a few products to help maintain their facial hair.
While shaving or trimming of any kind is frowned upon, men can keep their faces looking great by using a shampoo, like L’Occitane Cade Shower Gel for Body and Hair, to clean their beards as often as they wash the hair on their heads. Anthony Logistics Every Day Conditioner is formulated to moisturize and protect skin, and soften facial hair.
Additionally, men should use a moisturizer, such as Jack Black Double Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20, to make sure the skin underneath the beard is well-conditioned, to reduce the itchiness that scruff can lead to.
