Tips for Growing Your Beard or Moustache
If you prefer to start the challenge with a baby face, using the blades might be a better option. Either way, We recommend prepping your skin with a good cleanser, like Boyface’s Daily Exfoliating Cleanser , and condition the shaving area with a preshave oil or scrub like The Art of Shaving’s Unscented Pre-Shave Oil or Game Day’s Pre-Shave Invigorating Scrub.
When it comes to shaving, We’ve discovered that there are virtually two ways to shave, downwards and upwards, never sideways (ouch!). But what makes or breaks a good shave is the shaving cream or gel and the aftershave. When it comes to these shaving essentials, there’s nothing like going back to a brand that’s been there the longest time and has never failed, the Italian Proraso. I strongly recommend their Refresh Shaving Cream Tube. For the perfect aftershave, I strongly recommend something that will help you grow a healthy stash or beard and will help you avoid redness, bumps and ingrown hairs, like Anthony’s After Shave Balm, or if you prefer a good moisturizer instead, try one of my newest obsessions, Triumph and Disaster’s Gameface Moisturizer Jar.
Ooooh, We’re Half Way There…
It’s been two weeks since the challenge started (or whenever you’re trying to grow a beard/stash) and you’re worried it’s starting to look really awkward, with a very light hair but nonetheless steady growth. (Some of you might even be rocking a Frida Kahlo style.) Don’t fret. It might look awkward and you might be thinking about quitting but I strongly recommend to keep going; things will get better, trust me. Plus, remember you’re doing this for a good cause.
Now, if you are one of those guys who grow hair like crazy and you’re already starting to look like big foot’s younger brother, I would recommend trimming a little at this point; for this, I use a fabulous machine, its name says it all: The Virtually Indestructible Barbershop Clipper by Remington. And the great thing about this tool is you’ll be able to use it on your hair as well.
This Is the End…or the Beginning
It’s been 30 days. The challenge is ofﬁcially over (you made it!), but you still have a decision to make: whether you want to take the lumberjack look to the next level and rock it through the holidays, or you’re done and it’s time to go back to your usual babyface or ﬁve-o’clock shade. If you choose to keep that beautiful facial hair, here are a quick tip for your post-Movember/No-Shave November look from Master Barber Michael Haar of Proraso:
Wash your beard daily (and not with shampoo).
Washing the hair on your face is just as important as washing the hair on your head, no matter what length your beard is—but make sure the cleanser you use is specially formulated to care for your facial skin underneath. A beard cleansing foam, like Boyface’s Beard Mousse will rinse away dirt and oil, while leaving your face feeling hydrated, especially in the colder months.
