skin care

Beard threading and General beard care. 

Ever heard of beard threading? I’ve been looking at this method of facial grooming recently and decided to give it a go, so I thought I’d share my experience with you.

First off, it hurts like nothing else. It won’t be something I do often, I just wanted to see the process and how it works/feels. This process will weaken the folicle and prevent the hair growing as dense in the future in that area, so this is particularly good for your cheeks and neck with any hairs you are constantly trimming. You will still have to trim your beard and look after it with your normal methods. 

You will want to get a good brush with strong rigid bristles as well as some good scissors along with your beard oils. Be sure to wash and scrub your beard to remove any dead skin and keep your beard and face soft, you’ll want to brush your beard when it’s still wet and then gently towel dry your beard until it’s almost dry, then apply your oils to lock in the moisture and leave it smelling great. 

So along with this grooming and possibly getting your beard threaded you can be going into the spring with an amazing looking beard. 

Don’t be scared to go and try threading, just be prepared for the pain and don’t listen to the reports that are creeping in saying beards are on the way out… They aren’t.

I use these products in the order I have listed them, start off by washing your beard and face with the Kalamazoo, then I follow that up by using the Clinique face scrub all whilst in the shower. I will then pat dry my face and apply the seaweed clay mask, leaving for 10 minutes and washing off with luke warm water, then I will apply Maca root face protection (before I go onto use my beard oil)

The lush Kalamazoo is a new product to me but I have added it into my routine already, it really is great! It leaves my beard smelling great and feeling soft, the product cuts through all the oils you may have left in your beard and removes dead skin. My beard has never looked and felt so great! It really is one of the best beard washes I’ve ever used. This will also be good for skin repair because it contains pineapple juice and orange oil, both known to have benefits such as anti inflammatory and skin repairing properties so not only does this leave you fresh and clean, it also makes your skin glow and look great!!
