Unless you’ve been living under a huge beard, you’re probably aware that beards have made a massive comeback over the past couple of years. And whether you’ve got full-on facial fur or just simple stubble, every gent need to be treating their beard with the same TLC as the hair on their head (if there is indeed hair on that head).
Without such care, many beard missions are aborted because of dry and flaky skin, itching, scratchiness or breakouts below beard level.
Enter one of the greatest inventions since NFL Red Zone: The Beard Balm.
A beard balm works to tackle two of the main struggles a growing beard faces. First, it hydrates coarse facial hair and underlying skin for a softer beard with less itching and flakiness. Secondly, it’s essentially a “pomade” and scented lotion that enables a man to shape and style his beard to avoid an un-kempt and messy look.
Here’s a few of our favorite beard balms, as selected by the Barbering Teams in Grooming Lounge Barbershops & Spas.
