When summer comes, many men tend to completely shave their beards to have skin in the open air and no longer feel that hot feeling that they can suffer. Well, generally, men who shave clean are men who have 3-day beards , and whose beard will grow back very quickly. It is very rare that very bearded men, who have waited several weeks or even months, completely shave their beards : they have waited so long to have it. But concretely, men do not really know how to maintain their beard when it is hot.

Also, I'm going to give you below all the advice to properly maintain the beard when it's hot, mainly in summer.

Why maintain your beard when it's hot?

The long beard , like the 10-day beard or even the hipster beard , in summer can be a real annoyance, for several reasons :

  • The heat of course : under a 40°C sun near the barbecue, the feeling of heat can be difficult to bear for some with long beards.

  • Beard care : when we go on vacation we generally leave our beard care products at home, we don't take them with us. For lack of space in the toilet bag, because the format is greater than 100 ml and does not fit on the plane. Because we also want more relaxation, and therefore less care for our skin and our beard.

  • Dirty Beard Happens Faster : Since we are outside more often, our beard gets dirty faster. In summer there is indeed more dust in the streets due to drier air. And the dust settles well in the beard. We also go to the beach, and the sand likes to get stuck in our beards, especially if we play beach games.

  • Perspiration is more important : necessarily the hotter it is, the more we sweat, and this is also valid for the skin of the face under the beard. But also perspiration that can flow from the forehead and cheeks onto the beard. And perspiration soaks into the hairs of the beard.

  • The damage related to aperitifs, evenings : we must talk about it ! Inevitably in the summer we do more evenings, so inevitably there is damage in the beard. A slightly too drunk evening and there are traces of alcohol in the beard !

In short, you have to maintain your beard when it's hot. Here are my tips for properly maintaining your beard.

Care to maintain the beard when it's hot

Wash the beard to maintain it in the summer

It is strongly advised to wash your beard in the summer, more than the rest of the year. As mentioned above, in summer the beard is indeed dirtier : dust, perspiration, sand, tomato sauce… to eat sauces ! So, you will have to maintain your beard in the summer by doing more beard shampoos. If you can't bring a liquid beard shampoo (for lack of space in the toiletry bag or because your beard shampoo is more than 100 ml), don't hesitate to take a beard soap with you. In any case, do not use hair shampoo to wash your beard, it is not good for your skin under the beard or for your beard hair.

In short, it will need a lot of maintenance when you return from vacation. To avoid this, apply a beard oil every day that will keep your skin and beard moisturized while on vacation. A hydrated hair is a stronger hair, so your beard will be in its best condition.
