Ol' Abe's Beard Care - Perfect Father's Day Gift!
The Amazing Benefits of Using Beard Products:
Beards have become dramatically popular in the last few years. A man’s beard is no exception when it comes to needing to be cared for. The skin hiding underneath all that facial hair needs as much care and attention as it would if he were shaving it every day, if not more.
Beard hair is typically quite coarse, and most often men experience itchiness, dandruff, or “beardruff,” and even in-grown hairs on the delicate facial skin underneath. When there’s a full beard it can also make it difficult to access the skin that can cause common skin problems like dryness, acne, or inflammation.
To understand why your beard is getting itchy, it is important to look at what is going on with the skin beneath your beard and how beard oil plays a role. At the root of every one of your beard follicles, you have a pair of glands called sebaceous glands. These glands are key to making sure that your beard stays well nourished. The sebaceous glands create this oil called sebum oil. As your beard follicle gets longer, it simply requires more and more sebum oil to coat the follicle while also keeping your skin well-nourished and moisturized.
One important key to understand is that no matter the length of your beard, your sebaceous glands stay the same size. Given that they are finite in size, their sebum oil production can’t effectively keep up with the demand of your beard for the introduction of Ol’ Abe’s beard products will actually act as a supplement to your sebum oil making the dreaded beard itch go away while also giving it the proper nourishment that it is seeking follicle.
As we covered above, when you use Ol’ Abe’s Beard Products on your beard, you are essentially splashing a much-needed bucket of water onto your face. When you don’t use any sort of beard products on your skin for an extended period of time and are constantly itching it due to irritation, beardruff will be born. Beardruff is essentially dandruff for your beard. Your skin is so dry that when you start to itch it, the skin begins to flake causing white specs of beardruff to show up on your shirt.
Using beard products will make your beard become a bit more maintained and less tangled and more manageable. Therefore if your beard is feeling a bit scraggly or straw-like, regular application of beard products will help in making it feel much better while regular use can help with the reduction of occurring split ends and if you are taking your beard growing seriously, the reduction of split ends will be good news as you won’t have to trim your beard nearly as often. In addition to the feel of your beard, the general appearance of your beard will also improve as the follicles of your beard will look a little bit shinier and healthier.
Regular beard maintenance will keep your facial hair looking healthier and increase the hairs strength and durability for further growth. To avoid that dry and wiry hair that everyone hates, daily use of Beard Products can turn your beard into the luscious locks you’ve always aspired to.
Last, but not least using a brush that is made of boar hair is an excellent way of trapping in the beard oil while helping to distribute them along the skin and beard follicles. While the comb isn’t used so much for the distribution of oils it is terrific for the use of the beard balm for styling purposes.
