New Delhi, Nov 19 (IANS) No-Shave November is about spreading awareness and research in cancers related to men. The month is all about keeping the razor aside and embracing ones hair which many otherwise lose to cancer.
And if you are participating in the cause, grow that beard and moustache, and follow these tips and tricks shared by Myntra Fashion Stylist to keep them clean, groomed and liberated:
Beard balm/oil: It keeps the beard soft and hydrated, regulates the natural oils and reduces irritation by moisturizing the underneath skin. A consistent application of the beard oil boosts the beard (hair) growth.
Beard wax to keep the beard ‘beard-tiful’: Style with waxes designed to benefit that elegant mane. Like balms and oils, beard wax is multi-faceted; it grooms the beard. You can also use the wax for a strong, easy and flexible styling for the moustache. Alternatively, if the moustache is just growing, start to twist it in the desired shape and then use the wax.
Beard Wash: When it comes to men’s grooming, a beard wash is essential to keep the beard soft and shiny. It treats the coarse hair of the beard and replenishes the skin below. It removes dirt, dust, beard-ruff (same as dandruff in hair!) and other impurities from the beard.
Beard Shampoo and conditioner: You can use a medicated beard shampoo to do away with the minor infections and rashes; or/and a beard conditioner to counter the dryness which causes beard-ruff, dry or flaky skin underneath the beard.
Trimmers and beard combs: Don’t cut your beard in November; but don’t leave it wild and bushy either. Go with a well-maintained one by using trimmers; and then prepping it up by using a beard comb for clearing out any dead skin or combing out any beard-ruff. Combing your beard also increases blood circulation in the area.
Beard color: Use a beard color to simply look younger or match the color of your beard with the color of your hair.
Diet: One of the most important aspects is to increase protein intake and have a healthy diet for hair growth.
The rules of No-Shave November are to stay honest. So, flaunt your beard and celebrate the novel cause!
