Maintaining and growing out that facial hair for Movember and No-Shave November can be a struggle, but it’s all worth growing for a great cause – the fight against cancer. Here’s a few tips I share with my clients and also some grooming techniques I use to help get them through the month.
Always remember three key points: cleanse, moisturize, and groom. If you’re new to growing that amount of facial hair, keeping your skin clean and moisturized is essential. Try not to use cleansers that contain high levels of drying alcohols. Drying out the skin can lead to more irritation. Esquire Grooming’s 3-in-1 Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash contains key ingredients that cleanse and eliminates build up along with Pro-Vitamin B5 which provides moisture and improves elasticity.
If you have a few ingrown hairs carefully remove them with clean and sanitized tweezers. A hot towel or steam should be used prior to soften the skin and open up the pores. If your skin has become a little itchy or irritated, the Esquire Grooming Beard Oil can be used to help. Once you’ve obtained a little length on your beard or mustache, it’s time to put them in the hands of a professional. Although you may be able to tame that new growth with the Esquire 5-n-1 Trimmer, the precision grooming it needs will be a task best suited for your barber or stylist.
For my Licensed Professionals, Esquire Grooming offers great products and tools for servicing your clients. The new Cordless Professional Clipper (coming soon) is great for trimming and shaping. Our light hold Wax is great for controlling frizz and the Beard Oil, delicately highlighted with Oud fragrance, hydrates the beard and moisturizes the skin.
