    1. Moisturize

      Oil4Nuez AcresDo you use regular face soap on your hair? No. You use proper shampoo and conditioner. This should be true for beards as well. Luckily, there are plenty of great beard–specific products in the marketplace that offer special botanicals to help soften your beard and keep it from getting dry. When perusing the offerings on shelves, make sure the type of product matches beard type and boasts a pleasant smell. “Gentlemen of all ages are love the scent of our Nuez Acres Beard Oil,” co-Founder Nancy Wingham says.

        2. Condition

A dry, scratchy beard will make you feel uncomfortable, and the only way to avoid this is by using beard oil. A good beard conditioner will moisturize your beard, and keep it healthier.

            3. Oil your beard

              Pecans3Facebook/Nuez AcresAfter conditioning, oiling a beard softens the hairs further. It also offers the added advantage of warding off dreaded beard-dandruff. Good beard oil such as a blend of pecans, argan oil, tuberose and jojoba oil from Nuez Acres will also make your beard smell amazing.

              How often should you apply beard oil?

              • If you live in a dry climate or have dry skin or hair, apply it daily.
              • If you have oily skin or hair or live in a humid area climate, apply it two to three times per week
              • If you notice oily buildup or your beard gets greasy, apply less often.

              4. Disinfect your beard

                Beards can get pretty gross thanks to food, sweating, sneezing and others occurrences. It is important to add a measurable antibacterial beard balm when washing. This will further soften the beard and also kill all microscopic germs.

                  5. Trim, trim, trim

                    Trimming is essential to keeping a beard looking well-kept and healthy. Use scissors instead of trimmers for the best results. Trimmers are more likely to create split ends, while scissors allow you to be more precise.

                    With these five easy steps, your beard or moustache will be the envy of every household: soft and smooth, and perfect for close encounters.
