Keeping Your Beard Looking Its Best After the Beach

groomingthe best beard tips for the beach

The beach can be a precarious place for a beard with all of that sand and sea. We spoke to Beardbrand’s Eric Bandholz to learn more about how to keep your beard looking fresh on the beach and after, while avoiding looking like a sea monster after coming out of the surf (hint, fluffing is involved).

Here are Eric’s top tips:

  • Rinse the beard immediately after being in the salt water. Find a fresh water shower because the salt can dry out your beard and make it really brittle.
  • When you get out of the ocean, run your fingers through your beard and give it a little ‘fluff’. This will help you look a little more presentable.
  • When you are home and hop in the shower, wash that beard really good. Be sure to use some beard softener to bring back the moisture the beach took out of it. It’s like a conditioner so let it sit in your beard for anywhere from 30 seconds to five minutes.
  • When you are out of the shower just use a little beard oil and you are good to go.
