Shower Beer: 6 Good reasons to Bring Beer into Your Grooming Routine

Okay, so when something called Shower Beer popped up in our Instagram feed in April, we immediately thought it must be an April Fool’s joke.

Sure, we’re all for multitasking products but a brew that’s designed for drinking and washing up simultaneously seems wrong. But it appears to be a real collaboration between Snask, a Swedish creative agency, and a local Pangpang brewery, or we fell for an elaborate hoax.

Either way, it supposedly sold out, so because you can’t get your hands on the pale ale that does the work of a body wash, we found a handful of other beer-based grooming options that will help you clean up nicely. Bonus: None of them leave you smelling like a dank dive bar. Just remember to use them responsibly (i.e. do not attempt to drink them.)

Broo Craft Beer Barber Collection

The new collection from beery brand Broo (get it?) focuses aims to take care of all your grooming needs with just a few products. Condi-shave Cream, Shower Session Wash, Mug & Mane Lotion use malted barley and hops flowers to nourish you from head-to-toe. $6 each,

Duke Cannon Big Ass Beer Soap duke cannon beer soap

Suds up with a soap roughly the size of a can of beer and containing the same stuff. Duke Cannon teamed up with Old Milwaukee to create a bar that repurposes the brewery’s skin-loving beer ingredients. $10.50,

Duffy’s Beer Craft IPA Beer Conditioner

Sure, beer makes hair shiny and luxurious but we wouldn’t recommend dumping a can of it over your head. Because the smell. Formulated with craft beer, which is rich in strand strengthening roasted barley and malt, dandruff killing hops, and some not-found-in-beer, naturally good-for-your-hair ingredients, like Acai, Sunflower Seed and Aloe, this conditioner makes your mane look awesome. $19.95,

Lush Cynthia Stout Shampoo

 See above for why not to wash hair with your brew. But lathering with this stout inspired suds is another story. Made from what you’d get at a British pub, this protein-packed shampoo softens and thickens hair better than a pint. $36.99 for 8.4 fl. oz.,

Brooklyn Brewery Sorachi Ace Beer Soap

Another brewed bar, this one from Brooklyn Brewery, which brought their Sorachi Ace over to local soap and candle maker Apotheke to infuse into one of their gloriously scented soaps. This one smells of lemongrass and cedar. $9,

Does beard growth oil work? What you should know
Man putting beard oil on his beard.

Growing the perfect beard is a lifelong quest for some, and though there are plenty of tips to help you grow a beard, sometimes you can benefit from a little outside intervention. You might have seen adverts for beard growth oil and wondered if that would help you grow a thicker and more lustrous beard, along with various other oils for softening or brushes and other tools to help maintain your skin.

There's a lot of options when it comes to the world of facial hair grooming, because for your beard to look full and well groomed, you need to not only trim it to the right shape but also make sure that both the hair and the skin of your face are well looked after and in good condition. You might also just need to be patient, as it can take some time for facial hair to grow in to the length that you want. The basic advice for growing in a beard that looks great are to give it time and make sure you're taking care of your health -- like getting enough sleep, eating a health diet, and taking exercise. But we all know we're supposed to do those things anyway, and there are some products that can help give your beard a nudge along the way.

How often should you change your razor blades?

It's a hassle and an annoyance, but when it comes to your daily shaving ritual something that you absolutely don't want to skip is changing out your razor blade. Trying to shave with a dull razor is bad for your skin and can cause razor bumps, plus creating a higher likelihood of problems like infections, and it will do a poor job of removing hair, resulting in a patchy shave. If you're not up for trying out a straight razor, then you'll need to get into the habit of regularly swapping out the replaceable blades on your razor or using fresh disposable razors instead. Knowing when to swap out your old blades for new ones will help keep your skin happy and your face looking its best, so our guide can help you work out how often you need to change your razor blades.

How often you should change your razor blades
According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, you should change your razor blades or throw away disposable razors after every five to seven shaves. High-quality razor blades should last five to seven shaves if you take care of them properly and keep them clean. However, cheaper disposable razors may wear out sooner.
Signs it’s time to change your razor blades include skin irritation after shaving, a less close shave, patchy areas or spots missed, skin that still feels rough after, dullness of the blades, feeling hairs are getting pulled instead of cut, and excessive friction of the blades across your skin that it feels like you have to drag it over your skin.
Moreover, a razor that has an accumulation of gunk that can’t be rinsed away should be immediately discarded, as this causes nicks and infections by dragging unevenly across your skin and introducing harbored bacteria into your pores.
