Whether you’re a gentleman who has been growing a beard for years or just starting out, it can be difficult to know what products are going to work best to be polished. Luckily, there are plenty of options out there when it comes to beard care products. We've put together some tips on how to choose the right ones so that your beard stays healthy and happy.
#1. Choose the right beard oil.
When it comes to choosing the right beard oil, you'll want to look for several things. First and foremost, make sure that your choice of beard oil doesn't contain any parabens or sulfates. According to Healthline, sulfates were once perceived to be cancer-causing agents, but further scientific evidence debunked these claims. However, this doesn't mean that sulfate-containing product is safe or appropriate for everyone. It can be damaging to certain types of hair, and it may even cause skin irritation in some people.
Meanwhile, according to the Environmental Working Group, the concern with paraben is that scientific studies suggest that this chemical can disrupt hormones in the body and harm fertility and reproductive organs, affect birth outcomes, and increase the risk of cancer. They can also cause skin irritation. Secondly, you'll want a pure product with natural ingredients such as jojoba oil or argan oil; synthetic oils may provide some benefit but don't offer anything special over more basic oils like argan or sunflower seed butter (which also happen to be cheaper).
Polished Gentleman Beard Oil will make your beard softer. It uses a large amount of vitamin E to strengthen and fill out your beard hair, making it incredibly soft. It contains tea tree oil with beard-loving properties to keep your mane clean and dandruff-free—meaning, you can be proud of that sexy face foliage and show it off to whoever you please. Formulated without potentially harmful chemicals and toxins—paraben-free, sulfate-free, and cruelty-free. Infused with nature’s finest ingredients, including Jojoba Oil that strengthens hair with Vitamin E, Argan Oil that moisturizes skin, Rosemary Extract that improves blood circulation while preventing premature graying, Almond Oil that makes hair stronger and soft to touch, and Cedarwood Oil that keeps hair follicles strong and healthy—this Beard Oil will turn itchy, dry, and cranky beard into softer, shinier, and glorious facial hair.
2. Use a quality beard brush and comb.
A quality beard comb and/or brush is key to getting a good beard. A wide-toothed comb will help you detangle your hair, while a comb designed for beards will have teeth that are spaced out more closely than those on regular combs. You should also make sure that your comb is clean and free of debris before using it on your beard. Meanwhile, a quality beard brush is the building block of all good grooming regimens. Beard brush, with each stroke, works to carry your skin's natural oil called sebum from root to tip. It also works to lift and remove dirt as well as grime from your facial hair—leaving your beard prize-winningly shiny and clean.
Polished Gentleman offers the ultimate solution for messy beard shape, tangled facial hair, filthy beard lines, untidy cheek line cuts, and twisted sideburns neck. Our Beard Grooming Kit is a box full of manly goodies to fit perfectly in your pocket.

#3. Select the right wash and shampoo.
Stay true about using shampoo and conditioner formulated to work with facial hair. Beard and mustache hairs, as well as the skin beneath them, will become dry when using regular body soap, shampoo, or conditioner. If you decide to go with those types of products, be ready to deal with an itchy, brittle beard and beardruff. When choosing a shampoo and conditioner, you should look for sulfate-free products. Sulfates can dry out your hair and scalp, which is why they're not recommended for use on the face. Look for shampoos and conditioners that are mild and gentle on your skin as well.
It is also important to choose a shampoo and conditioner that is pH balanced so it doesn't strip away all of the natural oils in your beard or leave it feeling greasy afterward. Lastly, be careful about using anything with a strong scent since this might irritate sensitive skin under there too - just keep those scents at bay until after you shower!

#4. Consider a beard balm.
A beard balm is a solid, waxy substance that melts on your skin when applied. It can help moisturize your beard, reduce itching and dandruff, and protect against sun damage. Beard balms are especially good for those with thicker beards because they're less likely to clog pores than oil or wax would be. If you're looking for beard balm, look for products made from natural ingredients like beeswax or cocoa butter—these are more gentle on the skin than man-made chemicals like paraffin or petroleum jelly.

This awesome beard softener for men is made with 100% natural ingredients to promote calmness for facial skin, making it ideal for beardsmen with sensitive skin.
#5. Don’t ignore your skin.
The skin around your beard needs to be moisturized, too. If you neglect this part of the equation and skip on a daily moisturizer, your skin will dry out and flake off in clumps. This is not good for anyone who wants their beard to look healthy and full-looking—and it's especially important if you're trying to grow out facial hair!
Be sure to use a daily moisturizer that’s formulated specifically for men's skin (or at least one with lots of ingredients like jojoba oil or coconut oil). You don't have to go overboard with the amount; just make sure it doesn't feel greasy or slick after applying it each morning and evening. Plus, don't forget those areas close enough for touch: ears (especially if they're sensitive), nose bridge area around nostrils (where bacteria build up), mouth corners where bacteria gather faster than anywhere else on our face due to its open nature.
Making sure you have the right care products for your beard can make a huge difference in how it looks, feels, and grows.
