5 Beard Care-Kit Essentials


Have you ever seen a really nice house but the front yard looked liked Jumanji?

And what was maintained looked like an overzealous machete spree took place?

Sure the first impression might have been memorable but this brief blog is to ensure your first impressions are memorable for the right reasons.


If you are going to have facial hair, of any length, let's ensure you bless it up the right way and shed some light on male grooming. The featured GQ magazine is the 6th beard must have, partially in the sense of it helped attain your attention, but mostly because it is one my favorite magazines that has given me enormous inspiration.


BEFORE you touch your facial hair with a blade, do yourself a favor and exfoliate the dead skin cells that have been on your face since junior year homecoming when you had to shave for the first time. The accumulated dead skin cells, dirt, oil, and other impurities that naturally accumulate on your skin may be part of the reason you are breaking out after shaving.


*NOTE: Don't go OCD with exfoliating more than 3 times a week as a general rule of thumb.

Also, be gentle and exfoliate with your fingertips so you do not irritate your skin more before you go putting razor blades all over it - that could add to your skin irritation.

Never undermine the importance of hydration: especially for your skin and, especially, especially before you go to shave it. Loss of skin moisture can cause irritation. Shaving can reduce your skins moisture...so the prevention of irritation lies in hydrating the skin before you shave. If you know your skin is sensitive, then I strongly recommend using a product that is specially for sensitive skin.


The straight razor is the ultimate facial hair game changer. It requires some hand eye coordination, practice, and the acceptance that you will slightly mess up a few times before mastery. Once over the learning curve, your benefits from the initial investment will begin to snowball into crisp - straight from the barbershop - tight edges and precision.


NO it won't replace your barber but it will add much more longevity to your haircuts and add a distinguishing line up superior to most traditional shaving razors. The cherry on top is the cost efficiency. The link below has 100 blades that come with the razor handle that will last you quite a while.

The Amazon links above, you can order the straight razor with 100 blades.


You can also order the Every Man Jack products,

All of which I personally use and recommend for the gentlemen with sensitive skin and seeking quality products.


Lastly, if you have never heard of GQ magazine or think you would like to check them out Amazon has the best deals for purchase - so I placed a link for that as well.

Thank you so much for your time, consideration, and commitment to learn more!
