It’s November and time for guys to put up their razors, shavers, and trimmers for the month and help raise cancer awareness by not shaving. This worldwide movement has raised awareness and millions of dollars for men’s health issues such as prostate cancer, and other associated charities.
The pure hilarity of men everywhere starting to look bushy, rugged, and like they joined a ZZ top roadie group is a great time for everyone. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy as it looks. Growing a beard is like growing and maintaining the perfect lawn; it takes patience, the right conditions, and a lot of hydration. Without the combination of these things you can end up looking how most lawns look: patchy, stubby, and dry.
NEUMA offers several solutions to the botheration’s of beard growing; check out our recipe guide below:
Challenge: My Beard Grows Slow and Patchy
Recipe: Wash your face twice-daily using reNeu shampoo; the corn mint extract is an amazing vasodilator that will encourage hair growth and even blood flow on the skins surface.
Challenge: The skin under my beard is oily and can get acne
Recipe: Scrub your face weekly using reNeu scalp therapy; this exfoliator is filled with all sorts of natural cleansers like fennel seed and bamboo fiber. On the other hand it will calm the skins oil production with calming oils such as vanilla and lavender. Key Point: if you exfoliate you always have to follow up with a moisturizer.
