Nerdy Black Bear is back with another hygiene post that will hopefully inspire you to be a better groomed man.
Today's topic is facial hair and how we can improve and take care of our facial follicles. In modern society, facial hair, mainly beards, has become a symbol of masculinity - as well as a right of passage - for men to express ourselves through our individual personalities and style.
Even fashion designers have started using bearded men in their shows and ads, which is a big step forward in the fashion community where some fashion designers are still stuck in the early 90s, using men who have to be smooth and fully shaven from head to toe. To see more burly and hairy men coming up in the fashion world is a big step forward in my book. And to add the fuzzy cherry on top, facial hair has been added to the fetish lexicon in the gay community, not just for bears, but for gay men in general. So facial hair has surpassed just being fashionable and now it has become a real asset.
Wash your face with cold water. It can cool the area and help soothe irritation. Sometimes an anti itching cream can work as well. This won't stop the irritation forever, but it will keep you from scratching your face off.
A lot of people make the rookie mistake by trimming there beards or mustaches too early in the growing process, wait a couple of months before trimming so that the hair is at a length you're comfortable with. The reason for this is if you cut it at the early stages and a mistake is made it will take awhile hair to regrow back. A small amount of men out there can't grow facial hair and sometimes that's due to genetics or medical issues. If you see a lot of patches where hair is growing in certain places on your face and not others, then you might want to change the style or make the ultimate decision of shaving it all off.
