By now we're all aware of the recent study that men's beards carry more germs than dog fur. Professor Andreas Gutzeit, of Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinicevery, reported that every sampled beard in the test group was crawling with bacteria, and nearly half had bugs that were hazardous to human health ... um, yuck.
What to do if you love your facial hair, but don't want your loved ones showing up in quarantine gear for family functions?
Start with a Clean Beard:
While in the shower, shampoo your beard – pure and simple, give it a good wash! Remember to rinse well, get out all the suds and grime. At least once a week you should use an exfoliating wash to nurture the skin beneath your beard – give it some TLC, cleanse and rejuvenate this forgotten skin. Giving this part of your face some attention, exfoliating, will both remove dirt and impurities that clog pores, helping prevent breakouts, and release dead skin cells a.k.a. “beard-ruff” (beard dandruff - more common than you may think).
Keep it Clean Throughout the Day:
Between washes, your beard is constantly subjected to the elements - food, drink, wind ... cold sniffles. The associated bacteria and germs are always looking for a cozy spot to nest, especially around the nose and mouth - right where you have been grooming your masterpiece.
