If there’s one question that irritates the beardsmen of today is when someone repeatedly asks them, “How can you keep a beard in summers”? Although maintaining a beard during summertime can be tough, it’s not an impossible task. We got in touch with hair experts Rod Anker and Jawed Habib and dermatologist Rajat Khandari who tell us what it takes to keep your beard cool in the scorching heat.

1)Clean thy beard: If you want your beard to be healthy, clean your beard two times a day. The sweat, hot temperature and dampness in this weather can hamper your skin causing irritation, bad odour and dryness. Therefore, use a beard wash that contains a blend of natural oils to hydrate and replenish your skin. However, do not wash your beard in excess as it might make your beard dry and abrasive.

2)Moisturize thy beard: In summers, your beard hair tends to be coarse, which causes irritation. Use a beard moisturiser to combat beard itching. You can opt for a moisturiser that contains ingredients like aloe, chamomile, and tea tree oil.

3)Hydrate thy beard: Dehydration is quite common in hot summers. When your beard is dehydrated, it becomes dry and brittle. Hence, for a healthy beard, adequate hydration is a necessity.

4)Soften thy beard: A soft beard is easy to maintain. Use a beard oil or conditioner to keep your beard hair soft and cool during the summer season.

5)Trim thy beard: A heavy beard can lead to an itchy skin or even acne. It would be preferable to trim the beard as a trimmed beard is easier to maintain.
