Beards Are Awesome

Today is a guest post by Bobby Propes, awesome beard aficionado

Anyone with a beard knows two things:

1) Beards are awesome

2) They can be hard to maintain

This is evidenced by dry skin, wiry, coarse beard hair, beard itch and even breakouts on the skin under your beard. All of these things can be easily avoided with some simple maintenance using a beard paste. Applying a beard paste to your beard regularly can help with these problems in many ways.

A beard paste will re-hydrate your beard and the skin underneath which will quickly cut down on itch and dry, wiry hairs. This is because a beard paste puts a protective layer on your individual beard hairs, as well as a protective layer on the skin. This layer keeps your beard looking shiny and clean and the skin underneath moisturized and protected from breakouts.

By applying a beard paste just a few times a week, you will not only be making it easier to maintain your beard, you will also be encouraging more beard growth.

That's what is so great about farragio's first impression All-Natural Moisturizing Face Cream. Because it's made with shea butter and almond oil, it makes a fantastic beard paste, and that will only increase your beard's awesomeness!

July 15, 2020

Your skin is made up of three layers: the subcutis, the dermis, and the epidermis. The epidermis is the outermost layer - the skin that you see - which consists mainly of cells called keratinocytes that form several layers that constantly grow outwards as the exterior cells die and flake off. (National Geographic, Health & Human Body)

Exfoliating your skin is what helps aid the sloughing off of those dead skin cells, and is one of the most important steps in your skin care routine. Exf...
