Grooming & Maintenance
Infamous beard itch
After a clean shave and your moustache is starting to bloom, you might find that you're starting to feel “beard itch” as hair grows. Beard itch occurs at two stages. Initially, as hair starts to grow and break through the skin, and then secondly, as hair grows longer it starts to take moisture from the skin to keep itself hydrated. That itch is actually skin becoming dry, so make sure you’re keeping skin moisturised. You could even take it up a level by using beard oil on your moustache to keep the hair hydrated.
Grooming hair growth
When it comes to upkeep and maintenance, we’d recommend using a moustache comb and scissors to begin to shape your moustache. Sharp facial hair scissor blades are designed for precision cutting and shaping of facial hair. A comb will brush through the hair, to lift any hair flat to the skin before trimming and then neaten the moustache after.
If you’ve already got a comb, it’s possible to buy facial hair scissors on their own to trim your moustache.
To keep your moustache in the spotlight, nose trimming can be a given for some men who have unruly nose hair. The G.E.A.R. Nose Hair Trimmer is a quick, painless and safe trimmer for nose and ear hair. The premium quality blades won't pull hair or cut the skin.
Hair grows at different rates and stages and after a clean shave, that can often mean the arrival of an ingrown hair or two. When it comes to preventing ingrown hairs, regular, weekly exfoliation is key but you can remove ingrown hairs too. Most will clear up themselves within a day or two, but if you have persistent ingrown hair you can use a Point Tweezer to remove the hair once it’s broken the skin.
