Guide To Creating a Daily Beard Care Routine

Guide To Creating a Daily Beard Care Routine

Your beard is one of the first things a person will notice about you, and you want to ensure it leaves a positive first impression. A well-groomed beard without any flyaways that’s cleanly shaven and lives up to its full potential can help you easily meet more friends or potential mates than ever before.

Let’s take a look at everything you need to know about creating a daily beard care routine so you can make sure your beard stays healthy and attractive no matter what the circumstances might be.


Learn Your Beard Style

If you take a look at a lineup of three men, chances are high that each one of them will have a completely different approach to their facial hair. For some men, the shape and style of their beards can completely change the way they look.

When it comes to choosing a beard style, you first need to understand what might look best for your given face shape. There are four main face shapes that each tend to look best with specific beard variations: Square, Rectangular, Round, and Oval.

Beards for Square Faces

If you have a square-shaped face, you’ll want to try to trim precise lines near the cheekbones to accentuate your jawline while keeping the length of the beard fairly short. This face shape is excellent for circle beards, goatees, or royale beards that are mustaches anchored by a chinstrap.

Beards for Rectangular Faces

With a rectangular face, your goal is going to be to highlight the sturdy jawline you’ve got at the bottom of your face. This means keeping your beard shorter on the bottom and longer on the sides to show off a strong structure. You can do this with mutton chops, chin strips, or a chin strap-style beard.

Beards for Round Faces

For round faces, the goal is to make your face appear slimmer with an angled shave along the cheekbones. Boxed beards, Balbo beards, and anchor beards can help make your jawline look more pronounced as opposed to how it would look if you were entirely clean-shaven.

Beards for Oval Faces

For oval faces, you have the freedom to choose from pretty much any style. You have a lot more freedom: It’s time for you to explore the beard multiverse. 

Of course, these are just general guidelines — wear what you like, and the world will like it right back.

Get the Right Beard Products

The way you groom your beard is critical, but the products you use to get the job done might be even more so. A piece of art is only as good as the paint used to craft it, and this applies to your facial hair in every way.

There are a few products that we think every man should have in their arsenal to make their beard look its best.

Beard Oil

We use beard oil to strengthen your roots and thicken your hair to reduce itching and split ends. It’s one of the most important aspects of any beard health kit.

Here are a few oils to keep an eye on:

  • Beard Growth Oil: Helps stimulate healthy facial hair growth and combats that “new beard itch.” Hopefully, a full beard is just over the neckline horizon. 
  • Cedar Beard Oil: Hello, moisture; goodbye, itchiness. Powered by essential oils, this beard maintenance must-have keeps your facial hair as lush as an old-growth redwood forest. 
  • Sandalwood Beard Oil: Keep the dryness for vodka — not your beard. This beachy oil leaves behind a mean sheen for a beard you can’t help but stroke. 

Beard Shampoo and Conditioner

The hair on top of your head isn’t the only area where you should be concerned about cleanliness. A 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner is a necessary addition to your arsenal to help detangle and moisturize while also refreshing.

Shampoos help banish beard dandruff and dry skin — the two long-standing enemies of a healthy beard. The beard conditioner aspect lathers up for next-level hydration. 

Beard Brush

You can’t use anything to brush your beard and style it however you want – you need to use the finest products to get the best end result. Our Boar Bristle Brush will detangle without pulling, and it’s great for evenly distributing beard oil throughout your beard for healthy growth.

Beard Balm

After you brush your beard, it’s time to whip out the beard balm. 

Much like mustache wax, beard balms are all about shaping:

Derma Roller

Beard care is skin care. Sometimes, to get the beard of your dreams, you need to make it look fuller and voluptuous. You can do this with a Derma Roller, which is meant to stimulate beard growth and activate dormant follicles, helping you achieve a more full-looking beard with ease. 

These can also improve skin quality through collagen and keratin production while also giving you the ability to fill in gaps between your mustache and chin or any other areas where your beard fails to make the connection.


To style your beard, you need to be able to play around with it. And a beard trimmer gives you the most flexibility and effectiveness when it comes to getting the right look. Our PT45 Precision Trimmer is the result of years of development and research, giving you unparalleled power in the palm of your hand.

It has 45 unique trim settings to get the perfect cut every time, plus a 7,000 RPM motor for no painful hair pulling. With three-hour battery life and titanium-coated ceramic blades, you can make clean lines inside and outside the shower for maximum precision trimming.

It has a travel lock for taking your trimmer anywhere and an elegant charging stand so you can charge and protect your device when you’re not using it.

Get Everything You Need In One Place

That might sound like a lot of stuff, but The Beard Club’s growth kits have everything you need to get started without needing to put in a single ounce of thought. Our advanced growth kit has every one of these items, plus some beard vitamins, to make your hair even thicker and healthier than it already was.

Four Basic Beard Grooming Steps

Once you’ve got your arsenal of equipment ready to go and your beard style in mind, it’s time to get grooming. Here are a few basics to keep in mind as you go about your business.

1. Wash Your Beard

For one, before you start your shave, you want to give your beard a good wash. Take a nice hot shower to make sure your beard hairs are soft and smooth, and be sure to use a specially formulated beard wash to clean everything out as you should.

2. Trim To Shape

After your beard is washed and ready to go, you’ll want to start with your trimmer. Use your trimmer or clipper to style your beard however you want. Then, comb your beard super gently to get longer hairs first before tackling shorter hair. This helps prevent pulling and discomfort.

3. Get a Closer Shave

Once you’ve gotten your beard in the general shape that you’re looking for, you can go ahead and use a sharp razor to get all of the areas in between while also working on getting a closer shave in the areas that aren’t meant to have hair.

When using a razor, don’t forget to use a shaving cream or a moisturizer to soften the hair and make it easier for the razor to glide on top of your skin. Some people don’t even need a razor in the first place — our trimmer should get the job done in most scenarios.

4. Touch Up Throughout the Day

As far as general upkeep, you should keep a wooden Beard Comb on hand to help remove tangles in the office or anywhere else you and your beard might be traveling. And throughout the day, it’s a good idea to apply some beard oil to keep your hair moisturized and good to go all day long.

How To Grow Your Beard Out

If you’re not yet at a point where you’re able to grow your beard like you want, there are a few things you can do to cultivate a beautiful beard garden.

For one, use our beard growth oil. Our formula nourishes your hair follicles and the skin underneath to moisturize and soften your beard all at once. It promotes healthy growth while eliminating that “new beard” itch that you know and hate.

There are some other ways you can make your hair grow. Your diet can have an effect on the speed at which your hair gets longer. Good nutrition with certain key nutrients, like zinc, can be helpful for testosterone levels which can lead to hair growth. With that in mind, a good diet won’t be able to override genetics, but it can help existing hair look a little better.

Speaking of testosterone, strength training temporarily boosts testosterone levels and can make your hair grow fuller. Plus, exercise improves blood flow which can help stimulate hair follicle growth for an overall more uniform facial appearance. Getting extra physical activity into your day can do a lot of good for your overall wellness as well as your facial features.

Washing and moisturizing are essential for getting a full, luxurious beard that looks exactly how you want it to. Cleansing will remove dead skin and dirt from your pores which might block hair follicles from being able to grow out in the first place. 

Lastly, be sure to get enough sleep. Small studies have found that a lack of sleep can lower testosterone in young men, negatively affecting a person’s ability to grow a beard.

Getting to the Root of Your Routine

Getting the perfect beard requires a lot more than a great trimmer — you need a culmination of high-quality products and a vision of how you want your face to look as a whole. And when you follow a few simple tips and tricks, you’ll be on your way to one of the best beards in the game.

If you don’t even know where to start, our growth kits have everything you need to get going. Discover your best beard and take 15% off plus a free item when you take the quiz and get your personalized beard care plan.
