Can It Be Done?

For some people, there is nothing sexier than a man with facial hair. Unfortunately, men don’t always take the extra steps to ensure that their facial hair is well maintained and looking its best, and an unruly and unkempt beard can quickly turn away potential dates. Properly caring for your facial hair will not only improve your overall appearance, but it will also give off a positive and confident attitude that others are attracted to.

Goatee, mustache, beard, no matter what type of facial hair you have, you must properly maintain it especially if you are active in the dating scene. Since your beard is made from hair it needs washed just as much as the hair that is growing on your head. Special shampoos and conditioners for beards are available, but the shampoo you have in your shower will work just fine. It may sound unusual, but using conditioner on your beard helps to make it softer and more kissable.

Facial Hair Products

Part of maintaining facial hair is using high quality products that you can find at your local shave store. Razors, shaving cream, clippers and combs are a few of the items you will need to properly maintain your facial hair. Keep in mind that, even though there are hundreds of facial hair care products on the market, choosing the least expensive item is not always the best option. The skin on your face can be more sensitive than other areas of your body, and using low quality products could result in irritation, dryness and redness. A good general rule of thumb is to test new products on an inconspicuous area and then wait for 24 hours. If no irritation or redness occurs, continue to use the product. However, if you experience any irritation, discontinue use immediately.

Keep Food Out

No one wants to date a man with food stuck in his beard. Not only is it unattractive, but it is unsanitary as well. Unfortunately, trying to keep food out of your beard is easier said than done. Thankfully, simply wiping your beard with a napkin while you eat can take care of this troublesome problem. The most important thing to remember when taking your date to a restaurant is to be mindful of your beard, and implement good table manners to ensure you and your beard are putting your best foot forward.

Keep it Short Shave

A long beard may give the impression that you are wise but it also adds years to your age, making you appear older than you really are. Long beards are also harder to care for requiring extra time and attention that many men don’t just don’t have in their daily schedule. Keeping your beard short allows you to have the facial hair without the added responsibilities that are required to properly maintain a long beard. Also, keep your neck shaved. A soft, clean neck is an inviting place for your special someone to nuzzle up to.
