Your Ultimate Guide To Beard Care

Maintaining a soft, healthy beard requires two things: care and grooming. Beard care is all about nourishing the facial hair and skin underneath to keep it clean and hydrated. Our guide to beard grooming includes tips and product recommendations for keeping your beard soft, smooth and well-suited to your style.



STEP 1 CLEANSE SKIN: To start – cleanse your face with an energizing facial cleanser such as our gel face wash for men to remove dirt and dead skin cells.

STEP 2 HANDS-ON GROOMING: Dispense a few drops our beard oil in palms and smooth over hands and fingers. Gently brush your fingers down the sides of your beard along the cheeks, chin and neck. If you have a mustache, use your fingertips to coat the hair.

STEP 3 DON'T FORGET YOUR HAIR: Smooth any remaining beard oil product on your hands through your hair and scalp. This oil adds shine and control for a heathy-looking hairstyle.

STEP 4 FINISHING TOUCH: After applying beard oil, finish with a comb to smooth and style your facial hair.

Beard Grooming Techniques

Short Beard Care

Kiehl’s Creme with Silk Groom is a great companion to care for a stubble beard or five o’clock shadow. With Silk Powders and readily-absorbed oils to nourish skin — including Jojoba Oil — this lightweight, non-greasy styling cream is a customer favorite for grooming short beard styles.

Dry Beard Care

If you experience a flaky or itchy beard, we’d recommend adding a beard oil that combats dryness to your routine. There are steps that you can take with our beard care formulas to maintain your facial hair while caring for skin dryness underneath. Our beard oil with an earthy, aromatic blend of Cedarwood and Sandalwood Oils, exfoliates and nourishes. It also smoothes and tames for a hydrated, healthy-looking beard.
