What is the best way to care for a beard?
Did you know another word for shaving is pogonotomy? While you can grow your beard all year long, the best time to start and maintain your facial hair is in the summer, as there's a sharp increase in men’s testosterone levels, according to AskMen.The average beard has close to 30,000 whiskers, so it's important to keep yourself well-groomed as we take steps towards being social IRL instead of URL. After all, beard or no bread, your facial hair is still skin and hair you need to take care of.
First things first, make sure the skin's pH level is balanced. The pH level of the skin refers to how acidic or alkaline it is. Usually, your pH level can be measured on a scale of 1-14, with 1 being the most acidic to 14 being the most alkaline, 7 is considered a neutral reading for your skin’s pH.
Our skin has a thin, protective layer on its surface, referred to as the acid mantle. This acid mantle is made up of sebum (free fatty acids) excreted from the skin’s sebaceous glands, which mixes with lactic and amino acids from sweat to create the skin’s pH, which ideally should be slightly acidic – at about 5.5.
Fur's products, including the Fur Oil is built to not disrupt your pH levels on your hair or any part of your skin. All Fur products are also Gynecologically Tested so that even the most intimate areas don't face pH imbalance.

Best Products For Beards
Wash your beard with a non-irritating shampoo, cleanser, or the Fur Silk Scrub times each week. This will keep your beard clean, smelling great, and prevent any build up caused by sweat or excess oil from accumulating in your beard.
To keep your beard soft and shiny, condition it regularly with beard oil. This also moisturizes the skin underneath your beard to prevent itchiness, control flakes, and maintain follicle health. One thing to note about beards is that they are only going to be as healthy as the skin underneath it.
After that, make sure you trim your hair regularly, remove any excess stubble with the right remover, and don't forget to add SPF! Remember, it's still skin and hair, just like the rest of you.
