The beard is back! While shaving was “in” in recent years and decades and most men had neither moustache nor beard, it seems that having a beard has become very fashionable again these days, and more and more men are growing ‘men manes’. Think of the hipster look. But having a beard certainly has its challenges – for him as well as for her, particularly with regards to a proper beard care.

A beard can be itchy and scratching, it can be dirty and smelly from food residue, the skin under the beard can be dry, produce dandruff that hangs in the beard, and this all does not look too well maintained and might not give the best impression. So what to do, and how to do beard care correctly for a nice, healthy and shiny beard?
