Your facial hair is just like the hair of your head, it gets oily. That is why, it is very significant to wash it thoroughly in order to achieve a net trim. Apply our Beard Shampoo on your beard then dry it with a towel. Be sure not to use a shampoo that can make your skin dry. We recommend you to use it every 2-3 days. Use a clean towel in drying your beard. If is possible use a natural Beard Shampoo without petrolatum, parabens, artificial fragances or colors.

3. How to Trim a Beard Neckline
When it comes to how to trim a beard neckline, numerous men are doing it the wrong way. The key is not to trim too high and avoid entering the face area. If you want to grow your beard the natural way, then you do not need a neckline. In this way is it simpler to maintain. However, for some guys, they feel too uncomfortable with their neck hair. The purpose of the neckline is to shape the bottom part of the beard. We recommend to use our Shaving Creams or Shaving Soaps for the neckline because is 100% natural without alcohol and any chemicals. Start shaving off all the beard which are under the neckline.
4. How to Apply the Shaving Cream or Shaving Oil
Wet the face and apply an almond sized amount of Shaving Cream to a shaving brush and use the brush to apply across the area to be shaved, the action of the brush and the cream will gently prepare the area to be shaved. Shave as normal and then rinse with clean and warm water.
The shaving cream can be applied with either a shaving brush or your fingers. Of course the brush has the added advantages of producing warm lather, further lifting the beard off your face, and gently exfoliating the skin, and you will save shaving cream too.
Other excellent option is to use a Shaving Oil because it is transparent and you can see through the oil. Try our English Shaving Oil 100% Natural & Organic.
When you are done trimming your beard, you will have to rinse your face in order to clean the loose hairs. Use a clean towel in drying your beard.
5. Apply an After Shave Balm or a Cooling After Shave Gel
The least you want is skin irritation right after you trim your beard. When you are done trimming/shaving your beard, make sure that you put on an After Shave Balm or a Cooling After Shave Gel without alcohol. This will keep your skin soft and moisturized and prevent irritation. We recommend you use our After Shave Balm or our Cooling After Shave Gel with Aloe Vera, both are scented with organic peppermint essential oil that has anti-inflamatory properties, and both are made in the UK without parabens, sulphates, artificial fragrances and colours which makes it ideal for all skin types including sensitive skin.
