7 Tips To Care For Your Beard At The Beach

1. Protect

Your beard acts as a UV protector for your skin. It shields your chin and jaw from harmful sun rays by up to 95 percent. It’s direct exposure to these sun rays leaves it more vulnerable to damage and drying. So, protect your face-protector! Spray some sunscreen on your beard, too.

All these contribute to friction on the skin, ergo, the itchiness. Protect your beard from the damaging summer heat by applying some essential oils and moisturizers!
