Facial Hair

Ladies and Gentlemen,  huddle up close! facial hair: It’s the Sizzling Summer season when the sun becomes your stalker. The bearded brethren might be feeling the heat, cursing why they fell for the oaths of the Brotherhood of Beards. It’s like wearing a woolly scarf in an inferno. Well, worry not, my furry friends; I’m here to lay down the gospel on facial hair management in this blazing season. But before you sink into despair, remember that winter was a cakewalk with your bushy insulation. We can’t let a bit of sun undo all that, can we? Strap in because this ain’t another click-bait “10-life-changing-hacks-you-won’t-believe” kind of guide. I promise you this: by the end of the guide, you will survive summer with your stubble and rock it so hard that the Sun might need sunglasses! Stay with me; this is your one-way ticket to becoming the Sultan of Summer Stubbles.

Summer Beard Styles to Keep You Feeling Cool

Let’s get this straight—deciding on a summer beard style is kind of like choosing an ice cream flavor on a scorching day. You want something refreshing that won’t melt down your arm (or, in this case, something that won’t turn your face into a sauna). Enter the fantastic four of summer facial hair: the Chin Strap, the Short Beard, the Stubble, and the Goatee. Each has its unique charm to keep you cool while looking at fire.

The Chin Strap is for those who appreciate helmet aesthetics off the bike. It’s the facial hair equivalent of a minimalist’s dream. Just a strip of hair lining your jaw that says, “I like structure but also enjoy a little breeze on my cheeks.” Be careful; not connecting the sideburns to the chin could leave you looking more like an amateur crop circle than a suave gent.

Ah, the Short Beard—it’s like the Chin Strap’s older, slightly bushier brother. This low rider of facial hair lets you keep the face cozy without inducing face sweat. It’s all about that #DistinguishedLife while giving a nod to practicality. Remember, a short beard is not an excuse for negligence. Keep it neat, or risk the dreaded neckbeard territory.

Then we have the Stubble—the 5 o’clock shadow that liked the place so much that it signed a summer lease.

It’s the lazy man’s dream—a little rough, a little rugged, and very low maintenance. With its unassuming charm, it whispers, “I’m not trying too hard, but I am trying.” Keep it trimmed, or you’re just five missed shaves away from being a werewolf in July.

Lastly, the Goatee – the classic rebel amongst beard styles. It says, “I’m corporate Monday through Friday, but come the weekend, I ride with outlaws.” It’s for the chap who wants facial hair that doubles as a conversation starter. “Goatee or not goatee?” – that is the question.

So, while you’re sipping that pina colada and smirking at the sun, let your summer beard be the statement piece that screams, “Yeah, I’ve got this summer thing on lock.”

Rules to Follow for a Comfortable Summer Beard

Isn’t summer just the perfect contradiction for all my bearded brethren? On one hand, the warm weather and cool beach-side breezes are beckoning us to step outside. But, heaven forbid, we step outside, the sun glaring down on us, and our facial foliage is nearly as suffocating as listening to Grandma’s never-ending “When will you get married?” rant.

So, what do we do? Do we succumb to the pressure and shave off our glorious winter-grown mane for a slight chance at comfort? Not on my watch, dear reader! Instead, let’s discuss some practical strategies that help us comfortably navigate this summer furnace with our beards intact.

First up in your summer survival kit: Your trusty trimmer. I hear the folks gasping already, but hold your horses, I am not referring to a complete mow-down here! A simple, minor trim once in a while can quite literally give your beard some room to breathe. Think of it as a summer haircut but for your beard. Trimming reduces the sauna-like heat accumulation, making you feel a little less like you’re standing in the sun, and helps maintain the well-groomed look that the ladies (and men) love.

Next, get yourself a comb and some discipline. Regularly combing your beard can magically make it fluffier and more breathable.

Plus, no one likes a beard that mimics a bird’s nest. So, phew! All that effort you put into growing a beard wouldn’t go in vain.

Finally, while the summer sun is a great source of Vitamin D, staying outdoors too long is like willingly signing up for an oven-roasting session. Take it from me: As appealing as being a roast chicken might sound, it doesn’t feel good, especially when you’ve got a beard acting as a thermal blanket. So, if you’re stepping out in the sun, ensure you find some shade! It’s an excellent excuse to sneak in a summer drink, too; I’m just saying!

So remember reader, whether you’re on a romantic beach walk or challenging the heat with outdoor chores, these simple tactics will help you beat the summer at its own game. Or at least let you retain your beloved beard while trying to survive the summer inferno. Because, let’s face it, without beards, we’re just cats without whiskers, women without lipstick, and summer without ice cream!

Summer Beard Advantages

Ah! The sweet little perks of facial hair under that scorching summer sun are always overlooked, aren’t they? Well, buckle up because your summer is about to get much “cooler,” thanks to your whiskers!

Firstly, let’s not ignore that your flamboyant beard is practically a natural sunblock, protecting your cherubic cheeks and that macho jawline from harmful UV rays like a shield in an epic face-off against the formidable Summer Sun. Thank heavens for beards, right?

Then there’s this tiny yet significant perk—sweat absorption. That’s right! Your beard works tirelessly as your face’s private towel, absorbing any ‘unwanted rain’ that threatens to show up unannounced and giving you a somewhat less “damp” look. It brings a new sense to ‘beard value,’ doesn’t it?

Now, let’s not forget what a beard can really do—transform you into the Zeus of summer style! Whether you’re rocking a Hawaiian shirt or simply going shirtless (cheeky, I must say), your beard will be the star, turning heads and leaving trails of envy behind. Summer outfits are incomplete without beards, my friend. They are like the ‘chili flakes’ to your ‘Margherita’!

So there you go; why moan about the heat when you can rejoice over your facial fuzz? As they say, “When life gives you a summer, grow a beard and shade it!” Now that’s a warm (or should I say ‘hot’?) thought to ponder!

Top-Notch Tips for Flawless Summer Beard Care

Let’s face it—no matter how much you adore your majestic mane (also known as your beard), Summer can make it feel like your face is cuddling a Wookie from Star Wars. How do we keep this ecosystem flourishing and not ruin our reputation of being “irresistibly bearded,” you may ask? Very simple: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Ladies have their 10-step skincare routine. Simply slaying a bit of moisturizer on the facial hedge can do wonders for us men.

It seems as easy as remembering the rules of childhood games, right? But watch out; make sure the moisturizer is beard-friendly. Is licking your lips equal to hydrating them? No! (Sadly, life isn’t that simple.) Likewise, not all moisturizers fit the bill. It’s like thinking all music is good music; have you ever heard of the Yodeling Walmart Kid? Exactly.

What’s next? Ah, yes. Sunscreen. It’s a sad truth that we still associate sunscreen with the Summer holidays rather than daily care.

Listen here; even though your beard might look like a mini sun umbrella for your face, UV rays can still sneak in. Dermatologists are not lying when they relentlessly tell you to wear sunscreen. “But hey, my skin is covered with this awesome beard!” I hear you grumble. Well, Mr. Beards-r-us, being bearded doesn’t let you off the hook. The skin beneath still needs protection! So, unless you want to play hide-and-seek with sun damage, make it a habit to smear some SPF on your beard.

And finally, proper beard trimming can make the heat bearable. Let me explain: A hot day means beads of sweat. If you’re battling a jungle under your nose, guess where that sweat ends? Yup. Pooling inside your beard makes you feel like you are drowning in your sweat. Yuck! It’s time to call the barber and make him your new best friend. I am not saying go bald-faced. Just keep it tame enough to let some air through, yet still be worthy of a “damn, nice beard” compliment. So, there you have it, folks! Your summer guide to avoiding a sweaty, dried-up beard and retaining that dashing look, even in 40-degree heat.

Helpful Beard Products for the Hot Season

Listen up, my bearded compatriots, lest your facial fuzz becomes a summer tragedy rather than a triumph! Let’s discuss the holy trinity of beard salvation during those sweat-inducing months.

First on the altar of beardless is Beard Oils – those divine concoctions that are as essential to your face-mane as a cold beer is to a BBQ. These little bottles of wonder provide a cocktail of nourishment that is more refreshing than a dip in the pool on a sweltering day. Say goodbye to beardruff and the texture of a brillo pad and hello to soft whiskers that glisten under the sun like the dew on a freshly cut lawn.

Enter Beard Balms, the trusty sidekick of beard oils – and together; they’re like Batman and Robin for your face. The balm commands your unruly beard to stay put and look sharp; it’s like disciplinary action but for hair. Rub some on, and not only does your beard feel like it’s been hugged by a cloud, but it also holds its shape like a champ in the heavyweight category of beard contests.

And please, for the love of your good-looking mug, don’t disregard the unsung hero of the trio—sunscreen products. Even the most rugged outdoorsy types don’t want to sport the ‘lobster chic’ look. Sunscreen makes sure that the skin under your manly mane stays as healthy as a green smoothie. So, apply it generously to avoid the “crispy critter” look—unless you’re going for that, in which case, carry on!

Remember, gentlemen, a well-groomed beard is like a fine wine – it needs attention and care to shine truly during those summer soirees. Keep your products close, and your beard will thank you by not mutating into a ball of hay. Stay fabulous, my furry friends.

Keeping Yourself Hydrated and Healthy

Right, gentlemen, let’s talk hydration. Because you’re not a cactus, and your beard certainly isn’t one. Drinking H2O isn’t just about quenching your insatiable thirst during a heatwave; it’s like giving your whiskers a tall glass of ‘grow juice.’ Think about it: your beard is an extension of your skin, and without water, well, you’re telling your hair to take a hike through the Sahara.

But don’t just stop at drenching your insides, oh no. A healthy diet is your beard’s BFF. We’re talking about munching on things packed with vitamins and proteins. Why? Because your mane isn’t just going to settle for any old scraps. It’s got standards, and if you’re feeding it junk, it’ll look like junk—simple. Keep it classy with the veggies and lean meats, and maybe treat it to an avocado. You might feel like a hipster, but your beard will thank you.

So splash on the water, scoff down the nutrients, and watch your face fuzz flourish. It’s not rocket science; it’s just beard sense!


So, there you have it, folks, the inside scoop, straight from the horse’s mouth, or should I say, the beard’s edge. No more blaming the sun for your witty whiskers, no more hiding in your air-conditioned caves. This summer, your beard’s going to rock the block! And remember, while your trusty beard trimmer and moisturizer are your summer superheroes, nothing boosts beard health like good old H2O. Drink up, my bearded brethren! Now go forth, embrace that face fur, and make every day feel like the first day at the beach. Because let’s be honest, who needs a six-pack when you’ve got a beard?
