When it comes to beard maintenance, quite a number of men are not very conversant. Some will follow the wrong procedure, others will use a low-quality trimmer, while some will opt to visit a salon rather than doing it themselves.

These inconveniences are experienced despite the availability of online resources, which can guide you how to maintain a beard easily and safely. The following are some handy tips for maintaining a beard.

1. Learn How to Use a trimmer

Before you begin shaving your beard or mustache, you should first pick a beard trimmer and learn the art behind it. How is the trimmer held? Which one is perfect for you? How much pressure should you apply? Is it safe to use in very wet conditions?

These are some of the guiding questions that will assist you to choose the right. It is always a good thing to get familiar with how to operate beard trimmers

A trimmer can clean up that winter beard you’ve been working on, making it look intentional and respectable.

2. Wash the beard occasionally

It pays to regularly wash the beard as this helps to eliminate dirt, dust, germs, bacteria and other things. It also moisturizes the hairs and skin and improves the circulation for a healthy looking beard.

You should use good cleansers that are safe for the skin and don’t contain toxic compounds. The use of good beard balms or beard oils is also encouraged as it helps in styling the beard as well as locking in moisture for better protection.

3. Know your face

The shape of your face will influence how well you look after trimming or maintaining your beard. Yes, a certain style may look good on your friend who has an oval shape. However, it may not look so good on your round face. You should use a handy chart to identify the styles that will suit your face.

4. Use good beard oil

Trimming a beard may look easy. And due to this many people trim it without using oil. Sadly, they irritate the skin, get injuries, and may leave the skin a little dry. It is always advised to use a good oil to moisturize the beard.
There are many types of beard oils on the market and it is important to pick a good one.

5. Work on the Mustache too

The beard and mustache go together. It’s critical to also maintain the mustache while working on the beard. Give it the same priority as you would to the beard and ensure you follow the best procedures.

Experts encourage people to apply moustache waxes since they offer protection to the hair follicles and skin. They also help to keep the hairs intact. You also should not forget about the hairs inside the nose.

Men Have Greater Endurance for Stress, says Study

For the study, the researchers reviewed the cases of 572 men evaluated for anti-incontinence surgery between 2007 and 2017

Men often tolerate stress urinary incontinence (SUI) for more than two years before seeking medical help and one-third put up with it for more than five years, a new study suggests.

SUI occurs when physical activity or exertion — a cough, heavy lifting, exercise — causes the bladder to leak urine.

The study, published in the journal Urology, found the median length of time the men had waited to seek treatment for their SUI was 32 months, with almost a third having waited more than five years.

They also found that patients in their 80s had waited a median of more than seven years.

“Male SUI is rare but is known to have significant negative psychosocial and emotional effects and represents a common reason for post-treatment anxiety and depression,” said co-author Allen Morey, Professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre in the US.

But there are simple and safe solutions — including minor surgeries — that can either help boost a weakened sphincter muscle for patients with minimal leakage (the sling procedure), or replace the sphincter muscle altogether (installation of an artificial urinary sphincter) for more severe cases of leakage, the researcher said.

“Using new diagnostic techniques, we are now able to accurately diagnose and streamline treatment recommendations to resolve this bothersome problem for our patients,” Morey mentioned.

For the study, the researchers reviewed the cases of 572 men evaluated for anti-incontinence surgery between 2007 and 2017.

The study calls on men’s general practitioners and urologists to perform a standing cough test, in which a patient coughs while the doctor watches for any accidental urine release, as a routine part of their male patients’ physicals.

“Our goal is to spread the word that effective and safe treatments exist for men with stress urinary incontinence, but also to facilitate an immediate and accurate diagnosis among stress urinary incontinence patients,” said first author Joceline Fuchs from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre.
