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

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.

Men with genetic predisposition to high testosterone levels could be at increased risk of developing blood clots and heart failure, a study has found.
The study, led by City University of New York researchers, aimed to determine whether endogenous testosterone has a causal role in blood clots (thromboembolism), heart failure and heart attack (myocardial infarction).
They found endogenous testosterone was positively associated with thromboembolism, heart failure, and myocardial infarction in men.
The findings, published by The BMJ, can also have implications for men who take testosterone supplements to boost energy levels and sex drive, said Mary Schooling, Professor at the varsity.
Endogenous testosterone can be controlled with existing treatments and could be a modifiable risk factor for thromboembolism and heart failure, she noted.

“We need to be thinking of new directions for reducing heart disease and this is one way of doing it,” Schooling was quoted as saying to The Guardian.
She pointed out that statins, which are used to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, have been found to lower testosterone levels.
“To protect men we should be looking at treatments and lifestyles which are more on the side of keeping testosterone lower rather than higher,” she said.
For the study, researchers included almost four lakh men and women aged 40 to 75 years.
The associations were found less obvious in women. (IANS)
