So you’re thinking about growing out your beard, eh? That’s great news because beards are awesome! However, if you’re not careful with your facial hair, it can quickly go from awesome to that thing on your face you keep forgetting to shave in no time flat. This article is designed to show you how to trim your beard and trim it properly to make sure it looks great. The first step is knowing how to trim all the parts of your beard correctly!

1) It’s better for your skin

Your beard can hold onto all sorts of bacteria, which can in turn lead to a slew of skin problems like acne, eczema, and more. If you want your face to look healthier and feel better, it’s time to trim that beard!

2) You’re saving time

Every second counts in the hectic lives we lead, so every minute you spend trimming your beard is a minute you could be spending on something more important. Think about how many minutes you spend trimming your beard over the course of a year, then think about what else could be done with those minutes. You might not realize it, but by neglecting your beard grooming, you’re wasting time that could be spent on any number of productive activities.

3) It looks better on you

The first reason why you should trim your beard is that it will make you look more attractive. It makes sense; everyone wants to be attractive. If you have a beard, it might come across as messy and unprofessional if it is not trimmed. The second reason is that it will make you feel more comfortable in the summer when the heat starts coming out. Believe me, it’s unpleasant when sweat mixes with your unsightly facial hair.

4) If you do it once, you won’t have to do it again

  • You won’t have to shave as often.
  • It’ll take less time in the morning and save you time throughout the day.
  • The less you shave, the thicker your beard will become (unless you’re trying to grow it out).
  • It’s healthier for your skin and will make it easier on your face (you can avoid acne breakouts).

5) If you don’t, people will comment on your grower (like ours did)

  • It will make you feel cleaner.
  • It will make your skin feel better.
  • It will reduce your chance of getting razor bumps or ingrown hairs by keeping the hair trimmed on your neckline and cheek area.
  • You’ll look better in pictures, with less shaggy hair obscuring your face and features (plus, it’s a good way to see how the beard actually looks).

6) It’ll look tidier if you keep it neatly trimmed

Your beard is one of the most defining features of your face, and it’s up to you whether or not you want it. But if you do, then make sure that it’s trimmed and maintained well so it looks neat and tidy. It’ll also help keep your skin healthy too.

7) After a while, it gets super hard to shave with certain tools like straight razors and electric shavers; so trimming might be the easiest way to go about it.

One of the most common reasons people stop shaving is because it can be so hard. You’re constantly fighting with razors that are dull, electric shavers that don’t work, or just not being able to find the right tool for the job. When you trim your beard, all you need is a pair of scissors and a comb.

8) Save Money! Get yourself a trimmer.

With beard trimmers, you can trim your beard down to the length of your choice. Shaving cream and soap are not needed as well because the trimmer does it for you. The trimmer also eliminates the risk of razor burns and cuts on your face as well as saves a lot of time.

9) Having an impressive beard isn’t about how long it is but how good it looks

Having an impressive beard isn’t about how long it is but how good it looks. You don’t want your beard to become scraggly and unkempt. If you have a long beard, make sure you trim the neckline and cheek line so that they are neat and tidy. Use a comb or brush to ensure that there are no knots or bumps in your beard. Beards should be maintained like any other type of hair on your body.

10) Attention from women when they see it 😀

To be honest, I’m not sure what I would do if my wife didn’t like it. But she does! Whenever we’re out in public together, she always gets compliments about how nice and full my beard is. It’s really great for a man’s ego when the woman he loves enjoys his beard as much as he does.
