Three Tips for Low Maintenance Beard Care

—Urban Beardsman

It’s easy to go overboard. You head to the store to pick up one awesome new shirt, and next thing you know you’re hit with a shopper’s high and you drop $400 on button-ups and something called “coated denim.”

Stop going overboard.

From style to grooming, sometimes simpler is better. And today we’re talking about simple, low maintenance beard care for the urban beardsman.

Short and sweet

If you’re going for the yeard, we salute you. But if you want to streamline your beard journey and make things a bit easier on yourself, the simplest way to do it is to give that man mane a good trim and shape-up, and take out the bulk. A shorter beard is an easier beard, and it requires less hassle and upkeep to look awesome.

It’s the balm

There are a lot of products out there that are designed to keep your beard looking healthy, shiny, and soft. But maybe you want to go the route of the minimalist and avoid having to use a slew of products to get your desired result.

With Beardbrand’s recently released Utility Balm, you can take care of your beard – as well as your hair, skin, and even tattoos – all in one jar.

The balm is a smooth, soothing, no-hold deep conditioner, and is perfect for keeping your hair and beard velvety soft and hydrated. But the real beauty of this product is that it goes beyond just the beard. Once you’re done taking care of your face sweater, take another scoop to keep your skin moisturized and healthy, and even keep your tattoos vibrant. Including Beardbrand’s signature scent blends the new balm features ingredients like mango butter, lanolin, and jojoba oil, as well as shea butter, which is rich in vitamins and renowned for its anti-aging properties, and cocoa butter which contains a number of anti-oxidants and is known to improve skin health and elasticity.

Simple ‘stache

Any beardsman worth his salt will tell you that one of the most challenging and time consuming parts of growing an epic beard is styling and caring for the mustache.

A bushy mustache means extra time spent on styling, shaping, and getting it to stay in place. The simple solution? Skip it.

Instead of going for a handlebar style that takes a fair amount of work to achieve, stick with a more natural style that requires less work. A simple trim following the overall contour of your lip-line ensures that you can keep the length and bulk, make it look neat and tidy, but bypass the hassle of breaking out waxes, blow dryers, and combs just to get your mustache in place.

With these three easy tips, you can be on your way to a low maintenance beard in no time. So pick up your bare essentials at and keep it simple!
