Everyone's skin is different. For black people, this is an understatement. Living in a Eurocentric society has left us mistreating our bodies by applying harsh chemicals to our skin and hair. For most, going natural is a political statement by itself. Maintaining that naturalness though - takes time and patience. One question often get is how to eliminate those painful ingrown hairs and razor bumps. The proper shedding of skin cells is key to preventing and decreasing both. You should exfoliate regularly (every few days, depending on your skin type). We recommend using B.A.B.E. of Brooklyn's Beard Bar, made with natural ingredients that soothe and repair your beard with a special formulated activated-charcoal blend; crafted to moisturize and condition the beard versus stripping away the oils on the skin like most shampoos do. Not only does this stuff smell good, but it also works with all hair and skin types - and ladies, you can use it to! 😉
Let us know in the comments what you do to maintain your beard.
