The warm weather is wonderful on the one hand, but on the other hand it presents some challenges, especially for those with beards. You can find out what these are and how you and your beard can best withstand them here.

1. A shorter beard makes you sweat less

Hot summer days are sweaty, especially for those with beards. Because sweat runs in streams, especially under thick, full beards, causing facial skin and beard hair to itch. Of course, we wouldn't advise you to get rid of your facial hair straight away. However, it is often a good idea to keep your beard a little shorter in the warmer months. Experts can take care of their beard themselves with a beard trimmer, razor blade or razor and find the right equipment at Mootes. An alternative to this is a visit to your trusted barber.

2. Beat the summer heat with quality beard care products

Beard hair is particularly stressed in summer. Luckily, there are special care products that can help. You should always have these with you not only on vacation, but also on a weekend trip. Beard balm, beard oil and beard shampoo are particularly important here. Because this trio brings your facial hair into shape, makes it shine attractively, smells pleasant and is practically essential for thorough cleaning. It's best to look for products with natural, high-quality ingredients that provide your facial skin and beard with important nutrients and specifically prevent it from drying out in the summer heat. We also recommend a beard brush or comb to remove foreign bodies and dirt from your facial hair. It's best to adjust the distance between the teeth to the density and length of your beard. You can find all this and more in our shop.

3. Be careful when going out into nature

Climbing tours, walks in the forest or simply hiking: When the weather is sunny, it's a real joy to be out in nature alone or - even better - with good friends. However, you can also meet all sorts of creatures here. Fortunately, this is usually more annoying than dangerous. However, some insects prefer to nest in the beard hair. Caution is particularly advised when taking breaks in tall grass. This is where ticks prefer to lie in wait for their victims. The nasty bloodsuckers can nest almost anywhere on the body, with the beard hairs being just a stopover. In contrast to most other troublemakers, ticks pose a real danger. They can transmit the disease Lyme disease. It is therefore advisable to regularly use a beard comb or brush when you are out in nature. This way you can quickly get rid of ticks and other creatures. If a tick has become attached, it should be removed by an expert. The easiest way to do this is to use a special tick card, tweezers or pliers. If removed improperly, there is a risk that the head of the mite will get stuck in the skin. If you have flu-like symptoms after a tick bite, please see a doctor immediately.

4. Bearded people should definitely do this after swimming

On hot summer days, there is hardly anything nicer than diving into the cool waters by the sea or in a swimming pool. Of course, we bearded people also like this form of refreshment. However, we should take care of our facial hair immediately after swimming - regardless of whether we bathed in the pool or in the sea. Because the water contains substances that can damage the beard. While a swim in the ocean primarily leaves salt in the facial hair, beard hair absorbs chlorine and other chemicals in a swimming pool. This can - especially in combination with the hot UV rays of the sun and the wind - lead to the beard hair bleaching and drying out. Luckily, this can be easily prevented. After swimming, simply wash your beard thoroughly with clean, fresh water. This is best done in the shower. You should then pat your facial hair dry. Because water drops can act like burning glasses when exposed to strong sunlight.
