Regrettably, the spring and summer months are often regarded as the quieter period for men's grooming businesses. This phenomenon is based on the understanding that sporting a beard can offer slight insulation against the weather by keeping the underlying skin warmer. Although a beard does elevate the temperature of the facial skin, there's no necessity to completely part with it in search of some relief.

Just to clarify, if you prefer shaving in the warmer months due to your personal experiences or preferences, that's perfectly acceptable! Our intention is simply to offer new insights to those who perceive facial hair as suitable only for certain seasons, instead of considering it as an option during warmer months.

Throughout the year, beards provide continuous protection for your skin against various elements. Indeed, facial and body hair have evolved as natural safeguards. In the cold, dry winter, beards play a role in shielding your skin from chapping caused by brisk winds and snow exposure. In sunnier seasons, your beard serves as a defence, safeguarding your skin from the harmful UV rays emitted by the sun.

Certain experienced individuals with beards also contend that facial hair contributes to keeping them comfortable in hot weather. To elucidate this concept, let's delve into sweat: Sweat's purpose is to trap a portion of your body's heat, subsequently cooling it as it transforms into vapour in the atmosphere. Depending on your individual physiology, an increased amount of surplus sweat might gather in your beard, aiding in the dispersion of additional body heat compared to a clean-shaven face. Consequently, this phenomenon can lead to the mentioned cooling effect on the facial region.

Change in season equals to changing your grooming routine

Having noted that, grooming practices often shift with the fluctuating temperatures across the seasons. Interestingly, if your intention is to maintain your impressive growth during the impending warmer months, all that's required is a slight adjustment to your grooming regimen.

Why, you ask? You might wonder. As the snow gradually vanishes and the weather becomes more agreeable, the urge to step outdoors intensifies. Although this prospect is fantastic, the increased outdoor exposure corresponds to a heightened accumulation of grime in your beard. This effect is particularly pronounced during spring, as the revitalizing spring breeze often carries airborne dirt and pollen, depositing them directly onto your facial hair.

 If you enjoy engaging in outdoor pursuits such as hiking, biking, kayaking, hunting, fishing, and the like, it's likely that your perspiration will be more pronounced. Although sweat effectively prevents your body from overheating, it equally serves as a magnet for collecting environmental particles like dirt, pollen, and dust. Without enhancing your grooming regimen, these sweaty activities can quickly result in a beard that's considerably dirtier.

In conclusion, you can relish everything that the warmer months have to offer while simultaneously maintaining the silkiness, softness, and lusciousness of your beard.


Above all else, ensure you have an ample supply of beard wash and conditioner. This step is crucial and often overlooked by many beard enthusiasts. Remember, less is often better when it comes to washing your beard. However, you might consider adjusting your washing frequency from 2 or 3 times a week to 3 or 4 times a week (or potentially more, depending on your beard's needs).

Insufficient washing can lead to the accumulation of residues in your beard, resulting in a sensation of heaviness and greasiness. This, in turn, amplifies the modest level of insulated body heat within and around your beard. The presence of dirt in an unwashed beard hinders your body's efficient heat dissipation, potentially causing skin inflammation. Consequently, this discomfort is further heightened during the spring and summer seasons.

For those who lead an especially active lifestyle and find it necessary to cleanse their beard daily during the spring and summer, consider employing the "co-wash" technique by substituting Beard Conditioner for regular washing. While not as potent as a daily wash, our Conditioner contains the appropriate elements to minimize beard dirt without causing excessive dryness. For optimal results, combining this approach with periodic washing a few times a week is recommended.

Following that, consider changing your beard oil to a lighter, warm-weather scent. While this adjustment isn't strictly a grooming routine, it does signify a shift in the season and can significantly impact how you're perceived by colleagues, friends, and loved ones. Scents tend to leave an impression, and aligning a fresh fragrance with the changing season can undoubtedly yield positive results. 

 If you're seeking a starting point, we suggest exploring Original Beard Oil or Artisan Beard Oil

Here's another valuable tip: maintain your beard's grooming. Ensuring that the facial hairs are kept untangled and well-arranged encourages better airflow when the weather gets warmer. Additionally, this practice enhances manageability and contributes to an overall improved appearance. If you haven't already, consider our Beard Comb or Beard Brush, designed to effortlessly glide through even the most robust of beards.

 If you incorporate all of these suggestions and continue to experience discomfort from your beard during the warmer months, it might be worth considering a slightly shorter beard. This doesn't entail hastily reaching for a razor; instead, take some time to explore shorter beard styles that pique your curiosity. Once you've done your research, you can consult a reliable barber who can expertly trim and shape your beard into the ideal style for spring and summer.

As the urge to shave creeps in, reflect on the awkward stages you persevered through to reach your current beard status. Let's collectively put our razors aside, welcome the approaching warmer season, and above all, continue nurturing that growth.
