Beard Care Hygiene

As coronavirus "COVID-19" scales across our country, personal hygiene is our upmost #1 line of defence. Day in, Day out we use our hands to perform 100's of 1000's of task's and during these task's we always feel the need to stroke our beard (habit), and never think about what we just touched moments before.

We have had many customers asking us questions after questions. What should i use to wash my beard? What is the best way to apply beard oil or beard balm? As anxiety heightens that third person in your head might be hinting you to shave your beard.

STOP! You don't need to shave your beard off just for COVID-19. There is many ways we can manage our beards, practising good personal hygiene to reduce the risks.

Its simple - Don't touch anything, don't go any where and just hide in your mancave until its all gone away. Just Kidding.


Gunners Blend has put some handy tips together that we practise each day that just might come in handy for you, if you're not already doing it.

TIP #1

Reducing your need to touch your beard during the day can be a challenge. We do it out of habit and like most habits its hard to stop. You can start with keeping your beard tidy and trimmed where those nasty stragglers tickle your nose or neck or use Gunners Blend beard balm that provides hold and keeps your beard in shape.

TIP #2

To wash your beard we recommend just using soap and not sanitiser's that are petroleum or alcohol based chemicals that can damage your skin under your beard. As most soaps or washes still dry your skin and hair out, you should immediately apply a beard oil or beard balm to prevent your skin from going dry and flaky and you hair from drying out and becoming brittle.

TIP #3

Use a beard comb to evenly spread your beard balm or beard oil. This will also reduce the risk of transmission when your hands are further away from your mouth.

TIP #4

To reduce the risk's when applying your beard balm or beard oil you must first wash your hands thoroughly. Following the WHO recommendations, wash your hands with soap and water and dry them thoroughly or use alcohol-based hand rub if you don’t have immediate access to soap and water. Remembering this should be for a minimum of 20 seconds or sing "happy birthday" twice. instructional image below.
