It's about to be that time of the year - the time where you trade in your shorts for jeans, flip-flops for boots and tank tops for overcoats. But one thing typically stays the same, and that's your grooming regimen
. That luscious beard you've been growing all year has finally found another purpose other than looking devilishly handsome - keeping your face warm. Now, all you have to do is take care of it.
A vast amount of our organic world revolves around the cycle of seasons. Likewise, how one goes about grooming is also determined by the seasons. In the months of freezing temperatures and biting winds, a gentleman may find that growing a beard proves to be an excellent decision to avoid feeling the blistering whip of winter across his bare face.
I write about wet shaving, beards, mustaches and the gentlemanly arts. I heard you guys like beards, and I figured there a few guys among you who were going to be trying it for the first time, so I wanted to impart a bit of hard-earned wisdom where I could.

Beards can be pretty legendary things; they can simply linger on the intermediate stage of not quite a full on beard, more of a stubbly ambivalent affair, or grow into an accumulation of some magnificent full-on facial beauty. We love them either way; a beard is a beard, all things considered. They can be short, long, frizzy or coiled. Deep burgundy or a profound russet with lingering hints of silver. Each to their own, an individual ‘beard brand’ if you will.
