We've had a lot of guys asking when is the best time to apply beard products to their man mains, so we figured we would weigh in. Morning? Afternoon? Before bed?

Personally, I always apply beard oil and beard balm after showering or after washing my face. I find that the product absorbs into the beard better if it is a little damp and obviously I like to start with a clean beard. I always start the day applying beard products and will sometimes reapply as needed throughout the day. 

Most importantly, make sure you are getting IN the beard, not just touching the surface. A lot of guys just rub beard oil on the surface and don't actually get down to the skin, which is the most important part. Your skin is most likely dry and needing the nourishment from the carrier oils in the beard products, like jojoba oil and argan oil. Starting at the skin and then combing the product through the beard yields best results. 

I've seen a lot of guys apply beard oil before going to bed, but have found that it just gets on the pillow case. I personally apply in the morning, and maybe refresh with some balm in the afternoon or evening if I'm headed out for the night. 

Let us know what works best for you guys!
