Vacation Beard: A Quick Guide to Off-Duty Grooming

'Off the clock' doesn't mean you're exempt from some level of grooming.

Maintaining a low-maintenance beard while on vacation plays a key role in achieving optimal levels of relaxation. Who wants to spend an hour in front of the bathroom mirror morning every day when the beach is waiting? Embrace that vacation scruff and maintain a relatively easy level of beard upkeep with these three simple rules.

Beard upkeep is an essential part of any vacation style.

1. Wash your beard daily.

Keep your beard clean and fresh by washing it daily while on vacation. Suave Men Alpine Fresh 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner is a multipurpose product that will take care of both your hair and your beard at the same time. Pack this 2-in-1 product for a guaranteed fresh feeling post-shower.

2. Maintain clean edges with a razor.

While making time for a full shave is less than ideal, you will want to make sure to clean up the hair on your neck for a relatively neat look. Chances are that you started your vacation with a completely clean-shaven look and by day two or three, your neck is likely in need of a bit of a clean-up. Let the stubble grow freely but give your neck a quick buzz with your razor to keep the edges nice and neat.

3. Pack the right product.

When your scruff starts to get stubbly and rough, this styling cream will soften the edges for a laidback vacation vibe. What more could you want from your vacation beard?

There you go guys, no more excuses for not looking great on your vacation – even if you do want to be a beach bum!
