Life is often a perfect mix of chaos and hustle. Each and everyday can bring a myriad of tasks, errands, and jobs that need to get done before you can rest your weary head. It can be overwhelming at times to even keep up with the running series of things you have to do, causing some to even freeze up and hide under the covers while feigning sickness.
But you are not content to stay on your couch and plow through a gallon of ice cream while binging on Netflix. Even if you were, your beard wouldn’t allow it.
Instead, you let your beard propel you into the challenges of the day, where you tackle the challenges by channeling the strength and overall epic-ness of your facial forest. Everyone, even the nobly bearded brethren, is in need of checklists from time to time as a way of ensuring that everything in need of crushing gets crushed.
Here’s an equally important checklist on maintaining your beard each and every day.

You wouldn’t wear a dirty, wrinkled shirt to work while at the same time proclaiming your goal is to climb to the top of the career ladder, so why would you approach your daily challenges with a messy, unkempt mane?

You will eventually get a feel for how often you need to trim, just make sure that you are mindful of when that time comes.

This is one of the last steps, but it’s also one of the most important. After combing, and potentially trimming, your beard it is essential that you use an oil or balm in your mane.
