Springtime brings us out of our houses and into the sun more often, which is why it’s so important to moisturize every day. Moisturizers can both retain the hydration already contained in your skin and add new moisture to skin possibly lacking from the cold winter months. An important quality to consider in a moisturizer is a sun protectant 🌞 – especially for those rocking a short buzz cut with scalp micropigmentation. When the top of your SMP head is exposed, moisturizers with SPF are so crucial because they shield your skin and scalp from harmful UV rays that put you at risk for skin cancer, meanwhile aiding minor conditions like discoloration and acne. This product is very easy to use; so easy that we often forget to utilize it. But the advantages of moisturizing should not be dismissed.
In any style, length, and texture, beards can be a powerful statement of style. Just as you take care of the hair on your head every day, your beard deserves the same amount of time, effort, and cleanliness. Beard oils have a natural aroma accompanied by styling capabilities that adds to their attraction. Not only that, they add style, shape, and shine to your beard for a sleeker, cleaner look. Beard oils also moisturize the skin beneath your beard which will prevent flaking and itching. With all the benefits this product has to offer, there’s no reason you shouldn’t start your day lathering up your facial hair in beard oil. And if you are sporting a scalp micropigmentation buzz cut with a bearly beard, check out our tips for keeping that beard high and tidy.

If you’re someone who has no choice but to shave their face once a day, your skin is going through a lot of wear and tear. Shaving often causes irritation in the pores of your skin, which leaves them prone to bacteria and infection. In order to keep your pores unclogged and acne from taking over your skin, you should conclude every shave with aftershave. Aftershaves containing alcohol can kill any bacteria lingering from a used razor while soothing and moisturizing the skin. Many are also made to eliminate redness and evens out skin tone. Make sure not to skip this step in the shaving process and you’ll be thankful to see bright and fresh skin.
