They come with different price tags, but regardless of how much you paid for or how long you have had it, this is one item you cannot afford to miss as a man. Have trouble using it? Here are some tips for using a beard trimmer:
- Dry your beard
Many men who complain that beard trimmers are inefficient either do not dry their beards or that they store the beard trimmer with water in it. If you are to achieve great results with a beard trimmer, then consider combing your entire beard and drying it with a clean towel.
- Set the trimming guide to your desired length
So, what length do you want your beards to be? When it comes to the length of beards, men tastes vary widely. However, it is always recommended to set the guide in a position that allows for longer growth than you would like. A guide set between 12 to 18 millimeters caters for long beards while that between 1.5 and 2 millimeters caters for short beards.
- Ensure that the trimmer’s blade is facing your face
Your trimmer’s blade should always point towards your face side and its flat side should be against the skin. This way, you will be able to make smooth and controlled strokes when trimming your beards. With each stroke, move outwards and make the strokes cross each other just a bit.
- Brush trimmer blades as you shave
During the shaving process, beards will accumulate in the trimmer and this may limit its functionality. To avoid this, regularly clean the trimmer blade as you shave.
Most men who complain that beards trimmers are not efficient do not know how to use these items well. The truth is that beard trimmers are efficient. The above tips will help you use it efficiently for better results.
