Happy No Shave November if you're into that sort of thing, which you might have guessed, at least one of us at Honor is! (Just kidding, it's all of us. Anyway..)
November is that very special month where all the bugs freeze and go back to the depths where they belong but it's also that time where the air is robbed of moisture and your skin throws in the towel. An unfortunate side effect is....you guessed it...beardruff (sorry Dan, you gotta share it with the rest of us....badum tss). Beardruff season is in full swing and we want to make sure that you've armed yourself with the necessary tools to keep those face locks luscious.
"Tell us about the tools!" - All of you, probably.
I was getting to it!
Today I want to talk to you about the ways beard butter and beard oil can help fight against beardruff and get you through the harsh Novembeard conditions!
Butter: You know how there's at least a small part of you that wants to fill a bathtub with pudding and lay in it? That's your beard butter. It engulfs your beard and makes it soft and warm and like you definitely want to take a hot shower after a while. Beard butter is great as an overnight treatment to add some moisture to your beard and lock it in place!
Oil: Beard oil is much less like pudding and more like wanting to dump gatorade on yourself after your team gets that big win...minus the sticky and the electrolytes...you get the picture. Beard oil is refreshing! Think of it as the first rain of the season after a dry saharan summer. It fills in the cracks in your skin and helps your beard grow full and healthy.
"BuT wHiCh oNE iS bETteR?"
The millennial in me hates to say it, but in this case, we all CAN be winners. Both beard oil and beard butter work together to hydrate and nourish your skin and beard to make it the best it can be, especially in the dry fall/winter months.
Here at Honor, we pride ourselves not only on WHAT our products can do but also WHY they do what they do. So sit back, relax, and let me introduce you to the stars of this season's show: Tea Tree and Peppermint.
Tea Tree is your hydration station during the dry months. Not only does tea tree fight tooth and nail against dry, flaky dandruff (had to give Dan some of the spotlight, it's only fair), but it also helps to fight bacteria which paves the way for your beard to grow in healthy and strong.
Peppermint isn't just the best holiday scent (cinnamon, we can throw hands), it also has some straight up super powers. Did you know that peppermint actually helps to stimulate blood circulation? Peppermint literally helps the world go round (or at least the people in it). This increase in blood flow helps nutrients travel quickly to the follicle which encourages the hair to grow fuller, healthier and faster!
Sounds pretty great, right? Well, you're in luck. The beard gods spoke, and we listened. Our Defender scent features both tea tree and peppermint. Appropriately named, it defends against the harsh weather conditions AND has some major benefits (as listed right up there ^).
Listen, we're not trying to reinvent the wheel...we just want to make the best ones on the road. Take our Defender products for a spin and tell us what you think!
