Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


p>I don't have a beard or mustache, but when I maintain a jawline beard shape, do I need to use a trimmer daily, and will this make my skin rough? Is it possible that this might make me appear older?

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Maintaining a well-groomed beard or facial hair can indeed require daily or regular upkeep, depending on your personal hair growth rate and desired look. Using a trimmer can be helpful in maintaining the shape and length of your beard.


When using a trimmer, it's crucial to do so correctly to avoid skin irritation. Here are some tips to keep in mind:


Preparation: Begin with clean, dry facial hair. This ensures that the trimmer works effectively and reduces the risk of skin irritation.


Gentle Trimming: Avoid pressing the trimmer too hard against your skin. Let it glide lightly over your skin to prevent roughness or irritation.


Moisturize: Trimming can sometimes dry out your skin. It's important to use a moisturizer after trimming to keep your skin hydrated and healthy.


Clean Your Trimmer: Regularly cleaning your trimmer can help prevent bacterial buildup, which could lead to skin issues.


Regarding whether maintaining a jawline beard shape might make you appear older, this can vary depending on personal perception. Some people find that facial hair gives them a more mature look, while others may not notice a significant difference. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and confident with your appearance.
