Though I don’t drink coffee I do love the aroma of fresh ground coffee powder. Btw my hubby starts his day with a strong cup of coffee ☕️ <though he drinks only 1 cup a day, he likes it real strong>. All these days I was using the instant coffee powder. But when ever I crossed the – coffee day’s fresh & ground store, I was very much temped to buy it and moreover fresh ground coffee powder can be bought unpacked, for those who aren’t aware of, I am very much inspired by Bea Johnson the pioneer of zerowaste movement, author & founder of zerowastehome,..<Btw even while buying instant coffee powder I always used to opt for the ones packed in glass jars and reuse them later as spice jars and now I don’t need more as my spice rack is full.>

For some men, growing a beard is not easy and for others, it comes so fast that it is a challenge to keep up with it. But for those that sport the beard, taking good care of it is important; in fact, most beards need daily care or they go from a sexy look to a scruffy and unkempt look. You need to wash, trim and condition it to help keep it well-groomed. So, yes, beard maintenance is crucial if you plan to wear one.
I’ve done this specially for my beardy cousins (they grow it for style) & my hubby (being very occupied with his r&d shaves weekly once n so has a little beard on weekdays 😉)! I’ve come to know through them that there are few problems they face with the beard –
- Since beard hair is typically quite coarse, men often experience itchiness and even in-grown hairs on the delicate facial skin underneath.
- A full beard also makes it difficult to access the skin so common skin problems like dryness, acne or inflammation can be compounded.
