The frequency of washing your beard depends on your preference and lifestyle. However, as a general rule, cleaning your beard every two to three days is recommended.
Washing your beard frequently can strip the natural oils from your skin and hair, leading to dryness, irritation, and even breakouts. On the other hand, washing your beard too infrequently can lead to a buildup of dirt, oil, and other impurities, which can cause itching, flaking, and odor.
It may be necessary to wash your beard more frequently if you have a particularly oily or dirty job, sweat a lot, or live in a humid or polluted environment so as to remove impurities. Although I primarily work from home I work out on average 4 - 5 days a week so find myself washing my beard at least twice a week.
When washing your beard, it's essential to use a gentle, sulfate-free beard shampoo or wash that won't strip the natural oils from your skin and hair. After washing, applying a beard conditioner or beard oil is an excellent idea to help keep your beard soft, hydrated, and well-groomed.
