Average Joe | Marius du Randt

Average Joe

Welcome to our new monthly feature, Average Joe.

In this section our aim is to interview normal guys like you and me. We find out more about them – what they do for a living, their passions and interests and off course what got them into growing beards in the first place.

This month we feature Marius du Randt. Most guys would envy his job. He works for one of our favourite craft beer companies, but he is also a very nice guy!

I am currently the Logistics Manager for a craft brewery in Paarl. I compile most orders here in the Western Cape and dispatch them to customers. I also manage the national distribution so that our fresh beers can be delivered to happy customers!

The time to grow a beard is now!

So you have been toying with the idea of possibly, maybe, perhaps growing a beard, but it is never the right time.

Well, I am here to tell you that the time is now!

Winter is over and along with it the harsh effects as well. Your skin dries out a lot more in winter due to the cold air, extra hot showers stealing valuable skin oils and other things like diet and exercise.
Now that spring is here and your skin is returning to normal levels, why not put down your razor?

Start exercising, taking supplements and nourishing your skin to reclaim that damage caused by the chilly winds.

If you need some tips or are not sure where to start, read our handy tips section.

How to deal with beard dandruff

Beard dandruff

You thought normal dandruff is embarrassing ? Try beard dandruff!

And the problem is actually more common than you might think. Last week I got an email from one of our product users asking how to deal with it.
I will share how I dealt with mine (yes, it happens to the best of us!).

First we have to understand what happens:

Skin under the beard usually gets dry when natural oil of skin dries out, causing flaking. Dryness is responsible for itching and irritation to skin under beard. Cold and dry weather can also be causes of dry and flaky skin.

The other cause is normally the result of moisture build-up close to skin, causing a fungal type growth or reaction to occur. (My beard normally goes through this phase at the start and end of winter during the change of seasons).
