Cold weather can often contribute to a dry beard which is all the more reason to stock up on Beard Struggle products in the winter. Same goes for lack of sleep or stress - both things that can also increase in the wintertime. All the more reason to put in extra effort to keep dry beard at bay when the temperatures drop.
