Washing beard wudu


It is obligatory to wash the outer part of a thick beard, within the limits of the face. (hanafi fiqh)
What is the way to wash beard of bottom of chin if you have thick hanging beard and want to fulfil just the obligation because washing whole beard means no issue. If you cross your finger and rub across under chin through your palm while washing the face ,then is it sufficient ? Actually doing this you will wash the area of bottom of chin , the roots of the beard probably as the beard is thick and someway further away from roots of beard but water usually does not reach till the end of hanging beard. So, interior portion of hanging beard will be washed and exterior or in a sense outer portion may remain dry. And the statement above says to wash outer part obligatory. Please clarify.
