Ans: Assalamu Alaikum.

Take new water and make Takhlil of the beard.

In Sunan-Abu-Dawud:

عن أنس يعنى ابن مالك أن رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- كان إذا توضأ أخذ كفا من ماء فأدخله تحت حنكه فخلل به لحيته وقال: هكذا أمرنى ربى عز وجل

Anas ibn Malik narrates: “Whenever the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) performed ablution, he took a handful of water, and, putting it under his chin, made it go through his beard, saying: Thus did my Lord command me.”

And Allah knows best.
