No moisture left during wudhu

I was reading these rulings of Sayyid al-Sistani:

Ruling 256. If for the purposes of wiping no moisture is left on the hand, one cannot wet his hands with additional water; rather, one must take moisture from his beard and perform the wiping with that. Taking moisture from anything other than one’s beard and wiping with it is problematic [i.e. based on obligatory precaution, such a wiping does not suffice].

Ruling 257. If the moisture on one’s hand is only sufficient for wiping his head, the obligatory precaution is that he must wipe his head with that moisture, and for the wiping of his feet he must take moisture from his beard.

So what he's saying is basically that if your hand becomes dry after wiping the head and your hand has no moisture left in order for you to wipe your feet, then you can take some moisture from your beard. And only from your beard, meaning that you can't wet your hand with anything else.

The question arises: what if I don't have a beard ? What am I supposed to do ? Imagine if I wiped my head but then my hand becomes dry/doesn't have enough moisture. How am I suppposed to wipe my feet ?

The principle in wiping the feet for ablution is to do it with the remaining moisture in the palm of the hand, whether with the fingers or with the palm of the hand.
In any case, the great authorities of Taqlid say in this regard:
If the moisture of the palm is only enough to wipe the head, he can [1] wipe the head with the same moisture and take ablution moisture from other limbs to wipe the feet. [2]

[2]. Ayatollah Behjat: (And according to the obligatory precaution, he should first get help from the hair of beard and eyebrows and if there is no water in them, he should get moisture from his hands); great Marjas Khoei, Tabrizi, Shubiri Zanjani, Sistani, Khamenei: (To wipe the feet, he takes moisture from beard)
