Out of sight does not have to mean out of mind. The secret to a magnificent beard is a solid foundation. Your facial hair draws moisture from your skin, which can leave your skin dry leading to dandruff in your beard. It’s important that you have a daily skin care routine when you have a beard to make sure your skin remains moisturised. To keep your skin healthy, be sure to:
Apply beard serum/oil daily - This goes without saying. Check out our Moisturising Serum here.
Keep your skin moisturised - Get down into your pores to make sure your serum absorbs into your skin properly. It gives your hair the fuel it needs to grow healthy and fast.
The ingredients in the products you use on your face matter. If you’ve been just stealing your girlfriend’s or wife’s shampoo and conditioner, or using the first product you find in the store, you need to stop!
It is important you do your due diligence when researching the best products for you and the ingredients they contain.3: Your diet matters.
I am sure you have heard this before, “you are what you eat.”, and it is true. A poor diet can leave your beard dry, brittle, and patchy. This means if you are not eating foods that enable you get your daily dose of vitamins and nutrients, then don’t expect any miracles in the beard department.4: Exercise.
When’s the last time you hit the gym? It is scientifically proven that exercise improves the overall health of your skin and hair. Some benefits of exercise are:
Increases testosterone levels - Which boosts beard growth
Reduces stress - Too much stress lowers testosterone
Boosts metabolism - Which triggers hair growth
Bonus tip, be patient! It takes time for your beard to grow in so go easy on yourself.
