THE INCREDIBLE BENEFITS OF BEARD OIL

Beard Facial Hair Sunglasses Man Male BoyNo one can dispute the fact that beards are gaining popularity by the day, not only in the U.S. but across all corners of the world. And this is not by any means a surprising finding seeing that studies show men who feature beards tend to be more confident and successful. Other than that, a beard is a great way to shape a man’s style and to make an exclusive personal statement.

Interestingly, even as beards continue to grow in fame and reputation, very few people understand exactly what it takes to build and nurture a beautiful, thicker beard. Luckily,  the secrets to beard care, to a healthy and neat beard that not only looks great but smells heavenly, are quite easy to understand and follow.

Just like any beard enthusiast would tell you, beard oil is one of these secrets; in fact, beard oil is not an option when it comes to beard care – it’s something you simply cannot afford not to have.

Most people don’t realize this, but one of the most common reasons why men give up on growing beards is the irritation and itchiness that kicks in during the initial stages. According to many men, this itchiness and/irritation is usually so intense that it prompts them to shave off in a bid to return their chins to normalcy.

And this is where beard oil comes in – it moisturizes the hair follicles and soothes the skin beneath thus getting rid of the brittleness and dryness that causes the intense itching and/or irritation in the first place. Other than getting rid of irritation and itchiness, additional benefits of using beard oil include the following:

  • Helps get rid of beardruff
  • Makes the beard smell nice
  • Gives the beard a healthy sheen

Beard balm is also another must-have product in beard care as it helps lock in the moisture left by beard oil. Beard balm is a leave-in conditioner that contains sweet almond oil, shea butter, and a protectant for sealing in the moisture. The main function of beard oil is to moisturize the beard, while a beard balm helps keep the beard looking soft, neat and tidy.

So, what is the right time to apply beard oil and how often should it be applied? Beard oil, just like hair oil, should be applied immediately after showering because it is during this time that the pores of the skin and the hair follicles are open and soft enough to efficiently absorb the nutrients in the oil. As to how often it should be applied, one or twice a day is usually enough.
