Growing a full healthy beard to be envied can prove to be challenging for some men. Often we put up with thinning and patchiness that requires regular trimming and too much time wasting maintenance. Improper skincare routines, unhealthy diets and harsh environmental factors can lead to lacklustre thinning and weak facial hair. We’ve come up with a few simple, fuss-free and achievable ways to boost our skincare routine and promote a full, nourished and healthy looking beard in a matter of months.
Adding in healthy fats both inside and out is incredibly important here. Avocado, nuts, seeds, berries and proteins are all loaded with beneficial vitamins that help to promote hair growth. Your hair is a protein, so the more protein-rich foods you’re consuming the healthier your beard will look. Drinking enough water daily is also important to help flush out toxins from your body. This in turn will hydrate your skin, with healthier skin meaning a healthier and thicker beard.
It’s been said that high-intensity exercise such as cardio workouts, brisk walking, running and cycling help hair growth. Movement increases testosterone, which in turn promotes healthy follicles and therefore encourages a full thick beard. The exercise also increases blood circulation which provides all the nutrients the hair needs to grow thicker and stronger. So with that said, dust off your running shoes and get moving!
A regular skincare plan is key if we want a full and even beard. Often the skin beneath gets abandoned and therefore lacks important nourishment and hydration. Cleaning and washing your face regularly will encourage circulation, exfoliate the skin, remove dead skin cells that are causing ingrown hairs, and open up your pores. A proper deep cleanse primes the skin, creating the perfect foundation for either one of our beard oil remedies. Our Hourglass Timer can be used to make sure we’re giving ourselves the time we need to properly massage the oils into our skin, for maximum absorption. Our 100% natural, cold-pressed and vegan Peppermint Beard Remedy is the perfect balance of stimulating plant oils. A unique blend of invigorating and strengthening oils work in synergy to stimulate speedy growth and help tackle your everyday beard frustrations. Moisturising avocado, strengthening coconut, softening argan and smoothing rosehip have been topped off with a splash of Peppermint Oil to stimulate the hair follicles to work a little harder. With a natural, minty scent that will keep you smelling fresh from dusk till dawn.
It’s safe to say stress is a killer! It’s been proven that stress increases the cortisol levels in your body. This in turn has a negative impact on testosterone development. Most of us suffer from stress in one way or another and this can also disrupt our sleep pattern and quality. Not getting enough shut eye directly affects hair growth, making it more challenging to grow the beard of your dreams!
