6 Tips For Growing Your Best Beard Ever
Beards are all the rage these days, but unlike the trends of yesteryear, you have plenty of tools and tricks to help you grow the healthiest, thickest beard possible.
If you’re just starting out, though, bearding can be tricky. Here are six great tips to help you grow your best beard ever:
1. Leave It Be, At Least In The Beginning
Beard experts recommend you allow your facial hair to grow out, untouched, for at least a full month before you begin to sculpt and style. This may take some getting used to, particularly for the people in your life who get really up close and personal, but for you as well.
2. Know Your Skin Type And How To Care For It
Growing a beard can be a tedious process; more so for some than others. One of the most important aspects of upkeep is the skin underneath it, though. Learn to identify your exact skin type, such as dry or oily. You might also have sensitive or combination skin and this information is needed to determine the best course of action in taking care of your face, beard and all.
3. Moisturize Naturally
As your beard grows out, your skin may start to feel dry and scratchy. This is a good time to begin a moisturizing regimen and it’s most often best to use a natural product. Many over-the-counter items contain many harsh, even toxic ingredients you’ll want to avoid. You can even try something out of your kitchen, such as olive or coconut oil. Make sure the product you use is absorbed thoroughly, as that’s the only way to truly moisturize and nourish skin.
4. Decide On The Style And Shape Of Your Beard
If you’re looking for a complicated beard, seek instruction from a pro, first. Visit a local barber and ask them to demonstrate the proper technique, step by step. It may cost you extra, but it’s worth it to know how to create just the look you want.
If you’re opting for a simple style or pattern, borrow a friends eyeliner and trace the beard you ultimately want to have right over the shaggy beginners beard you should have. Stand straight in the mirror, so you can avoid unevenness in your trim and keep a steady hand while you work.
5. Beware Of New Beard Itch
Something that could easily discourage even the toughest guy to give up on growing a beard is that awful itch that can set in, but there are ways to get through it. Primarily, you want to keep the face and hair squeaky-clean, followed by an effective, but natural moisturizer.
6. Wash, Rinse, Trim And Repeat
Prepare to add a few extra minutes to your getting ready time in the morning, as your new beard will need it for the upkeep. The need for trimming will be self-evident and once you learn how often you’ll need to do it, start doing it right before it becomes overgrown; this will keep you looking sharp at all times.
Growing a full, healthy beard is the right of every man and should be tried at least once in life. Those who like the look learn to sculpt and nurture their beards with style and finesse. As you pass the beard-growing learning curve, you’ll be able to do more things with your fashionable facial hair, giving you all the more reasons to love your beard and the process of growing it.
