Beard oil isn’t just a hair product–it also works to condition and soften the skin under your beard, making it look and feel healthier. It can also control itchiness, ingrown hairs and acne and other blemishes, preventing them from getting worse.
The best beard oils are made from high-quality, natural ingredients that will nourish the skin beneath your beard and help it stay hydrated and healthy. They can contain essential oils, like eucalyptus or lavender oil, that have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. They can also be formulated to suit your specific skin type and beard length.
Some oils for the beard are more effective than others at nourishing your skin and beard, so be sure to check out each one carefully to find a combination that works well for you. You’ll also want to make sure you choose a non-comedogenic beard oil that won’t clog your pores and cause a buildup of bacteria or other problems.
We recommend a mixture of argan, jojoba and grapeseed oil for the beard to keep your beard conditioned and healthy. All of these oils have fatty acids that penetrate your beard’s hairs and leave them softer, thicker and less likely to dry out.
If you live in an area that’s very dry, apply a bit more than usual–but don’t go overboard!
Use a beard comb to evenly distribute the oil throughout your beard, making sure that it’s applied over each and every hair. This is important to help your beard look as good as possible and prevent a lot of flaking.
It’s a good idea to use beard oil twice a day–morning and evening. That’s because your beard tends to grow slower at night, which is when it can be most susceptible to drying out.
Before you begin applying beard oil, take a shower or bath to thoroughly clean your face and remove any debris. This will open your pores, which will help the oil to absorb better into your skin and be distributed more evenly.
Massage a few drops of beard oil into the palms of your hands (reference image below for how much you need). Rub the mixture into your beard and skin in an upward motion. Start with the cheeks and work your way down to your jawline.
Repeat this process until you have completely covered your beard and skin. Next, rub the oil between your palms and fingertips to help it spread more evenly.
For best results, don’t forget to rinse off the beard oil with water after you are done. If you aren’t sure how much you need, start with a small amount and work up to the recommended dosage.
You can also mix a little of the oil with your beard wash or conditioner. This will help seal in the moisture and lock in the product to allow it to get to work.
Then, comb through your beard and moustache with a good quality beard comb to ensure that each and every hair is evenly coated.
