With facial hair comes a little extra upkeep. You have to exfoliate, trim, and moisturize. If you’re not sure where to start, a good product to start with is beard oil. What does beard oil do, you ask? Keep reading to learn what it does and why you should be using it.
What is beard oil?
Beard oil is a formula that usually consists of a blend of a bunch of different oils. Argan oil, hempseed oil, grape seed oil, and coconut oil are comment ingredients. The best beard oils are all natural, so you won’t feel weird about putting it on your face.
What does beard oil do?
Beard oil is designed to hydrate your face and soften your hair follicles so that you have a nice, tame beard. Growing out a beard can cause flakiness and itchiness, and a good beard oil will combat that. Beard oil can also double as a styling product, so it is amazing for longer beards, as well.
How do you use beard oil?
The ideal time to use beard oil is directly after you wash your face. So, if you have just gotten out of the shower or washed your face, apply a beard oil right away. Squeeze just a few drops onto your hands and massage the oil into your beard and skin. Your pores and hair follicles will be open and ready to accept the moisture right after washing, so it is the best time to apply.
Where can I get beard oil?
Beard oil is available at plenty of places, but try to find one that is all natural and a scent that you won’t mind having on your face all day.
This beard oil by Leven Rose is completely organic, and only contains two ingredients: jojoba oil and Moroccan argain oil. It is also fragrance free.
This beard oil by St. Pierre’s has an oakmoss sandalwood scent, which is said to “drive women wild.” It also sinks into your skin quickly, so you won’t feel oily all day long.
