If you’re sat at home with not much to do, now might be the perfect time to get your grooming routine in order. Maybe, even try out something a little different. For those that aren’t already using beard oil, this should be at the top of your to-do list. A cosmetic oil which has been blended especially for the beard and skin, it mimics the natural oils that your dermis usually produces. From coconut to jojoba there are many blends on the market to help you achieve a healthy and glossy looking beard, that’s sure to garner a compliment or two. If that’s not enough, here are six more reasons why you should be adding it to your routine.
Hello Hydration – Let’s start at the base of the issue. The skin underneath your beard. Oil helps to keep skin moisturized promoting health and shine. This can also prevent knots and tangles from forming for longer beards and can help make them feel silky smooth.
Spot On – There’s nothing worse than being an adult and having acne. Although you might think a beard can help cover it up, a lot of time it traps dirt and grime on the daily causing blocked pores, follicles to become clogged and inflammation. Oil helps to clean and moisturize and no, it doesn’t make oily skin oilier.
Lose the Itch – There’s nothing worse than an itch that won’t go away. Whether it’s caused by new growth, dry skin or trapped dirt and dead skin cells, beard oil can help. Not only nourishing the skin underneath, but it also coats the hair follicles and can support the production of sebum when hair is in its growth stage.
Patch It Up – Beard looking a bit scraggly? Beard oil not only helps to make your beard look fuller, but it does this by helping to promote the overall health of the beard area. Look for a therapeutic blend that focuses on dryness, itch, and dandruff which can help heal hair follicles.
So Stylish – Whether you’re looking to create interesting silhouettes with your beard from the French fork to the handlebar and chin puff (yes these are real) oil can be as effective as a balm in some cases. Unlike other formulas, it also tends to be more of a natural formula meaning you won’t be applying any harmful toxins onto your face.
Feeling Fresh – Not only are you going to look better, but beard oil can help you smell better too. Blended with essential oils you can find every scent from citrusy to woody. Note, this doesn’t mean you can skip out on washing.
