You Don't Choose a Beard, a Beard Chooses You — Author Unknown

I don’t usually do this – write about masculine grooming – but I’ve seen too many horror stories of men trying to grow beards not to write about the topic. From applying methylated spirit to braiding barely visible tufts of hair, men have gone to extreme lengths to become a member of the #BeardGang.

Today, beards are a big deal for nearly every man. Even some women would do anything to see thick, full beards on their partners. On the flip side, growing beards might not come easily for some men as it would for others. If you fall into this category, then this piece is for you. Learn, and get to work!

1. Commit to a Routine

Men have a tendency to give up growing a beard just before they get to the ‘fun' phase. When you’re growing your beard, there will come a time when your beard begins to itch and becomes troublesome. This is when the pessimist in most men simply shaves his scruff off. To get the beard of your dreams, you will need to commit to letting it grow for a minimum of 4-6 weeks before you let allow any trimmer near it.

2. Exfoliate Regularly

You should start taking care of your face if you want to grow a beard quickly. Begin by thoroughly cleansing, hydrating, and exfoliating your skin. Once a week, use a scrub or an exfoliant to exfoliate your skin. This will assist in the removal of all dead skin cells as well as the stimulation of new hair growth.

3. Keep Facial Skin Clean

You should wash your face with warm water and a light cleanser to maintain it clean. Warm water will open your pores, and the cleanser will remove all of the oil and grime that has gathered on your skin, leaving it spotless. Hair grows faster on clean skin. Make sure you don't wash your face with harsh soaps.

4. Moisturize Your Skin

After cleaning your skin, use a moisturizing lotion to keep it from feeling dry and to improve the look of your skin by eliminating dry and flaky skin. Because eucalyptus increases facial hair development, using a moisturizer containing eucalyptus can be beneficial.

Eucalyptus can be utilized to aid the growth of facial hair, according to studies. Either olive oil or sesame oil can be used with eucalyptus oil. Mix well and massage into the skin of the face. Before washing with cold water, let it on for at least 20 minutes.

5. Rest Properly

In order for your injured skin cells to heal, you must keep stress and sleep under control. Your beards will also grow faster as a result of this. When you're calm, your beard will grow more swiftly. Exercising can help you manage stress and encourage hair development at the same time.

6. Consume Protein and Saturated Fat

Fast, healthy hair growth may be achieved by consuming adequate amounts of protein and saturated fat. A good supply of protein may be found in fish and beans. Animal fats and eggs are also included in these sources of nutrition. As a result, eating more of these nutritious foods can speed up the process of hair regrowth. Because these fats might create circulation difficulties if eaten in excess, you should consume them minimally.

7. Balance Your Vitamins and Minerals

Hair development may be slowed due to a mineral deficit. To boost facial hair development to some extent, you'll need a balance of vitamins A, C, and E. These vitamins aid in the maintenance of your follicles and sebum, as well as the improvement of circulation, resulting in a healthier environment for your beard to develop in. Citrus fruits, tomatoes, potatoes, green peppers, and other dark leafy green vegetables contain them.

Another nutritional vitamin that supports skin, hair, and nails is biotin. You might also take a 2.5 mg biotin vitamin every day for a while to speed up the growth of your beard.

8. Apply Castor Oil

Castor oil is one of the most effective natural treatments for promoting beard growth. It can also help to prevent additional damage to the skin and hair. From the root, castor oil moisturizes and nourishes the hair. It also makes the hair strands thicker. Rub a few drops of Castor oil into your beard evenly. If you use some old pillowcases, you may leave them on all night. The oil has the potential to stain though!

9. Aloe Vera Works Wonders!

Aloe Vera is the last item on our list. It's a fantastic herb for speeding up the growth of your beard. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties, and it stimulates the development of facial hair, giving you thick and lengthy beards. To use Aloe Vera, apply the gel directly to the area around your face and neck. Leave the gel on for twenty minutes before washing off with lukewarm water. Repeat this routine on a regular basis to grow facial hair faster.
