We’re sure you’re desperately looking for that one magic potion that will make your beard grow out faster and overnight. Unfortunate for you and us both, a magic potion like that does not exist. However, the process of growing a beard can be made quicker if you take care of your lifestyle in addition to taking care of your beard. After all, it is what you do that makes you what you are. So, here are 5 basic lifestyle habits that you generally ignore, which you shouldn’t which will help you grow your beard faster.
1. Take Care Of Your Face Underneath
We have one word for you, Exfoliate. Exfoliating your face sparingly can contribute immensely to clearing dead skin cells off your face and facial hair follicles and result in better stimulation of beard growth. When you exfoliate, you unclog all clogged pores (clean the dirt off your face) which clears the way for all hidden hair follicles to grow without hindrance and with the right nutrition. Use a mild exfoliator that can help get all the gunk out but doesn't damage your skin at the same time.
2. Leave Your Beard Be
The oldest tip in the book, and for good reason. It is also one of the easiest to follow. You just require some patience and the capacity to not let itching get the better of you. Just embrace willpower and allow it to happen. Persevere through the itchy phase - there's no avoiding it, we're sorry to say. And in a few months, you'll be too busy admiring the final result that dwelling on any suffering endured getting there will not even occur to you.
3. Follow a Proper Beard Care Regimen
Admittedly, we fail to offer to you a bearded equivalent of magic potion (and advise you to ignore anyone who does), but we can provide for you a complete beard care regimen that’ll ensure your beard is long, thick and strong in no time. We recommend using a Beard Growth Oil that’ll ensure easy growth. You can put it on right after your shower. Let it sit for about 5 minutes and jump onto nourishment of the beard- Beard Oil. Choose a light beard oil that you can leave-in without getting your beard all greasy. Not only will this combination of products keep your facial hair in prime condition, but will also better encourage natural growth faster. To top it all off, you could use a nice Beard Serum to protect your hair from all the daily humdrum and the harmful UV rays.
Pro-tip: Use a Beard Shampoo & Conditioner at least twice every week to keep your beard cleansed, and hair follicles unclogged.
4. Get At Least 8 Hours of Sleep
Alright, let’s start with a bit of science at first, how does sleep help in stimulating growth? Sleep plays an important role in allowing the body to repair and regenerate, and promote hair growth. Your body gets weak without enough sleep and it fails to absorb nutrients to maintain health, resulting in a weakened immune system, loss of hair volume and sheen, diffused facial hair across the face. So, every time you think of staying up for that one last episode on Netflix, think twice. A good, healthy beard is all about willpower and the state of mind, folks.
5. You Are What You Eat
A healthy body inside makes for a healthy beard outside. This is all about hard work and diligence. That's the underlying theme of anyone's bearded success if we put it like that. While we do advise being very, very cautious observing all the “scientific studies” of the Internet, there’s no doubt that a better body on the inside leads to a better body on the outside. For that to happen, you’ll have to fill up regularly on a healthier (probably balanced) serving of protein, which includes, seafood, meat, rice, eggs, etc. The protein-rich diet will enhance testosterone levels to encourage stimulating facial hair.
Pro-tip #2: Don’t forget to drink your 8 litres of water every day that’ll ensure the toxins are out of your body and nutrition in.
While we’ve jot these down for your convenience, we feel there’s a need to understand that there’s no hack for faster growth. It’s a timely, diligent process. And while we understand how living in an age where instant gratification is no longer a rarity might trigger you, some things just take their own good time.
