Facial hair is actually fashionable. The scruffy look can be really sexy, as long as that beard is “tamed and well maintained.” So don’t confuse scruff with a ragged, run-down, un-groomed, un-tidy, mangy mess. After all, just like the hair on your head, there is more that you can do than just chop off, or in this case, shave clean.
Sure, there is a wide assortment of products to put on your hair- gel, moose, spray and what have you. So why should it be any different for the facial kind? Well, in the sense of what to put, it should be. But to actually have something to put, it shouldn’t.
And that is where beard oil comes in.
What Is Beard Oil and What Are It’s Benefits?
Pretty much what it sounds like, beard oil is basically oil for your beard, as well as the skin underneath it- and the good kinds are made with only natural, nontoxic, hypoallergenic ingredients, such as jojoba oil, coconut oil, and argan oil.
And when it comes right down to the benefits, first of all, beard oil moisturizes, again, not only the beard itself but also the skin underneath it. This keeps your facial hair nice and shiny, soft, and flake free (to reiterate, because it also moisturizes the skin underneath.)
Beard oil is also a great styling agent. A few drops can help keep it neat and in place.
Also, beard oil can leave you smelling great.
How To Apply
It really is simple, after you shower or wash your face, simply take a few drops of beard oil on your palms and rub together. A little can go a long way, but just base it on the thickness and length of your beard. Once warm and evenly distributed on your palms, start rubbing it on the skin underneath your beard and make your way from root to tip. Don’t neglect the moustache.
Remember, a real gentleman is well groomed, and even your beard should get some love.
