Despite beards being so fashionable now, there are still many people who don’t make use of beard oils and may not understand how to use them to best effect when they get some.
That’s why we have decided to focus on the proper use of beard oils for this article, so you know what to do with yours.
Why Should I Use It?
Before we get into the specifics, let’s take a moment to talk about what beard oil actually does for you.
The most obvious reason to use it is that it allows your beard to have a shinier appeal, in the same way that shampoos and conditioners work for hair. However, it also serves a more practical purpose.
Many men with facial hair will talk about how their beards start itching as they grow longer. This is because the skin underneath is not being taken care of and your body is not generating enough natural oils for the hair you are growing. Good beard oils can replenish this oil while also taking care of the skin, getting rid of that itchy feeling in the process.
How Much Should I Use?
The first question many ask is just how much beard oil they need to use. It’s not really an exact science and a bit of trial and error will help you get there, but to start off try using a puddle in your palm about the size of a 10 pence piece. This should do for most average beards, though those with longer beards will need more.
How Should I Apply It?
Now the oil is in your hand you need to know what to do with it. The first step is to rub it into your palms in the same way you would an aftershave or hair gel. This will allow for even distribution of the oil around the beard.
From there, start rubbing it evenly through the beard and into the skin. It is important that you get to the base of the beard with the oil or your skin won’t benefit from it.
Make sure you don’t neglect the moustache area and don’t be afraid to apply a little more oil if you find you are running low.
As for the best time to apply it, ideally, you will use it almost immediately after stepping out of the shower. Damp, warm skin will be more pliable and capable of absorbing the oil.
To finish off, use a beard comb to tidy up the hair that you will have messed up by massaging the oil into it. This is especially important for people who have longer beards.
How Often Should I Use It?
This is really up to you, as again it’s not an exact science. However, it’s probably best to get into a routine of using your oils after each shower so you can replenish your skin and take care of your beard the same way you do the rest of your body.
