If you have one of those scruffy beards, you may be feeling a little self-conscious. You may be even wondering how all these Instagrammers get their beards to look so perfect in that 1:1 ratio. You can grow the beard, but now you have to do the upkeep.
Too hard? Nah.
First things first, exercise is key.
The reason working out can be so beneficial to growing your dream beard is because it helps build testosterone - a hormone known to help promote healthy hair growth. Makes sense, right?
Eating healthy is not only good for your body, it's good for the longevity of your beard. Chow down on avocado, broccoli and and almonds for a boost of vitamin E - which helps reduce inflammation and repairs damaged hair follicles.
Pass on the Stress...
Stress is known to kill beards. If you're overwhelmed, you may start to notice your beard thinning out, hairs falling out here and there. The follicles may seem frail and dull. Exercise, eat right, and be happy!
A little maintenance goes a long way...
There's a sea of products out there on the market to help maintain that glorious beard of yours, ranging from your simple oils and balms to mustache wax, beard washes and conditioners. What you end up using depends entirely on your needs, and we're more than happy to help you find what's best for you and your facial hair!
