Just follow these tips, and pray your genetics work in your favor to get the beard you always dreamt of:
Exfoliate and keep your face clean
The science is simple, for something to grow, it needs to be in ideal condition to grow. A clean face, free of pollutants from the air, dead skin, and other impurities makes for the ideal environment for healthy facial hair to grow.
You can use a face wash that contains Eucalyptus which not only has some great antioxidant properties, but keeps the face moisturised. Also use a exfoliating mask for men twice everyday to ensure the pores of the skin are deep cleaned and small hair growth is not obstructed by any kind of skin impurities.
Make sure you eat a lot of nutrient rich food
For any part of the body to grow, it needs a set of nutrients to feed the growth. The case with your beard is no different. Eating a balanced diet that contains ample amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and other important nutrients like sodium and iron. Ensure that you include the following foods in your diet:
- Natural proteins- Found in cereals, meat, eggs and other poultry and dairy products.
- Essential Fats- Present in Flaxseed, Sunflower seeds, Almonds, Cashews, Walnuts.
- Green vegetables
A well balanced diet ensures your growing beard receives all the nutrition it requires, not to mention, dumping fast food and adopting a healthy diet plan will help you lead a healthier life overall.
Biotin and Multivitamins
Biotin is a form of Vitamin A that has been proven to assist hair growth in humans. It can be obtained in form of a dietary supplement and is totally safe to consume. Although, since it is a dietary supplement, it is advisable to consult your physician before taking biotin, this way, you will become aware of any possible risks and the physician will also help you develop a diet plan that compliments the effects of biotin.
Hair requires a number of vitamins, similar to biotin for healthy growth. Vitamins like Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B1, and Vitamin D are just a few of the vitamins that your hair requires to grow. To supply the body with these vitamins you can obtain a reliable multivitamin supplement at your nearest pharmaceutical store. Keep in mind that these are also dietary supplements and should only be taken after due consultation of a certified physician.
A major reason behind poor hair growth and hair loss is stress. It is very important to come up with innovative methods to keep your stress levels in check to let your beard grow with its full potential.
Getting some exercise is a great stress buster. Additionally, exercise will improve blood circulation throughout the body, including the face where your beard will be nourished. Regular exercise has also been associated with higher testosterone production in men. Testosterone is the hormone that gives us the qualities associated with men, such as a beard, low pitched voice, body hair. Enhanced testosterone production has direct (positive) effect on the growth of your beard.
Growing a beard can be tough work. But it surely is not an impossible task, and anyone can adorn a majestic beard with a little bit of hard work, consistency, care, and a lot of patience. The most important part of growing a beard is to commit to growing a beard. For instance, if you are just starting, leave it alone for at least four to six weeks before you even try to shape it. If your beard is itching, that is no reason to completely shave it off, you just need a little bit of patience because as hair grows in length and density, it becomes softer and more manageable.
