Caring for your skin involves creating a ritual that works and sticking to it. We are provided with one body and taking care of it should always be a priority. You may have heard advice on how to keep your skin smooth and blemish free. Tricks like drinking plenty of water, getting enough rest and staying away from an overindulgence of fried, greasy foods seem to be the standard. But did you know incorporating essential oils into your skincare regime can have great results? Having smooth skin lays the foundation for an outstanding beard! Check out three essential oils that will keep your face in top condition:

 

#1 - Frankincense Oil

Extracted from the Olibanum tree, Frankincense is a natural cytophylactic, meaning it encourages new cell growth to help combat aging. Battling scars, large pores or acne? Frankincense also has anti-inflammatory and natural toner properties making it a go to to reduce blemishes and decrease the overall appearance of pores. Its healing characteristics helps repair dry, chapped skin. Looking to smooth out that skin around your beard? Look no further than this awesome essential oil! Add a few drops to a base oil to your lotion before going to bed for a week. You’ll definitely see a difference!

#2 - Geranium Oil

Having trouble with chronically dry skin? Or struggling with constant oily skin? Aside from regular water intake, Geranium oil is your new best friend. Under-producing oil on your skin can cause flaky skin that cracks and peels and eventually contributes to a wrinkly face. Conversely, skin that is overproducing can lead to clogged pores and multiple breakouts. No matter what end of the spectrum you’re on, geranium oil is your best friend. Try adding a drop to your daily moisturizer to keep your oils in check! 

#3 - Sandalwood Oil

Rashes, eczema, or psoriasis can zap the moisture from your skin. Sandalwood is particularly good at hydrating and replenishing your face. Along with a seriously good smell, sandalwood oil also acts as an emollient, smoothing skin and relieving any type of inflammation. Be sure to dilute a few drops into a carrier, like lotion or a carrier oil before using!


Women aren’t the only ones that benefit from essential oils. There are many options to keeping your face smooth, hydrated, and blemish free, in tip top shape for a beard! Got your skin in check? Check out our Beard Butters to make sure your beard matches your face’s moisture!

4 Reasons Your Beard Won't Grow

There’s no doubt that beards are definitely back in style, sometimes the longer the better! But what if you’re having trouble growing a beard? You could be self-sabotaging your own glorious beard! Here are four reasons you’re a part of the skins crew instead of the beards army: #1 - You Can’t Commit Growing a beard can be a pain starting out. Hair pushes its way out of your skin, causing the skin itself to dry out quicker and become flaky. For some this sensation can be enough to call it quits after just a few weeks. Resist the urge to cut the prickly new hairs off. To combat this, make sure you consistently wash, exfoliate and moisturize your skin. Exfoliating actually helps remove dead skin which in turn stimulates hair growth! #2 - You Don’t Maintain The Beard You Have Believe it or not, your baby beard can become a split end nightmare and affect your beard goals if you’re not maintaining and taking care of what your have, Maintaining moisture through oils, (like our Beard Oil Dropper) will promote hair growth. You should also keep a beard trimmer handy. Keeping a clean look will help your beard grow more evenly as it gets longer and thicker! #3 - You’re Not Taking Care Of Your Health Yes. Skipping those vitamins and eating like there’s no tomorrow is probably slowing down your beard infamy. Beards are hair and hair needs nutrients and minerals to thrive. If you’re not taking care of yourself, eating better, and drinking plenty of water behind those late night drinks, you’re probably selling yourself short of your beard dreams! #4 - Genetically Speaking, A Mustache/Goatee Is As Far As You’ll Get We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but sometimes, no amount of healthy eating, maintenance or water and vitamins will make your beard grow. We are all at the whim of our genetic makeup and while some men might lose their hair and rock a shiny bald head, some men will only know the glory of a goatee. Not to fear, goatees also need moisture love, check out our butters to help keep that goatee smooth and moisturized! No matter where you are in your beard journey, we can help keep your situation moisturized! Blog Contributor: Kescheler Nix-Powell
