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!
