Some guys are blessed with super-fast and thick growing facial hair. Congrats, I’m jealous. And a lot of other guys too. Mini stubbles, patchy whiskers, slow growth – that’s the reality. The beard growth is set by genetics so I can’t promise you a miracle to happen. But there are some tricks you can try to maximize fullness and grow a beard faster.
In a nutshell: Do sports, sleep long. eat healthy and live healthy.
Body & Mind
Stress makes a lot of processes harder for your body. And hair growth is one of them. Stress can result in hair loss and patches. Try to be relaxed! When you put stress in a healthy balance, it will support to grow a beard faster
Sleep is important for a number of body functions, like retreating the defense system. But it’s also important for hair growth! Sleep will help the damaged skin cells to repair themselves. This has direct impact on the beard growth.
To manage stress, try exercising. It improves blood circulation to the face which leads to a better hair growth. Sports also reduces stress (read above).
Exfoliate the face skin
Removing dead skin cells from time to time. That will create a good base for new hair growth stimulation. You can try an exfoliation mask, a face scrub (not recommended for sensitive skin) or a Hot Oil Beard Treatment. The mask is applied on your face, left typically for 20-30 minutes and then rinsed of.
Wash your face with warm water and a sensitive cleanser in the morning and before going to bed. It encourages small hairs to grow. Read this post about the importance of a clean face skin. (LINK)
Keep it moist
Use a cream or moisturizer with eucalyptus. Eucalyptus is useful in helping hair grow more quickly on your face.
There are some minerals and vitamins supporting beard and hair growth. First, Biotin is important for a faster hair growth, so you should eat at least 2,5 mg each day. You can either buy supplements from your drugstore, or just try to eat some more healthy. This breakfast is a good example about beard friendly, healthy and Biotin rich food.
Also important is the family of B Vitamins (B1. B6, B12). These are all very useful in helping hair grow quickly. B Vitamins are covered by the power breakfast I mentioned before as well.
Also Protein can take a positive effect on beard growth. It can be found in meat, eggs and nuts.
Fruits and vegetables
Last but not least – eat fruits and more vegetables! They provide the mentioned minerals and vitamins for a proper hair and beard growth. And hair can’t grow without nutrients in the body.
All this can help to grow a beard faster. What are your experiences?
