Reduce stress

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

Rest enough

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.

Exercise frequently

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).

Skin care

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.

Clean skin

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)
