Better Beards Begin With Oil

Better Beards Begin With Oil

Does just the idea of growing a beard make your face itch? Are you about to shave yours off because it’s so uncomfortable? What if we told you there was a way to get rid of the dreaded beard itch while making it look awesome at the same time? It’s no secret, but beard oil can improve the quality of your whiskers and keep beard itch at bay.

 

What is Beard Oil?

Beard oil is essentially a conditioner for your face. It nourishes and moisturizes your beard, mustache, and skin while leaving a nice sheen on your beard. They’re usually made from natural oils like jojoba, castor, and argan oil, all of which have been used in moisturizers and conditioners for ages. There can also be other natural oils to help scent beard oils like, cedar, vanilla, and even tobacco or coffee giving the added benefit of being a stubble after shave without the shave.

 

Why Bother Using it?

At this point you might be asking yourself why bother with oil instead of using a conditioner or moisturizer. There are a few reasons you should use beard oil for your beard instead of a conditioner or moisturizer. The most important of them being your facial hair is not the hair on your head. Facial hair is thinner than normal hair making it more prone to drying out and getting damaged. Normal hair conditioners don’t have enough nourishing ingredients in them and are too thin while moisturizers are much too thick and are meant for just skin. Beard oils on the other hand give you the best of both worlds. It’s more nutrient dense than hair conditioner to keep your beard nourished while also moisturizing your skin and minimizing irritation.

Anyone who’s ever grown a beard can tell you about the dreaded itch. It’s caused by your beard irritating and literally sucking the moisture out of your face. Beard oils take care of this by supplementing both your beard and your skin. Beard oil will also help tame your mane. The weight of the oil will help with flyaways, making your beard look and feel amazing.
