Can Lifestyle Help Beard Growth?

 

What aspects of your lifestyle may influence your beard growth?

Following on from our earlier article on diet and beard growth (if you missed it click here to read), today we look at lifestyle.

Facial hair growth is largely driven by testosterone, and there are some lifestyle habits you can get into that help boost your testosterone production.

Exercise

It promotes blood flow and helps stimulate your hair follicles.

Strength training and weightlifting can temporarily boost your testosterone levels.

Keeping your BMI (body mass index) in an acceptable range can also help, as obesity can lower your testosterone.

Sleep

Testosterone is released during sleep, so not getting enough rest or having fragmented sleep can interfere with this process.

Washing & Moisturising

Keeping your beard and skin clean and in good condition also helps.

Using a beard brush can help exfoliate your face, and remove the dead skin cells and debris from around your hair follicles.

Exfoliating and brushing can also help prevent ingrown hairs.

Use Beard Oil

Our beard oil acts like a leave in conditioner for your beard. It will soften and nourish your beard hair, keeping it moisturised.

It also fights beard itch and beardruff (dandruff, but in your beard - more about that here) and gives your beard a healthy shine and great fragrance.

It contains castor oil which is high in Vitamin E and is great for stimulating your hair follicles. (You can read more about castor oil and beard growth here).

If your skin is sensitive or irritated and you’re seeing patchy growth, we recommend giving our gold beard oil a try – the gold flakes soothe your skin and calm redness, giving your beard a great foundation to be as full and healthy as it can be.


Shaving

The idea that shaving your hair makes it grow back fuller seems to have been around forever, but it’s most definitely a myth.

Put the razor away and only use it to keep things looking neat and tidy (cheeks, neck etc.).
