#1) Eat right! A healthy diet is the core to growing an epic beard. Vitamins A, C, and E are key nutrients that will be core elements to beard growth.
- Vitamin A will aid in repairing and maintaining healthy skin. Healthy skin will promote better hair growth.
- Vitamin C and Vitamin E aid in the production of sebum. Sebum is a natural oil produced by skin. Sebum is key to moisturizing hair and help your beard grow thicker.
- Omega 3 fatty acids are essential to hair growth. Fatty acids will protect and strengthen hair follicles which will also aid in beard growth. A diet rich in these elements is an overlooked key element to beard growth.
#2) Let your hair grow! Sometimes we are anxious during the early stage of the journey and sometimes trim too much too soon. Let it grow! Take your time and be patient. An epic beard doesn’t happen overnight, it takes time. Most often, it is during this time where frustration sets in. We may not see the beard we imagined right away. But trust the process. It will grow, given you take care of it.
#3) This brings us to the next tip, take care of it! Keep your face clean and moisturized. Try to avoid harsh chemicals and synthetics as these can do more damage to your beard. Natural oils and butters are very similar to the oils your body produces and will work with the body instead of against it. Keep your beard moisturized and conditioned, even during the initial stages. This will help prevent itching during the beginning growth phase. A good routine will put you in the best position for an epic beard and great hygiene.
