Beard oil is a blend
of extracts and essential oils that moisturizes your beard and the skin underneath. Typically you’ll find all-natural
ingredients like jojoba oil and argan oil, both of which have been used for centuries for their excellent emollient
properties. Top that emollience with fragrant essential oils like cedar and lavender and you’ve got a conditioner that
doubles as a cologne or an aftershave.
Skin Benefits: When you sport a beard, the skin underneath often gets
red, dry, and flaky. That’s because beards wick moisture away from the skin. Beard oil hydrates skin to prevent
beardruff (beard dandruff), which most gents would like to avoid.
Beard Benefits: Beard oil penetrates the hair
follicle with moisture, keeping hair healthy as it grows. It also acts as a styling product, taming flyaways and keeping
your beard soft, tangle-free, and smooth.
How do I use beard oil?
Put a few drops into your palm and
massage into skin and beard. It’s best to apply beard oil right after you wash your face since your pores are open and
can more readily absorb the oil. Using beard oil is especially important in the winter, when it’s cold and dry.
Not just for beards?
That’s right – you can use beard oil even if you don’t have a beard. Gents who
prefer sporting a few days’ stubble benefit just as much from a beard oil’s moisture and shine.
