THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO BEARD OILS

In men's grooming arsenal, few products rival the transformative power of beard oils. From taming unruly facial hairs to nourishing the underlying skin, these nutrient rich elixirs offer numerous grooming benefits for the modern man. With a plethora of options flooding the market, finding the perfect beard oil with the right texture, function and scent can feel like a daunting task.

Benefits of Beard Oils

Beard oils are a multifaceted oil serum for men's facial hair. Beard oils soften and condition the facial hair, making it more soft, healthy, manageable and less prone to breakage. It also hydrates and moisturizes the skin beneath the beard, preventing itchiness, dryness, and flakiness. The oil leaves behind a refreshing, masculine scent, to elevate your grooming routine and mood. 

Choosing the Best Beard Oil

There’s an abundance of beard oils on the market. Some factors to consider are your skin type, length of facial hair and your personal scent preference.  Choose lightweight, non-comedogenic oils if you have oily or acne-prone skin, while those with dry or sensitive skin may benefit from richer, more nourishing formulations with jojoba oil, argan oil, and vitamin E, as these have more moisturizing and conditioning properties without leaving a greasy residue.

Most beard oils are a combination of the key oils outlined below and scented with either essential oils or fragrances.  We suggest beard oil formulations scented with essential oils as the essential plant oils provide not only a great aroma but also added nourishments for the facial hair and skin.

How to Used Beard Oils

 

Applying beard oil is an easy step in your grooming routine. Begin by dispensing only a few drops of oil onto your palms, then rub your hands together to warm the oil and then distribute it evenly. Gently massage the oil into your facial hair, starting from the roots and working your way to the tips. If needed, use a beard comb or brush to evenly distribute the oil and style your beard. For best results, use beard oil daily, after showering or washing your face, to lock in moisture and keep your beard looking its best.
