How do you feel about beards being back? To give your beard a little DIY nourishment find your favourite beard oil and let it grow on you...

 

They say there are two types of people in this world: those who appreciate good beards and those who are wrong. If you can pull off a bright and beautiful beard you can pull off anything! However, there is nothing worse than a dry, prickly and frazzle-filled face. Boys, it’s important to remember that just like the top of your head, your boastful beards need some taking care of too. This means regularly shampooing, conditioning and trimming but one thing that’s often forgotten is: oiling. Natural oils applied to the beard, are the secret to being a better man because you get a better beard. Not only do natural oils nourish and moisturise facial hair but they also hydrate the skin underneath, keeping your face flawlessly fresh and smelling good too!

 

 

Beard oils work in different ways to nourish and maintain healthy beard hair; they are the essential formula to achieving a sleek and shiny look. They also importantly keep the skin under the beard smooth and soft and work wonders on itching, sensitivity, beard-druff and dryness, allowing you to groom your beard neat and smooth. The Native American Indians used natural oils such as almond and grape-seed to keep their beards radiant. Since then, beard trends have made several comebacks through fashion and with that beard oils have stood by their side! There is an oilcyclopedia for beards and picking the right one is unique to each beard and skin type so it’s important to know the different blends and ingredients there are available when you’re looking for your magic beard potion...
