What beard oil does and how to use it
A great beard is a work of art. But let’s be honest: even the most impressive beards can get uncomfortable.
Facial hair is stronger and coarser than the hair on your head, and beneath that beard, your skin might be taking a hit too—after all, there can be thousands of hairs crammed into this relatively small area.
Whether your bearded friends talk about it or not, you can be sure they’ve suffered from dry skin, itchiness, and flaky skin beneath their beards at some point.
The solution? Nourishment—and lots of it. If you can nourish your mind and body, you can probably find time to keep your beard nourished too.
Beard meet beard oil.
What does beard oil do?
Beard oil helps your beard look and feel its best. Our King C. Gillette Beard Oil pulls this off with its combo of plant-based oils: specifically, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil and evening primrose oil.
It smells good too with notes of bergamot, sandalwood, cedarwood, patchouli and cardamom.
Conditions your beard
Most beard oils, including ours, are lightweight and never greasy to the touch. This makes them great for conditioning, so your beard will feel noticeably softer and smoother. Great news for you and your partner.
Moisturizes dry skin
Beard oil doesn’t just nourish your beard; it can also help to condition the skin underneath it. It’s harder to give the skin on your chin, cheeks and neck a good wash if they’re covered in facial hair, meaning your under-beard skin could start to itch and flake.
If you’ve got dark hair, flakes of skin can be easy to spot, but using a beard wash and a beard oil regularly can help to prevent flakes from showing up. Products like these will make your face feel a lot more comfortable and keep your confidence high.
Preps your beard for trimming
The hydrating and softening effects of beard oil make coarse beard hair much easier to style and groom. Even the longest beards require regular trimming to keep them growing healthily, and the styling process will be a lot smoother if your facial hair is soft.
How to use beard oil
Here’s how to make beard oil part of your daily grooming routine.
How to apply beard oil
- Empty a few drops of beard oil into the palm of your hand
- Massage the beard oil into your facial hair, making sure you’re combing it through completely
- Try to get down to the skin underneath your beard hair
How often should I use beard oil?
Try applying beard oil twice a day: once as part of your morning routine and again before you go to bed. This will help keep your facial hair soft, hydrated, and nourished.
