5 Tips For Growing A Beard In 2023
Beards have made a comeback in recent years, and they’re here to stay. While it might seem like everyone is growing one, there are people who aren’t sure how to grow their beard out. We're here to help! Here are our top 5 tips for getting the most out of your beard-growing experience when starting.
Grow It Out
Grow out your beard. It may seem like a no-brainer, but growing a beard can be tough for some guys. If you're one of them, give yourself the gift of time—let your facial hair grow out for a few weeks before giving up on it entirely and shaving everything off. A good length is about 2-3 inches from the bottom of your face and somewhat evenly distributed across the cheeks and chin (that last part might require some patience). Once your facial hair has grown to this point, you'll be able to have an indication if it will gain more fullness as it gets longer.
Patience. Beard growth is a process, not a linear one and it's not a sprint or marathon either. So if you do not see results immediately, don't be discouraged—it'll come in time!
Don't shave! You might get tempted, especially when growing out your beard for the first time. But by shaving too early in the process you risk damaging your facial hair's ability to grow new hairs and cause irritation that could make your face break out in acne (yikes).
Don’t Get Itchy, Use Beard Oil
The best thing you can do is use beard oil. Beard oil is a great way to moisturize the skin beneath your beard, and it keeps your skin healthy and protects it from damage, especially if you have sensitive skin. It also helps to keep your beard soft, which means that it's less likely to get itchy or scratchy.
If you want to maintain your beard's health and softness, it's important to use good beard oil. We recommend that you use Copper John's Beard Oil, which is a specially formulated blend of ingredients that will keep your beard soft and healthy. Copper John's Beard Oil contains Meadowfoam Seed oil, which has been shown to help prevent clogged pores; it also contains jojoba oil, which works as an antioxidant and moisturizer. In addition to its moisturizing benefits, this beard oil also helps reduce dandruff and itching.
Wash & Condition
Yes, you read that right! Your beard needs to be washed just like the rest of your body. If you want your beard to look good and feel soft, it’s important to wash it with a shampoo designed for it. That’s why Copper John’s is a great choice, its daily condition wash is gentle enough to use daily while still cleaning out the gunk and any buildup. Using our beard wash and conditioner (Sweet Water) will help keep dirt from accumulating in the hair follicles and prevent dandruff from forming. Which is important for the health of your beard.
Staying hydrated is one of the most important things you can do for your body. Water makes up more than 60% of your body weight, and it's crucial for keeping everything working properly. Your skin, hair, and nails all benefit from drinking plenty of water each day. In addition to helping prevent dehydration, staying hydrated also can help clear out toxins in the body that cause acne—an issue that can negatively impact beard growth. Proper hydration will also help your beard from feeling dry and brittle. So make sure you are drinking plenty of water.
And that’s it! If you can practice these five steps, you’ll be well on your way to a more healthy and great-looking beard in 2023.
