Bearded men were turning heads long before grunge bands declared facial hair fashionable. There’s just something about a well-groomed guy that makes you stop and stare. But you also can't help but notice when a hair is out of place, especially when it's rubbing roughly across your partner's face.
Luckily, there’s a product that can tame the most unruliest of gruff. It's called beard oil and it's packed with conditioning ingredients like jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond and hemp oil; oils that are essential for maintaining facial hair.
“Most men don’t think they need to use grooming products on their beards, or don't know how to use them properly” says Meyers, co-founder of Stripped Sugar Scrubs. “But men should take care of their facial hair as much as they take care of the hair on their heads, if not better care, considering the rigours a beard faces each day."
Beard oil doesn't just moisturize facial hair, it also gets to the skin beneath, pulling double-duty as a styling product. The ideal beard should look shiny and groomed — not dusty, flaky and shaggy.
The best time to apply beard oil is right after washing your face. We recommend treating your beard with oil right after showering or cleansing. This will have your pores open and ready to absorb the oil. Caring for your skin is crucial, especially in cold or dry climates. One or two squirts is all you need and our essential oils have long-lasting, yet subtle aromas that will last for hours. Longer beards should reapply 3-4 times a day for optimal grooming. Here's how:
Rub the beard oil into your hand, then massage it throughout your beard. If your beard is longer, use a comb to make sure the product is evenly distrubted and penetrates to your skin.
Beard oil keeps facial hair flake-free and smelling fresh.
