We hope you have taken something useful from each post of ours that you may have read, as today we wanted to continue merrily along the path of beardy knowledge as we give you 4 Tips To Help You Grow A Gloriously Great Beard...
LET IT GROW! LET IT GROW!
One of the first mistakes many new beardsmen make when first deciding to grow out what they hope will be a glorious beard is the try to 'tidy up' what little they have far too soon. Usually this happens because they're simply not used to having a face full of stubbly hair, which might feel messy and look a little scruffy. But first and foremost before you consider any form of tidying up you've got to let it grow out. Believe me, if you go at it too soon with a razor or trimmer you'll only be harvesting away all the hard work you've already put in rather than helping it. So, ride it out for at least a couple of months before you do so. Trust me, it will be worth it.
SKIN CARE FIRST AND FOREMOST!
It is never too early to practice a solid grooming routine. Even if you only have a little light stubble you can now start caring for your skin and what will soon be beard. Afterall it can only prove beneficial to take good care of your facial skin, as this will provide the foundation for your beard to grow out from. I've used this example numerous times before, but imagine you are growing out your own vegetables in a veggie patch. You first want to get the richest, healthiest top soil for your veggies to grow out of. Well, think of your faces skin doing the same for you and your beard, as the more hydrated and well balanced your skin is, the healthier your beard will grow. True story, Bro.
FIGHT THAT DREADED ITCH!
It's been a very long time since I had to suffer at the hands of the dreaded 'beard itch.' Although I can remember how unbelievably torturous it was as if it was just yesterday. Thankfully this stage doesn't last for very long, and can be soothed with a little added TLC. What causes the itch to form to begin with is the skin becomes easily irritated as it adapts to the new changes. You can help with the transition by applying a touch of beard oil which will soften those tiny hairs as they begin to break through the skins surface, which in turn will cause far less skin irritation, which equals far less itching. Whatever you do, DO NOT QUIT! As I promise this'll be over in next to no time.
SHAPE UP THAT BEARD AND TAKE GOOD CARE OF IT!
Once your stubble has formed into what can only be described as an epic beard, it's now time to enjoy the fruits of your labour. Afterall that beard of yours didn't happen overnight.
