If you’re looking for tips to improve your beard growth, you’ve come to the right spot.

I’ll be the first to tell you, growing a beard is heavily influenced by genetics. There is no denying that, and we aren’t here to sell you snake oil.

That said, there are some scientifically proven ways to improve your beard growth that you absolutely do have control over, and that's what we are going to cover here.

1. Maintain a Healthy Diet

Probably not what you wanted to hear, I know.

But it’s true.

You may not realize it, but your diet can have a profound impact on the growth and quality of your beard.

A balance and nutrient-rich diet provides the necessary building blocks for healthy hair growth.

Here are some dietary tips to optimize your beard growth:

  • Protein!
    Your beard hairs are made up of proteins, so it’s essential to consume an adequate amount of protein-rich foods like lean meats, fish, eggs, and nuts.
  Plus... protein makes you jacked. 

  • Vitamins and Minerals!

Certain vitamins and minerals play a crucial role in promoting hair growth.

Vitamin A, Biotin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, zinc, and iron are particularly important. 

Include foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and seeds into your diet to ensure you’re getting these essential nutrients.

  • Stay Hydrated!

Drinking plenty of water helps keep your skin and hair hydrated, supporting healthy beard growth.

              I can’t stress this one enough, gentlemen.

2. Adopt A Good Skincare Routine 

I’m here to tell you that a better skincare routine will result in a better beard, and there’s nothing girly about that. 

The skin under your beard plays arguably the biggest role in your beard growth and health.

Keep your skin cleaned using a natural beard wash and apply oil daily to the skin to moisturize after cleaning.

Doing so will prevent itchiness and flakiness while promoting beard growth.

Brushing or combing your beard regularly will also help stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles and distribute beard oil and butter evenly.

This will not only make your beard look better, but the circulation will help aid in boosted beard growth.

3. Be Patient and Avoid Over-Trimming 

Patience is key when it comes to growing a beard. It’s that simple. 

Everyone’s facial hair grows at a different rate, though on average, a beard can grow about half an inch per month. So it may take several months to achieve your desired beard length and thickness.

During the growing process, avoid the temptation to trim or shape a beard too often, as it may disrupt and slow down the growth process. 

While it’s essential to keep your beard shaped and well groomed, try to avoid taking much length off and focus on the beard lines and sideburn areas to keep it organized without sacrificing length.

Final Thoughts:

Growing a full, healthy beard requires dedication and care. By following these three steps, you can optimize your beard growth and achieve the style you desire as quickly as possible. 

Embrace the uniqueness of your beard journey as each stage brings it’s own pros and cons, and just remember that it’s a long game that’s well worth the effort.
