Growing a beard: the issues

Thankfully there is a one-stop solution to all of these problems, let’s find out.
One-stop solution to our beard woes: Beard oil
A quality beard oil is made of organic essential and carrier oils sourced from various seeds and organic substances. It supplies the moisture that your beard craves, and that can make a great difference. Often the reason our beard doesn’t grow smoothly or looks unhealthy is that of the lack of adequate moisture. The hair follicles equipped with sebum glands are responsible for providing moisture to the beard hair. But as it grows longer, the dirt and dead skin accumulate at the pores and clogs the ducts which lose moisture. As a result, it leads to coerce hair growth, painful sores, rashes and dead skin from the itchiness.
Beard oil penetrates the pores, clears the dirt and supplies the necessary moisture that makes your beard smoother and by extension cleaner. The smell issue is also resolved by the attractive organic musk that the essential oils add to your beard. Beard oil not only moistens your manly mane, it also adds moisture to the surrounding skin which is difficult to reach otherwise. Keeping the skin hydrated reduces the chances of dry skin, rashes or acne and promotes a healthy and soft beard growth which is easier to style.
So, grab your favourite beard oil and give your beard a gentle massage from root to tip after every morning shower or before going to bed, whichever routine works best for you and see how your beard becomes your best wing-man.
