Over the years, facial hair has always been a symbol of power, a sign of masculinity, and a source of pride. Have you tried all sorts of expensive therapies on how to grow your facial hair?
Well, you are not alone. There are many guys out there who are also trying hard to ensure they get a perfect beard. Over the years, I have tried many of these techniques to get a great beard.
Using these tips, you could be on your way to growing a thick beard:
1. Regular Vitamins
Believe it or not, some of the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in your daily diet can have a huge impact on your ability to grow a beard. Your facial hair growth can be impacted by proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, as well micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals. Therefore, make sure that you are getting good levels of zinc, magnesium and vitamin D that induce the production of testosterone. This hormone directly affects facial hair growth. Also, eating eggs, salmon, spinach, broccoli, nuts, and dairy products will gradually brighten and keep your facial hair healthy.
2. Skin Care
Most men often feel lazy and unconcerned when it comes to skin care. But seriously, a man should always take care of the skin underneath his beard. First, try to avoid taking too hot showers and washing your face with hot water as it will cause your skin to dry out. Drying out the skin underneath prevents the develoment of sebum that will keep that region greased. After washing, use a good moisturizer to soothe and protect your skin. Moisturizers with vitamin B5 are known to aid blood circulation in the skin, which is essential for facial hair growth.
3. Sleep Properly
Having less than 5 hours of sleep daily will not only affect your productivity, it will also affect your entire well-being. The average adult needs at least seven hours of sleep daily. Your body needs time to repair itself, and this occurs when you sleep. This daily routine strengthens the growth of facial hair and also improves your general wellness.
4. Regular Exercise
Another healthy lifestyle option you can do to get your beard to grow is exercise. Regular exercise is also a key element in maintaining bodily functions, including hair growth. Focusing on aerobic exercises improves blood circulation, and proper blood circulation helps you maintain a high metabolic rate. In other words, all the nutrients you eat can help stimulate hair growth to reach the hair follicles on the face much faster if you have a good circulatory system that improves even more with aerobic exercise. Engage in a moderate aerobic exercise for about 15 to 25 minutes daily and your testosterone level will increase automatically due to the increase in your heartbeat.
5. Fat and Protein
Proteins and fats are key players in the healthy stimulation of rapid hair growth, including facial hair growth. The hair itself is partially built of protein, and healthy hair is coated with oils and fats. As a result, the rapid growth of healthy beard requires protein and fat. In addition, protein and fat can boost testosterone, another key player in facial hair growth.
Eating proteins can stimulate and accelerate the growth of thicker hair. Eggs and animal fats can be effective as well, but it is better to limit the total consumption of these fats as they can cause circulatory problems if consumed in excess.
Facial hair radically alters the perception that others have about you, and growing clean and healthy facial hair will be beneficial to you. Men judge people at first sight, and your beard can really do a lot to change the perception of another. Your facial hair can make you look mature and handsome, but if you appear rough and unkempt with a full beard you will be viewed as dirty. Therefore, a man’s value can be judged by his beard.
