Your skin’s job is to protect you from the harsh elements of the outside world. For that reason your skin can be taking some serious abuse. In order to keep your skin healthy, your body is constantly regenerating cells. By exfoliating your face twice a week using an exfoliating scrub or mask, you can remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of hair. Using Mystic Man Beard Oil helps condition and soften facial hair, reduce itching, and encourage growth of a quality beard. Mystic Man is formulated for all lengths of facial hair, so whether you are a stubble guy or a fully fledged beard man, you can enjoy the benefits to both hair and skin that Mystic Man has to offer.
Look out for In-grown Hairs
Facial hair will not grow evenly with in-grown hairs. Men with more thick, coarse, and/or curly hair may be at a higher risk for ingrown hairs. Gently wash and exfoliate around the ingrown hair. This may help the hair return to the surface of the skin. Use a hot wash cloth to make a hot compress over any suspected embedded hairs and gently move the cloth in a circular motion to try to pry the hair loose. If that fails, use a pair of tweezers to carefully pull the ingrown hair. Be sure to sterilize and clean the area before and after extraction.
Lifting and working out enhances testosterone and testosterone is essential in beard growth. Leg exercises like squats and leg press tend to have more testosterone building powers. Check out these specific exercises to boost testosterone levels.
Eat Protein Rich Foods
A high protein diet is another factor in achieving healthy testosterone levels for beard growth. Eggs and animal based protein in addition to nuts are a good way to boost protein levels. Increasing your consumption of dairy is also another key tip. A new study published in the Biological Trace Elements Journal suggests that those who supplement their diet with foods high in calcium show greater testosterone levels.
Get Enough Sleep
Sleep helps in repairing damaged skin cells and promoting the growth of facial hair. Have trouble browsing the web before bed? Use apps like f.lux or Twilight to help you to put down the mobile devices and get some sleep.
