Whether for maintaining a long beard or a three-day stubble, beard oil is a treatment to include in your routine. Sometimes, it happens that this type of product does not give the expected results, leaving a too greasy finish. This can be due to improper use of the treatment. Discover here how to use beard oil wisely.
In short, beard oil.
This treatment is typically used to improve the appearance and/or stimulate the growth of beard hair. Most commonly, a beard oil contains two types of ingredients: vegetable oils to nourish and soothe the skin, and essential oils to provide fragrance and also limit the growth of bacteria. Some beard oils are enriched with active ingredients to stimulate hair growth and thus fill in any potential gaps. These may includebasil extract and/orcastor oil.
A beard oil is multifunctional. It serves tosoften and tame the hairs, limit the growth of bacteria, hydrate the skin and reduce potential itching related to shaving, as well as provide a pleasant fragrance to create a true moment of well-being. Dry skin types, which tend to have a thick and brittle beard, can apply this type of treatment daily, morning and evening. However, combination to oily skin types should favour an application frequency of once a day or even once every two days.
Beard Oil: Instructions for Use.
Having previously defined the frequency of use, let's now turn our attention to its method of application:
Firstly, thebeard oil is preferably applied to a clean beard. Beards can easily accumulate dust and dirt. It is important to clean them regularly, especially before applying a treatment. Moreover, cleaning unclogs the pores, allowing the treatment to penetrate deeply into the hair follicles. Cleaning the beard will also help to sanitise the skin underneath. In this regard, you could, for example, use ourpurifying cleansing gel. Enriched with purifying active ingredients such as zinc PCA, this cleansing gel sanitises the skin, regulates sebum production and limits the development of imperfections.
Note : Consider removing the dead skin cells present on the surface of the skin with a beard scrub, and thus prevent the development of ingrown hairs under the beard, purify the skin and stimulate hair growth.
It is only once the beard is clean and dry that beard oil can be applied over it. The bottles of beard oil usually contain a pipette to measure the amount of treatment to apply. Depending on the length of the beard, pour a few drops into the palm of your hands, then warm the substance by rubbing them together. Finally, carefully apply it along the hairs of the beard from roots to tips. Do not hesitate to run your fingers through the hairs to ensure the treatment penetrates deeply.
Tip: The brushing step is not mandatory, but we recommend accompanying the application of beard oil with a few strokes of a beard brush or comb. This precaution is necessary, especially if the hairs are long. This way, you can distribute the product more evenly along the lengths and to the tips. In this manner, the beard will be groomed and the beard oil will be evenly distributed.
