Let’s dive into the details….

Before you know the techniques of applying beard growth oil, I believe that having adequate knowledge about beard oil is a must.

What Is Beard Oil?

Beard oil is a sort of cosmetic product that is specifically produced for men. Some also consider beard as a leave-in-conditioner for skin and beard.

The primary job of beard oil is to nourish the skin below your beard as well as the beard itself. Depending on the ingredients used to make beard oil, it can keep your beard shiny, soft, and smooth as well.

Beard Oil Ingredients

Beard oil is produced using numerous types of ingredients. The most common ingredients are mentioned in the following:

  • Argan oil.
  • Jojoba oil.
  • Grapeseed oil.
  • Coconut oil.
  • Cedarwood oil.
  • Tea tree oil.
  • Lavender oil.
  • Rosemary oil.
  • Lime oil.
  • Rosemary Leaf Extract.
  • Hempseed oil.
  • Natural Vitamin E.
  • Natural fruit extracts.
  • Fragrance or Scent.

How Beard Oil Works?

Beard oil mainly works as a moisturizer for both the beard and skin area under it.

When you apply beard oil on your face, it goes directly to the root of facial hair known as fair follicles. Then this oil nurtures the beard in a way so that your beard can’t grow brittle.

In windy and cold weather environments, there is a higher chance of wicking the natural moisture away from your beard.

To avoid such problems, it is better to go for hydration on the beard area. Doing the hydration thing will help you in preventing dandruff, flaking, and skin dryness. And, that’s where beard oil comes into action.

Beard oil has the ability for doing hydration to the skin. At the same time, this oil works as a styling agent to improve the condition of your beard.

Some of the beard oil brands possess nutrients like natural Vitamin E. This sort of nutrient also helps to prevent problems like irritation and itchiness on the skin under your beard.

Well, this is how beard oil works. I hope you have got the gist.

Benefits of Using Beard Oil / Benefits of Beard Oil

Beard oil comes with numerous numbers of advantages. And, all of these benefits are for either your beard or the skin underneath.

The benefits of beard oil are as follows:

Hydrates and Nourishes

One of the major benefits of beard oil is that it nourishes your facial hair in a way that makes your beard softer. In fact, your beard becomes more manageable within a short time after you start using the beard oil.

Beard oil hydrates to both your skin and facial hair. Even this oil can reach the hair follicle. And, this works great for giving your beard the needed kind of nourishment.

At the same time, I must tell you the fact that your beard absorbs all the moisture from your facial skin. And, this may turn your skin into a dry one. But, beard oil can reach the root of the facial hair which works for supplying adequate moisture to the skin area.

• Prevents Dandruff

When your facial skin becomes dry, it may cause beard dandruff. And, being a man, you know how disgusting the beard dandruff is.

However, with beard oil, you get the perfect solution to that beard dandruff problem. If you use beard oil regularly (following the instructions properly), then you don’t need to worry about problems like beard dandruff.

• Prevents Beard Itching

When your facial skin doesn’t get enough moisture, then it leads to skin itching. And, I just hate this skin itching thing. Besides, if you scratch your facial skin continually, it may cause serious types of skin problems too.

But, when you have beard oil, you won’t have any skin itching. Beard oil can supply the needed amount of moisture along with nourishment that prevents any kind of beard itching.

• Softens Beard

Beard oil consists of different types of oil, fruit extracts, and even some added vitamin like Vitamin ‘E’. These ingredients have the amazing ability to soften your facial hair.

When it comes to beard style, you get the utmost advantage with the soft beard. And, beard oil is there for you to make your beard hair softer.

• Scents Fresh

Most of the beard oil types come with an attractive scent or fragrance. And, surprisingly, this scent has some kind of longer-lasting effect.

Therefore, when you apply beard oil on your face, it smells totally clean and fresh. Some aftershaves possess some kind of harsh scent. But, with beard oil, there is no chance of getting any harsh fragrance or scent.


• Helps Beard Grow

Beard oil helps your beard to grow at a higher rate than the usual one. But, it doesn’t mean that it happens overnight. Don’t expect your face full of thick bear within a night after your 1st use of beard oil.

The ingredients of beard oil can nourish your beard hair. At the same time, it can reach the root of your beard. As a result, it strengthens the hair follicle.

When you don’t have much of a beard on your face, using the right kind of beard oil best suits your skin type can help you get a positive result.

How To Apply Beard Oil


By this time, you have got a brief understanding of what beard oil is. Besides, you have also got yourself acquainted with ingredients of beard oil and uses benefits as well.

So, now it is time I should explain the step by step procedure about how to apply beard oil the right way:

Step 1 – Wash Your Hands

The very first thing you should do is to wash your hands with light warm water. You can also use a hand soap while washing your hands as it will kill any type of germs or bacteria (if found on your hand).

Step 2 – Best Time To Apply Beard Oil

The best time to apply beard oil on your face is right after you finish your shower.

Well having a shower with steam and heat will open the hair pores. And, this is the best condition of your facial skin where beard oil can easily go to the root of the facial hair.

But, if you don’t like to take a shower before applying beard growth oil, then you have to start following Step 1.

When you have washed your hands, now pour some light warm water in a bowl (shaving mug can also be an option if it is properly cleaned).

Now apply the water on your facial skin and your beard as well. Washing your face with light warm water will also help to open the skin pores. And, this is ultimately what we need before applying beard oil on our face.

Step 3 – Dry Your Facial Skin

We all know the fact that water and oil will never mix. So, before you apply beard oil on your face or beard, you have to dry your skin.

In this case, you can use a clean and soft towel to dry up your skin. This may take around a minute or two to dry your entire facial skin.

At the same time, don’t forget to dry your hands too as you will have to use your hands to apply beard oil to your face.

Step 4 – Pour the Beard Oil

In this step, you have to pour the beard oil in your hand from the oil bottle. But, here is something tricky that you have to focus on.

Well, most men do know about how much beard oil to apply.

Actually, it is very ‘IMPORTANT’ for you to have a clear understanding of how much beard oil you should apply on your face.

If you don’t have any idea about the right quantity, there are chances that the result can be disappointing.

But, don’t get worried my friend, I will discuss about the right quantity later on in this discussion.

Step 5 – Rub Your Hands

After pouring oil in one of your hands, you have to gently rub your hands together. Rubbing gently will help the oil to be spread over all the areas of your hands.

This won’t take much time and you can easily understand when to stop rubbing your hands.

Step 6 – Applying Oil on Beard

Now, it is the perfect time you have to apply the beard oil on your facial hair beard. While applying this oil on your beard, you have to maintain a certain direction to move your hands.

It would be better if you start rubbing from the top portion of the beard. And, then go slowly to the bottom.

In the case of rubbing, make sure you do the thing in a way so that the beard oil can reach the skin beneath your beard.

Step 7 – Message Your Face

After you’re done with applying oil in your beard, now you should massage your face with oil remaining on your hand.

This may sound weird to some folks. But, Yes, my friend – it will work to improve the condition of your skin.

Since beard oil has ingredients like Vitamin E, so this type of added Vitamin will help nourish your skin.

However, if you have an acne problem, then you should perform a proper check on the ingredients of the beard oil before you use it on your face. Never apply beard oil on your face (for acne cases), if the oil type has ingredients like coconut oil.

Step 8 – Brush Your Beard

Lastly, you can brush your beard to get it in line. For this purpose, you can use either a comb or a hairbrush. Any of these mentioned items will serve the purpose.

Well, these are all the necessary steps regarding how to apply beard oil. But there is something more that I should tell you.

This is like a ‘must-read’ for you so that you don’t commit a mistake.

This is very important and it basically depends on the type of beard you have. If you have a beard with average looks, you can use 6-7 drops of oil a day. Using in such a way will take around 3 months to finish the bottle.

Well, but not everyone can use 6-7 drops of beard oil a day.

But, in the normal sense, you can use beard oil twice a day –

  • Once in the morning.
