The beard is back, baby. And whether you like yours neat and tidy, or unkempt and blowing free in the wind, there are still a few things a man needs to keep to his facial hair comfortable, and looking incredibly good! One of those things is Beard Oil.

No, seriously—I’m not making this up. Beard Oil is a thing. If you wear a beard, you’ve probably already experienced the dreaded beard-itch, or been embarrassed by unsightly beardruff (not a cool fashion statement when you’re out on the town with your lady). Beard Oil can help with both those problems. Here’s why:

Facial hair, just like the hair on the rest of your body, grows out of a follicle – one hair per follicle. And at the root of the follicle are a couple of sebaceous glands that produce sebum, an oily substance that keep your hair nourished and moisturized. But the sebaceous glands can only produce so much sebum, and as your beard gets longer, the glands just can’t keep up. The result? Your beard, and more importantly, your skin, get dry and itchy. Then that dry, itchy skin starts flaking off creating the facial hair equivalent of dandruff for your face—bearduff.

Slapping on some Beard Oil supplements the natural sebum, giving your beard the nourishment it needs, and soothing your dry, itchy skin, helping to eliminate those unsightly face-flakes. The good news is, it doesn’t take much. Pour out about a dime-size into your palm, and dip your forefinger and thumb into the oil and rub it into your beard, starting at the base and working your way to the tips. Comb it through and enjoy a refreshed face!
