When we are starting out growing a beard or have a full beard, we always wish we could speed up the beard growth process. Although genetics and testosterone levels play a key role in the rate at which your beard grows, there are several ways you can help supercharge the beard growth process.
Here, we have listed out 7 things you should do everyday that can help your beard stay healthy and help you achieve beard growth faster
1. A HEALTHY DIET
Vitamins and minerals help increase the speed at which facial hair grows. Include Vitamins A, B, C and E in your diet as they speed up the hair growth process.
Increase the amount of protein in your diet. Protein found in meat, fish, eggs and nuts will help your facial hair grow more quickly. Eggs are very high in quality protein which is one of the essential building blocks of hair. One of the main vitamins for beard growth is biotin, and it just so happens that eggs are one of the richest sources of biotin.
Here's a list of other foods that promote a healthy beard:
- Sweet Potatoes - High in Beta-carotene
- Oysters - One of the best sources of zinc
- Spinach - Spinach is rich in calcium, iron, magnesium, protein, and potassium.
- Cinnamon - Cinnamon encourages the flow of oxygen to hair follicles.
- Liver - Contains protein, iron, and biotin.
2. DON'T TOUCH IT
When we start our beard journey we all go through what I call the ugly stage. Your facial hair grows at different rates on your face rather it be patchy in some spots or longer in others. So fight the beard itch, LEAVE IT ALONE and just let it grow! In time your patches will fill in, the itching will disappear and your man mane will look powerful and majestic.
3. KEEP IT MOIST
Improper or insufficient care of your beard and skin can result in dry, flaky skin underneath your beard. Moisturized skin and facial hair creates a better environment for hair to grow quickly, which will create a healthy foundation for faster beard growth. Use a premium quality beard oil or beard butter that includes all natural oils. Beard oil and beard butters mimic the natural oils produced by the skin, such as sebum which will help with beard itch, dandruff and act as a deep conditioner to help promote healthy hair growth and make your beard look and feel healthier.
4. BOOST TESTOSTERONE
The most efficient way to kick start beard growth can be through working out on a regular basis. Exercise increases testosterone which triggers beard growth. Working out improves overall health and the healthier you are, the stronger your hair growth and your overall body will be. Exercise also boosts metabolism, which can trigger facial hair growth.
5. Exfoliate & Cleanse
Exfoliate the skin underneath your beard. This will help remove dead cells and stimulate healthy hair growth. Your hair grows healthier and faster if the skin it's growing out of is kept clean and nourished. Using a high quality beard wash and beard conditioner that is formulated for beards will play a key role in having healthy, clean hair follicles for new beard growth.

6. Stay Hydrated
Water hydrates the body and helps to regulate the circulatory system, which feeds the hair follicle, which then stimulates hair growth. If your hair roots are deficient in adequate water levels your beard will eventually become dry, brittle and may stop growing. Stay hydrated!
It is said that your facial hair grows faster while you are sleeping! When you get enough rest, your stress levels are lower. When your stress levels are lower, hair is more likely to grow. Sleeping helps the body to regenerate testosterone, which is important for natural hair growth.
By spending a little extra time everyday, you can say hello to a more powerful, healthy and stronger beard game.
