TIPS FOR GROWING A FULL, LUXURIOUS BEARD
Do you think you’d look better with a great beard? Beards and facial hair have been considered signs of masculinity and virility throughout the ages. It will take the typical man about a month to grow out his beard. It may take a bit longer for the beard to completely fill in and unless you trim it regularly, your beard will continue to grow. There are several ways to maintain your beard and the look you choose will really depend on your personal taste and style. Once you’ve made the decision to grow a beard, there are a few things you can do to make your beard thick and lustrous.
Your beard reflects your health. If you live a healthy lifestyle, exercising regularly and eating well, chances are your beard will be thick and shiny. If not, you may end up with a straggly beard that will barely cover your face.
To help ensure you grow the best beard possible, the first thing you should do is consider your eating habits. When it comes to growing a beard, you are truly what you eat. Stick with a healthy, nutritious diet consisting of protein, complex carbohydrates, the right fats, and plenty of water. This is not rocket science, but eating a balanced diet of lean protein, leafy greens, fruits, and complex carbs will go a long way to helping you grow a great beard.
After nutrition, the next most important thing you can do for a healthy, thick beard is exercise. Exercising is the perfect way to improve circulation which is vitally important to healthy hair. Ancient Chinese medicine believes that blood flow is directly linked to hair growth, so get out there and rev up the aerobic exercise. When you exercise, your body more efficiently delivers essential nutrients throughout your system. This contributes to growing healthy hair. Exercise also increases your natural levels of testosterone which also helps stimulate facial hair growth.
One thing you should try and minimize while you’re growing a beard is stress. Stress is very unhealthy and will be reflected in how well you beard comes in. Not only can stress cause health problems such as heart health issues or strokes, it can disrupt your sleep and even your eating habits. We just talked about how important a healthy diet is to grow a beautiful beard, so you don’t want stress impacting your nutrition or your sleep.
When we are under a lot of stress, our body fights back by shutting down all but the critical systems. The body’s job is to conserve energy so we can fight the perceived danger causing the stress. This means your body will direct efforts away from growing your beard. There are things you can do to relieve stress.
If you are stressed all the time, your beard will reflect this and will not thrive. Try laughter to help relieve stress. Surround yourself with funny people or read some good jokes. It is also important to get enough sleep and to eat well. Lowering stress levels will help keep your beard in good condition.
When you decide to grow a beard, follow these tips for keeping it healthy and full. Eat right and get plenty of exercise and you’ll soon see the beautiful, full beard of your dreams.
