Beard oil is a men’s hair-care product which is designed to mimic natural skin oils, moisturizing the skin beneath a beard while improving the appearance and manageability of the beard itself. Using a beard oil will help moisturize your beard and keep your beard conditioned, shiny and will reduce dryness on your facial skin. A good beard oil should improve styling and helps reduce the use of the beard gels and sprays. A natural beard oil protects your facial pores from dust and the harsh effects of beard gels and sprays, which can cause breakouts.
Application is simple. Wash your beard with an organic shampoo in the shower. Place 5-6 drops of the beard oil on your finger tips and rub them together. Now massage upwards into your beard and skin, under the chin and cheeks. And lastly, comb your beard for even distribution of the oil. After 2 to 3 weeks of regular use, you should see a more well-conditioned and healthier beard.

But there are some possible risks and side-effects. Not only will you have to deal with the masses wanting to grope your face and feel your luscious beard, but there are a few risks to adding oils to your beard. Using all-natural beard oil will keep their beards hydrated and will keep the hair from breaking and causing split ends, but depending on your skin, you may experience a possible allergic reaction. Make sure your oils are fresh and not spoiled or oxidized from improper storage or are expired.
Citrus oils are commonly found in many beard oils due to their health benefits; however these citrus oils may be photosensitive and can cause your skin to become more sensitive to UV light. Those with a pale complexion, who find themselves burning easily in the sun, should consider using an oil-free beard product instead.
Avoid beard oils with “fragrance,” or “fragrance oil” listed on their label. This means that the product contains synthetic fragrance oils that can actually be harmful to your health. Make sure your beard oil is actually “all-natural.”
Beard oils can be a great way for men with beards to keep their facial hair moisturized and healthy. However they may not be for everyone. If you are prone to allergic reactions or other health issues, we recommend using oil-free beard care products instead. But using a beard oil, for most men, will condition and make your beard thicker and fuller.
