If you have any sort of facial hair, you should be keeping it hydrated with beard oil — which is basically like conditioner for your beard. Unlike the hair on your head, facial hair is a lot coarser and so needs a little more TLC to keep it healthy.
Beard oil can be applied on stubble but is usually recommended when hair growth starts to cover your skin. Layering on an oil product will help make your facial hair a lot softer and less spiky, making it more comfortable for you and a way more pleasant experience for the person kissing you.
It’s also important for preventing dryness that can lead to itching or dandruff and it even helps to promote beard growth. Many oils are scented with a pleasant aroma, so it’ll also make you smell nice. When applying beard oil, simply follow the instructions on the packaging of your chosen oil.
We’ve curated a list of beard oils below that will nourish and hydrate your facial hair, to have it looking and feeling its best.
