How to grow a beard

Whether you are just getting started with stubble or have already mastered a beautiful beard, here is some advice for growing facial hair to be proud of.

Regular cleansing is essential

A perfectly styled beard needs to be washed frequently to look tidy and smell fresh. Try NIVEA MEN Power Refresh Gel to gently cleanse your head, body and facial hair at the same time to keep it clean and conditioned.

Keep it trim: how to shape a beard like a pro

  • Start by combing through the hair to detangle any knots.
  • Use clippers to trim the beard to the desired length.
  • If you like, graduate to a smaller clipper setting to fade the edges.
  • Use scissors to clean up any strays for a more natural finish.
  • Finish up with some beard oil or a moisturiser like NIVEA Sensitive Protect Moisturiser to prevent dryness.

Help, my beard isn’t growing – what can I do?

No man is the same, neither is his hair. But did you know that sports and your diet can actually have a great impact on how your beard is growing? No? Then learn now how you can make some simple lifestyle changes to improve your beard.

Start by heading down to the gym and grabbing the dumbbells – this increases your testosterone and could help your beard to grow faster.

Don’t forget about diet! Balanced eating and topping up your meals with plenty of Vitamins E and B will help to produce thicker, healthy hair for the beard you’ve always dreamed of.

Keep it clean

It’s surprising how much dirt and pollution can get trapped in facial hair during daily life. Regular cleansing is the first step towards ensuring your beard looks (and smells) great. NIVEA MEN Power Refresh Gel can be used to gently cleanse your head, body and facial hair at the same time.

Comb and tame the hair

Starting at the neckline, gently comb through the beard hair, detangling any knots and taming the unruly areas. If you hit any particularly tough snags, don’t tug too hard, as this may pull out or damage the hair. Instead, remove the comb and start again – you’ll get there!

Find your signature style

An unruly beard can be a pain, so keep it under control with some basic styling. Using a hairdryer and comb to tackle certain curly areas can keep your bristles looking extra dapper. But using heat too often can dry out the skin, so keep it for special occasions.

Moisturising beard care

Cleansing can strip the beard of its natural oils to leave it feeling dry. It’s vital to replenish the moisture in the skin and hair by applying a rich face cream like NIVEA MEN Creme or massaging in some beard oil.

Splash out on the right tools for the job

No matter how talented you may be, a perfectly groomed beard is only possible with premium tools. Invest in some high-quality clippers, sharp scissors and tweezers for tackling ingrown hairs. That way you’ll be all set for success!

How to take care of a beard

Just like the hair on your head, a striking beard requires time and maintenance to look its best. Cut back on the grooming and your beard’s appearance will suffer. Remember, it’s not just the hair you’re caring for, it’s the delicate skin underneath.

Decide on a beard grooming regime and stick to it. This means washing it, combing it, styling it and moisturising it on a regular basis. Only then will you achieve soft and manageable facial hair you’ll be keen to show off.
