Does beard oil work and should you use one?

A beard oil is a product that you'll find in the bathroom of almost any man with a beard—but you're still wondering whether it's worth the investment, right?  While it may seem like a frivolous purchase, it can have a significant impact on the overall health of your mane.

It's difficult to argue with the fact that beards have become a defining fashion statement of our time. As the "lumbersexual" look continues to reign supreme, many men are looking for ways to maintain, grow and care for their facial hair. 

In fact, we think it's one of the most important parts of any man's beard-care regimen. Not only will it help keep your facial hair looking healthy and polished, but it will also bring some major benefits to the underlying skin.


It turns out that growing a beard has more benefits than just its aesthetic appeal.

There are also health and practical reasons for growing out your facial hair: it can protect against allergies, skin irritation, sunburns… even colds!

A recent study showed that beards can be more effective than sun lotion at blocking harmful UV rays from damaging your skin—and the best part is that you'll get this protection for free (beards don't require much upkeep).

It's the perfect solution for men with dry, coarse or damaged facial hair who want to eliminate those problems and take their look to the next level.

If you've ever experienced itching or irritation from your beard, using a quality beard oil regularly can help prevent those issues from coming back.


The first thing you need to know about beard oil is that it's not actually oil—it's an emollient. The ingredients include lightweight oils such as jojoba and camellia, plus carrier oils like rosehip or grapeseed. These help hydrate your skin while also giving your beard a nice sheen. You can find products with a variety of different fragrances, from unscented to citrusy to woodsy; this will largely depend on personal preference.

A great beard oil consists of carrier oils that are rich in nutrients and essential oils (which are known for their antibacterial properties) that also add a nice scent to the mix. A good beard oil will also have vitamin E to protect hair from damage caused by free radicals like UV rays or pollution.

The easiest way to apply beard oil is directly from the bottle: just put a few drops in your palm, rub your hands together and massage into your beard. Don't forget to get at the skin underneath, as well as the edges.


As a result, people with beards tend to look more handsome and well-groomed than someone who hasn't put in that extra effort—and they feel better about themselves too! Beard oil can even make your face look slimmer by adding shine and lustre to your facial hair while taming flyaway hairs.
