Fall is probably one of the best seasons of the year as it’s not too cold or not too hot just yet. The weather is basically perfect for beard growing. This is also one of the reasons why the no-shave November movement is held during this time of the year. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a newbie to growing facial hair, here are some beard growth tips you should follow so you can participate in no-shave November.

Proper Cleaning and Washing

When trying to grow a beard, proper care is essential from start to finish. A beard is also subject to pretty much the same problem that your hair creates, so you better have your own beard and skin care routine for it, which includes proper cleaning and washing. For those who like a shorter beard, a soap with a mild moisturizer is your best bet when washing. 

If you have a longer beard, then it needs to be treated like long hair. Don’t ever use the type of soap you use on your beard when washing your beard, as it removes all the essential oils your beard needs to grow. It’s better to use a mild beard shampoo that won’t dry out the skin on your beard. Using a leave-in conditioner or specialized beard oils is also great after washing to keep your beard soft and moist.

Healthy Diet and Exercise

Believe it or not, but the type of food you’re eating and your lifestyle can influence the growth of your beard. This is because certain foods affect just how much testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) your body can produce. Those two hormones are responsible for the healthy growth of your beard. Some guys have high levels of it, while some don’t. You can, however, help your body produce more of it by exercising and eating a well-balanced diet packed with Vitamin A, protein, calcium, magnesium, and other nutrients. Foods like sweet potatoes, spinach, and eggs are some of the best choices.

Groom Your Beard Regularly

Growing a beard requires some attention to it if you want it to grow long and healthy. This means that regular grooming, aside from washing, is a requirement. Depending on how complex of a beard you’re looking to grow, maintenance work will vary. Generally, however, here’s what you need to do to groom your beard:

  • Keep it clean at all times. Depending on how fast your beard grows, it’s best to clean-shave your neck and upper cheeks every two to three days.
  • Trimming your facial hair once a week is also an excellent grooming tip for shorter beards. This will keep the ends of the hair healthy and help your beard look a lot fuller and healthier. If you’re growing a longer beard, trimming every few weeks is recommended.


Growing and maintaining a beard can be tough if you’re not used to it. However, like any other part of our body, your beard needs some TLC for it to grow healthy and long. Following these three tips is important if you want to grow a majestic-looking beard that you’ll be proud to wear wherever you go.
