Beard care is an important part of having a beard. Contrary to popular belief, you can’t just grow your beard out and let it be. You need to use beard products to ensure that your beard is healthy. While you can use any other type of product, beard oil is a great place

Now, we understand that you may not know how to use these products properly. This is why we thought it would be useful to prepare a short guide on how to use beard oil. If this is something that you want to know more about, read on as we discuss everything you need to know about using beard oil.

How Much Beard Oil Should You Use?

While this may seem simple, you’d be surprised at how many people actually get this part wrong. Now, there’s no set amount of beard oil that you should be using. It will all depend on the length of your beard. For men with long beards, you typically will need to use more oil so that it permeates all the way to your skin. A good rule of thumb would be to start with around 3-5 drops of beard oil and add more if you think it isn’t enough. Be wary of using too much oil, as it can make your beard look messy.

How Long Do You Leave Beard Oil In?

This is kind of a trick question. You don’t take beard oil out once you’ve applied it. You typically leave it in until it wears off. The length of time that the oil stays in your beard will vary depending on your environment, the length of your beard, and the amount of oil you use. The best beard oils usually last a full day before they begin to wear off.

What’s the Best Way to Apply Beard Oil?

When it comes to applying beard oil, it’s best not to overthink things. The first thing you have to do is to pat your beard dry with a soft clean cloth. Make sure that your beard isn’t wet as the oil won’t adhere to your beard hair if it is wet. From there just pour a few drops of beard oil into your palm and lightly rub it into your beard. You’ll want to be extra thorough when doing this to ensure that it gets all the way down to the skin underneath.

When Should You Use Beard Oil?

Technically, there is no best time to use beard oil. However, it might be wise to apply it during the day so you’ll have a great looking beard throughout the day. We understand that this might be a little tedious and there may be days that you forget. To avoid this from happening, we suggest that you incorporate it into your morning routine. We suggest applying the beard oil every day after you shower and you should. Do this enough times and you should form pretty good beard care habits.


We hope this article proves to be useful when it comes to helping you take better care of your beard. Beard oil can be a great product that moisturizes your beard and skin. When used correctly, it can yield a slew of different benefits that will improve your overall beard and skin health.
