Gentlemen the month of No-Shave-November has dawned upon us, and its a bummer that a large number of men are increasingly ditching the process of growing a killer beard. The foremost reason being that not every guy is able to grow a healthy and lustrous beard, and thats okay!

No-Shave-November is celebrated world wide to raise awareness by growing out your hair which cancer patients tend to lose, and use the money you would ideally spend on grooming your beard to educate people about cancer, its prevention and cures. So before you shamelessly reach for your razor we got some tips on how you can naturally up your beard game!

5 tips to naturally grow your beard:

1. Let your skin breath-

Exfoliating your skin regularly is very important as it allows your pores to breath. The process of Exfoliation is cleansing the outer-most layer of the skin, by removing the dead skin. This promotes hair growth and gives you a much younger look as well.

2. Use a suitable face cleanser-

A face cleanser should be used at least twice a day typically once in the morning when you wake up, and at night before you go to bed. While choosing a face cleanser you must be careful as getting the wrong one might end up doing more damage then anything else. So take into consideration the type and texture of your skin, and its needs. Clean skin boosts hair growth!

3. Moisturise regularly-

Taking care of your skin is very important, and that’s why moisturising it regularly is imperative. Using a moisturiser which contains Eucalyptus just adds the cherry on the cake as it’s properties accelerate hair growth.

4. Eat, Sleep & Play well-

The most important thing to ensure good hair growth is your lifestyle. You need to exercise adequately, have a healthy diet and also rest well. Exercising regularly is a must as it increases your testosterone levels which supports hair growth. A good diet has to be maintained as the right amount of protein and vitamins such as A, B, C and E are vital for healthy hair growth. Studies suggest that an average adult requires at least 6 hours of sleep every night as this relaxes your mind and body giving it time to repair and rebuild. This will help you achieve the beard you desire.

5. Be patient-

The age old myth that shaving regularly promotes hair growth is FALSE! Being patient and allowing your beard to grow out, which can take around 4 to 5 weeks is very important. Regular shaving does not help your hair grow faster, but actually prevents it from taking its natural shape, inhibiting hair growth.

I hope these tips help you guys grow a nice thick lustrous beard. So get into the No-Shave-November spirit, and be a part of this nobel celebration!
