Facts about growing facial hair
On average, a man's beard grows about half an inch per month. For some men the growth length per month will be less, but for some men it may be more; even more than an inch per month! The speed of your beard growth is determined by things like your genetic predisposition and your testosterone level and how sensitive your body is to the hormones that stimulate beard growth.
Take good care of your skin
Your hair will grow faster and healthier when the skin on which the hair grows is clean and properly nourished. It is therefore important to flush excess oil, dirt and grime from the pores by cleansing twice a day - once in the morning, once in the evening. You can follow this up with a gentle scrub to buff away any dead skin cells that can clog pores and cause acne. It is then wise to rub your skin with a nourishing and moisturizing cream or oil to hydrate and care for the skin. All of this should improve your complexion, but will also set the pace for healthier, faster hair growth.
Make sure you drink enough water
All body processes will run better and more efficiently when it is properly hydrated - all the way down to the cellular level. And that's what the hair also suffers from: the cells don't regenerate as quickly, nor do they get enough vitamins and nutrients because the body can't properly distribute these conditioning agents when it's dehydrated. So in addition to a slower beard, a dehydrated person also has a coarser, drier beard. So drink water!
There are a few B vitamins that can help your hair grow faster. The most commonly used vitamin is biotin (vitamin B7). A small daily supplement already allows you to benefit from the benefits. Ask your dermatologist about the best dosage for your body.
Drink a lot of water
Drink plenty of water when taking biotin. This prevents dry skin and pimples. Biotin strengthens the proteins in your hair, skin and nails. Biotin helps them all get stronger and grow faster. You will probably notice the use of biotone in your nails first.
What effect does the right diet have on the growth of a beard?
In addition to vitamin B supplements, you can promote hair growth with a diet anchored in protein, vegetables, whole grains, cheese, and yogurt. This ensures that you get all the right nutrients for strong, efficient hair growth. You'll want to focus on foods rich in vitamins A, B, C, and E in addition to protein. Here's a shortlist for your next grocery round: eggs, almonds, whole grains, cheese, yogurt, salmon, chicken, leafy greens, carrots, legumes, avocados, onions, sweet potatoes and tomatoes. Round out that list with other nutrient-dense foods, and you should be sending all the right vitamins and proteins into your bloodstream for maximum hair growth and strength.
