New Year, New Beard: 5 Great Tips For Letting it Grow in 2021

Growing a truly glorious beard is a serious undertaking, but the start of the New Year can serve as the perfect time to get serious about your facial hair. 

The New Year is a time for reflection, lifestyle changes, and new beginnings, so why should your wonderous whiskers be left out? Courtesy of Fresh Beards, here are five simple tips for curating an impressive beard in 2021.


Follow the Four Week Rule 

First things first, a truly magnificent beard can never truly be achieved without giving it the time that it needs to develop. Just like a toddler taking their first wobbly little steps, a brand new beard needs to learn to crawl, before it can walk, and walk before it can run.

The first step in growing a great beard is by letting it grow unperturbed for at least four weeks. It’s at this important benchmark that most beards will finally start to connect and fill out in all the proper places.

At four weeks, you can really begin to assess exactly how you should proceed. If your whiskers have achieved a length and thickness that seems like s good starting point, this is when you can start shaping and trimming to your heart’s desire.


Take Care of Your Skin 

Once you’ve achieved a good four-week base, it’s time to start doubling down on your skin care routine. Healthy skin is the very foundation of a healthy, thick beard. That’s why you’re going to need proper moisturizer, exfoliators, and face wash. 

Wondering about what products you should use for this daunting task? Well you’re in luck! Fresh Beards has exactly what you need! Click here to check out our awesome selection of Beard Oils and Beard Butters which are specifically formulated to keep your skin as healthy as possible as you continue to etch your legacy in the annals of legendary beard history.

The fact is, a great skin care routine can lead to increased beard growth and thickness, while simultaneously eliminating the itchiness, dryness, and irritation that can come with the territory. 


Start Exercising More

Yes, really. One of the best things you can do to improve your beard-growing game is exercising on a regular basis. Cardio workouts, brisk walking, running, cycling, and dance are all great ways that you can start getting more active.

Not only does a frequent exercise routine have the benefit of naturally raising your testosterone levels, but it can also help you lose excessive weight, giving your face a more natural and dominant shape for you to decorate with a killer beard.

When mixing exercise into your daily routine, be careful not to do too much too soon. If you aren;t used to vigorous exercise, be sure to ease into it slowly and build onto it gradually as the year rolls on.


Wash Your Beard Thoroughly

Just like the hair on your head benefits from regular washing from high-quality shampoos and conditioners, so too does facial hair!

While proper face washing and simple shampoos and conditioners can still be effective on some level, true pros should begin using washing supplies that are designed specifically to benefit your facial hair specifically.

At Fresh Beards, we offer an incredible selection of carefully formulated Beard Washes that are guaranteed to remove dirt, oils, grit, and debris that may have accumulated throughout your busy day. In addition, our beard wash can accomplish this feat without sacrificing your beard’s natural moisture and hydration.

Not only does proper beard washing make your beard feel smoother and silkier, but it also strengthens your man mane to keep it looking full, thich, and healthy. You can thank us later!


Keep It Properly Styled

No New Year’s beard can be considered a success until it has achieved its final form: the proper style and look that you’ve been yearning for. Depending on your personal style and growth rate, you should expect to tend to your beard about twice a week, but be sure to adjust as needed.

In order to accomplish this, you’re going to need a reliable set of tools and products that can assist you in helping your beard look its best. At Fresh Beards, we offer a great selection of facial hair combs and brushes that can be used to help you achieve your ideal look. These tools have been man-tested and beard-approved to guarantee maximum satisfaction.

In addition, we also offer a variety of styling products like Beard Balm and Mustache Wax that can assist you in hand-shaping your facial hair to the exact degree that you see fit. These products are specially formulated and offered in a variety of scents in an effort to give you absolute freedom and control over your own personal style.

At Fresh Beards, we’ve been in the business of beard care for a long time. For any additional advice or specific questions regarding our products, feel free to contact us directly.
