Beard Oil is not only beneficial to your facial hair but most importantly to the skin underneath. Maintaining hydrated and smooth skin under a beard is just as important as keeping that facial hair shiny and under control. By keeping the skin healthy, that dreaded beard itch and ‘beardruff’ will be a thing of the past.
With that in mind, we’ve teamed up with Freshen Up With Guy’s (who’ve kindly sponsored this post with a selection of their own beard oils) to answer some common beard oil questions…
Is it necessary to use beard oil?
Yes…beardy! It’s likely you don’t need to apply beard oil every day. You can start by applying it every other day and adjust as needed.

Does beard oil make a difference?
Beard oil, which can also be called beard balm, moisturizes two things: facial hair and the skin underneath it.
