CAN EVERY MAN GROW A BEARD IF HE CHOOSES TO DO SO?


by Fran O'Reilly November 04, 2016

When it comes to growing out a beard for the first time some men are blessed with the perfect balance of testosterone to flourish a marvelous beard-mane in next to no time, whereas many others tend to struggle to muster anything more than a patchy stubbly face. But why is growing out a beard such an impossible task for some and a real breeze for others?

There are various reasons why some men can't grow a substantial amount of facial hair, although this is mostly genetics. Whilst the majority of men have the same level of testosterone, it's men who are more sensitive to it that are most likely to grow a fuller, thicker beard. It's a chemical called dihydrotestosterone that formulates from testosterone that stimulates male hair growth and development when males meet sexual maturity. Granted you have a healthy natural balance, your body and face will steadily produce then grow hair follicles, which in turn has the potential to form a rather epic facial forest upon your face.

But what happens if you're one of the unfortunate ones who struggle to grow out a beard? Don't throw in the towel just yet, as there are a few things you can do to help fix a patchy beard. Firstly, your beards well being relies heavily on the naturally sourced vitamins within your diet. Choosing to eat certain foods that are rich in Vitamin A, B, C and E will help increase the speed of which your facial hair grows.

Keeping your face behind the beard clean with also encourage hair growth and lower the risk of ingrown hairs from forming. It is also believed that smoking can have negative side effects when it comes to hair growth. As nicotine hinders your body's natural ability to absorb much needed nutrients that may encourage hair growth.

Keep well hydrated by drinking plenty of water, doing so will help keep your skin healthy giving your beard optimal conditions to continue to grow well. Try and increase the amount of protein in your day-to-day diet. Protein can be naturally sourced in fish, meat, eggs and nuts. Leading a healthy lifestyle may also help with your beards success, although I appreciate this may prove easier said than done for some.

Another sound piece of advice is remain patient! It might seem like one of the most obvious pointers to offer, but given a little time and TLC most beards begin to thicken and fill out over time. So, sitting tight and weathering the storm might be all that is needed for your patchy stubble to evolve into a marvel of a beard for all to envy.
