How to make facial hair grow quicker

With beards and moustaches continuing to be one of the strongest male grooming trends, we’ve put together a simple 6-step guide on how to make facial hair grow quicker. With an increasing number of male celebrities leading the way, facial hair has become a form of status to many men across the globe, but particularly in London. If ever you need some facial hair inspiration, simply walk through Bishopsgate, Westminster, Fitzrovia, Trafalgar Square and Shoreditch to see some of the modern and traditional styles favoured and modelled by passers-by.

How do you make your facial hair grow quicker?

Whatever your facial hair goal – If you want to grow a beard, a moustache or anything in-between, the following steps will help show you how to help make your facial hair grow quicker.

Step 1 – Vitamins, vitamins, vitamins!

Some of the vitamins and minerals in our everyday diets can have a massive impact on our ability to grow a beard. The key vitamins and minerals you need good amounts of are zinc, Vitamin D and magnesium. Interestingly, these vitamins and minerals also induce testosterone production. The foods to eat lots are salmon, nuts (almonds and cashews), eggs, broccoli, spinach and dairy products. According to studies, your facial hair growth can be equally impacted by macro-nutrients such as proteins, fats and carbs as well as micro-nutrients.

Step 2 – Sleep more!

Our bodies need sleep to rest rebuild and repair. The average male adult needs a minimum of six hours of sleep every night, giving our bodies time to rest, de-stress and rebuild.

Step 3 – Get exercising!

Every time we exercise, our testosterone levels instantly increase. Guidelines suggest we should raise our heart rates for at least an hour a day.

Step 4 – Patience is a virtue

Unfortunately, none of us can simply grow a magnificent beard overnight with a little magic and a click of our heels. Everyone’s hair grows at different speeds. Our Pall Mall Barbers recommend giving it at least 4-6 weeks if you’re growing your first beard. It’s also worth noting that your facial hair will grow thicker aged 30-40 years than in your 20s.

Step 5 – Quit the tobacco

Smoking, we know, promotes ageing, hair loss and premature balding. Smoking can curb hunger, therefore, the amount of vitamins and minerals you ingest.

Step 6 – Skincare

Use lukewarm water to wash your face, to avoid drying out your skin. Use a good moisturiser, preferably with Vitamin B5 and additional anti-ageing ingredients don’t hurt. We should all exfoliate at least once a week, in order to get rid of dirt, and dead skin cells and stimulate the hair follicles. Our Pre-Shave Scrub can be used as an exfoliator.

Following the above steps should help you grow facial hair quicker and ultimately make you a healthier individual. As a last resort, there is always a hair transplant, which takes hair follicles from the back of your head and transplants them onto your face, but this is (of course) a pricey process.
