Is Beard Oil Really Necessary?

So, you’ve managed to muscle your way through No-Shave November and Movember, and now your manly mustache has achieved peak Tom Selleck status. Your beard has gone full ZZ Top. Hold up a minute, though. Unless you’re taking advantage of beard oil, you’re not reaching your beard’s full potential.  

Is beard oil necessary? In a word: yes.

Let’s examine the most important reasons that beard oil is necessary for the love and care of your face fuzz.

Ban the Itch

It’s the dead of winter, and while that little bit of fur is keeping your face nice and toasty, it’s also stirring up quite the itch. It’s annoying, to say the least.

If you don’t take care of beard itch before too long, it graduates into full-fledged “beard-druff”—the unfortunate close cousin of dandruff. Your once glorious mane will become scourged by tiny, white flakes. People will ask you if it’s snowing out… Unless you dab a little beard oil in your palms, rub them together, and apply generously.

In one fell swoop, you can ban the dreaded beard itch AND prevent the onset of pesky beard-druff.

Save Your Skin

With many beard oils now adding in bonus ingredients like Vitamin E, your beard isn’t the only feature being taken care of when you douse yourself in essential oils.

Not only do these little extras pamper and nourish your beard, they also soak all the way down to your face. Daily application of beard oil can therefore help boost the moisture and elasticity of your skin—which means even after No-Shave November ends, you’ll be looking (and feeling) as fresh as ever.

Who doesn’t want a touchably soft face?

Condition, Condition, Condition

You wouldn’t drive your car without replacing the oil every few thousand miles, right? The same principle applies to your beard.

Whether you’re test-driving a Fu Manchu for the month of November or you’re a lifelong facial hair enthusiast, it’s never too early or too late to start taking care of your beard or mustache. All it takes is a little TLC and some fine tuning.

And unlike most things in life, a little bit of beard oil goes a long way.

To put it simply, beard oil is just another necessary tool for your grooming kit. It’s not a vanity thing; it’s as useful and multipurpose as that combo screwdriver-bottle-opener you keep handy at all times.
