While growing a beard, every man goes through the itchy beard phase.

This unfortunate phase of beard growing is downright uncomfortable and awful.

Even worse, this phase can leave you with dry skin, rashes, and scratch marks on your soft, delicate facial skin.

If you're a man who is contemplating growing a beard or who is in the midst of this beard-growing phase, not to worry.

As beard experts, we’re here to help you navigate through this itchy, uncomfortable time during your beard-growing journey.

Keep reading to discover our expert tips on getting through the itchy beard phase.

Tip #1 - Massage your beard - don’t scratch!

We get it.

The need to scratch your growing beard is just as tempting as…

  • Making daily 2 a.m. Taco Bell runs.
  • Setting things on fire just for fun.
  • Dressing as Batman to go to work.

But please, if there’s one temptation you can avoid, let it be the temptation of scratching your facial hair.

Scratching your beard may feel good at first, but it can quickly cause your face to become scarred with scratches. Not to mention, constant scratching can cause an outbreak of bumpy rashes and inflamed skin.

Instead of scratching, try massaging the skin where your facial hair is growing.

Doing so will help relieve the itch, without the awful side effects of nails digging into your skin.

Tip #2 - Use beard oil to keep your beard hair as soft as possible.

Beard Oil

As beard hair grows, it breaks through your facial skin like little tiny daggers.

No wonder it’s an uncomfortable feeling!

For this reason, the best way to help soothe the itch and discomfort caused by a growing beard is to disarm the tiny daggers with the use of beard oil.

Beard oil is made from natural oils. These oils are wonderful for...

  • Softening facial skin, which makes it easier for hair to grow.
  • Keeping beard hair pliable, which makes it less irritating when hair breaks through the skin.
  • Protecting the skin from rashes as the oil contains natural antibacterial and antifungal properties.

At Lucky Grooming, our beard oil is made with 100% safe and natural ingredients.

Tip #3- Soak your facial hair in coconut oil to nourish and repair irritated skin.

Believe it or not, coconuts are useful for more than just mixing a steller pina colada.

That’s right...the oil that is pulled from the meat of a coconut is also often used in skin and hair care products.

The reason: coconut oil is a great natural moisturizer and can be used as a natural antibacterial or antifungal agent.

For this reason, soaking your facial hair in coconut oil is a great way to relieve the itch that comes along with growing facial hair.

Here’s all you need to do…

  1. Grab a container of organic coconut oil from your local grocery store. 
  2. Use your finger to scoop out a pea-sized amount of oil. 
  3. Rub it between your fingers to melt the oil. 
  4. Massage it into your beard. If you don’t feel you have enough oil to massage into your skin and hair, repeat the process until you have enough. 
  5. Let your skin and facial hair absorb the oil. There’s no need to rinse the oil out, unless you used too much and your beard is greasy. 

Tip #4 - Brush your beard with the grain.

brush with the grain

Brushing your beard hair is important--even if you only have a little facial hair.

As you brush, be sure to brush with the grain of your beard hair. This will help you avoid irritating the hair follicles.

Daily brushing along the grain of your beard helps reduce irritation while “training” your beard hair to grow in the right direction.

Best of all, the feeling of a beard brush on your face is a great way to relieve your itches without having to claw your skin with fingernails.

Tip #5 - Avoid using shampoos or soaps on your face.

A lot of shampoos and soaps are designed to remove oil from skin and hair, which is a big problem for beard growers.

When the oils are removed, skin can easily become dry and irritated. And, when dry, irritated skin is aggravated by growing facial hair, this becomes a very uncomfortable situation.

In the beginning stages of growing a beard, we recommend that you avoid using soaps and shampoos on your face.

At this point, your facial hair isn’t very long, so there’s really no need to scrub it clean.

Rinsing your facial hair with water is more than enough!

We wish you the best as you continue your quest to grow the world’s most majestic beard.

And, while you’re on this journey, we want you to know that Lucky Grooming will be here to provide you with the products necessary for beard-growing perfection.
