* Struggling with patchy scruff? Here’s the fix
* Microneedling naturally brings more nutrients and hormones to your skin
* These are products you’ll need for optimum results
If your no-shave November beard turned out be more of a November scruff, we have a solution: microneedling.
As beards have become more popular, microneedling has emerged as one of the easiest, most effective ways to stimulate facial hair growth. It works by pricking your face with hundreds of tiny needles (don’t worry, it’s painless), drawing nutrients and hormone-rich blood to the face. It might sound a little wacky, but trust us: it works.
Plus, microneedling has other benefits besides thicker beard growth. The increased circulation in the face reduces scar tissue and wrinkles as well. In short, you’ll get a thicker, faster-growing beard on top of healthier skin.
(Tip: for the best results, we suggest you supplement microneedling with a good beard wash and hair-growth vitamins like the ones below.)
1. Derma Roller Needling Kit
This needling kit features a 0.25mm needle size that’s ideal for beginner to intermediate use. To use it, sterilize the roller head in alcohol, wash your face, and then gently roll the tool across your face. After, help kick-start the repair process with your go-to moisturizer or serum.
2. Beard Shampoo & Conditioner
There are quite a few beard washes, but this is one of our favorites. It comes very highly rated because it uses argan oil, manuka and tea tree oil to make your beard look amazing and feel luscious.
3. Beard Grow XL
Beard Grow XL is pricey, but it’s also probably the best beard growth vitamin around. It has almost 3,000 reviews and 4.5 stars, thanks to fast-acting results with any and all facial hair.
