HOW TO GROW A BEARD

At BRISK Grooming, we believe in a no compromise, knockout beard, and a zero-fuss grooming regime. That’s why we’ve teamed up with celebrity grooming expert Charley McEwen who has worked with some of the best beards in the business – such as Tom Hardy and Nicholas Hoult – to bring you top tips on how to grow a killer beard.

Whether you’re starting from scratch, looking to tackle a patchy beard or looking for a little more length, give Mother Nature a helping hand with some of our top tips.

HOW TO GROW A BEARD

Ready, steady, GROW!

Growing a killer beard may feel like an epic journey, so Charley recommends getting off to a smooth start:

“A well exfoliated and moisturised complexion is key for growing a beard from scratch! Give the skin around your lower face and jawline a good scrub with an exfoliator twice a week to encourage good blood circulation, and ensure the skin is well hydrated by using a moisturiser daily.”

Try BRISK Moisturiser with Malt Extract. An everyday essential, BRISK Moisturiser provides 24-hour moisturisation in a fast absorbing and caring formula, leaving skin moisturised all day. With a combination of key ingredients, including malt extract, known for its moisturising qualities, it leaves skin feeling noticeably smooth and revitalised.

Ready, steady, GROW!

Boost beard growth

Give Mother Nature some extra support by looking for products proven to support beard growth, explains Charley:

“If you want to help support beard growth, I recommend using the Intense Beard & Face Wash and Intense Beard Oil together twice daily for a stronger, fuller-looking beard. The formulations are rich in hard working Castor Oil and Hemp, and when used together, they help to support beard growth.

It’s really important to work them into the skin by massaging the product in an upward motion, so it gets far down into the root follicle. This will mean you will get the most out of each product!”

Try the innovative BRISK Intense range, with advanced new formulations rich in hard-working ingredients that help support beard growth, including Castor Oil and Hemp. The Intense Beard & Face Wash and Intense Beard Oil duo work together for a killer, fuller-looking beard.

Tackling a patchy beard

There’s nothing wrong with a patchy beard but if you’re looking for a fuller, thicker face of fuzz then it’s time to take matters into your own hands:

“Exfoliation is key when helping tackle a patchy beard! Giving your facial skin a good exfoliate twice weekly helps to stimulate the blood flow and encourage collagen production,” says Charley.

He also recommends keeping it trim: “I would also recommend trimming the beard every two weeks to keep its shape – which avoids beards looking straggly and sparse!”

Try using the BRISK Beard & Face Wash in Citrus with a wash mitt for added exfoliating benefits. Our specially formulated beard and face wash combines natural ingredients including grapefruit and lemon oils to cleanse and nourish your beard leaving it feeling fresh, soft and manageable with a zesty citrus scent.

Keep it looking healthy

To maintain a healthy-looking beard, don’t neglect what lies beneath! Charley tells us that looking after your skin is key to growing a great-looking beard:

“Take care of the skin underneath and your beard will thank you! Keeping your facial skin healthy will encourage a healthy, soft beard. Using a beard oil daily, such as BRISK Beard Oil, helps to keep the skin underneath well hydrated.”

Try BRISK Cedarwood Beard Oil. It’s made with 100% natural oils and vitamin E and combines nourishing almond, avocado, argan and jojoba oils in a quick absorbing formula.

BRISK Grooming’s skincare and beard solutions are available from Boots, Morrisons and Waitrose.
