If you’re not convinced that you need to add beard oil to your daily routine, here are three tips from the celebrity groomer that’ll make you a believer.
Beard oil moisturizes facial hair and the skin beneath.
Beard oil is hydrating to the skin and helps soften and tame beard hair, which means it also does double-duty as a styling agent. According to Schneidman, the ideal beard should look shiny and groomed — not dusty, flaky and shaggy.
The best time to apply beard oil is right after washing your face.
We recommend putting on beard oil first thing in the morning after showering or cleansing. “This way, your hair follicles and pores are open and can easily absorb the oil,” he adds. “Caring for skin, particularly cleansing and moisturization, is crucial, especially if you live in a cold or dry climate. We tend to think ‘more is better,’ but just a few drops of most things is plenty.”
Beard oil keeps facial hair flake-free and smelling fresh.
Thanks to moisturizing oils, a little beard oil is just enough to tame those flyaway hairs and eliminate flakes (a.k.a. beard-druff).

You have everything from handcut comb to electric razors to style the shape of your beard, but if you stick to these tools, you’re missing one crucial part: the body of the beard itself. Beard oil is the final and crowning element of the beardsman’s routine.
This oil keeps your facial hair healthy as it grows, but it also hydrates your skin, which doesn’t get a lot of attention under a beard. This helps to prevent beard flakes, which is what we call dandruff for your beard, and which we’d all like to avoid at all costs.
Our beard oil is a great grooming tool. The hydrating ingredients help to keep coarse hair neat and smooth, making your beard touchable, soft, and tangle-free.
To use beard oil, pour a dime-sized amount into one palm, then distribute over the fingers of both hands. Then apply the oil directly the skin under your beard, to start the hydrating process at the source, and work the remaining oil through the rest of your beard and mustache. This is also a good time to give the beard a bit of a comb. How often you use beard oil might depend on the dryness of the climate and water hardness, but it could be from daily to every three days.
