Discover the benefits of using Beard Oil and Balm

Beard oils and balms provide many benefits for your skin and beard

What is beard oil?

Beard oil is an essential component to achieving a healthy, soft, and itch-free beard that grows to its full potential. Incorporating beard oil into your daily routine provides a range of benefits to both your beard and skin.

By acting as a conditioner, beard oil moisturises and softens the beard hair while also effectively hydrating the skin beneath the beard. At Hinterlands, we understand the benefits of using all-natural ingredients, and our beard oils are made up of 100% natural carrier and essential oils.

Our carrier oils are carefully sourced and tested to provide the best benefits to your beard hair and skin. We use a blend of three carrier oils that work together to ensure your beard is well-nourished and well-moisturised. Our essential oils are also all-natural, providing a range of benefits for your beard and skin.

Unlike other beard oils that use artificial fragrances, our products contain only natural scents that are beneficial to your beard and skin. By using Hinterlands beard oil, you can be confident that you're providing your beard with the best possible care.

What is beard balm?

To keep your beard looking and feeling its best, beard balm is a must-have product in your grooming routine. It has two main benefits that are essential to maintaining healthy facial hair. Firstly, beard balm conditions your beard, helping to hydrate and soften it. Secondly, it helps to control and style your beard, giving you the freedom to shape it however you like.

At Hinterlands, our beard balms are carefully crafted with natural ingredients to provide the best possible care for your beard. One of the main ingredients in our beard balms is shea butter, which acts as a great conditioner for your facial hair and the skin underneath. The other essential ingredient is beeswax, which provides a strong natural hold, allowing you to style your beard and moustache with ease.

Our beard balms also contain the same all-natural carrier and essential oils found in our beard oils, providing an extra layer of nourishment and hydration for your skin and beard. With Hinterlands beard balm, you can be confident that your beard is getting the best care possible.

The benefits of using both Beard Oil and Balm together.

Using both beard oil and balm together can offer the best all-round benefits for your beard. Although they serve different purposes, they can complement each other to provide the ultimate beard care routine.

Beard oil is a light leave-in conditioner and moisturiser for both your beard and skin. Its nourishing properties can help promote beard strength and growth. Using beard oil daily as part of your morning and evening routine can have a huge positive impact on your beard. It can also prevent dry skin and itchiness, which are the biggest issues preventing most people from growing a beard.

On the other hand, beard balm contains added ingredients such as shea butter and beeswax. Shea butter provides an extra boost in the conditioning department, while beeswax provides a natural hold to help you style your beard and tame flyaway hairs.

By using both beard oil and balm together, you can enjoy the benefits of both products and achieve a healthy, soft, and well-styled beard.

The many benefits of beard oil and balms

A few drops can make a big difference

No more itchy beard

Many give up when the dreaded beard itch begins early on. This is because your skin is drying out and the hairs are more coarse. Using beard oil will make this problem go away.

No more patchy beard

Many give up growing a beard because they think it is patchy. However, by being able to commit properly thanks to beard oil it can eventually fill out all over as you can commit more time to its growth.

No more beardruff

The skin beneath your beard is far more sensitive and prone to dandruff than the skin beneath your hair. This is why it’s vital you provide your skin with moisturisation when growing a beard.

No more unruly beards

Beards can get out of control, fast! A good routine using beard oil and a balm can go a long way towards taming that beard. Balm also helps to style and hold your beard in place.

Nourished and healthy skin

Beard oil doesn’t interfere with sebum production and doesn’t clog pores, instead it helps cleanse and nourish skin prone to breakouts. A few drops go a long way to keeping skin hydrated.

It’s a natural cologne

Hinterlands beard oils and balms use natural essential oils because of how much they benefit your skin, but they are also full of lovely natural aromas that act as a natural cologne.

How to use Beard Oil for maximum benefits.

Using beard oil can have a huge positive impact on the health and appearance of your beard. A 30ml bottle can last around 3-6 months, making it a cost-effective investment in your beard's wellbeing.

To get the most out of your beard oil, we recommend using it at least once every day as part of your routine. It's best to apply the oil when your beard is damp, but mostly dry, after your morning shower. Simply rub a few drops into your palms and massage it into your beard, making sure to work it down to the skin beneath. For longer beards, it's recommended to use a brush or comb to distribute the oil evenly.

Using beard oil daily can help stop any itchiness and beardruff, as well as soften the hair itself, making it less irritating to you and your loved ones. For best results, we also recommend using the oil before bed initially to help speed up its benefits to your skin. So why wait? Start incorporating beard oil into your daily routine and experience the difference it can make for yourself!

How to apply beard balm for the best results.

When it comes to using beard balm, the application process can make all the difference in achieving the best results. Depending on the length of your beard, scoop out the amount of balm needed and rub it into your palms until the product feels warm and melted.

Next, apply the balm evenly through your beard and style it into your desired shape. Using a beard comb can also help ensure that your beard looks its best. By following these simple steps, you can take full advantage of the benefits of beard balm and keep your beard looking and feeling healthy and well-groomed.
