How to Stimulate Facial Hair Growth

Updated February 21, 2017

However you decide to groom and grow your facial hair, the hair on a man's face can be a staple of his style, character and individual self. Some people have a difficult time growing hair on their face, while others have trouble keeping it off. Genetics can play a big factor in facial hair growth, but personal hygiene and nutrition can also play a role in stimulating the growth of facial hair.

Get plenty of rest. Sleep allows your body to repair, refresh and restore your body's cells and tissues and stimulate facial hair growth.

Use moisturisers and exfoliates like facial lotion and cremes after you shower or when you wake up. Attempt to keep your face clean and moist at all times. Exfoliating keeps your hair follicles and pores clear while removing dead skin cells. Moisturising keeps your pores open and skin healthy, which is vital for successful facial hair growth. When skin is dry, it results in ingrown hairs which stunt facial hair growth.

Consume foods or pills that contain certain vitamins and minerals beneficial for facial hair growth. B2 riboflavin and B3 niacin vitamins found in spinach, broccoli, chicken breast and milk are good for skin health and prevents stunted facial hair growth. Stress in your life can slow hair growth and make your facial hair brittle and weak. Get a healthy serving of potassium and magnesium to help nerve impulse transmission and help you cut down on stress and anxiety.
