A beard can change the face of a man almost entirely. A well groomed beard can lift a look, however, a rough and patchy one can seem a little off.

Think of celebrities such as Ranveer Singh, Hamza Ali Abbasi and Riz Ahmed looking sharp in their well-maintained facial hair making everyone swoon a little harder.

As compiled by PinkVilla, here are some tips and tricks on how to achieve that desired five-o-clock shadow.

Coconut oil is essential to get a good stretch of beard. All you have to do is combine coconut oil with a little rosemary oil. Use a cotton ball and apply the mixture on the face. Once applied evenly, let it sit on the face for about 15 minutes and wash away with cool water. For best results, continue this process two to three times a week.

Lemon and cinnamon

Another great resort for a healthy beard is taking one teaspoon of grounded cinnamon or dalchini. Mix with about two teaspoons of lemon juice and apply this mixture all over the face. Leave it on for 20 minutes and wash away with cold water. Repeat twice a week.

One key step easily skipped yet vital. Oil and dead skin does not let facial hair grow faster, hence make sure to wash face at least two to three times a day. Keeping moisturised with a daily product is also essential.

Eating healthy

A healthy diet is essential for healthy body and skin.  Saturated fats such as eggs and animal fat are vital for shiny beard growth, as well as healthy sources of protein like fish and beans. Ensure a proper and balanced intake of vitamin A, C and E intake.  This helps in maintaining the follicles and sebum.
