Beard oil has been around for centuries, but it's still a relatively new product for modern men. This means that there are lots of questions about how and when to use beard oil. Fortunately, beard oil is extremely easy to apply and will last throughout the day if you take the right steps. In this article, we'll walk through everything you need to know about applying beard oil: from cleaning your face before applying the product to getting long-lasting results without making your beard feel greasy or clumpy.
Clean your beard first. Otherwise, the oil won't be able to penetrate the beard properly.
A clean beard is essential for a healthy beard, so it's important to make sure that your facial hair is free of dirt and oil before applying any product. If you aren't using shampoo or conditioner specifically made for beards, simply use your regular shampoo and follow the instructions on their packaging.
If you're using beard oil with essential oils in it, make sure that they are safe on your skin. Some people are allergic to certain types of oils, so check the ingredients list before buying anything new!
After cleaning your face, dry it with a clean towel. Do not rub your towel on your beard as it might result in damage to the hair and follicles.

Wait 5-10 minutes before applying the oil
You need to wait for the oil to absorb into your beard and skin. The absorption process takes about five minutes, so you can apply it as soon as you step out of the shower or after applying lotion. If you apply the oil while still in the shower, it'll be less likely that it will drip down your chest, but waiting a few minutes after your shower can help it absorb more effectively.
You should also make sure that you don't use too much when applying beard oil; just put one or two drops on both hands and rub them together before massaging into your beard. The goal is to use enough beard oil so that all of your hair feels smooth and soft rather than greasy or oily-feeling.
It's important to apply beard oil when your beard is clean and still damp; I also recommend being very careful around the delicate area near the mouth.
Beard oil works best when applied while your beard is still damp, but it can also be used after you've toweled off. If you choose to apply the oil before bed and then go to sleep, make sure that you sleep on your back. This will prevent your pillow from absorbing too much of the product's natural oils, which would waste some of its hydrating properties.
The most important thing is to ensure that all areas of skin are covered without any missing spots. This way, when the moisture evaporates off your face during the day (or night), it will do so evenly and prevent any irritation or flaking from occurring in those areas that didn't receive enough attention from the beard oil.
