When I was 18, I had had a few whiskers on my cheeks which I called beard irony. Well, my class fellows were literally slaying with thick and luxurious beards that made me pretty jealous.
So, I started looking for a way by which I can grow my beard faster without having to put hundreds of bucks on fire. Okay, fast forward, today I have a beard thicker than ever.
I learned that in order to grow a beard at 18, a balanced diet full of vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids is important. Working out and having a sleeping schedule also helps with reducing stress while growing a beard. In addition, a decent beard care routine can be very effective at times.
So, if I can do it at sweet 18, so can you. Are you ready to unravel some amazingly simple ways by which you can grow your beard faster than ever? Let’s get right into it.
Best Ways To Grow Beard Faster At 18 Years Old
If you follow the below-given tips, you will get a thick and flawless beard in no time so stay tuned:
Stress is the killer of your beauty; it causes acne, obesity, patchy beard, and whatnot. If you actually are wanting to have a fuller beard in your teenage, then stop stressing over your exams or relationship.
Take a deep breath and just let it go; take care of yourself because that is what matters in the end, you. Use different methods to calm your stress down.
Those methods can include working out, yoga, meditation, and even a good beauty sleep of 8-10 hours.
All these healthy things calm your nerves down and lower your stress levels because if your stress level is high, it is going to affect the testosterone hormone.
So, get some sleep and stay active.
Pop A Pill
If you eat a lot of fast food, it does not have everything you need for the overall health of your body and your beard, so an effective method is to take a pill.
Now don’t get me wrong, by pill, I mean multivitamins. Your body needs a lot of multivitamins to function properly and not only those but also different amino acids, protein, and omega-three fatty acids.
So, do you think you are eating enough of all these? I don’t think so, and that is where pills come to play.
Also, these multivitamins are going to increase your chance of growing a faster beard because they stimulate your testosterone hormone.
Clean eating has become the talk of the town for the past few years for all the right reasons because what you eat is what you are.
The vitamins, proteins, and omegas that can help boost your testosterone level are also found in different food items.
You can switch from your energy drinks to pomegranate juice which is also great for your testosterone level and can help you grow your beard faster.
Eat foods with vitamins A, C, and E because they are vital for the growth of your beard hair.
Yes, you read it right; there is a product in the market which I would call a holy grail that can miraculously increase your hair growth faster.
The name of this amazing product is Minoxidil, and it has been making rounds on the internet for its amazing effects on beard hair. You can apply this miraculous product to your hair, and it will certainly boost growth within a short period of time.
Minoxidil can potentially dry out your skin and cause breakouts because of dehydration of the skin. If the condition worsens, visit your dermatologist immediately.
Exfoliation is crucial not only for flawless skin but also for a flawless beard, and that is why consider adding a physical or chemical exfoliant to your routine.
Sometimes your beard hair cannot grow because of all the dirt or dead skin build-up, and it slows down the growth of your hair.
In this condition, use a scrub and exfoliate your skin gently once or twice weekly according to your skin type. While scrubbing or exfoliating, do not push too hard as it can further damage your skin instead of giving any benefit.
Care For Your Beard
If you have a patchy beard by the time you are 18, you are on the right track, and little attention and care of your beard can go a long way.
Have you planned a beard care routine for yourself? Why not? Just like your scalp needs nourishment and cares, your beard also needs it to grow faster.
Make sure to choose some products that are made ideally for beard and use them to get the best out of your beard.
Also, there are some really good beard brushes available in the market so that you can brush your patchy beard or whiskers with those brushes.
Massage It Up
Who does not love a good hair massage? But have you ever tried a beard massage? Trust me, it feels incredible. It’s not only relaxing but also gives you all the necessary stimulation you need for a fuller and thicker beard.
While massaging your beard, you are actually stimulating your hair follicles that are responsible for the growth of your beard, so, yeah, a beard massage a day keeps patchiness away.
You can massage your beard once every day for about a minute or two, and you will notice rapid growth in your beard hair. You can even apply the massage whilst you put in your daily beard oil. This way you will easier remember to do it.
If you are smoking at the age of 18, this can have a pretty negative impact on your testosterone hormone. Frequent smokers sometimes have difficulty growing beards, resulting in a patchy beard or no beard at all in a worst-case scenario.
So, if you really want to grow your beard faster, then you might consider quitting smoking because it can potentially be another reason for the slow growth of your beard hair.
Home Remedies For Beard Growth

Amla has amazing properties of increasing the growth of your facial hair and making them thick and luxurious. Apply Amla oil on your beard and leave for 20 minutes and then wash it out, apply it regularly for better results.
Eucalyptus is a common ingredient in beard oils and shampoos so if you want to get the most out of your eucalyptus hack, then add eucalyptus oil in olive oil and mix them.

Why Is Your Beard Still Not Growing?
If you have tried everything from the above-given tips and remedies and your beard growth is still showing no trace of improvement then this situation can be quite serious.
You might be having alopecia or you have a patchy bear because of genetic reasons and these tips cannot cure alopecia as it is a disease that needs professional care. Consult with your doctor for further guidance on the matter of alopecia and genetic issue and you might have the option of an implant if you really want to grow a beard desperately. There actually are methods to transplant hair onto your face!
I would suggest you wait for a while, at least till you are 25 or maybe even 30, and then go for any procedures as you might get a beard by the time you are of age.
