3 Ways to Increase Your Chance to Get a Beard at 15
Again, if your body and hormone don’t have the ability to grow a beard at 15 then whatever you do, it won’t be effective. But you can try to increase your chance by following the rules.
1. Eat right
If you want to grow a beard at 15, you need to start thinking about it much earlier: at 14 or even as early as 13. You need to start eating right. Forget about indulging on fast food and make sure to include healthy fruits and veggies into your diet.
When you eat right, your body functions properly and nothing delays the natural beard growth. Bad eating habits can lead to hormonal imbalances which can stop the beard from growing at the right time. It is also important to drink enough water. You should drink at least half a gallon (about 2 liters) of water daily.
If you are ready to start eating right to help your beard grow, pay close attention to the products you consume. Your food should be filled with proteins. This means you have to eat a lot of eggs, milk and meat. The reason is that the hair is mostly made up of a protein called keratin.
That’s why increasing the a amount of protein in your body can help you grow a healthy beard. Besides protein, you will need to get enough vitamins. Experts say that your ration should include the following vitamins: A, B3, B5, B6,B12,C, E,D, biotin. You should also get enough iron, which is very important for normal hair growth.
Regular exercising is imperative for effective hair growth since it allows to increase the testosterone levels in your body. Testosterone is the hormone that, besides other things, is responsible for facial hair growth. Exercise is also good for your overall health. Only a healthy body can start growing a beard at an early age.
3. Use remedies
There are different remedies available for facial hair growth stimulation. Some of them are burdock oil extract and castor oil. You have to heat up the oil a little and rub it on the face in the area where the beard is expected to grow. You should leave it on for several hours and then wash it off. The oil should be used at least 5 times a week.
There are also such medications as Rogaine or other minoxidil containing remedies. However, the effect of such medications hasn’t be studied on children. That’s why using them might not be a good idea. Also, in order to get an effect from this medication, it should be used on a regular basis, which can turn out to be rather costly
It’s possible to grow a beard at 15 only if you use a responsible approach. The earlier you start eating healthy and exercising, the more chances you have to grow a beard at a young age.
