Even some studies proved that women (most of them) are attracted towards men who sport a cool beard style and a matching mustache, rather than those with a clean baby face.

This may be the reason why a lot of teenagers want to grow a mustache at a very tender age, say 12, 13, 14 or 15.

Since the growth of facial hair (includes mustache and beard) depends on the genetics, the boys who enter their teenage usually start growing the hair automatically.

However, the ratio at which the hair grows during the teenage is very less.

But, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. In this article, let us see different working tips to grow a mustache faster naturally.

Wash your face regularly (twice a day) with a mild cleanser, along with warm water as it helps in opening the pores of the skin. Keeping your face clean will improve your chances of growing facial hair faster.

You can also use these beard soaps for cleaning your face.

2.Exfoliate Dead Skin Cells

The dead skin cells are the actual blockers of the hair growth and so it is advised to use an exfoliating facial scrub designed for men once or twice a week at least. This will remove any dead skin cells.

Also, ensure that the scrub is suitable for your skin type (oily, dry, sensitive etc…)

Try to use a moisturizing cream that contains eucalyptus as one of the ingredients.

The benefit of using such product is that it helps in removing any dry patches on your skin and allows the facial hair to grow quickly. Once the skin becomes soft, your mustache or beard grows faster than normal.

4.Get a Multivitamin Supplement

The deficiency of vitamins can also hinder your chances of growing a mustache or even your hair and beard for that matter.

So, it is always suggested to take sufficient vitamins that promote hair growth.

Vit A, B1, B6 and B12 are the vitamins responsible for hair growth. These vitamins does help speed up the rate at which your mustache or beard appears.

5.Eat Protein Rich Foods

Our hair is made from Keratin, which is synthesized from proteins and hence adding some proteins in your diet helps nourish your hair roots for faster growth of beard or mustache.

Generally, protein is found in meat, eggs and nuts. Vegetarians can rely on Lentils, Beans etc…

So, don’t neglect the proteins in your routine and choose the foods accordingly.

There are a few things which you should remember while growing the facial hair during your teenage or at any point of time.

  1. Don’t believe in the myth that says shaving hair regularly will make it grow quicker and thicker in size. Even the science doesn’t say so. The hair grows uneven in length, but don’t try to cut/trim it until it is fully grown. Leave it for at least 4 to 6 weeks before grooming it.
  2. Since the hair grows at an uneven pace, it may cause some rashes or itching sometimes. In such cases, consult your doctor and he’ll recommend a soothing cream based on your skin type. You can also follow these tips to avoid a itchy beard.
