Not a good idea: Medications that cause hair growth have adverse effects and do not cause hair growth only in the beard area

When a 21 y/o has not developed "secondary sexual characteristics" which for example is lack of growing a beard and mustache, an examination by a doctor may reveal an underlying medical condition that may or may not need to be treated, versus a condition based on family traits.

Big picture: If you're getting hard erections and enjoying your ejaculations and you're horny much of the time like other guys your age, then this is probably just you. About five percent of guys can't grow a good beard. Many women nowadays say they prefer this, and it's unlikely that you'll go bald later on. Embrace what nature gave you, keep your body in great shape, and this will be a non-problem.

In some cultures, it's a "spiritual requirement" to grow a beard and a man who can't is stigmatized. If this is you, you have my sympathy, and my hope that you'll recognize this as human-made bunk.

Do it!: Grow the beard! it may be appropriate to discuss this with your family and hear what they have to say. If it gives you a sense of well being to have facial hair, gives you confidence, takes away anxiety and generally help your overall sense of who you are, then go for it! think of the down side first. How will this affect me negatively. Employer? Girlfriend? Family? Think, then do!

Dry/ oil: Astringents and facial cleansers which are designed to strip the face of oil can be over-used. In this situation, the skin may produce more oil in response. The skin may also become raw and dry.
