I'm nearly 18 and I want to grow a beard, how can I?

I'm nearly 18 and I want to grow a beard, how can I?

Give it time: Around 5% of guys are never able to grow a good beard. If you're horny and getting good erections and ejaculations like other guys your age, your being smooth is just your physiology. Many women say they prefer a smooth man; Paul Newman was the male icon of his era and was super-smooth like you, and I don't hear Justin Bieber complaining. Smooth guys almost never go bald. Embrace who you are. ...Read more

Won't work: Jay, you're just going to disfigure yourself if you apply anything to your face to try to grow a beard that you can't grow (it's genetic and not modifiable) and don't really want. If you have hyperpigmented marks from acne, get the acne itself treated & let the marks face on their own. If you're good-hearted and have good social skills, folks will like both you and your distinctive marks. ...Read more

How can grow a thick beard ?

How can grow a thick beard ?

It's genetic: A few men have tried painting their faces with rogaine (minoxidil) but the results haven't been altogether salutary. Around 5% of men have no chest hair and very little facial hair, and if you are not genetically programmed to have a thick beard and a lot of body hair, you can't change this. Most women in the usa seem to prefer a smoother, thin-bearded man, & if you're fit, lean, muscular, this is all moot. ...Read more

At what age do you think my beard will grow in?

At what age do you think my beard will grow in?

Maybe it won't: We'll see by age 20. Around 5% of men, myself included, are genetically unable to grow chest hair or a decent beard. Many women prefer it, and guys like us usually don't go bald. Joe Kinnaman, Larry Bird, Muhammad Ali and Paul Newman are male superstars with smooth faces. Enjoy what you've got, and remember that any guy looks good if, and only if, he is physically fit. ...Read more
