Hair Growth: It is still most likely genetic as some traits can skip generations. It is best to have your PCP evaluate you for possible hormonal deficiency and if all tests are normal, then a dermatologist evaluation would be the next step for assessment of any pathology.

Be patient: Facial hair is largely driven by genetics, so there is no great way to enhance its growth. Frequent shaving may increase the thickness. At 26, you are at the age where your physical maturity is likely peaked, but you have not yet started showing any signs of aging. As you get older, you are more likely to appreciate your youthful appearance.

Nothing: Unless you suffer from hypogonadism with a very low testosterone then there is nothing to promote facial hair growth. Now if you do have hypogonadism see an endocrinologist, they can start you on testosterone replacement and in a few months you will see facial hair growth.
