Despite recent bogus claims that our ever so trusty beards are going out of style and are no longer considered all that cool anymore, face fuzz still seems to remain as popular with many men from every corner of the globe. And it seems there might be hidden benefits to growing out a little gruff too.
Not only have our beards been scientifically proven to make men more attractive to the opposite sex, research has now revealed that furry faces could prove to be a real health benefit too.
Facial hair serves as a firewall against everyday nasties, as it becomes the perfect protection from around a staggering 90 per cent of the sun's harmful UV rays. A recent study conducted by professors at The University of Queensland have revealed, as experts have since confirmed such findings to be indeed correct.
Of course you fuzzy face fluff cannot solely protect you from the sun all by itself, as sunscreen is still very much recommended whenever you are out and about on a hot summers day, but they certainly help in blocking a percentage of otherwise harmful UV rays. Not only this, but you are also helping your skin stay protected which in turn could also delay the natural aging process, keeping you and your skin youthful and hopefully a little more wrinkle free too.
I feel our furry face forests will always get somewhat of a bad wrap in the news and media, as they continue on their one sided torrid on trying to shame our whiskers at any given opportunity, but try as they might they'll never shame us out of existence. My beard will remain with me forever more regardless of whatever the press might try to throw at us next, and I have a funny feeling I'm not alone in thinking this way either, am I right or am I right?
