YOUR BEARD IS A SHIELD THAT PROTECTS YOU FROM THE SUN
Beards are rather smart, so much so that in the hotter months of the year when the sun beams down upon us, our facial hair acts as a barrier helping protect your skin from the potentially harmful sun rays. This can also help protect your skin from the aging process, as harsh heatwaves are known to age skin much faster in comparison to those who are protected. Not bad for a face full of whiskers don't you think?
BEARDS CAN ALSO HELP LESSEN THE EFFECT OF ALLERGIES
Allergies are highly annoying, pretty ugly and tend to pop up at the worst of times. Your beard realises this, and wants to lend you a helping hand.
To keep things simple, your beard acts like a form of barrier, catching any nasties that might be floating in the air we breath, locking them away safely that might otherwise find their way into your system that trigger certain allergies.
Permitted your beard isn't a magical 'cure' or permanent fix for hayfever of other allergies, but they can certainly help slow down the effects.
YOUR BEARD CAN HELP WITH POOR SKIN AND NASTY RASHES
The daily grind of shaving each and everyday can cause your skin to wear and tear, often resulting in nasty skin breakouts and unsightly rashes.
These not only itch like crazy and irritate your skin, causing the problem to spread, but they can prove rather tricky to clear away as well.
Thankfully us bearded fellows don't need to concern ourselves with such problems as shaving, as furry faces help keep your skin protected and healthy, locking in your skins natural moisture.
ON THE FLIPSIDE, BEARDS CAN ALSO HELP KEEP YOU WARM AND COSY
So, we know beards are badass in the hot summer. But what happens when the ice cold winter months begin to set in? Like a true superhero, your beard comes to the rescue.
They do say 'who needs to wear a scarf when I can grow my own?' and it's true! Your beard helps lock in your body heat, working as a form of insulation helping to keep you a touch warmer when it is needed. Not too shabby now, is it?
