Let's be honest, we don't need much of an excuse for growing out our beards. But occasionally you'll find a family member or partner who doesn't dig your facial forest nearly as much as you do. So here's a handy little guide as to why your beard is indeed a smashing idea, so todays blog post we are giving you 4 good reasons why you should grow out a beard...
NO MORE SHAVING FOR YOU MISTER!
Just think of the time you'll save by not having to lift a dreadful razor to your face each and every morning for your foreseeable bearding future! On average a clean shaven 'man' spends around a whopping 4000 hours shaving during their lifetime. That is over five months of shaving! Just think of all that extra coffee you can now fit in before the morning rush hour begins!
BEARDS HELP KEEP YOU WARM IN THE WINTER AND COOLER IN THE SUMMER!
Not only does your beard-mane look the business, but it also serves as a face warmer in those cold winter months locking in your facial heat. On the flipside it also serves as a cooler in the hotter summer months as your facial fluff will hold in tiny beads of sweat which helps keep your furry chops temperature slightly lower, in turn making you a tad bit cooler when you are out and about enjoying the summer sun. So that old myth suggesting that beards will in fact cause you to overheat in hotter weather is nothing more than an old wives' tale.
BEARDS CAN EVEN HELP WITH YOUR ALLERGIES!
This has to remain one of the most helpful uses your beard can provide you with. Being a man who has suffered no end with various allergies over the years, from pet allergies to severe hay fever. Since growing out a full bushy ginger beard I can most certainly confirm that beards do in fact help reduce most allergies you may suffer from. 'But how does this work?' I hear you all ask. Well, your beard works as a barrier to any allergy nasties you may find floating around in the air, a lot like a filter your facial fluff catches any pollutants, stopping them dead in their tracks. Now, I'm not saying your beard will cure you of severe cases of allergies, but speaking from personal experience it most certainly helps reduce them. Pretty impressive I'm sure you'd agree!
YOUR BEARD MAKES YOU LOOK MORE MANLY AND MASCULINE!
It is no secret that most Women dig our beards (and rightfully so!) But numerous studies over the years have suggested that both men and women perceive Gentlemen with facial hair to be more masculine. In history beards are often recognised as a symbol of strength and power. From Ancient Greek Gods such as Zeus, to American Presidents like Abraham Lincoln beards are seen as a symbolic part of History. So let's raise a glass as I tilt my hat and toast -LONG LIVE THE BEARD!
