Beards Keep You Young, Healthy & Handsome, Says Science

Gentlemen, they’re not just for hipsters and the homeless any more. While both dead sexy and totally awesome, beards are also a boon to your overall health. Researchers discovered that men with beards and moustaches actually enjoy numerous benefits including, but not limited to, instant handsomeness.

A study from the University of Southern Queensland, published in the Radiation Protection Dosimetry journal, found that beards block 90 to 95 percent of UV rays, thereby slowing the aging process and reducing the risk of skin cancer. Got asthma? Pollens and dust simply get stuck in that lustrous facial hair. Additionally, all that hair retains moisture and protects against the wind, keeping you looking young and fresh-faced. What’s more, shaving is usually the cause of ingrown hairs and bacterial infections that lead to acne.

Have you tossed your razor in the trash yet?

To conduct the study, researchers left bearded mannequins, along with less attractive, follically-challenged ones, in the blistering sun of the Australian outback and then compared the amount of radiation absorbed by each.

But don’t forget to take care of those blessed follicles; beards can also spread infection if not properly cared for and make consumption of certain foods (e.g. cheeseburgers, corn on the cob, falafel sandwiches—anything with hummus actually, bagel ‘n’ schmear, syrupy pancakes) rather laborious. Fuzzy-faced men would be wise to take advantage of beard wash and beard oil, essential tools for looking and feeling your beardy best.

-“A woman with a beard looks like a man. A man without a beard looks like a woman!”

-“Beard is not grown by man its gifted by mother nature or due to hormones in human body…even when you shave it comes back in a day or two…….means mother nature wants to remind you that hey man it should be there..it is important but for faked outer buty we just shave it …..”

-“OK, Then whats your opinion on nails… what would you say, sir ?”

-“You can grow your nails and beard together. you’ll know the difference. Why a beard grows on a man has it’s wisdom and scientific benifits, and why nails grow for both man and woman have its own reasoning. Your not comparing an apple with apple. When you clip your nails your body benifits, but when you shave your beard your body looses.”
