A beard isn’t just something that looks cool, but it’s also very healthy for you. Although growing a beard is a divisive topic, here are 10 reasons why you should do it.

  • Protection from the Sun

Scientific research has shown that beards can block out up to 95% of the sun’s UV rays. You can notice that the parts of skin where you’ve grown a beard are much more protected from the sun than their bald counterparts. A beard can work as a sunscreen, keep you from getting burnt, and can even protect you from skin cancer.

  • Clearer Skin

Having a beard also means your skin will be healthier and thus have way less wrinkles. This is thanks to your beard’s ability to block out sun rays. 

  • Moisturized Skin

Because you don’t shave as often, or ever, in some cases, your face stays moisturized. Shaving can open up pores in your skin, which can dry it out in the long run. Grooming a beard is fine (and necessary) as long as you don’t use a razor on your face.

  • Shaving Can Give You Acne

If you have a beard, then I’m sure you shaved before. Do you notice all the acne that grows right after a good shave? That’s because shaving helps spread acne-causing bacteria. It is always a better idea to let your beard grow out and harvest all the benefits that come with it.

  • You’ll Look Manlier

Beards are often referred to as man’s most suitable accessory. Studies have shown that not only women think bearded men are manlier, but men do too. Although judgmental, but beardless men are still perceived as more on the effeminate side.

  • Women Love It

If you’re already lucky with the ladies, then a beard will double your chances. Women love everything that is “manly”, and a beard just happens to be one of those things. There are different types of beards, in different sizes, but keep in mind that the bigger your beard is the manlier you’ll look and more chances you’ll have with women.

  • Makes You Confident

Confidence is a very important element in your life, which is why you need to make sure you do the right things to build it. A beard will give you the sense of power and confidence that you need. You start to feel more complete and you can have a more successful life thanks to that.

  • Prevents Infections

A beard will protect the open pores in your skin from different types of bacteria. Bacteria tries to get inside those open pores and cause infections in them.

  • You’ll Look More Handsome

A beard can truly make you more handsome. If you don’t like how your chin looks, grow a beard. You think your complexion is bad? Grow a beard. A beard will take care of all of that for you. A study has shown that opinion on men’s looks grew more positive as their beard grew in fuller.

  • Stay Younger
