There might be more to your beard than you first thought. Beard Trimmer Bay is here to tell you how brilliant your beard really is.
Now it goes without saying that beards look pretty darn awesome. I mean, we don’t need numerous scientific beard studies to confirm that for us, do we? But our beards don’t just look good. They can actually help us out in more ways than you might think.
For instance, did you know that having a beard could be pretty beneficial for your health?
You see, researchers found that a beard can act like a sort of screen whereby it can potentially protect your skin from up to 95% of harmful UV rays. The results? It means you are less likely to get skin cancer there, plus it reduces the appearance of ageing in your skin, keeping you looking younger for longer. Not bad, eh?
Not only that though, your beard also performs as a hairy filter, preventing airborne bacteria from infecting you.
It’s not just your health that your beard is helping you out with either – there’s other ways it is benefiting you too:
One study which was studying societal perception of facial haired men found that those who sport them were put on a sort of social pedestal. One experiment found that a freelancer wearing a fake beard actually had improved job opportunities. So a beard could in fact boost your career rather than hinder it.
There are 15 of these little-known reasons to grow a beard, all are backed by science, in-depth surveys and experiments. Check them out in the infographic below – how many did you know?
