Beards Keep You Young, Healthy & Handsome, Says Science

I buy it, especially this part:

; and I say this without prejudice even though I have a beard. It just seems so true.

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.

 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.




I anticipate resistance which I must forestall. Anyone who objects to beards, or dislikes them, male or female, is merely expressing their jealousy because they cannot grow one. And that's a fact.  :tongue2:

The clean cut look never went away after I got out of the Army. Beards are just more unnecessary maintenance.

Not crazy about beards - though if it came with Blake Shelton attached I could be convinced to adjust my thinking.

I had a mustache since high school. The only time I ever shaved it was in Navy Bootcamp. In a better decade some say I was a dead ringer for Tom Seleck, and looking back at some of my old photos maybe I was.   Grew  a beard once, until I was told the dead ringer look-a-like was now Jesus. The Prince of Peace look was not really what I was shooting for so off it came. Still have the mustache, but unless Tom is also mostly balled, and about 45 pounds overweigt, I don't think there is much of a chance of me still being mistaken for him.

Damn right.  And I can't say enough about not having to shave every morning.
