The Health Benefits and Advantages of Growing a Beard
by The Famous Beard Oil Company
It’s Movember (NoShaveNovember) – that time of year when men start skipping their morning shaves and grow a beard, mustache or goatee throughout November to raise awareness of male cancers and mental health. It’s followed by Decembeard, when sporting some awesome looking facial hair will help highlight bowel cancer.
But whether you’ve got a stache, goatee or a full-on manly beard, here The Famous Beard Oil Company informs you how ditching the razor has its own health benefits and advantages. Check out our Movember deals!
Charles Darwin first noted an evolutionary explanation of beards in “The Descent of Man,” in which he hypothesized that the process of sexual selection may have led to beards. (Yes, you read that right.) Females find hirsute suitors sexy. And although detractors may deny it, modern biologists have reaffirmed Darwin’s theory with evidence that the ladies find mates with beards more attractive than their clean-shaven brethren.
But beyond a beard’s magical magnetic allure, experts suggest that men with beards, goatee’s and mustaches enjoy additional benefits; specifically, better health. Here’s what they say:
They protect against the sun
A study from the University of Southern Queensland, published in 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.
Generally hair offers good protection against the sun, says Dr. Nick Lowe, a leading London-based dermatologist. “It’s similar to an SPF factor,” he adds. “The higher the hair density and thickness, the higher the SPF.” Sounds like good health benefits!
Beards keep you warm during the winter
Not only do beards protect us from wind burn but we have all experienced those bitterly, bone-chilling cold winters where we have nothing to protect our faces with and we prayed for warmer weather or a scarf to materialize out of thin air but with the health benefits of your epic beard you never have to worry about that again. Your beard is guaranteed to keep your face warm, even in the coldest weather and as a best friend, while you thank it, it speaks back and says, “Don’t worry, I got you, buddy.” Regular use of our Famous Beard Oils will aid in this!
Beards build up protection against allergens
Deborah Waddell, lead clinical advisor at Asthma UK, corroborates Dr. Bassett’s statement and says that a beard or moustache can act as a “Thames Barrier” for the airways and prevent foreign particles from entering them. However, she also says that since these particles get trapped, our man fur needs to be cleansed regularly. (The Famous Beard Oil Co. Beard & Body Wash)
Beards are guaranteed to give you a blemish free skin by preventing razor rash, acne and ingrown hairs
Razor rash, acne and ingrown hairs are something that we all detest. The hours of scratching our itchy faces and even contemplating the use of a cheese grater or sand paper to relieve the never-ending itching has been a curse upon us all at one stage or another but by growing a beard and using Beard Oil you will never have to worry about this again. No more razor rash makes for a happier man. Apart from the razor rash, there are many of us that suffer from acne and pimples; at times they can even lead to unsightly scarring. With using the health benefits of a beard this will not be a problem anymore since your beard will not only cover as camouflage for any scars but also prevent it from ever occurring which will boost your confidence. When we shave we irritate the skin and effectively break the protective barrier of our epidermal layers which in turn allows various bacteria to enter into the microscopic wounds; when the subaceous glands (oil glands) in our skin get infected by acne vulgaris bacteria the end result is acne, spots, pimples and folliculitis (inflammation of the hair follicle) and nobody wants that. Not only does putting the razor down have that effect on our skin but our beards provide us with a secret weapon; that weapon being, natural skin moisturizer. Beard Oil aids in this! Beards prevent us from rubbing off our natural skin moisturiser and even protects our faces from wind burn.
Beards make men feel more attractive
A German consumer-goods company decided to poll 1,000 men in New York about their facial hair and grooming practices. 67% of the men surveyed said they sport some sort of facial hair, a beard or a mustache. Of those men, over 50% said they feel more attractive with their facial hair. 55% of those men said they have received compliments on their facial hair, while 41% said they have gained confidence from their facial hair.

Having a beard increases your chances of getting laid
According to a 2008 study carried out by psychologists at Northumbria University, “women … rated men with stubble as tough, mature, aggressive, dominant and masculine — and as the best romantic partners, either for a fling or a long-term relationships.” Another quote from the researchers in the Journal of Personality and Individual Differences was that “Facial hair, or beardedness, is a powerful sociosexual signal, and an obvious biological marker of sexual maturity.”
I think it’s pretty safe to say that having a beard is better than not having one, and that was before finding out these health benefits of having a beard. Now that you know that having a beard is actually improving your health benefits, why would you not grow it! And why would you want to shave, especially when The Famous Beard Oil Company has you covered with the best beard care products! Treat your face the way it wants to be treated.
