Five Reasons To Grow Beard For World Beard Day

Mark your calendars, gentlemen, September 5th is World Beard Day! It’s the hirsute man’s time to shine! In honor of that fact, here are 5 reasons for growing a beard.

Beards Give You A Stronger Jawline

Beards are the key to covering up a weak jawline or a double chin. Whether you’ve always been self-conscious about the shape of your jaw or you’re putting on weight and it’s showing on your chin, letting your facial hair grow can solve both of these issues.

Growing A Beard Helps Your Facial Symmetry

If your face is circular or squared off, that means the width and length of your face are almost equal. You need a beard that’s going to add some length. However, if your face shape is rectangular or oblong, a long beard will only make your face look longer. You’ll want to keep longer sides instead to add symmetry.

Beards Block Out UV Rays

Growing a beard is your natural SPF. Thick beards are capable of blocking out 95 percent of the UV rays from the sun.

A 2011 Oxford Academic study proved beards provide far more sun protection that the other parts of your body.

“The facial hair reduced the exposure ratio (ERs) to approximately one-third of those sites with no hair,” the study reads. So, your beard is a surefire way to fight off all the effects of time in the sun—premature aging, skin cancer risk, sunburn

A More Rugged Look

When we look back in history, beards first served the purpose of showing a man’s masculinity. Not in some misogynistic, caveman beating his chest kind of way. There was an evolutionary advantage of beards. Like a male deer’s antlers, beards served as an indication of maleness. They’re the obvious signal to women that you were capable of being a protector and provider. 

A Well-Groomed Beard Helps Prevent Aging

Beards function as a filter between your skin and filter allergens and airborne bacteria away from your skin. The aforementioned blocking of UV Rays also keeps your skin clear of cancerous blemishes. Having a beard also reduces the amount of acne and discoloration on your skin, your skin will stay healthy for longer.
