Remember you had shaved for the very first time and then you realized how stupid you looked? Beards have always been seen as prestigious throughout the history. After all, growing beard is one the best gift a man can ever get.
1. BEARD AND SEX HAS A RELATION!
Facial hair grows faster when a man hasn’t had sex for a while.WOAH! This is due to a hormonal thing. Having extra testosterone in the body leads to fuller hair growth, and the hair can sometimes be thicker and stronger.
2. BEARDS INCREASE A MAN’S SOCIAL STATUS
Women find a man with a full beard more attractive than a clean-shaven man according to studies. Having a beard is a symbol that a guy is especially masculine, and shows that he’s conquered the (sometimes challenging) feat of growing a full beard. Basically, guys who have never had a problem growing facial hair after puberty are more likely to get adoring stares from women.
3. BEARDS GROW FASTER IN THE DAYTIME
This is because when a beard is in the sun, it gets more vitamin D, which stimulates healthy hair growth.
4. THAT’S A LOT OF HAIR
There are an estimated 30,000 hairs on an average man’s face. Our advice? Use some of that abundant hair to grow the beard you know you’ve always wanted.
5. BEARDS ARE GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH
Beards have a positive effect on your health and well-being for a variety of reasons, including that they protect you from the sun’s harmful UV rays – up to 95% in most cases.
6. SLOW BUT STEADY
The average man’s beard grows 5.5 inches a year – which goes to show that you can’t rush great work.
7. A BEARD KEEPS YOUR FACE MOISTURIZED
Everyone’s face gets dry from time to time, but it has built-in moisturizing capabilities because of sebaceous glands that secret oils.
8. A BEARD WILL SAVE 4.5 MONTHS OF YOUR LIFE
The average man wastes 4.5 months – or 139 full days – shaving. Imagine what you could do with that time instead? Instead of shaving, why not travel, exercise, learn a new skill, scuba dive, mountain climb, or even spend some quality time with your loved ones 🙂
