  1. Beard has many benefits some are given below:
    1. Prevents Skin Cancer
    Recent researches have shown that 95 per cent of UV rays from the sun is blocked by beards. Besides keeping the sun out of your face, this is also important as exposure to UV rays can cause cancer. The thicker the hair, the better!

    2. Reduction Of Asthma And Allergy Symptoms:
    If you suffer from pollen or dust allergy or even asthma, facial hair actually helps by working as a filter and prevent the allergens from settling. This is not much different from nasal hair.

    3. Stay Young, forever!
    Here s your secret to naturally lessen signs of ageing. With lesser sun exposure, you can actually continue to look younger, unlike the guys who do not go for beards. The paradox of sorts beards make you look older, but actually, keep you looking younger!

    4. Stave Off Illness
    So it might be summer now, but when it gets biting cold during fall or winter – the beard will keep you warm and can actually help you battle colds as well. The longer the beard, the better insulation you get!

    5. Reduce Infections
    You never have to worry about bacterial infections, ingrowths and folliculitis (infection of the hair follicles, causing spots) with a beard. These infections are occupational hazards of regular shaving. Be done with that, and be done with such problems as well!

    6. Blemish-Free Skin
    When you do not have ingrowths, razor cuts and other such skin problems, you have a blemish-free skin. Keep the beard and the great skin, and forget about little nicks and cuts on your face.
