Apart from making ye manly and stylish and trendy, beards have other benefits as well:
- They prevent skin cancer. Some smart lads and lassies looked into that and found that beards block about 95% of UV rays on yer mug.
- If ye have allergies, yer beard helps ya to block the pollen and dust and whatever else ye may be allergic to. Just like nasal hair — only a lot more attractive.
- A beard will keep ye warm in the winter.
- Regular shaving can cause bacterial infections and ingrowths. If ye stop shaving on a regular basis — grow a beard so to speak — ye won’t have those problems.
- Beards guard against dry skin, cause the beard keeps out wind, cold air, and sun — all those things that dry out yer face. Yer beard acts like a natural moisterizer.
Mateys, all I can say is: GET YER BEARD ON!
