Despite various claims in the media that beards are a ''dying fashion phase'' or that they are simply ''not cool anymore,'' our furry faces remain as popular with many men around the globe- and with very good reason too.
Not only have our marvelous beards been scientifically proven to make men more attractive
, research has since unveiled that facial hair have added benefits too, as they can protect you from an average of 90 to 95% of otherwise harmful UV rays, as our face fuzz works as a Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF)
, a case study conducted by professors at The University of Queensland had previously revealed, and experts have since continued to back up such findings in studies that have since followed.
Not only can our face fur work great against a heatwave, they also have the added bonus of acting as a 'face scarf'
and keep our face cheeks warmer in the cold frosty bite of winter, proving how versatile our beard can be.
With lower exposure to harsh UV rays this could also mean that beards can also help in the delay of the natural ageing process, keeping protected skin to appear youthful and wrinkle-free for longer,
meaning those wrinkles will take longer to appear as your skin stays protected below ones beard, which can only be seen as an added bonus for the bearded.
Surveys and studies continue to confirm the popularity of facial hair being a winner for those who look for a certain look in a man, with many suggesting no beards being a real deal breaker for a potential partner. Do iI honestly feel beards are on the decline and are dieing out? Quite the opposite! I've come to learn that the media will report on just about anything to help slander and bash our furry faces around the world, it is just as important to take such articles with a pinch of salt and humour them rather than take them too seriously.
