10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD START GROWING A BEARD
By AYUSH NARESH KUMAR
In historical days, there was a time when growing a beard was an important part of every man. Men without beards were considered ill or inferior. At that time men knew the importance of beard as one could define the characteristics of a person just by looking at his beard. Facial hair was just enough to show the strength, experience, wisdom of a man. It was beards that marked the presence of famous personalities and powerful civilizations. When those bearded men used to walk, they used to carry a powerful aura with them which demanded respect.
Sadly in the 21st century, men have forgotten their history and chosen monotony over individuality. Bald faces are today’s trend. Once considered as a sign of wisdom and masculinity is now considered as something dirty, something bad. We’ve forgotten all the benefits of beard and developed a misconception that bald-faced guys are neat and clean and bearded guys are unhealthy and dirty that’s why we call those shaved faces as ‘clean shaved’ and not ‘completely shaved’.
But do not worry the situation is becoming better. Beards are coming back to trend, people have started recognizing and accepting the abilities of facial hair. That’s why today I’m sharing this article with you so that you can understand why it was an important part of the history and why you should start giving it important as it also a part of your body.
REASON NO. 10 - BEARDS CAN HELP YOU WITH ASTHMA AND ALLERGY PROBLEMS.
We all know the importance of hair inside our nostrils which not only block dust particles but also filters the air to keep us healthy. In the same manner, your beard also acts as a natural filter. Facial hair prevents allergens and various airborne bacteria from entering your body. But since facial hair traps all those dust particles and allergens, they need to be cleaned regularly. So if you are suffering from any dust or pollen allergies or even asthma, growing a beard will help you with that.
REASON NO. 9 - SHAVING YOUR BEARD REGULARLY CAN LEAD TO ACNE.
Our skin is made up of various layers. Outermost layer being the protective layer which protects your body from various harmful elements. When we shave on a regular basis, we cause harm to that protective layer sometimes even causing wounds which allows various harmful bacterias to enter. Those harmful bacterias cause acne, pimples, sometimes inflammation of some hair follicles. So just grow a beard and enjoy a blemish free skin.
REASON NO. 8 - BEARDS PROTECTS YOU FROM HARMFUL UV RAYS.
In present world which is free of vampires (well I hope so) almost all of us spends no. of hours outside our homes under the direct sun on a daily basis. With all those beneficial things there is one thing which is not beneficial that comes with sunlight is UV rays. UV rays are so harmful that it can even cause skin cancer. In most of the skin cancer cases, it starts from face and neck. In that situation, your beard acts as a barrier for those UV rays to reach your face, neck and actually saves you from that cancerous elements.
REASON NO. 7 - GROWING A BEARD SAVES YOU TIME.
I know to this you might think grooming also requires some time but just think, especially those guys who shave on a daily basis that how much time you spend on shaving that beard off. Every day you have to wake up early so that you can shave and go to your office/school/college being monotonous leaving all health benefits behind. Just apply a basic math and do a total how much time you spend on shaving throughout the year. Believe me for some guys it will come to even few days. You can use that time for learning a new skill or may be in polishing your skills like doing a workout, may be preparing a healthy breakfast or anything which you always wanted to do.
REASON NO. 6 - FACIAL HAIR MAKES YOU LOOK MORE MASCULINE.
Beards have the ability to speak without uttering a word, they have the ability to present a man carrying that beard. As I said earlier, facial hair shows strength, experience, wisdom. Leaders, gurus, historians, travelers who’ve got life tales to tell have that look. No matter good or bad but influencers like Fidel Castro, Tony Stark and many more grew facial hair to mark their presence in our minds. Try it yourself, grow a beard, it gives you that intimidating look that will make people take you more seriously.
REASON NO. 5 - BEARD KEEPS YOUR SKIN MOISTURIZED.
Yes, the same reason why you use a moisturizer for your face. When you shave off your beard, you open up the pores on your skin. Sometimes shaving also causes cuts. All this will dry out your skin over time. Those exposed pores cause your skin to loose moisture. You might have also seen flakiness of skin sometimes, that is also because caused because of that. So grow a beard, avoid all this and enjoy a healthy moisturized skin.
REASON NO. 4 - BEARD GIVES YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY COUNTLESS LOOKS.
Get out of that regular world of monotony expecting something new and find your individuality. In your individuality, you will find that ‘something new’. Grow a beard, try out different looks. Who knows what you will come up with. Maybe you will come up with Gandalf or Abraham Lincoln or maybe the best is still undiscovered. Try out any style you want, you choose what makes you feel better or what will give you that individuality.
REASON NO. 3 - FACIAL HAIR KEEPS YOU YOUNGER.
No, it will not cut down your age. But when you choose a beard over bald face, it rewards you by saving you from all those cancerous elements, harmful bacterias, acne. It minimizes sun exposure to your skin. It keeps out those allergens and dust particles. It improves your overall health, thus keeping you younger for a longer period of time.
REASON NO. 2 - FACIAL HAIR CAN MAKE YOU LOOK OLDER.
There are many young guys and many guys with younger looks. Sometimes situations come when they want to represent themselves as much older and experiences person so that other people will take them seriously, to mark their importance. In that case, you can try growing a beard. Your beard can get you that effect.
REASON NO. 1 - BECAUSE YOU ARE THE CHOSEN ONE.
Believe me, if you’ll think deeply, you are going to like it. We come across many people who don’t have the ability to grow a beard. They cannot do something which you can do by doing nothing. You can so why not. Many people know it importance but cannot grow it. You can carry their dream with you and you don’t have to do something impossible. Try out different styles and flaunt it each and every day. Experience the adventure, the ups, and downs. Get out of that monotonous mob and find yourself then enjoy that individuality with different experiences every day. You are different from anybody else so be different, live different.
