What’s the purpose of growing a beard?

Here are 8 reasons to grow a beard, all proven by science.

#1. Throughout history, beards have conferred prestige. Ancient philosophers always retained their beards as a badge of their profession and the ancient Egyptians wore fake metallic beards in front of their faces to mark special occasions, such as solar eclipses. These hairpieces, called postiches, adorned the faces of men and women.

#2. Bearded men are more attractive. Women find full bearded men to be two thirds more attractive than clean shaven men.

#3. Beards have magic powers!

A decent beard can transform a pasty nerd into a rugged hunk.

#6. Growing a beard helps you save time. It’s been calculated that a man could spend 139 days of his life shaving. That’s wasted time that could be spent:

#7. Having a beard is good for your health. It protects your skin from the sun, it blocks allergens and insulates your neck so you won’t catch a cold.

#8. You can’t fake it. You either have it or you don’t.

I have a t-shirt addiction, a craving for new RTS video games and a dream to become Captain America. I also grow my own beard so I'm kind of a big deal! :P
