Men with beards are often seen as more attractive due to how facial hair accentuates masculine features such as a strong jawline or cheekbones.
Facial hair can provide a natural shield against UV rays, blocking up to 95% of radiation and reducing the risk of sunburn and skin cancer.
Beards can trap bacteria, reducing the risk of skin infections, as they possess antimicrobial properties and lower bacterial counts compared to clean-shaven faces.
Beards can potentially filter allergens, reducing the risk of allergies, but proper hygiene and cleaning are crucial to prevent allergen trapping and potential irritation.
Beards offer insulation by retaining heat near the skin, providing warmth and protection against cold climates.
