MD Dave Harvey weighs in ! 

Ladies & gentlemen , according to our Khanatural survey , ladies appreciate a man with a beard 75% more than they feel the clean shaven Kings. While Men are 60 % in support of the bearded life. 

Some studies have shown that beards can harbor dangerous bacteria, while others have found beards beneficial in reducing skin cancer. So how do you determine whether you should let your facial hair grow? Dave Harvey, M.D., a dermatologist at Piedmont, gets to the root of the problem.

“The benefit of having a beard is protection, as well as aesthetics,” says Dr. Harvey. “Its good protection against wind, chafing and traumatic injury. It’s also a trend, so we see a lot of men with some form of facial hair.”

The health benefits of beards

Beards can:

  • Protect skin from sun damage. Beards can help protect the skin from harmful UV rays, though the degree of protection may depend on hair density and thickness. “You’re going to have some protection because hair is a reflective medium,” says Dr. Harvey. “Even though some UV rays get through, there is some scattering of the light and that’s how it helps protect against sun damage.”
  • Keep you warm.  Beards can add a layer of protection to your chin and neck, thus keeping you warm in colder weather. The longer and fuller the beard, the better it will insulate your face.
  • Make you feel more attractive. A study conducted by the Official Journal of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society found that men with a moderately full beard are found most attractive and men with full beards may be perceived as better fathers who could protect and invest in their children. “Men with beards have a powerful look,” says Dr. Harvey. “And that’s an attractive thing.”

One of our favorite bearded men is a South African businessman , popular blogger and an automotive brand influencer Jabu Brown! He says he had no idea that there were actual health benefits of having a beard , “Infact ,that’s interesting” he laughs , “ I thought it was a look , like a hairstyle…” he continues. We love the fact that Jabu is not shy about his grooming sessions , he believes that as a guy , it’s important to take care of your beard , keep it clean and looking healthy!

Common problems for beard growers

Growing a beard is not always easy. And if your beard is not properly cared for, it can become a harbinger for bacteria.

“If you don’t clean your beard well, and you let it just do its own thing, sometimes you can accumulate yeast and get dandruff within the beard,” says Dr. Harvey. “With that you’ll get a reactive scaling on the face and flaking like you would with dandruff. So those patients need to be put on antifungal shampoo.”

Beard growers also face the challenge of ingrown follicles that result in bumps known as acne keloidalis.

“Some men will get a raised scarring type of bump called an acne keloidalis of the neck,” he says. “So we offer them topical antibiotics or Retin A for those particular reasons.”
