As the year comes to a close, the number of guys sporting facial fluff appears to be increasing. Some attribute it to personal style, while others do it for the Movember movement. For the past several years, November has been renamed Movember to raise awareness on crucial men's health issues such as prostate cancer. 

However, while the movement itself is crucial, most men leave beard care to luck, causing several health issues.

Additionally, people with allergies also report that sporting a beard appears to alleviate their symptoms. In this post, we'll look at the truth of the matter, as well as examine some of the other health advantages of growing out a beard. Continue reading! 

Can Beards Help with My Allergies?

If you suffer from allergies, growing a beard may have unanticipated consequences.

Suppose you are allergic to cats, dogs, dust, or the weather changes that spring brings. In that case, you will often have a physical reaction caused by allergens entering the body through the nose or mouth, which is why you are sneezing, coughing, or having difficulty breathing. 

In this case, your facial hair will act as a barrier against the particles triggering your allergies. And, because your body will become used to lesser amounts of these particles, you will be less likely to experience an allergic reaction as the beard collects or filters the allergens before they enter your system.

Why Personal Hygiene Is Still Paramount

Personal hygiene reduces the efficacy of facial hair in the matter. It may even convert it into a hazard because everything it filters will remain in your beard until you clean it. 

All of the dust, germs, and other allergens that have accumulated in there can, through time and accumulation, potentially WORSEN your allergy or asthma symptoms.

Some allergens will become trapped in the mustache or beard, exposing the body to the allergens for a longer length of time. Over time, you are effectively desensitizing yourself to the allergy.

Grooming beards is beneficial because it keeps the filter clean when they get too filthy, in which the allergen burden increases and overpowers your body's tolerance.

Other Advantages of a Clean, Unshaved Beard

  1. Slows the Aging Process

The sun's rays, as well as the damage caused by acne, are just a few of the reasons that can cause your skin to appear older and weaker.

You can maintain your skin appearing younger and decrease the appearance of wrinkles by growing a beard.

  1. Helps Reduce Skin Problems

The skin on your face and neck is incredibly delicate. If you suffer from acne regularly, a beard may be the solution you're searching for.

Not only will your rash be concealed, but not needing to shave will make it less likely to worsen. If you have acne and shave frequently, your razor may cut into your pimples.

As you might guess, this will only make matters worse. They are best left alone, which is simpler if you do not need to go near them.

  1. Acne Prevention

If you've been forced to deal with acne more frequently than you'd like, growing your beard out might help. When growing a beard, shaving is done less frequently, protecting your skin from infection and minimizing oil buildup.

This will help to minimize any acne you may have over time. Furthermore, your beard will help to conceal acne if it does appear on your face. You'll be able to conceal pimples and other imperfections and go about your day as if they didn't exist.


Well-managed and clean beards can and can help you decrease your risk of inhaling allergies. Regularly trimming isn't enough; you should wash it a few times each week, more frequently if you have a thicker beard or spend a lot of time outside. 

If you want your facial hair to stand out and stay healthy, you must use the right beard care products.
