Beards – whether long, short, rare or uniquely shaped – is something that most men treasure and think to be an indispensable part of their personality, get up and stature and to be true, it is! A properly maintained, the well-shaped beard is something that every man would treasure, and that’s not in vain. Beard has several purposes in a man’s life and in the years that I have zealously guarded and cared for my beard, I have understood that these purposes are not just petty matters but important enough to ‘make’ a man.
Adds to your personality
The first and foremost reason for men to sport a beard, whatever type it may be, is to add to his persona. It is the beard that makes a biker or a rapper look like one, a thinker/philanthropist to appear like one and a sailor seem like one. After all, what is Captain Jack Sparrow without his famous goatee and Hans Gruber without his neat, smooth beard! Enough to say that beard can make or break your personality and if you can find the right match for your face type and body stature, you are the winner.
Attracting the opposite sex.
Whether we accept it or nor, men always want to be attractive to the opposite sex (women) and one of the easiest way to do that is to have a beard that suits us well. It is a 100% truth that most women prefer beards (though in various forms and shapes) and beards do, in fact, as a turn on for a majority of women. So, just have the right beard and the battle is half the battle!
Weird as it may seem, but a nicely done, well-matched beard can give a great boost to your confidence (and your ego too!). When people, women as well men, juniors as well as seniors look at your beard, with approving looks, or even jealousness, you immediately know that you have something that people look up to, and you start feeling more confident about how you look and carry yourself. This impacts your behavior and body language, thereby making you more acceptable amongst people.
Enhances your looks
Apart from adding to your persona, a beard can also make you look different. When done right, a beard gives an impression of masculinity, strength, and firmness. It makes you appear broad and sturdy, giving an impression of a person to rely on and look up too!
Intimidating and mature.
In most cases, beards make a person look more mature and heavy weight, which often make people follow them or do as they are told.
Having a beard also has its health benefits. It delays wrinkles, protects from allergens, UV rays and also cold. It also helps keep the skin moist and youthful. Acne and razor rashes can also be kept at bay.
And to top it all, keeping a beard will save you a lot of time, time that you would otherwise spend shaving and washing. So, keeping a beard is a sure winner!
