Two ways. First, you’ll look amazing in your trunks while water beads off of your face mane, like single tears of happiness, after taking a dip. Fair enough. But the other potential benefit is equally as high-fiveable.
Beards are like shade for your face.
Everyone assumes having hair on your face will bump your heat levels when the reverse is more likely. People rush to shave in the summer and grow in the winter. In reality, your beard is always your friend. It is a buffer from the elements. This “Beard Buffer” so to speak is basically like your beard taking one for the team so your face doesn’t have to. In the winter, it keeps out the cold. In the summer, it keeps out the heat.
Someone with a long enough beard could actually develop tan lines, proving this to be the case. Since the beard is not a fabric that collects heat without letting it escape, you’re in the clear. Enjoy your face umbrella.
Also, you’re a dude. A man. A guy. An hombre. The peak of masculine specimens. You have two distinct chromosomes, XY. Does it really matter anyway? Is it worth shaving off months and months of something you love? Nah. We bow to no apollo sun god. We Fear no Fahrenheit . We sell out to no Celsius. We…okay you get the idea.
So we’re keeping the beard. What now?
Make sure you are on point about washing the beard. Like with all parts of your body, your face sweats and you don’t want a smelly sweaty beard. Heat also plays texture games with your beard. So wash it with a good beard soap or beard wash and follow it up with a fancy beard oil after it’s dried. Then let it air out in the open.
Finally, if you are super concerned about the heat after all we’ve been through, in this article, feel free to spritz it with some water. It will evaporate and you’ll have a manmade beard air conditioning unit.
God speed you summer gentlemen.
