"No Shave November" Has Surprising Health Benefits For Men
Are you ready to rock the facial hair this month and grow your beard or mustache out? Well, we have great news for you! No Shave November isn't just a tradition - it is a movement and it has many surprising health benefits for your skin. This silly event first began as a tradition of celebrating men's facial hair. But over time, the event changed and began to gain real purpose. Today, No Shave November symbolizes the promotion of men's health and aims to bring attention to important issues that directly effect men, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and the significant benefits of exercise and physical activity. Did you know that your beard can actually act as an all-natural toxin filter? If you suffer from breathing problems such as allergies or asthma, having a beard can help reduce your symptoms significantly. Your beard can trap particles like pollen and dust that build up in your lungs and cause irritation. If you nick your skin when shaving, the cut is exposed to all sorts of bacterial infections that can cause painful blemishes. By choosing not to shave for the month, you are giving your skin a chance to rest and heal. The blemishes will begin to disappear and your skin will start to clear up. Growing out your beard can also help keep your skin hydrated. Facial hair offers protection from wind exposure, prolonged wind exposure and cold air can lead to irritated, dry, and flaky skin. The hair also prevents you from over-cleansing your face and stripping it of natural oils, which serve as a moisturizer. What are you waiting for? It's time to put down the razor and celebrate No Shave November! With all of these incredible health benefits, you just may be tempted to keep that beard even after November has passed.
