Here are our timely reasons why the time is now to go whole hog and grow that winter beard...

Skin protection

Scientific research shows that a full and thick beard can help block out up to 95% of the suns harmful UV rays, protecting your delicate skin from visible skin damage and the chances of getting skin cancer.

An extra layer

Your winter beard will act as a barrier of protection, a thermal and physical protection agains the elements. Not to mention the added comfort and confidence boost

Keeps the skin moisturised

Your daily face routine will likely wash away the natural oils that your skin needs to help keep it moisturised. Your winter grow will allow you to maintain healthier skin as you won't be constantly washing away the natural oils which keep your skin to feel energised.

Fit something more productive into your morning schedule, quite what is up to you!
