Facial Hair & Cleanliness
To Beard or Not to Beard?
With facial hair & cleanliness being a constant topic for discussion, studies have revealed that it was stubble that took the biggest knock when it came to the perception of one’s health and cleanliness; with patchy, light stubble being rated the lowest as it was interpreted as a sign that the wearer didn’t groom regularly.
That doesn’t mean that people found stubble wearer’s inherently unattractive. Many studies have found different levels of facial hair to be most attractive. But as far as the wearer’s perceived health and cleanliness go, its split between clean shaven or a full beard.
So, what’s it to be? When Noel Edmunds says ‘Beard or No Beard’ we think he’s clearer advocating the beard; but the Bard doesn’t discriminate, although the facts speak for themselves – the closer you shave that patchy unsightly stubble, the longer it takes to grow back and the longer it takes to grow back means that you are less likely to look like a ‘stubble bum’ before the next shaving ritual.
If you’re just starting out on your beard journey, then you might want to take a look at this – ‘How to grow a beard’ The seasoned or aspiring beadsman however, might consider adding one of the best beard oils of 2018 to their grooming arsenal.
Fed up with your beard, or just love rocking the clean shaven look? Either way; if you’re serious about your facial hair & cleanliness then you’ll almost certainly benefit from having the right accompaniments to that ever growing grooming collection.
Use a pre-electric shave to help tighten your face and condition the stubble allowing for an extra close shave! A good pre-electric shave will even help to lubricate your shaver, as would a good pre-shave oil where a more traditional shaving method is adopted.
