Okay, so maybe we didn’t already know about the “healthy” part, but we definitely knew about the Beardy McHotness factor. Personally, I always assumed all the world’s gnarliness got caught up in dudes’ beards, but I was able to get past that because…uh, hotness.

Now, I don’t even need to worry about beardstuff, because Science says, beards are healthy! According to a recent study conducted in Australia, those of you with a big face bush will be at least one third better protected from harmful UVR (erythemal ultraviolet radiation) than your non-facial-haired counterparts. In fact, your beard may provide a UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) up to 21, depending up SZA (solar zenith angle), and let me assure you* that’s as sciency as Science gets. Basically what they’re saying is, your beard is natural sunscreen, which you may have already assumed on your own, but hey — now Science says so. But, don’t think you can get away with that stubble shit — even if some of us do think the 5 o’clock shadow thing is hot — you’re going to have to grow a real beard, says Alfio Parisi, one of the study’s authors, a professor of radiation physics at University of Southern Queensland in Toowoomba.

“…it has to be a thick bushy beard and not just stubble.”


Sorry, Olyphant, looks like you’ll still have to grease up.

These guys, though? These guys are a-okay.

Olyphant needn’t fret about his attractiveness, though. According to a 2013 study,men with stubble are slightly more attractive than those with full, heavy beards. However, “Men and women rated full beards highest for parenting ability and healthiness. Masculinity ratings increased linearly as facial hair increased…”

So, there you have it — get your beard on boys. Science proves you should!
