Facial hair is a natural part of the human body, but the wearing of a beard is often regulated by societal and religious rules.

A trimmed beard gives a man a neat appearance. Keeping a beard reduces the hassle and irritation of daily shaving and ingrown hairs. Maintaining a trimmed beard makes facial hair more acceptable to employers and often to significant others.

Personal Freedom

A trimmed beard may also be a matter of personal preference. Beard growers can adopt trendy shapes or show their creativity through the manner in which they keep their facial hair. Once shaped, a beard becomes easier to trim, as you simply maintain the shape.

Healthy Skin

A well-trimmed beard can prevent clogged pores. Eating, grooming and contact between the hands and mouth can introduce pore-clogging dirt and oil to your beard and the skin beneath. Keeping your beard trimmed allows you to more easily cleanse the area and remove food residue after meals.
