Many men take pride in being able to grow a full beard. They take the time to trim it and to maintain it, and even keep a small comb in their back pocket to brush it. It’s that important to them. Now experts are claiming that beards are infested with bacteria that can easily spread germs and even trigger infections.

The cuticles of hair trap the germs and grease. A beard acts as an insulator, so when you sweat the hair traps dirt and bacteria. Many men have the habit of stroking or caressing their beard and when they do that and later shake hands or kiss someone, they’re transferring the germs. Beards also act as a net and capture crumbs and food that falls from your mouth, potentially adding more bacteria.
