TikTok Dr. Karan Rangarjan, is a surgical doctor and lecturer at Sunderland University. He’s now taking us to school on why beards could be healthy. For starters, they can actually help keep you cleaner and make your skin softer. This in turn leads to less chance of carrying bacteria on your face that could turn into something worse, like MRSA. The micro-abrasions you create from shaving are breeding grounds for these bacteria. A beard can also reduce the risk of sun burn which we all know can lead to skin cancer. So keep that beard, and know that you’re doing it for your health!
