In 2018 the Journal of Evolutionary Biology asked a group of women to rate men. According to recent research a good beard offers an equivalent of UPF 21. That doesn't mean you can ditch the sunscreen, but having a beard offers some real protection against the sun's harmful rays.

So while some will no doubt claim that men with beards are lazy those men will at least be able to pretend it's for health reasons.
