I’m sure you’ve Googled at some point at least one thing with #BEARD and CORONAVIRUS in one sentence in the recent weeks, we have and there is no surprise that there has been all manner of theories regarding Grooming.

On social media we’ve seen lots of new hashtags with the #QuarantineBeard with one our favourite Comedians Jim Carrey putting down the razor until "we all go back to work," encouraging his Twitter followers to join him. 

But there’s been some concern about the beards amongst us, and if we are at further or greater risk than those without. “The mere presence of facial hair won't put you or others at risk”, says Dr. Amesh Adalja, an infectious disease specialist.

"There's no evidence that having a beard per se makes you more or less vulnerable to the coronavirus," says Adalja, a senior scholar with Johns Hopkins University's Centre for Health Security. 

If you’ve sneezed and subject to some #facedribble then the same would apply.

The more experienced among us know that a poor #grooming routine is no different to any other matter of personal hygiene as Adalja warns, “a beard could trap debris from coughs and sneezes, potentially infecting other people in close contact”.

If you’ve sneezed into your hand, you’d wash it, if you’ve sneezed and subject to some #facedribble then the same would apply. The problem for us arises with the consequence of over washing – DRY SKIN.

Dry skin generally occurs under your beard when you wash your face with harsh cleansers or regular soap. These products keep your face and beard clean, but they also remove any oils on your skin or beard hair that keep them from drying out, just as it would with the over use of hand cleaning products.

The solution. A regular and daily routine of replacing those lost oils. Natural oils, like the ones your skin produces, keep your skin from getting dry and act as antimicrobial barriers. But when you wash your natural oils away in an effort to scrape off dead skin or use anti-dandruff chemicals, you need to replace them.
