Men’s shoes and men’s pants are the latest fashion trends to be a hot topic.
But a new study finds that even those with a little bit of a beard can still look like they’re not wearing their best.
Researchers from the University of British Columbia say facial hair is often a distraction from the basics of their lives.
They say facial beard-less men may not be aware of the importance of keeping their grooming routine in order, and that if they don’t shave it may be harder to maintain a clean appearance.
The study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, looked at the habits of 803 men and women from different cultures.
Participants were asked about how much time they spent grooming their facial hair and how often they shaved.
They were also asked to rate their attractiveness and grooming skills.
The results showed that men who had facial hair tended to be more attractive and skilled in grooming compared to those without facial hair.
But they also had more issues maintaining a clean, groomed appearance, which led to more negative thoughts.
In general, the study’s authors say, men with facial hair had the most difficulty maintaining their appearance.
But not everyone agrees with the study.
The American Academy of Dermatology, a trade association for dermatologists, says it is important for men to maintain their facial grooming.
“Facial hair is a great way to look and feel good,” said Dr. Jonathan Kallos, the association’s president.
“It’s a great addition to our grooming routine.
The fact that we have so many options for grooming is really exciting.”
But a few studies have found that beard removal can be effective in reducing the appearance of facial hair in men.
In one study, researchers from Harvard and the University at Albany found that men with mild to moderate facial hair who shaved had significantly less facial acne than men with more hair on their faces.
They also found that facial hair reduction was associated with a decreased risk of depression and anxiety.
Kallos said the research may not show a clear correlation between facial hair removal and decreased acne, but it does show that removing facial hair can help men.
“What it shows is that there is something going on in your brain that is working against your hair, and it’s not the beard itself,” he said.
“When you look at the research on facial hair it’s clear that shaving can actually improve your appearance, but the problem is it’s often not visible to the naked eye.”
