NOW we know why ZZ TOP is still alive and kickin'.
A new study out of the University of Southern Queensland in Australia has found that a big secret to being healthy is . . . a BIG, SEXY BEARD. Here's why . . .
#1.) Beards protect your face from the sun. Men with beards . . . or bearded ladies in carnivals . . . are exposed to 30% fewer UV rays on their faces.
#2.) Beards can trap allergens that might cause asthma attacks.
#3.) They keep water from leaving your skin, which keeps it moisturized . . . and makes a person's face AGE more slowly.
#4.) They raise your neck temperature, which helps fight colds.
