It is important to think about the health risks of growing a beard. Perhaps you will break your jaw and require surgery. Mayhaps you will get a piece of soft cheese stuck in that duster that turns into mold overnight. The point is, you never know what could happen. So make sure you’re keeping that beard clean and safe.
By this point the beard shouldn’t be itchy anymore. You should have already fought through the annoyance. You might have even noticed a little beard dandruff when you scratched at it. If you did, hopefully you read our post on Beard Oil and have solved the problem with a few affordable products.
Another point to think about is: when do I give up. I don’t mean to be harsh but some of you men and women are just unable to grow a thick face blanket like our hero Paul Mara. If you look like Sidney Crosby there, it might be time to just call it a day. There are many other ways to support your team. Try baking a nice cake and painting their logo on it with frosting. Just a suggestion.
By this point you’ve likely made the decision to move on with your face blanket and you’re possibly attempting to shape that puppy or tame it somehow to keep your relatives and neighbors from reporting you to the authorities.
Regardless, happy growing and good luck. There are only 4-7 more games in the 2013-2014 season. Make ’em count!
