Dr. Michael Moore with Texas E.N.T. says beards can keep allergens from getting into your nose and mouth.
The larger the beard, he says, the better it acts as a filter, and can help to build your tolerance to your allergies.
Dr. Moore says the key to getting the health benefits is keeping it clean and well-groomed.
Other recommended treatments include over-the-counter medicines Zyrtec, Allegra, Claritin.
A nasal rinse also works wonders too to flush your sinuses of allergens.
If none of that works, you may want to talk to your doctor about allergy shots or drops.
