HAVE ALLERGIES? -- For you guys with any facial hair, pollen and other allergens can get trapped in beards and mustaches, which can lead to more sneezing, sniffling, and stuffy nose. One way to minimize those symptoms is to wash your facial hair several times a day (or even shave it off) during allergy season. |
