Beard during summer?


Recommended Posts

 

  • Having a beard will now decrease summer insulation values.

So...does this mean it's good or bad to have a beard during summer? I'm assuming bad :<

 

Not sure. My long hair IRL keeps my head and back cool in the summer (While when you touch it, it feels like it's going to combust!). 

 

But since I don't have a beard, I'm not sure whether a beard would make your face hotter or insulate it orm the sun.

 

I myself need specifics, so this is something I would actually like to know myself.

IRL I usually grow a beard during the winter and shave it off in the spring.

 

For myself, a beard seems to keep me a little hotter in the summer and easier to get itchy. The summers here are brutal though, around 35-40c for about 5 months or so.

Our summers are the same, as are our springs, and our autumns... Basically, it's hot year-round 'til Winter here in South 'Straya.

 

And alright, I must have weird hair.

I'm in Asia, in the tropics, pretty much only 2 seasons here as well, kinda-winter and SUMMER.

 

I'm from the north though, I can say beards do feel better when you are exposed to extreme cold, extreme heat makes them quite uncomfortable, at least in my opinion.

Speaking as a person who lives in the part of Los Angeles (the North San Fernando Valley) that can reach up 105F/40.5C in the peak summer, it's best NOT to have a beard in the summer, and if you do, trim it short (and yes i have one and yes I do.)

 

Oh, and in the game, it is bad in Summer. They meant heat protection when noting "Summer insulation values."
