Find out what's actually lurking under that beard.
BY ESTHER CRAIN
From thick mustaches to bristly beards, full-on facial hair is 2015's style trend for men. And not to totally scare you away from a guy who sports the lumberjack look, but his unshaven face might be hiding an unhygienic secret. Though the risk is small, chin and cheek hair can harbor germs that can cause icky things like herpes, fungal infections, or even a dangerous staph infection. Make direct contact with one of these bugs, and you may end up with skin issues of your own.
"If a guy doesn't groom his mustache and beard properly, they can become a breeding grounds for germs," says Debra Jaliman, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City. That's partly because the wiry hairs trap sweat, bodily fluids, even bits of food, all of which serve as cafeterias for microbes that may then be served up to you.
Another problem, Jaliman says, is that thick facial hair can camouflage symptoms of a transmissible skin issue that isn't directly related to the beard or mustache itself, such as redness that could be from yeast or a herpes sore. If he doesn't notice the signs, he could inadvertently transmit the condition to you.
Other things you can get from hipster facial hair include warts, as well as a bacterial skin condition called impetigo that leads to angry red open sores, says New York City dermatologist Diane Berson, M.D. "And of course, a bristly beard can cause irritation and a rash when rubbed against his partner's face, which can trigger pink bumps and chafing," she says.
But there's no need to force your guy to razor it all off—just take a few smart steps to lower your infection odds. First, encourage him to groom his facial hair right, which means washing it with soap in the shower at least once a day and inspecting it regularly (like after meals) to make sure no particles or dirt are trapped between the hairs. And before you engage in any direct contact with his unshaven mug, give it a quick once-over to make sure the skin around and under it is healthy, with no redness, bumps, or blisters. "Men aren't always used to taking care of body hair, and they don't necessarily clean it well," says Jaliman. Gross but true, so to keep your skin infection-free, follow due diligence.

By Daily Health Post Garlic has a long history of medicinal and therapeutic uses, from treating the common cold to lowering blood pressure. A study published by the American Cancer Association has revealed that compounds found in garlic may also be effective cancer-fighting agents as well. The study showed that “Garlic-derived organosulfur compounds such as diallyl sulfide (DAS), diallyl disulfide (DADS), and diallyl trisulfide (DATS) provide significant protection against carcinogenesis” by testing the reaction to the compounds in glioblastoma cells – cells of a common type of brain cancer. While there is a ways to go before these study results translate into patient care practices, the researchers on the study are optimistic about the results, and for good reason – there is copious compelling scientific evidence pointing to garlic’s ability to inhibit the growth of cancer cells, not just in glioblastoma but in multiple types of cancer. The Evidence “Overall, a host of studies provides compelling evidence that garlic and its organic allyl sulphur components are effective inhibitors of the cancer process” says one study from 2001, published in the journal Advances In Experimental Medicine and Biology. Another article from the Journal Of Nutrition attributes garlic’s efficacy in preventing cancer cell growth to oil and water-soluble allyl sulfur compounds found in the herb. A third study, published in the journal Planta Medica, looked at garlic’s anti-cancer properties alongside those of other fruits and vegetables. Perhaps most significantly, this study looked at dietary sources of garlic as cancer-preventing agents, suggesting that consuming garlic as part of your daily diet may be enough to slow the growth of cancer cells. Making Garlic Part Of Your Diet Garlic should be eaten raw to get the most benefit from it; while it tastes great cooked, the cooking process can destroy the enzymes that block the growth of cancer cells. It should also be as fresh as possible. When eating raw garlic, try dicing it finely and then letting it sit for fifteen minutes before eating it, to give the enzymes enough time to activate. Raw garlic can be incorporated into smoothies and other recipes; when uncooked, this herb has a distinctive, spicy flavor.

Turmeric is a popular spice, particularly in India, where it is added to many dishes not only for it’s distinctive flavour, but for its health benefits as well. In addition to being a food additive, turmeric has a whole host of health benefits, most notably it’s anti-inflammatory effects. This drink combines turmeric with several other health-promoting ingredients. Rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, this drink will help treat pain and inflammation associated with arthritis and other chronic pain conditions, as well as give you plenty of vitamin content for overall health. Orange-Turmeric Juice Recipe Ingredients 1 tablespoon turmeric 1 5 cm piece of fresh ginger 5 carrots 2 lemons 1 orange 1 cucumber Peel the citrus fruits and chop up the ginger and carrots. Blend all the ingredients together in a blender or juicer and serve chilled. For best results, drink this juice in the morning, half an hour before your breakfast. How It Works Lemons are a great natural source of vitamin C, which is good for the immune system. But did you also know vitamin C can also increase your iron absorption and lower your risk of stroke? All the more reason to make this drink a part of your daily diet. A strong digestive aid, ginger is used to treat multiple sources of nausea, including morning sickness and nausea from chemotherapy. Recent studies have also found that ginger has anti-inflammatory effects and can be used as such to treat arthritis and other chronic pain conditions. Full of Vitamin A, carrots are often thought to be the ultimate health food – and for good reason. The juice from these vegetables can prevent or slow the development of cancer, in addition to being a great source of essential nutrients. The real hero of this drink, turmeric has been recognized by doctors and scientists alike for its powerful anti-inflammatory effects, making it ideal for therapeutic use against conditions like arthritis. It can also be used to treat other chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia, and more minor conditions like heartburn. It is also effective against stomach ulcers and indigestion.
