Yes! According to a study, in the mid-Victorian period, doctors prescribed men to wear beards as a means to ward off illness and common ailments such as sore throat since they were thought to act as natural air filters. A thick beard, it was reasoned, would capture the impurities before they could get inside the body.

 

Apparently, beards were not that prevalent before the mid-1800’s of Victorian era. Safety razors had arrived in the 1700 and all the rage of clean-shaven faces had picked up.



By mid-Victorian period, however, beard came back into fashion. The period known as the age of exploration, of hunters, climbers, and explorers caused a change in the ideals of masculinity and people started to imitate the great explorers and adventurers who were known to have beards.
