Beards - Getting Spots


i thought since most of us powerlifters for some reason think it is very cool for a man to have a beard(all non-powerlifters dont agree but we dont give a ****)....i always try to grow a beard but every time the hairs get to a certain length i start getting spots. they usually disappear a few hours after i shave. any one suffer from this problem?? and or know how to solve it...coz i want to get my J.pegg/Wendler look on...ive heard of razor burn but that is usually after shaving not before :S 10x




fuck yeah, ive thought the same thing. I think you really have to get past that uncomfortable mid-point and it gets better. but i usually get too uncomfortable and feel gross so i have to shave. good luck


Sounds like you are talking about irritation from the hairs rubbing? yeah, once it gets longer that stops.


U sound like a pussy, man up if you want a beard. I had my winter beard on from thanksgiving till this morning. itches like a bitch at first, then it gets good.


If you are worried about a few spots you do not deserve a beard.


wow....so now anyone who doesnt want to have spots on his face doesnt deserve a beard? i just love keyboard courage!!!


Once you have a beard long enough you won't be able to see the spots anyways... Just grow it out and you'll get used to it and it will just feel normal.


I thought this thread was going to be about:

1 - Should I ask a guy with a beard for a spot?

2 - If you have a beard, do people often as you for a spot?


I like my beard because sometimes I get food stuck in it and it's like a snack when I find it later and I'm always stoked. Other times I get cocaine stuck in it and when I find that later it's party time all over again


Um well yes. Isn't that what I just said?

By the way, in response to your next thread, based on your photo I would say you need to cut first.




ok GCF...u are right...im a pussy,i shouldnt have a beard and i should start cutting firts...should i include bosu ball squats and tricep kick backs? wow u must feel great about winning an argument via web


When did I call you a pussy? Why are you getting so worked up about a silly innocuous comment from someone you don't know?

To settle this matter I recommend you go and wash your face with a warm damp cloth to remove your stubble and moisutrize with that nice stuff that Natalie Portman advertises, she has lovely skin.

Good luck.
