There's nothing like having a naked face once or twice a year to remember why you normally grow a beard (even if it's turning white at an alarming rate!) I swear I look 10x chubbier minus facial hair. I never had a strong chin, but at least having a beard sometimes gives that illusion. Now nothing hides my round double chin and the fact that my neck is wider than my head in several places. I have a new inner-mantra... "Grow, face hair! Grow damnyou!"
