November is here and someone has introduced you to the concept of Movember. Not the exact philanthropic cause observed by men throughout the word but the oversimplified version – don’t shave for a month. And now you are a Movember bro because its easy to do and now you have a valid excuse for looking scruffy. Anyways now since you have decided to do it, why not do it right. Here are a few tips for Movember Bros who are all new to this growing and keeping facial hair on how to get through the month without losing your mind and dignity.
First things first, understand what Movember is all about. Movember (The Month Formerly Known As November) Is A Moustache Growing Charity Event Held During November Each Year That Raises Funds And Awareness For Men’s Health. Read more about it at the official site here. Even if you do not donate at least know why you are doing what you are doing.
Invest in a good quality trimmer. Movember does not mean looking like a bum. Keep a neatly trimmed beard. A trimmer is anyways a good investment.
Around 2 weeks into the process the itching will start. Use a good quality skin moisturiser to counter it. Avoid using anything with alcohol as it will make your skin dry and beard hard which will result in more itching. If you want to go all the way get a specialised moisturisers for beards.
Keep it clean. Wash it regularly. You can use the same shampoo that you use on your hair. Pat it dry with a towel. Blow drying is redundant. When you have a thick beard, you will need to check it to avoid getting lint and food in it.
These tips should be helpful for all casual Movember bros. In case you want to get serious with this moustache business internet is full of amazing resources with the best being YouTube.
Happy Movember guys!!
