So following on from our post on some of the most monumental movie mos, we thought we’d take a look at how you should be taking care of that new mo. We also thought we’d help spread the Movember word on men’s health and give you a few tips on taking care of yourself.
Shaving – Now it might seem easier to just let it run wild but this isn’t a Grizzly Adams appreciation month. Remember Movember is all about the tache, so keeping everywhere but your upper lip clean shaven is a given. How you shave all depends on your style of mo, but one thing is sure, a daily shave will really make your mo pop. If you’re going to do it, then do it right. We want to see that mo in all its glory.
Combing– It might seem a little overkill for something that you’ll only have for a month, but we suggest getting your hands on a little moustache comb like this one here. Your mo or even a beard for that matter needs just as much care and attention as your barnet. In fact, probably a little more considering that there’ll be a lot of food and drink in the near vicinity throughout the course of the day. Now as you know, we’re all about the suits here and men’s suits look great with a tache, but only if you keep it styled well which leads us nicely to our next point.
Products – There’s only one product for the serious moustache grower; the fabled moustache wax. Like we said earlier if it’s worth doing, then it’s worth doing right. So get yourself some of this Hungarian moustache wax and apply it once a day. Start off by putting a tiny bit on that comb we told you to buy. Then comb your mo lightly and slowly, you want to get a thin layer of wax on all the hairs, but you don’t want to coat the whole thing. Once you’ve got it looking smart leave it alone and only use the comb during the day if needed.
Your Gentlemen Parts
Now much and all as we love a bit of fun, there’s also the more serious side of Movember that is easy to forget in the midst of all this facial hair madness. The great folk of the Movember movement started this yearly event to highlight men’s health issues so here are a few tips to help you protect yourself and your most important bits.
As many as 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some stage in their lives so it pays to know what things you should be on the lookout for
If you have noticed anything out of the, don’t panic, just pop down to your GP and arrange a test. Even if you feel that you are in perfect health it’s always good to have a chat with your doctor about when or if you should have a test.
This is the most common cancer found in young men between the ages of 25 and 49 and like prostate cancer, there is a high success rate when treatment is started early.
Knowing the symptoms helps but understanding how to examine yourself correctly for lumps and growths is probably the most important thing you’ll learn.
November or Movember is fast becoming our favourite month of the year. We’re not big fans of the tache, but we have to say that it’s good fun to have a bash at growing one each year. Not to mention the fun we have in suits trying our best Clark Gable look, but looking more like Borat. Try to remember though that it’s more than just a bit of a laugh, so stay healthy and take care of yourself.
