Sure, November is the month to indulge in fall flavors, football and Thanksgiving feasts, but it’s also become synonymous with men rockin’ mustaches.
Movember is an annual event involving the growing of mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide. The Movember Foundation runs the official charity event with the goal to “change the face of men’s health.” Since inception, the Movember Foundation has raised $837 million and funded over 1,200 projects in more than 20 countries.
And even if they aren’t fundraising, more and more men every year are unleashing their inner Ted Lasso and jumping on the grassy grin trend in November. And while most guys have no prob growing some facial hair, not all know how to properly care for it.
