It’s Movember, when men all over the world grow out their moustaches in support of the annual November fundraising event to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s suicide.
It can be an uncomfortable time for some guys who aren’t used to having facial hair, as growing a moustache can sometimes irritate the skin, leaving the area itchy, painful and dry.
If you’re still growing out your whiskers for Movember, there are many ways to keep the hair well-groomed and moisturised, and the skin, clean, lubricated and itch-free. Try these products and services for a start.
