Put down your razors and clippers, ladies and gents.
No-Shave November season is upon us! It’s time to grow your hair and spread some awareness.
The official No-Shave November movement encourages men (and women) to donate money (that would have otherwise been spent on shaving related products and services) to the American Cancer Society. The goal of the No-Shave November Movement is to grow awareness about cancer by embracing hair growth, which many cancer patients unfortunately lose.
Movember is championed by the Movember Foundation, which was started in Australia in 2003. The organization donates its profits to causes related to prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and other men’s health issues. “Mo Bros”, as participants are called, agree to grow a mustache to facilitate conversation about men’s health issues.
Barbers and stylists are stepping up for both causes by professionals are offering free beard and mustache grooming services during November. New facial hair growth can be tricky for the inexperienced, often being itchy and downright unsightly. However, with a little help from your local pros, you can help the cause while still looking your best. Your barber can recommend beard oils and moisturizers, as well as waxes, for your facial hair. The products will stop the itch, tame the barbs, and make you shine.
During the growing stage, you will need to use more moisturizers and deeply cleanse your face often. Intrinsics professional single-use products will help you achieve the best results for cleansing and moisturizing. To gently cleanse that new beard or stache, Intrinsics Gentle Cleansing Towels are an excellent choice; no overpowering, perfume-y fragrance and virtually lint-free. To apply moisturizers, serums, and oils, use our 2x2” Silken Wipes; completely lint-free and lightly absorbent, so they won’t soak up a lot of your expensive product.
No matter which cause you support by growing a beard or a mustache, you are doing your part in helping spread awareness about men’s health issues. So start growing and Intrinsics will be with you every step of the way.
