HOW CAN YOU HELP?
YOUR MOUSTACHE MAKES A DIFFERENCE So how can you change the face of men’s health? The answer is right under your nose.
1. SHAVE START GROWING Start clean-shaven on Movember 1, then let your Mo take the spotlight and start conversations.
2. GROW KEEP IT NEAT The first few weeks can be uncomfortable as your Mo takes shape, ignore the itching and sculpt your Mo. Remember, no beards, no goatees, and no fake moustaches.
