In just 24 hours, you're going to come to a crucial point in your Movember journey. No longer constrained by your contract with guys everywhere to see this thing through, you'll have to decide whether or not to continue on with the new addition or go back to your old clean-shaven, slightly more predictable self. People have grown to accept the new look, but is it your new look for good? You have time to think. But not much.
It's Thanksgiving. That means your Movember journey is nearly complete. It’s time to relax with family, enjoy a good meal, and be thankful for the people around you. Please know that I’m thankful that you’re helping me spread the word about Movember. Happy Thanksgiving!
Go ahead and give that thing a trim. A neat and tidy moustache is just as Movembery as a crazy, unkempt stachesplosion that occasionally pokes you in the eye.
Thanksgiving is just a few days away. If you wait until you're seated at the table to learn how your moustache handles a large meal, you're just asking for trouble. Take a few moments and sneak one of the nice napkins, not a paper towel, and practice an effective, smooth moustache wipe. Get good at it. Because when Thanksgiving arrives, you're gonna want to wipe your moustache after every bite. Just because you can't feel the mashed potatoes doesn't mean they're not there.
On this day in 1969, the Apollo 12 command module returned safely to Earth. Check the number of astronauts with moustaches. Now count yourself in good company. If anything makes you look more like an astronaut -- other than a space suit and a functioning spacecraft-- it's a moustache.
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death among men. However, if prostate cancer is caught early enough, it is usually curable. But the thing is, in the curable stages, there are usually no symptoms. Talk to your doctor about a few simple screening tests you can take to minimize your risk.
Today's the anniversary of the founding of Denver, Colorado. There are lots of mountains there, and mountains mean moustaches. They just sorta go together like moustaches and flannel shirts, wool socks and moustaches, axes and moustaches or cowboy hats and moustaches. On this Denver Day, remember, if you're ever hiking in the woods, you always look more impressive hiking with a moustache.
For your safety, the following items are unacceptable moustache comb substitutes.
While you're checking out your new stache, try adding this pair of aviator shades to see what you'd look like as a TV cop. A real tough guy. A loose cannon who plays by his own rules, and always gets the job done. The kind of guy who wears a turtleneck with a blazer. The kind of guy whose theme song includes a waa-waa pedal and a saxophone.
Many things need moustaches. Not everything has moustaches. Change your world for the mustachier by adding lip rugs to items that don't really need them. Make your microwave manlier. Give your light switches a sense of rugged style. Instantly increase the masculinity and resilience of anything in your home with this sheet of printable moustaches as you help spread the word about Movember.
Moustache wax? Really?
A big ol' honkin' handlebar isn't really my style.
That's what you'll say. And here's what I'll say. While it does serve a pivotal role in holding a huge handlebar together, moustache wax can actually help anyone's face fern by creating a shinier, fuller appearance. Besides, it smells great. Kinda like wearing your own personal air freshener.
One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. The disease will claim nearly 30,000 lives this year. By raising awareness, you’re helping to lower those numbers. So when someone asks you why you’re growing a moustache, you tell them it’s not because of how it makes you look. It’s because of how it makes you feel.
Today is National Button Day. If you ask me, a man with a moustache has no need for a top button. His upper lip already says he's all business.
Each year, about 230,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Thanks for your efforts in helping to lower that number.
Today is Sadie Hawkins day, a day in which women traditionally ask men out on dates. Your burgeoning moustache is going to attract a certain kind of lady. A woman who knows what she wants, and isn't afraid to go for it. A woman who finds a man with a moustache attractive.
By now, you're probably starting to see some real results. Your stache is making itself known, and you've got a good idea of what you'll have to work with for the next 18 days. Enjoy the new you taking shape in the mirror, and don't forget to keep moisturizing.
Many of the same foods that help moustaches grow are also good for prostate health. Fruits, vegetables, lean protein and whole grains will help. So will foods rich in lycopene, like tomatoes and peppers. Adding omega-3 fatty acids (found in fish) to your diet can also reduce your risk of prostate cancer, as can foods rich in zinc like peanuts, dark chocolate and some seafood.
Today is National Book Lovers Day. Whether you're growing an unconventional yet precise George Orwell moustache, or leaning for more of the bold and boisterous Mark Twain, there's an author to match the taste of your face. Literary taste. Not the way it actually tastes.
Other authors who have worn a moustache include:
E. B. White
George Bernard Shaw
Gabriel García Márquez
More than half of them have won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Moustache coincidence, or moustache connection?
Don't make your moustache struggle in an arid field. Moustache hair can actually draw moisture out of your lip skin, making it dry and itchy. Remember to moisturize your face, paying particular attention to the moustache area.
If you want a rich harvest, you have to fertilize the soil. Eat food rich in Vitamin B, like turkey, whole grains, bananas, beans and even chili peppers. All protein helps grow hair as well. A turkey and banana sandwich on whole wheat may not sound appealing to you, but it's what your moustache craves.
Today is National Marooned Without A Compass Day. You're supposed to celebrate it by foregoing the use of compasses or GPS devices, to sort of get back in touch with your natural sense of direction. That's no problem for you. A man with a moustache always knows which way the wind blows.
If you're in a relationship, your significant other might be getting a little tired of the bonus burn with every kiss. Perhaps a bouquet of flowers might help smooth things over and get you through this rough patch. If you already brought them flowers as part of your Movember Shavings Plan, think of it as doubling down on your love.
Make your plans. Lay the foundation for your dreams. Take a crayon and draw a moustache on the mirror to help you visualize your goal. Visualize the reason your upper lip was put on this Earth, in this month. Don't draw the moustache you think you can grow. Draw the moustache you've always wanted.
Today's the day you establish your Shavings Plan. Think about how much you spend on razors, shaving cream, lotion, aftershave and little tiny squares of toilet paper every day. Since you're not going to spend that money on your face, you might as well spend it on:
Remember, you've got an extra three minutes or so every day, now that you're not spending it hacking at your face with a sharp blade in a half-awake state. Here are a few suggestions on what to do with that time.
Movember's already making you a happier, healthier person. And it's only Day Two.
