Movember, 5 Keys to Caring for Your Mustache
A mustache in November isn’t just about fashion, it’s also a symbol of support and raising awareness about diseases suffered by men. If you want to join the movement then we give you the 5 essential keys to caring for yours. So here we go!
1. CLEANSING AND SHAVING
To get the perfect mustache we’ve got to let our beard grow then shape it into the desired style. When it comes to shaving there’s a particular order that should be followed.
Firstly, we should get our skin ready, taking special care if it’s sensitive, as any movement against the grain could result in burning and redness.
With the skin clean we can lather the face or apply a shaving gel. Then, we begin by removing hair from the sides, neck, under the lip and, lastly the mustache area. This order allows more time for the gel to work on the areas where hair is most dense, making the shaving of those areas easier.
2. AFTER SHAVE
After shaving, rinse the face and pat dry. Then apply a small amount of the Après Rasage gel using your hand to smooth over the shaved area with a gently toning massage. Rinsing is not required.
Skin care before and after shaving is very important. But it’s not just at these times when we should take care of our beard. We should pay attention to it daily.
If you want your mustache to look cared for then we recommend using an oil to nourish and hydrate the facial skin to prevent dryness. In our Homme range we have a Beard Oil which is formulated with organic raspberry and rosehip oil to nourish and soften the facial hair. A combination which as well as preventing flaky skin, contains Vitamin E with antioxidant properties. Its gently violet color will also tone down any brassiness in gray hair, which can be caused by smoking.
4. FINAL TOUCH
For creative types the Homme range wax is ideal and allows you to wear your mustache with style. The versatility of its formula makes it ideal for mustaches, beards and hair. It’s a soluble styling wax with medium shine and gentle hold that, thanks to its aqueous texture and creamy feel allows it to glide on and be easily removed with water, without leaving any residues.
5. ALWAYS TAKE YOUR ESSENTIALS WITH YOU
It’s important to take your allies with you so that you can touch up your look in any situation. We recommend carrying a comb and beard wax, this way, you can comb and shape your mustache, reactivating your wax with a little water. If you like to look perfect absolutely all of the time, then don’t forget to take some oil to keep your skin moisturized at all times.
