Movember Grooming Challenge

My wonderful husband! Yet again, I have recruited him to make another appearance on the blog. If I am being honest, I don’t really have to twist his arm too much when it comes to do things for my blog (other than taking pictures…that I know he most likely secretly rolls his eyes every time he hears “we have to take blog pics today!”)

But, when I asked him (aka told him) that he would be doing a post during November for the whole “movember” movement he was on board! The whole premise behind the movember movement-men’s health-is an important one. I don’t know if your husband/brother/father is anything like my husband, but it is like pulling teeth to get him to the doctor when something is wrong. Their health is no less important than our own!

My husband isn’t an old fashioned guy, and typically likes to use electric razors, even wet dry ones, so he can shower and shave (he gets up for work usually around 4:30 so anything to cut down on time is great). He has been using the Panasonic ES-RT77-S Arc3 Electric Shaver & Trimmer (say that ten times!). He likes it because it comes with a separate comb attachment for trimming the Movember mustache or beard, and of course he can take it in the shower with him to cut down on his morning routine!

I know a lot of men typically don’t care to really take care of their skin, but it is important! I feel like men think that they are less of a man if they take care of their skin- not true! I think most of us prefer a gentleman with good skin!

Here are some skin/shaving tips for the men in your lives:

~apply a warm washcloth to your face for about 45 seconds prior to shaving. That helps open up the pores, making for an easier shave.

~if you can, exfoliate before hand. That will eliminate dry, dead skin. That dead skin could potentially block the razor blades, making it harder to get a clean shave.

~Shave with the grain to start out- this will help prevent razor burn and ingrown hair. For a closer shave, shave against the grain (esp around the mouth/nose area).

~Splash some cold water on your face to help close your pores when you are done.

~It helps to apply and after shave or toner and then of course end with a moisturizer.
