Movember is here! WTH is that, you say? Since 2003, Movember has been creating mustaches around the world every November to raise awareness of men’s health issues like prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide. At MagicLinks, we’re well aware of the health issues that those who identify as male face and we love that Movember is doing it’s part to spread the word. Want to to do your part in spreading the word? Here are some top trends to keep in mind for your content all Movember long.
YOUR CONTENT: WHAT TO KNOW
Besides annual check-ups, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of family history of cancer and to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Since inception, the Movember Foundation has raised $837 million and funded over 1,200 projects in more than 20 countries.
Keep the men in your life top of mind with audiences this month. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to take a toll on all of our mental and physical health, and our men deserve a special shout out. Healthcare disruptions caused by the pandemic have played a role in delaying potentially life-saving conversations for those experiencing testicular and prostate cancer. You can do your part by sharing your insights throughout the month.
TOP TRENDING MOVEMBER PRODUCTS FOR MEN
We here at MagicLinks honor our men and want them to be healthy and happy. You can support the men in your life by encouraging them to stay on top of their regular medical check ups. Some men may be nervous or even embarrassed to see their doctor, but assure them that it’s completely normal and necessary. Various hygiene and beauty products can play a role in mens overall health. So we’ve broken out our top picks to keep in mind this Movember.
Of course, we’ll need to take care of that beautiful ‘stache. Birchbox is woman-run and has strong sustainability commitments. They have great monthly subscription options and also a dope Billy Jealousy Beard Envy Kit.
For the rest of the hair on our men’s heads, we turn to Bumble and Bumble. Their cruelty-free products will keep men’s hair shining and harmful products off their precious heads. Check out their top selling Sumo Styling line.
THAT FACE THO
Next up: moisturizer! We use BareMinerals’ Smoothness Bare Haven Soft Moisturizer and think our beloved men should too. Added bonus: BareMinerals donates 1% of purchase to community organizations and has raised $1.35 million to date. They also have a vegan SkinLongevity Serum that you both can share!
Aveda is amazing overall simply for the quality and breath of their product offerings. We respect them even more because they practice responsible manufacturing, have reduced packaging, work with the community and all their products are 100% vegan. Their incredible men’s line of skin and hair care products is impressive to say the least. Especially the invati men’s system, which exfoliates, thickens and revitalizes thinning hair.
For those nights our men aren’t taking care of themselves and wake up with puffy eyes, Clinique has got our backs. Their men’s skin and haircare line is free from parabens, phthalates, and fragrance. Look into their Clinique For Men Super Energizer™ Anti-Fatigue Depuffing Eye Gel and their Clinique for Men™ Anti-Age Eye Cream this Movember.
