Movember Australia – News – Saying goodbye to your Mo

Movember Australia – News – Saying goodbye to your Mo.

The thirty long days and nights of Movember have come to an end and the time has finally come to bid your moustache farewell.
But be prepared, experience has taught us that letting go peacefully is not always as easy as one would have originally anticipated…..there may be some kind of separation anxiety as it’s likely that you’re fonder of your facial friend than you realise.
What started off as a slightly prickly and awkward relationship has grown into one which you now rely upon. Your Mo has, no doubt, become your right-hand man; a constant in your life for 30 days that has stood by you through thick and thin, provided support at times of ridicule and confidence when it began to grow into its own and generate donations and conversations. With this in mind, we feel it our duty, to help you through this transition, to guide you through what might be a tough time for some.
Please read on and we’ll walk you through it.
  • Put on some calming music – Tunes that you and your Mo have enjoyed together over the last month.
  • Trim back any longer hairs with scissors or an electric trimmer.
  • Lather up generously
  • Start from the outside and work your way in.
  • Wash it down with warm water.
  • Remember he will be back next year.
Once you’ve stepped through the above, you can relax. Put your feet up. Pour yourself a drink. Take your time to ease yourself back into life with a shiny face. Take a moment to reflect and quietly congratulate yourself on a job well done. Though like all true gentleman, do this quietly, with humility and always after thanking those who supported you and those who made it possible. Most importantly, thank yourself for being a man of Movember, for contributing to men’s health, for being a modern gentleman and just for being you.
