No matter if you’re growing one for Movember or just to keep up with the mustache trend, proper grooming of your mustache is essential. There are so many different styles to choose from, it’s essential that they look their best at all times.
The initial step to taking good care of your mustache is trimming it properly. There are two primary methods for doing this – with scissors or an electric trimmer.
1. Keep it clean
Maintaining your mustache’s grooming regimen is the best way to keep it looking its best. Not only is this a beneficial habit to develop early in life, but it also makes managing household responsibilities much simpler. Adopting an organized schedule may seem tedious at first, but the end result will be worth all the effort! If your family is like most, there may be members with too much free time on their hands; keeping kids entertained and engaged should always be a top priority on any household task list.
2. Keep it trimmed
Maintaining your mustache in optimal condition requires regular trimming. Not only will this prevent stray hairs from entering your mouth or onto your shirt, but it also helps maintain the shape of your stache and reduces the chance of ingrown hairs.
Starting off, regularly washing your mustache helps remove dirt and debris that has built up inside its hair follicles. Doing this will soften these follicles, making it easier to trim them properly.
Next, use a comb to smooth the hairs downward so they lie even and straight. This will let you see the length more clearly and decide where to cut.
Once the hairs are combed and dried, use your beard trimmer to carefully and delicately clip away any extra growth around the area under your nose and along the upper lip line. This will ensure that your mustache blends nicely with the rest of your beard for a polished appearance.
3. Keep it healthy
Like beards, mustaches require regular grooming and care. Not only should you trim it according to your preference, but also keep it healthy by regularly washing, conditioning, and brushing it.
Mustache hairs tend to be coarser and follow different growth patterns than head hair, giving off an unruly and unkempt appearance if left unchecked. If left to grow without intervention, they can curl and poke out in any direction, creating the look of being unruly and untidy.
If you want your mustache hair to grow in the desired direction, regularly wash and condition it with suitable products like beard oils or beard masks. Not only will this promote healthier growth of the fur, but it will also keep it tamed and manageable.
Trimming your mustache weekly is a good idea to maintain its length and prevent it from growing too much, which could ruin its sleek and tidy appearance. Start by trimming only a little at a time, gradually increasing the amount you cut off each week until it reaches your desired length.
4. Keep it tidy
One of the best ways to keep a home organized and tidy is by setting aside space and time for cleaning and organizational tasks. A system that works for you will save you from having to sort through piles of papers or clothes, making your living room neater and putting your mind at ease. Organizing your daily life becomes much simpler when using this system. Implementing it takes only five minutes daily and the results will amaze you! Getting your family on board with the scheme will make your house a more inviting place to live. While it might take some effort on your part to get everyone into the habit, the results are well worth it: a clean house is sure to impress all your neighbors and any visitors that happen upon it!
