Welcome to the first day of November – or Movember, for those of you growing your beard in support of this men’s health movement. Movember is a reminder to brothers, fathers, partners, and friends to take care of themselves, physically and mentally. And with good reason: 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in his lifetime, and around 15 million adults (6.7% of the population) are diagnosed with depression every year.
As such, this Grooming Artist Roundup is a selection of articles designed to make you feel good, inside and out. From the Art of Manliness guide to how to undo the damage of sitting (a must-read if you have a desk job) to the chance to win some fabulous wet shaving supplies via our Movember Giveaway, we hope you take a step back to enjoy.
