It’s finally November and you know what that means: store away those rusted-over razors and start growing some serious fuzz on that face of yours.

Movember, also referred to as No Shave November, has officially kicked off. And the motive is simple: for thirty days you cannot trim, shave, wax, manage with toe nail clippers, shape up with a worn-down machete, or even have your pet rat nibble down your coarse ends.

While the month-long holiday seems to resonate with the laziness of self-grooming, your lethargy will actually lead to good karma. Raising awareness of men’s health issues like prostate cancer and MS, sponsors will donate some serious dough all because you're making a solid effort to channel the Jesus look.

So don’t worry if your beard shows up in sporadic splotches - or if your upper lip becomes reminiscent of your ex-girlfriend’s pubes - because you’re saving the world one scraggly strand at a time.

Show me grooming tips I can actually use.

I thought there were going to be girls here...
