L'OREAL MEN EXPERT & The Movember Foundation.
L’Oréal Men Expert is proud to support the Movember Foundation to help change the face of men’s health by raising funds and awareness to tackle some of the biggest issues facing men: Prostate Cancer, Testicular Cancer, Poor Mental Health and Suicide. On average, men die six years younger than women around the world and often for reasons that are preventable - we are determined to change this. L’Oréal Men Expert and the Movember Foundation together are committed to helping men engage in their health to live happier, healthier and longer lives.
L’Oréal Men Expert and the Movember Foundation also share the common values of helping men open up, get to know themselves better, have conversations and build up a sense of community.
Here’s how we support the Movember Foundation to change the face of men’s health with our top 5 tips on how you can get involved and make a difference:
1. Make man time.
Stay connected. Your mates are important and spending time with them is good for you. Catch up regularly, check in and make time.
2. Have open conversations.
You don’t need to be an expert and you don’t have to be the sole solution, but being there for someone, listening and giving your time can be life-saving.
3. Know the numbers.
At 50, talk to your doctor about prostate cancer and whether it’s right for you to have a PSA test. If you are black or have a father or brother with prostate cancer, you should be having this conversation at 45.
Know your numbers, know your risk, talk to your doctor.
4. Know thy nuts. Simple.
Get to know what’s normal for your testicles. Give them a check regularly and go to the doctor if something doesn’t feel right.
5. Move, more.
Add more activity to your day. Do more of what makes you feel good. Take a walking meeting. Park further away from the station. Get off the bus a stop or two earlier. Instead of the lift, take the stairs. Cycle to work instead of driving.
Join the Movement
For the month of Movember, men grow moustaches to spark conversations to raise funds and awareness for men’s health. Each year, conversations are initiated by the Movember community, face-to-face, online and through the media. These are conversations that: raise awareness and educate men and women of the key health issues men face; that change behaviour and prompt men to engage in their health and know when to take action. The moustache is a catalyst for change and gives men the opportunity and confidence to talk about their health with others.
