Phil recommends exfoliating your upper lip with a gritty scrub before you start growing a moustache. “Scrubbing gets rid of all the dead skin and allows your moustache to grow quicker,” he tells us.
Before you stop shaving your upper lip area, it is important to shave it well one last time. “Shaving properly is important so that when the hair starts to grow back, you can avoid patchy growth,” explains Phil.
“Since your upper-lip area is covered with hair, you may not realise that it is getting dry. Dry skin leads to irritation, so opt for a facial moisturiser (preferably an unscented one) to ensure that you aren’t irritating sensitive skin further,” he advises.
It is crucial to keep visiting your barber regularly while you’re growing your moustache. “Just like the hair on your head, you need to look after your moustache and keep it healthy. Visit your barber regularly to tidy up the area and shape the moustache well,” Phil adds.
To keep your upper-lip area clean and avoid infections, Phil recommends cleansing the area diligently. “Not only does using a cleanser keep the area free of infections, it also nourishes your moustache and helps it grow,” he tells us.
