Throughout Movember, MR. PEANUT and JVN are taking to social media to shell out advice for the men’s health movement and striving to bring more openness to the men’s health discussion. Three Movember participants video chatted with the legume and hair guru to get tips on how to properly grow moustaches, keep themselves groomed throughout the month and maintain their best selves.

“MR. PEANUT is excited to support the Movember cause again this year and help bring more openness to discussions around men’s health,” said Samantha Hess, brand manager for PLANTERS. “As a grooming expert, moustache enthusiast and advocate for body positivity and care, Jonathan is truly the perfect partner for MR. PEANUT to enable discussions around men’s health.”

“My mission in life is to help people feel amazing inside and out—and that means giving TLC to your gorgeous self, from your moustache to your health,” said Jonathan Van Ness. “I’ve always been nuts about PLANTERS so supporting this meaningful Movember movement with the legendary MR. PEANUT is the dream.”

“As the leading men’s health charity dedicated to changing the face of men’s health, Movember understands the importance of making men feel more comfortable about discussing their health,” said Mark Hedstrom, US Country Director of Movember. “Working with MR. PEANUT and Jonathan Van Ness will help us support Mo Bros everywhere to take action to live happier, healthier and longer lives.”
