Happy International Men's Day 2021 from The Humans of Humanery

It’s International Men’s Day today, a day where we must celebrate the men in our lives and the positive contributions that they make to the world around us.

International Men's Day 2021 with Humanery

The Significance of International Men's Day

It’s International Men’s Day today, a global celebration of men, their positive values and the contributions that they make to the world. Many men all over the world make a positive impact on society, community, family, marriage, childcare and the environment every single day and we should all celebrate that.

A great part of International Men’s Day is also about focusing on men’s health and wellbeing, including their social, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing. For far too long, toxic masculinity, society’s expectations and traditional gender roles have stopped men from being able to talk about how they feel and take care of their emotional wellbeing, as well as their body image and confidence.

We’re glad to see that this is changing and that stereotypes about what’s considered to be ‘manly’ or masculine are coming to an end. If you’ve ever been told to ‘man up’ or heard that men shouldn’t care about how they look or feel, you’ll understand just how damaging these stereotypes and expectations can be.

Expectations on how a man should behave or look are changing for the better - more often it’s now about the individual himself rather than the traditional and outdated gender stereotypes that we’ve all lived with for far too long.

How Humanery is here to make a difference

At Humanery, we couldn’t be happier to see the notion of masculinity change as we endeavour to contribute towards it see it evolve further.

Beauty, Self-Care and Wellbeing is For Everyone

Humanery has come into existence to fill the space that men have traditionally been excluded from the beauty, self-care and wellbeing industry.

The options for men were limited, to say the least. Unless you wanted a basic, mass-market, general beauty product (think hair gel, a razor or aftershave), it was a case of buying products aimed at women, raiding your partner’s bathroom cabinet or going without.

We’re glad to see that this is changing and that stereotypes about what’s considered to be ‘manly’ or masculine are coming to an end. If you’ve ever been told to ‘man up’ or heard that men shouldn’t care about how they look or feel, you’ll understand just how damaging these stereotypes and expectations can be.

Men care about the way they look and feel. They want to use products that have been created with them in mind. They want to be able to build routines that make them look and feel great. They also want the same options and solutions that are available to women when it comes to beauty and self-care.

At Humanery, we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to take care of themselves, and to have access to the right products for their skin, hair and body.

That’s why we exist, and aim to build the definitive global destination for men catering to their self-care and beauty needs in one convenient place.
