However, the hairy upper lip can actually help the healing process.
The South Korean sports team is working hard to raise awareness of men and mental health issues.
The Otago Bolt Cricket Team is cutting off a mustache to help raise money for the Mental Health Foundation, and a southern UN boys team is collecting funds for men's health as part of the Movember cause.
The Otago cricket team hopes that a humble mustache growing through the campaign during the day can help raise awareness of mental health problems.
The fast-breed, Michael Rae, said the team wanted to do a positive job for the community and had a mustache.
"Young people have decided to grow a mustache in their one-day campaign.
"So we decided to try and use it to raise money for the New Zealand Mental Health Foundation.
"We chose charities because mental health is important to everyone, but in cricket and sports, performance, scarring, or falling stress can actually increase our weight and affect our grades."
The fund-raising campaign was called "Mo-dayers" and Rae said people could give it through the Givealittle page.
The team set loose goals, such as collecting $ 3,000 for five weeks of the tournament.
"Most people are good players.
"However, we have adopted a team policy that allows us to donate a certain amount and deselect it if there is some pressure from the wife and girlfriend at home."
Southern United is also raising funds for the cause of Movember and has raised $ 1,770 to date, far less than the $ 2000 target.
