Father’s Day is a special opportunity to celebrate the father figures in our lives. Dads, husbands, stepdads, uncles and grandfathers all deserve to be treated for the important impacts they have on our lives. What better way to honor these special people than with Father’s Day gifts that encourage self care?
When it comes to Father’s Day gift ideas, finding thoughtful and practical options to show our appreciation can be tricky. After all, Dad only needs so many ties. Skin care products are a great way to help encourage the father figures in your life to take care of themselves. And products chosen specifically with men in mind make these options a no-brainer for brightening Dad’s day (and his skin). Whether the dad in your life is sporty, loves the outdoors, likes to take care of himself inside and out – or all of the above – we’ve got you covered.
A Simple Skin Care Routine For Men
Cleanser: Good skin always starts with clean skin. Between pollution, sweat, sunscreen and all of the other stuff that the day can leave behind, a gentle cleanser is one of the most important steps in any skin care routine. The Kombucha Microbiome Foaming Cleanser gently removes impurities without over-stripping moisture from the skin, making it suitable for all skin types. It’s simple to use morning and night, great for dads who are new to skin care. A pump of the liquid turns into a lightweight foam that he can massage gently into his skin in a circular motion, then just rinse and pat dry. Not only will his skin be clean, refreshed and healthy-looking, it will also be primed and ready for the next steps in his routine.
Toning and exfoliating: Even the most low-maintenance dad can benefit from this step. Along with unclogging pores and hydrating skin, the Pineapple Refining Tonique promotes a smooth, even-looking skin tone and visibly renews dull, textured skin. And if those results aren’t enough to get him excited about this step, the fresh scent of pineapple should do the trick.
Serum: Yet another step that will take Dad’s skin to the next level is adding serum to the mix once a day. Okay, ideally twice, but baby steps. The Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum is lightweight and easy to apply; just three to four drops on cleansed and toned skin should do the trick! This serum with two potent sources of Vitamin C – an antioxidant that can help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles – works for all skin types and will really level up his routine. It also contains avocado oil, citrus fruit and more leafy greens than he probably eats in a day. This powerhouse product will keep his skin looking plump, toned and refreshed.
Moisture and SPF: It may be the fourth step in the routine but this is the number one most important part of every skin care regime. The sun’s UV rays can be dangerous, causing damage to the skin. UV rays are also associated with aging, something Dad may be looking to avoid (even if he won’t admit it). Though we’re heading into summer, SPF is a non-negotiable all year long. Hopefully he’s been applying it for years, but either way, a fresh new tube is a great idea this June. And since too many steps in a routine can derail even the best of intentions, a skin care product that does double duty, like the Lilikoi Daily Defense Moisturizer SPF 40, is great for daily use and easy to re-apply.
If Dad is leaning into his new skin care routine and wants to amp it up at night as well, the Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream is chock-full of really good stuff, like antioxidant-rich plants, botanical peptides and omega-3 fatty acids. It multitasks on his skin while he sleeps.
Body Lotion: Now that he’s on a roll from the neck up, let’s focus on the rest of the body. Dry skin is no fun, and can be irritated by chlorine, summer sun, salt water and sweat. Enter: Mangosteen Body Lotion. Formulated with a unique Lactic Acid Complex, this lightweight formula gently resurfaces to reveal bright, radiant skin. Easily absorbed, this lovely lotion leaves skin hydrated and soft. Plus, it has a dreamy scent that Dad will love!
A simple skin care routine is the present dad didn’t know he needed. Making it easy for him to start a new self care habit might be the best gift you could give this Father’s Day.
