Father’s Day has been and gone, and while we know most fathers didn’t mind the ties, golf balls, socks and jocks they received, isn’t it about time they were introduced to this amazing world of skin care and beauty we all know and love? Here are 5 products we’re guessing some dads wouldn’t have heard of before, but that we both know he needs.
1. The Facial Scrub
Baxter of California Facial Scrub
A facial scrub needs to be much more than just a bar of soap, unless you’re talking about an Erno Laszlo bar of soap. With natural ingredients like honey and lavender, this gentle scrub will buff away a hard day’s work and can even be mixed with a face wash as a pre-shave treatment to help prevent ingrown hairs.
2. A Brightening Serum
Anthony Logistics High Performance Vitamin C Serum
You may have to pitch this as something other than a “brightening” product, but the benefits of vitamin C are something that men shouldn’t miss out on. Its ability to protect the skin against environmental aggressors as well as stimulate collagen production helps deliver a healthier and more youthful look.
3. Moisturizer + SPF Combination
Game Day Skincare Moisturizer Hydrator Plus SPF 30
Getting anyone to wear sunscreen each day is difficult enough, but this combination facial hydrator and sunscreen has made it easy. Rarely will you get such a quality moisturizer with SPF as high as 30 like you do here. Plus, it’s nongreasy and has a very earthy and fresh scent, so he will not be discouraged.
4. The Anti-Ager
Menscience Androceuticals Anti-Aging Formula
We’re all about aging gracefully, and one of the best ways to do this is with retinol and peptides. These are two of the star ingredients of any anti-aging product, and they’re both found in this treatment formula, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while firming for a more toned texture.
5. An Eye Cream
Jack Black Eye Balm Age Minimizing Gel
The skin around our eyes is the most delicate skin on our entire bodies—man or woman—and needs our constant attention. Packed with vitamins, nourishing botanicals and hyaluronic acid, this lightweight gel is able to help clear dark circles while diminishing the appearance of unsightly crow’s-feet.
