When I came to the United States 31 years ago, most men were not that interested in skincare. They would use what their partners used or gave them, and a facial was not something they would ever consider. Things have definitely changed since then, and more and more men understand the benefits of taking care of their skin and appreciate products and treatments that work for their particular needs. Many come in for treatments as well.
I love giving people gifts that they may not get for themselves, but that they appreciate and use. In that spirit, I have gathered some of my favorite products that are great for dad’s face and body to celebrate Father’s Day.
Environ Botanical Infused Sebu-Wash Gel Cleanser
Men tend to prefer matte over shiny when it comes to skin. This mattifying foaming face wash is formulated with a combination of ingredients that assist in washing away dirt and excess surface oil that may aggravate the appearance of blemishes, leaving the skin feeling refreshed and clean.'
Biologique Recherche Lotion p50v 1970
This iconic gentle, balancing, vitamin-rich exfoliator tones the skin. This product contains Phenol, AHA and BHA (which all work to exfoliate), magnesium chloride, which helps to purify, and the PP vitamin, which works as an antioxidant. It also aids in the prevention of ingrown hairs.
Biologique Recherche Gel ADN Silkgen
This cool, revitalizing gel tones and softens skin. A subtle treatment composed of salmon DNA, which preserves the moisture level of the epidermis. It also contains silk proteins, which is a source of restructuring amino acids. It is also excellent to add extra hydration and anti-aging properties to any cream. I recommend this as an aftershave and it is great under moisturizer.
Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream
An intensely luxurious, super hydrator that stimulates the skin's natural processes of rejuvenation to dramatically improve the complexion's appearance. The patented Trigger Factor Complex, TFC8® works to stimulate the body’s own stem cells.
The Spongellé Men's Extreme Buffer
This all-in-one body treatment cleanses, scrubs, and hydrates. With the invigorating scent of bergamot absolut in an invigorating scent of bergamot enriched with a blend of energizing extracts including cayenne pepper, the multi-tasker will help skin feel smooth and clean after a long day.
