Father’s Day is right around the corner… have you picked out the best gifts for Dad? Sure, it’s common to get Dad “dad stuff” like outdoor gadgets and barbecue tools, but we believe in treating Dad to the gift of self-care. These little-known Father’s Day gifts will help show Dad you care, without breaking the bank!
Give the (Father’s Day) Gift of Facial Hair Care
Ahh, facial hair. Love it or simply tolerate it, facial hair, like beards and mustaches, can be everything from a point of pride to a “yeah, I’ll get to it later” ~Dad Project~. Whether Dad’s been maintaining a beard for his whole adult life or is just adventuring into the world of “manscaping,” it’s critical to take care of facial hair — and no, shampooing your beard with the same shampoo you use on your head does not count!
Simple daily facial hair care includes things like beard oil to keep facial hair nourished and bright. We like Johnny B’s Beard Oil for its beeswax formula, which is perfect for maintaining healthy, bushy beards. For a closer shave, we recommend Johnny B’s Beard Balm, which encourages moisturizing and growth. On the flip side, if Dad is more of a “shave and a haircut” kind of guy, why not treat him to a professional-grade barber kit? We’re big fans of this budget-friendly barber-grade shaving set from Scalpmaster.
Take Care of Dad’s Scalp
Another thing busy dads forget to take care of is their scalp — and with so many products on the market, it’s hard to know what you need for a daily scalp-care technique. That’s why we suggest making dad a “grab bag” for ultimate scalp care. There’s nothing quite like going from cheap grocery store shampoo (or worse, that all-in-one body wash, face wash, and shampoo concoction that dads seem to buy in bulk) to an effortless, lightweight routine that leaves the scalp itch-free and light as a feather.
We recommend pairing a simple shampoo brush to use in the shower with a cooling shampoo like this Peppermint Tea Tree shampoo from Manfix. And after washing, try out this CHI “Deep Brilliance” Scalp Protective Cream: the blend of essential oils and nourishing, moisturizing ingredients will leave Dad’s scalp feeling refreshed and comfortable.
Dad’s Face Deserves The Best!
While we’re on the topic of faces, let’s talk overall skin care. A lot of Dads — bless their hearts — think a quick rinse with cold water or (*shudder*) dish soap is enough for “daily skin care.” If that made you roll your eyes and smile, it’s time to treat Dad to a simple skincare routine he’ll actually use.
Simple is better when it comes to daily skincare, so we recommend something easy like this Miami Masks Daily Purifying Cleanser for Men. (The same company has a fantastic Mild Toner if it seems like Dad’s thing!) For more of an exfoliator, try out this Miami Masks Pre-Shaving Scrub or the Deep Cleansing Black Mask (called “The Crowbar,” since that’s just cool) from Manfix. Then, finish up with an anti-aging lotion that’s meant for both face and body.
At the End of the Day, It’s All About Dad!
