Since I have been in beauty and writing about it, my dad’s intrigue in the subject and his interest in the products has been piqued. Now every time I bring home a new moisturiser or mask, he always asks me if he can use it. This got me thinking, of course, he can use a lot of the stuff that I use. Not the moisturisers and stuff, but I can definitely put him in a frozen sheet mask every now and then.
Father’s Day is here, so I thought it’s high time he got his own beauty stash and knew how to set his own skincare routine. Here are a few beauty things that I am getting as a first step towards having a 10 step skincare for the first man in my life!
We are always advised to scrub before we shave for a closer and smoother shave. Men need to do this too!
This would be the logical next step after you shave, but you don’t know how many people DO NOT go for aftershave skincare. Is your dad one of them?
My dad now knows that facewash is a separate thing and you shouldn’t be using soap all over just because it lathers up. Gift the man a face wash, maybe he’ll use it because you gave it to him.
See this was one step that I didn’t have to school my dad on. He has had dry and flaky skin forever. So he knows how important moisturiser is. Sometimes he does use the wrong one though.
Well, even women need constant reminding for this step so I don’t blame our dads. Maybe getting them to apply a moisturiser and a sunscreen would be too much but we could find him a moisturiser that has SPF right?
Okay, this is what I am most excited about! My dad has always been intrigued by the scary sheets I walk around the house with on my face. Maybe this Sunday during our quality time, I’ll pop one on him. What say?
Again a far-fetched idea, but I am planning on doing this when I am doing my #SkincareSaturdays. Get one for your dad, see how he feels about a masking night for the whole family! Honestly, if you just want to start him off, you could even get into your stash and let him try out a clarifying mask. And by letting him try I mean, you put it on him and see how he feels.
If your dad has a little bit of love for the fuzz, you know at some point he needs a beard softener to take the edge off. LITERALLY!
Is Dad sporting the lumberjack vibe? Gift him a beard care box with an oil and balm. Let him give his beard a little TLC. If his beard feels good, he might be in a good mood to multi-mask with you. You got nothing to lose!
If your dad like mine, doesn’t use ANYTHING special for the face, then you’re better off just gifting him a whole kit for father’s day. Start this shindig from scratch!
Get these products for your dad this father’s day and let’s start a #SkincareForPOPS movement. Who’s with me?
