Ingrown hairs and bumps are dad’s least favourite surprises! Get him the ILUMA Intense Brightening Exfoliating Cleanser and tell him to use it prior to shaving to help exfoliate dry skin. This luxurious cream-to-foam cleanser exfoliates and refines skin with bamboo spheres and smart-sensing beads. Regular use will make skin softer and smoother overall. It also smells good thanks to geranium and orange oils that offer a refreshing, rejuvenating experience. Don’t be surprised if dad falls a little in love with this cleanser. It’s gotta beat whatever hand soap he’s currently using, and he definitely deserves some pampering.
The Clear Cell Salicylic Clarifying Pads can help prevent ingrown hairs by increasing cell turnover. Salicylic acid is generally used to improve the appearance of acne because of its ability to help skin cells shed more efficiently. Have dad use these portable pads in the evening to help battle ingrown hairs (and the look of blemishes, if he suffers from it!). These pads also contain glycolic acid as a key ingredient. It further helps increase cell turnover to unclog pores and keep skin smooth.
If you can convince dad to do ONE thing for his skin, let it be applying and using SPF regularly. Sun exposure can not only accelerate ageing, leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it can also increase risk of skin cancer. So SPF use must be diligent. Annoy dad with this fact often! Make it clear to him that SPF is the king of all skincare products. The Prevention+ Daily Matte Moisturizer SPF 32 is a great choice (particularly if he has more oily skin). It features a shine-free finish and primes skin to make it appear smooth and glowing.
Does Dad have dry skin? Try the Prevention+ Daily Hydrating Moisturizer SPF 30+ instead. It gives a dose of hydration while providing top-notch protection. It can be hard to get dad to use multiple skincare products, but with this, he can have both SPF and moisturiser in one bottle. Easy-peasy!
Maybe your dad isn’t so hard to convince to jump on the skincare wagon. In that case, feel free to treat him to some remarkable products that will keep his skin as soft as a newborn’s bottom. The Vital C Hydrating Water Burst can be applied throughout the day to keep skin thoroughly hydrated and looking supple. Its gel texture feels soothing against the skin, and will make it more likely dad will keep applying it. It’s like a burst of moisture! Hyaluronic acid and vitamin C (which is also an antioxidant) provide hydration and keep skin looking bright, respectively. Vitamin C, in studies, has shown an ability to help reduce the appearance of wrinkling as well.
Finally, get dad to take care of the delicate skin around his eyes. The Max Stem Cell Eye Crème will help him look more awake and refreshed, especially after a long day at the office. It features corrective peptides to target visible signs of ageing. Premium growth factors derived from plant stem cells also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which in turn helps eyes look more youthful. Dad is gonna look like a brand new man!
