Father's Day Skincare Gifts He'll Love

Our dads are the ultimate 'dad joke' champions, masters of the grill, and shoulders-to-cry-on all rolled into one. But when it comes to their self-care routine? They're often not too well rehearsed. So, instead of socks or ties, why not give your dad the gift of healthy skin with our Father's Day skincare gifts? 

Whether your dad is a total beginner or a full on skinthusiast like some of our FTF HQ men, transform his skincare routine and help him achieve his best skin yet - after all, the gift of healthy skin is one of the best Father's Day gifts you could give.

Why Men's Skin Has Different Needs 

Men's skin has different needs to women's skin due to a mix of hormones, internal processes, and external aggressors. To understand men's skin better, let's take a look into what these are. 

Thicker Skin
Due to testosterone, male skin is around 25% thicker than women's which gives them a smoother, denser appearance early on.

Collagen Loss 
Compared to women, men's collagen depletes at a more gradual rate. This means that they are more likely to see fewer lines and signs of ageing until later on.

Men have more active sebaceous glands which can lead to oily skin and larger pores. This can ultimately lead to breakouts and makes men's skin more prone to acne breakouts.  

Shaving Stress 
Many men shave daily which can cause stress to their skin. This presents as shaving rash, ingrown hairs, irritation, and dry skin.

What Should A Simple Men's Skincare Routine Look Like?

Many men think that skincare is complicated, but it doesn't have to be. In fact, in just four simple steps, your dad can easily incorporate skincare and self-care into his daily routine.

Step 1: Cleanse 
Healthy skin is clean skin, so cleansing twice a day is important to wash away dirt, oil, and impurities. 

We love Votary Super Sensitive Cleansing Cream that works to effortlessly melt away impurities with its natural, calming formula. 

The cleansing cream helps to support your skin’s essential barrier function and is powerfully enriched with 21 super seed oils. The addition of oat extract along with its proven calming complex works to support and condition your skin.

Step 2: Exfoliate 
Exfoliating is a great way to fight off dullness, slough away dead skin cells, and prevent ingrown hairs. But frequency is key - exfoliating should be limited to one to two times a week to prevent over-exfoliating and causing skin irritation.

Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Brightening & Exfoliating Polish is an intensive exfoliating treatment that can be used weekly. Delivering instant benefits as well as long-lasting benefits, it helps to visibly improve skin dullness, dark spots, and uneven skin tone - all without drying your skin out. 

The formula includes three forms of vitamin C, which includes ferulic acid and vitamin C ester to accelerate your skin's renewal process and minimise the appearance of discolouration over time with continued use. Sloughing away dead skin cells and unclogging your pores from oils and impurities with antioxidant rich papaya and mango fruit extract. 

Step 3: Moisturise
Moisturiser is key to keep skin hydrated, so a good moisturiser twice a day will keep his skin feeling healthy, supple, and soft. 

We love mesoestetic Hydra-Vital Factor K A - a rich, moisturising and nourishing cream. The comforting formula helps to restore your skins hydro-lipid film, helping to reduce skin dehydration and increase elasticity and softness.

The multitasking cream also helps to ensure the protection of your skin against external aggressors along with free radicals that are responsible for premature ageing.

Step 4: Use Sunscreen 
A daily sunscreen is vital to protect his skin from harmful UV rays. Come rain or shine, it's a daily essential and should be applied every morning (and reapplied frequently throughout the day) to keep skin shielded.

Heliocare 360 Gel Oil-Free SPF 50 is clinically proven to protect UV rays. With its unique formula that contains advanced filters and a Bioshield System, it defends your skin by providing broad-spectrum protection against UVA, UVB, visible light, and IR-A (infrared radiation -A).

Enriched with Heliocare's Fernblock¬ģ¬†FC, the daily sunscreen contains powerful antioxidant activity and is supported by actives that help to repair sun damage (such as DNA damage and premature skin ageing).

It also contains anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and sebum controlling technology, which makes it ideal for sensitive and acne prone skin. But also, its dry touch, oil-free formulation is also perfect for normal, combination and oily skin types.
