This June, we celebrate fathers – the men who have made an important impact on our lives. Whether the man you look up to is your dad, husband, a father figure or even your grandfather – they all deserve the very best this Father’s Day.
Instead of buying him a stereotypical set of golf clubs, tie, or shaving kit this year, why not treat Dad to the gift of healthy skin? Every father is unique so here’s our take on three types of dads and our pick of Eminence Organics products tailored to suit his lifestyle needs.
1. The Outdoor Dad
The Outdoor Dad is always up for adventure. You’ll find him cycling, hiking, gardening or doing anything that involves a healthy dose of fresh air. Although outdoor dads are generally physically fit - the condition of their skin might tell another story. Constant exposure to the elements - like the sun, wind, water or snow - might leave their skin dry, weathered and often sun damaged.
To protect against UV exposure, a sun care product like our Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sport Sunscreen SPF 30 is an essential for these dads. After a day outside, our Rosehip & Lemongrass Soothing Hydrator for Face & Body is another must-have product to help restore and replenish the skin. This lightweight moisturizer contains a Natural Repair Complex to hydrate, repair and reduce redness caused by dryness, especially after exposure to the elements.
2. The Career Dad
The Career Dad is a busy man. You’ll find him rushing to his next meeting, braving rush hour traffic and spending plenty of time traveling from one airport to the next. These dads are generally no-nonsense, and they look for convenience and quality when it comes to their techy gadgets and even their skin care needs.
From balancing family life with early morning workouts and late night meetings, a few dark circles around his eyes are just a normal part of life. To combat tired, puffy eyes, we recommend our soothing Cucumber Eye Gel. For skin care on the go, our Bright Skin Starter Set comes to the rescue. Packaged in a convenient travel case, this set is a full skin care routine (cleanser, moisturizer, mask and serum) that fits perfectly in Dad’s suitcase.
3. The Relaxed Dad
The Relaxed Dad, is a laid-back, no-fuss kind of guy. He enjoys staying close to home and spending quality time with his family, walking the dog, watching the game, or reading a good book. Most relaxed dads prefer a BBQ with a few close friends over a fancy dinner, and they definitely want to keep things simple when it comes to their skin care routine.
When we think of products for relaxed dads, we think convenience and simplicity. A few of our multi-tasking products like our Citrus Exfoliating Wash and our Rice Milk 3 in 1 Cleansing Water are the perfect match for an easygoing dad's skin care routine. For instance, our Citrus Exfoliating Wash gently exfoliates and cleans normal-to-oily skin in one easy step. Fresh lime juice removes impurities, while grapefruit seed and silica leave skin appearing luminously clear. Our Rice Milk 3 in 1 Cleansing Water is even less maintenance, as it can be rinsed off or left on. This product cleanses and tones in one step, leaving skin hydrated, pores minimized and the appearance of aging minimized.
