There’s no question that, now more than ever, men have gotten more open to pampering themselves. They’ve begun to discover the perks of grooming products and services (something we women have known all along!). But many dads are reluctant to indulge themselves with a rich moisturizer or scrub….or, they might be a bit confused about the array of options out there and what each can do. Whether pampering your Pop or beautifying your Beau, check out my favorite picks of cosmetic services and products specifically designed to meet every man’s needs.
Brotox– Neck ties, move over! This year, the hottest gift for dads is “Bro-tox”! It’s true! There’s been an astounding 56% increase in the number of men getting this cosmetic treatment; in fact, the 2011 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report says it’s now the single most common cosmetic surgical procedure among men. It’s gotten so popular among males that the term “brotox” now appears in the online Urban Dictionary!
Kyoku for Men Daily Facial Cleanser – Personally, I love the Kyoku line for men. The scent is both masculine and sexy, and the results are smoother, tighter skin. Beginners should start with the Basic Facial Cleanser that promises to wash off grime and promote skin cell regeneration. A bonus: it even combats post-shave inflammation!
Baxter After Shave Balm- The well-groomed man will want to be introduced to Baxter. This west coast line is designed to provide men with intelligent skincare solutions, tackling all the challenges of shaving, cleansing, anti-aging, and other basics. If your man already moisturizes, opt for
Baxter’s TSA approved travel kit. It’s perfect gift for the man who has everything!
The Dad in your life may seem like a difficult customer to shop for, but my guess is he’ll appreciate a deviation from the standard necktie this year…along with the opportunity to put his own best face forward!
