Father’s Day: Men’s Beauty Essentials

Women are not the only ones out there who care about what they look like! And with Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s a great opportunity to treat your dad with skincare essentials.

What to choose?

In addition to being thicker, men's skin texture is also tougher. That’s why it needs special skincare products. Here at What Skin Needs we’ve listed top products that any dad would appreciate:


Cleanser: As your dad probably uses an aftershave, choose cleaners that are unscented. To get rid of dead skin cells and even complexion look for cleansers with gently exfoliating beads. They will soften, brighten and smooth the skin without irritating it.


Moisturizer: Go for lighter textures, such as Soothing Skin Gel, which are easy to absorb and don’t leave a greasy or sticky residue. To control sebum production as well as blemishes look for natural ingredients, such as Aloe Vera or Tea Tree oil.


Toner: A toner is often the product that men neglect from their routine.  One of the main reasons for this is that they simply don’t understand what a toner could be doing for their complexion. It can remove the excess oil, prevent breakouts, refine skin tone and soothe after shaving irritation. Choose water-based formulas to gently balance skin’s PH.


Masks: Perfect to use once or twice a week, depending on skin type. Ingredients that are beneficial for men include clay that draw out impurities, green tea extract to purify and Vitamin C to brighten the complexion.


Sun Protection: This is important step in men’s skincare routine that shouldn’t be missed! Make sure your dad uses it daily, preferably with a 25 SPF or higher.


Eye Cream: Formulated (highly concentrated) to be multi-taskers and address fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. Make sure your dad knows that when applying eye cream, the size of a grain of rice and no bigger than the size of a pea should do.
