This June, we celebrate fathers – the men who have made an important impact on our lives. Whether the man you admire 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 four 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 if you’re spending a lot of time outdoors. Provide these men with an additional dose of moisture with the Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm, a balm that contains a Natural Repair Complex derived from rosehip and rosemary to defend the skin from environmental stressors.
You’ll find the busy dad with his hands full, either taking care of the kids, travelling to his next meeting or even both. These dads are juggling multiple responsibilities, 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 Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream. For travelling dads, 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. Whether he’s a stay-at-home father or works outside the home, all busy dads will find the convenience of the Charcoal Exfoliating Gel Cleanser appealing. This cleanser contains charcoal and malachite gemstones which draw out oil, dirt and other substances from clogged pores.
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. 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. Our Stone Crop Gel Wash and our Bamboo Firming Fluid are the perfect match for an easygoing dad’s skin care routine. For instance, our Stone Crop Gel Wash easily washes away impurities and minimizes the appearance of breakouts while providing deep hydration. Our Bamboo Firming Fluid firms and tightens the appearance of the skin. This formula is infused with natural ingredients like bamboo, coconut and a Natural Retinol Alternative that reveals a youthful-looking complexion.
This dad likes to look after his health and keep active. Make this the year that you leave behind boring standbys like socks and ties for exceptional gifts that boost his health and wellness. Whether he’s a gym-goer or training for a half-ironman, you can help keep his skin healthy with the Stone Crop Hydrating Mist. Stone crop is an ingredient that keeps the skin very hydrated and refreshed all day long.
