If your dad is anything like mine, he probably doesn’t know the hottest new moisturizer, or the celebrity-favorite cleanser the internet keeps raving about. His skincare might consist of two or three items that he loves (chances are it’s a basic soap) and that he’s been using for years because they’re simple and “do the job”. But that doesn’t mean he can’t benefit from using a vitamin C serum or an exfoliating face wash.
In fact, more and more men (or people who identify as men) are interested in boosting their skincare, according to a recent study by Statista, and retailers are following suit. As a result, the men’s personal care market is expected to reach $27.5 billion by 2025. But despite this upward trend, it’s not that easy to convince dad to try a new body wash. . That said, we’ve picked out a few essentials that dads can incorporate into their skincare routine and diversify their arsenal, for Father’s Day and beyond.

Bevel Face Moisturizer for Men — $13.00
Bevel may be known for his shaving kits, but his moisturizer definitely deserves a spot in dad’s closet. Not only is it super hydrating, but it’s also a win-win for anyone with sensitive skin. The formula is super light and even has vitamin C and tea tree oil blended in to help cut the fat.
Disco Men’s SPF 30 Mineral Sun Block Facial — $28.00
If dad spends a lot of time outside, this Disco mineral sunscreen will be his best friend. The SPF formula is incredibly lightweight and provides great coverage. It also contains ingredients like niacinamide to help reduce fine lines and tripeptides (i.e. amino acids that help skin repair itself after sun damage).
Every Man Jack Men’s Hydrating Sandalwood 3-in-1 All-Over Cleanser — $11.00
When it comes to convenience, there’s nothing better than this body wash from Every Man Jack. It’s a shampoo, conditioner and body wash rolled into one. This way Dad can clean himself from head to toe in one go and feel like James Bond afterwards. The coconut-derived compounds and soy protein really help get all the dirt out of your body. Plus, it contains aloe and sage to help soothe and hydrate your scalp.
Urban Skin Rx Daily Exfoliating Face Wash & Scrub for Men — $12.00
Shaving isn’t always a clean affair (hehe). Sometimes razor bumps, ingrown hairs, scars, and rough skin occur. To help keep these issues to a minimum, this Urban Skin Rx Daily Exfoliating Face Wash and Scrub for Men is a must-have. It contains a high dose of salicylic acid, which helps unclog pores and slough off dead skin cells. Jojoba beads are also blended in to help exfoliate and soften rough patches of skin.
Nivea for Men Maximum Hydration Lotion – $6.00
The star of this lotion is aloe vera. For those prone to dryness, this ingredient is going to give your skin major hydration that will last for hours. This is because aloe vera is a type of humectant, a type of substance that attracts and retains water. The lotion is also safe to use on your face, which is great if you’re low on moisturizer.
