Why not ditch the tie this year? Father’s Day Wellness Gifts: Skincare for Men
When choosing personal care items to use after hot yoga, a session at the gym, or just for everyday cleanliness, read labels carefully. Choose grooming products that nourish the skin rather than leave a harmful residue on the surface of our largest organ. Here are a few faves that support health—and looking and smelling good—from the inside out.
Yuli Mr. Incredible Shave Oil
Mr. Incredible is an elixir crafted using the same methods as cold-pressing juice or oil. This allows for the most intact form of the active ingredients in the jojoba and grape seed oils to nourish your skin. As a beard oil, it absorbs quickly to add moisture to your beard and the skin beneath it without being too heavy. Added bonus: the blend of sandalwood, chompake (yellow orchid), and black calla lily, creates a scent that can be a stand-in for your cologne. This is one of the most luxurious, all-natural, and possibly most nutritional items for a man’s face and beard. $29 for one ounce; yuliskincare.com
