Your dad spends more time in the bathroom than you do. He coifs his hair to perfection, spritzes the perfect balance of cologne on his neck, chest and body, and he likes his EVERYTHING wrinkle free (including his boxer briefs) – he is HIGH MAINTENANCE, PEACOCK dad. Often referred to as the gayest-straight man on the block.

What to get him for Father’s Day? Read on…

If you caught Dr. Philip Miller of Gotham Plastic Surgery on Good Day NY this morning, you know exactly what Brotox is…Botox for “the Bros” is the most common requested service among male patients.  Get your dad’s crows feet as wrinkle-free as his shirts. Call for pricing.

Maybe he gained your pregnancy weight with you….perhaps he has always coveted abs of steel like the superman he is. Whatever the case may be, Dr. Douglas Steinbrech of Manhattan Plastic Surgery for Men is the doctor to call. Get your man a gift certificate for the body he has always wanted with a Daddy Do Over by Dr. Steinbrech.  Call for pricing. 

He loves a close shave and only wants the best on  his skin – so get him just that...The Double-Edge (DE) Safety Razor by Baxter of California, SRP $250,  provides a close, comfortable shave, while top-of-the-line Silver Tip Badger Brush evenly distributes shave cream, creates lather and helps lift facial hair.

Bonobos might mean a chimpanzee with a black face and black hair, found in the rain forests of the Democratic Republic of Congo, but Bonobos (the amazing line of custom-made men’s clothing) is anything but monkey business.

Our fave for dad: The Foundation Slim Charcoal. This is the fundamental suit that every man needs on hand, crafted from the finest Italian Marzotto® wool, tailored for the most perfect of fits. It’s ideal for the workplace, but can do weddings and special events with equal ease.

All eyes on him…

Daily sunscreen use is the first line of defense in the battle against premature aging and wrinkles. Specifically formulated for a man’s skin, Kiehl’s is pleased to introduce Facial Fuel UV Guard SPF 50. This ultra lightweight and fast-absorbing formula is fragrance-free, water-resistant and utilizes Kiehl’s tried and true Facial Fuel energizing ingredients. In addition, the formula is clinically proven to provide superior UV protection.


Facial Fuel UV

A premier formula with clinically-demonstrated, dual protection filters  – A formula for the “sunscreen-phobic” man:

Formulated with the most effective filters on the market, UV Guard is a dual protection sunscreen, providing high protection from UVA rays (which cause 90% of skin’s aging-wrinkles, sagging, dark spots and discolorations) while protecting against UVB rays (which cause sunburn). When combined with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Caffeine in precise measure, the resulting formula offers 24-hour, shine-free hydration and is a superior formula for both the active and sophisticated man.

To meet the needs and demand of not only men in general, but to appeal to men who have previously refused to use daily sunscreens, Kiehl’s has developed a fragrance-free, lightweight, water-resistant, fast-absorbing formula that is not only effective but aesthetically appealing. As men tend to produce more oil than women, Kiehl’s chemists chose to include a combination of non-oily emollients for 24-hour hydration without shine. In addition, micronized silica, a finely ground mineral provides the formula with its easy application, allowing for quick absorption into the skin and an instant matte finish.

My man has been using for four weeks – he got carded tonight at a bar (nuff said, since he is errrrr….not under 21).

Heavy Lift

Facial Fuel “Heavy Lifting” Firming, Lifting, Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer for Men is a dual-action anti-aging formula to battle the aging skin of men.  This formula begins with a first, very important action – gentle, yet thorough exfoliation to clear away surface layer debris.  Utilizing LHA Exfoliating Actives to break away surface layer debris on men’s tougher, thicker skin, this step not only immediately improves dull looking skin, it allows for the second action – lifting and firming to occur more effectively.
