Statistics from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery show that the overwhelming majority of men believe that physical attractiveness contributes to success and power on the job. This certainly accounts for the fact that increasingly, men are upping their grooming regimen. In fact, once introduced to targeted results-oriented products men begin to see the importance of taking care of their skin. Beverly Hills Dermatologist Monika Kiripolsky says, “We have more men coming in for peel treatments for acne and sun damage. When they see how much better their skin can look, they come back for more treatments and get serious about a skin care regimen.”
Whether the man in your life has always been a soap and shampoo only guy—or is open to discovering the latest products and procedures—chances are he’ll appreciate that you care about his appearance and be receptive to you helping him up his skincare game. A youthful appearance can have a huge impact on his confidence level and help him stay competitive in the job market. Father’s Day is the ideal time to get him those targeted products and help him maintain that edge.
