I’m pretty sure I’d pass out if I caught my father applying a face cream. The sarcastic, Brooklyn-born golf addict had to be begged just to use sunscreen wipes. And though my mother and I have gotten him in the habit of having a dermatologist check is moles, he thinks his 67-year-old face is beyond any anti-aging help.
This Father’s Day, however, I may just skip the usual book/shaving/shirt gift ideas of yesteryear and give him a manly moisturizer. The one I have in mind? Clarins Men Line-Control Cream.
Neither my father nor I are fools: we know he’s not going recapture his stickball days with a cream. But you shouldn’t underestimate what a product like this can do for even more mature skin. Enriched with shea butter, Line-Control Cream can easily comfort and soothe dryness. Meanwhile a medicinal Madagascan plant extract called paracress helps firm and rejuvenate skin with the help of vitamin E, caffeine, and various botanicals.
Knowing my dad, I’m sure he’ll raise an eyebrow-or a stink-when he unwraps his new face cream. But if he actually uses it, it’ll make me as happy as the little face illustration on the jar!
