Let’s take a look at three great gift ideas for any man who takes care of himself…
A luxury skincare gift – Moisturizer
Men’s best moisturizer is one of a modern gentleman’s bathroom staples, so where are there so many myths about it? These ideas are both surprising and strange, and they might give you pause to think – or laugh – about your own grooming products and where they come from.
Men’s moisturizer is a relatively new idea, so it seems strange that so many stories and myths have grown up around it already. The good news is, in reality, moisturizer for men is safe, effective, and even essential.
The first myth is that all men’s moisturizers are the same, and it doesn’t matter which one you buy. Not so! There are many different types of moisturizers available, and each one works differently, depending on why you want to wear it. They differ depending on your skin type as well. Because there are a number of different varieties of men’s moisturizer the easiest way to choose one is to work on skin type. So, make sure you consider this when buying for someone else.
Another myth is that your skin can become reliant on moisturizer, so you shouldn’t use it too much. Wrong again! Skin can’t become dependent on moisturizer, and you should use it as much as you need to within your male grooming regimen. Yet another myth suggests that if you use a moisturizer with sunscreen in it, you don’t need to worry about anything else. Not necessarily. Ideally, you need an SPF of 30 or higher, so if your moisturizer has a lower SPF than that, you’ll want to top up with sunscreen.
Moisturizer is a must for all men, and there are places like letsdisco.co that sell natural products, including men’s face masks, which would make great gifts.
A luxury home gift – An inflatable hot tub
An inflatable hot tub is ideal for anyone who wants to benefit from the luxurious feeling of sitting in a hot tub yet does not want to commit to having one permanently installed. This is also the most cost-effective solution, and also a great gift. With that being said, read on to discover how to find the best portable hot tub.
One of the most important aspects to consider is the size of the hot tub. You will tend to find that portable hot tubs are smaller than permanent ones. In most cases, these hot tubs will only hold around two people. However, if you do a little bit of digging online you should be able to find some that hold around six people.
Aside from this, the cleaning of the hot tub is another aspect to bear in mind. Some units can be challenging to clean, and this is why you need to read the description carefully. The material the hot tub is made from will determine what cleaning method is used, and there are some units that come with the added benefit of a clean filtration system.
You may also want to consider the safety features of the hot tub, as some come with special no-skid flooring or seating. A lot of units now have locking lids and a maximum heat capacity that ensures users do not scald their skin.
Finally, energy use is a critical factor. The heating mechanism won’t need to work as hard if the unit has thicker insulation, and thus this will reduce energy consumption.
A luxury hair care gift – Boutique pomade
Pomade is great at giving hair a sleek appearance without making it look too greasy or wet; it is soft and light and dries to a firm hold that will give any man an edge when it comes to styling.
Men’s hair products have different uses and applications depending on the look you want to achieve, and your hair type. Pomade is great for all hair types. The easiest and most successful way to apply pomade is for your hair to be just damp. It’s certainly possible to apply the hair product to dry hair, but it’s less malleable and harder to style if you do, and if your hair is too wet then the oils won’t hold and won’t help. Almost dry hair is the optimum for this type of male grooming.
It’s best to start with a small (10p sized) dab of pomade and add more if required; using too much can give a greasy effect to your look which is then tricky to wash out, especially if the pomade you are using is oil-based rather than water-based. Next, using both hands, massage the product right into your hair. The action should be as though you’re washing with shampoo. Then you can comb it smoothly; add a little more pomade to your parting to keep it in place.
As this product is easy to use but different from the norm, it makes the perfect gift for any style-conscious man.
