A Busy Dad’s Guide to Skincare: Myths, Facts and Recommendations

As Father’s Day is drawing closer, the hunt for the perfect gift is on. And while common presents like ties, gadgets and tools are dependable choices, have you ever considered skincare as a gift? Despite it seeming a little off kilter, skincare is something that everyone cares (or at least should care) about, regardless of gender. In fact, when it comes to sun-damaged skin, men might benefit more from a considerate skincare routine than they realise.


Recognising Vulnerability and Healing: Dealing with Sun Damage

Research reveals that men spend more time outdoors than women and are less likely to use regular sunscreen. This makes them especially susceptible to sun-damage. With this in mind, Father’s Day is a great opportunity to introduce the men in our lives to personalised skincare that can counteract the effects of the sun. A well-designed skincare routine can help reduce the visible signs of sun damage, boosting confidence and overall skin health. And the best part? Achieving these results doesn’t require expensive gender-specific products or a complex 10-step routine. Incorporating simple, research-backed products into a well-planned routine can show impressive results in as little as three months.

The Magic of Niacinamide: Revealing Healthy Skin

So, what’s the key ingredient to focus on? It’s Niacinamide. This humble compound, also known as Vitamin B3, has significant potential for addressing various concerns related to sun damage, including uneven pigmentation and fine lines. But its benefits go beyond these immediate issues. Niacinamide is also known for strengthening the skin’s protective barrier, making it more resilient against environmental stressors. Given its multi-functional nature, Niacinamide is the perfect solution for those who prefer a straightforward skincare approach that will still get results.

Creating an Effective Routine: Using Niacinamide’s Power

If you want to get Dad hooked on Niacinamide, here are some low fuss ways he can introduce it to his daily routine:

  • Start his morning routine with a face and body moisturiser that contains 5% niacinamide and SPF. A good option is the SolarCareB3 SPF15 Moisturiser, available in a 250ml size. This powerful product contains Niacinamide to support sun-damaged skin as well as SPF to help prevent more sun-damage from occurring.

  • In the evening, get Dad to use a gentle cleanser followed by more Niacinamide to enhance the skin revitalisation process. For evenings, try our original SolarCareB3 Moisturiser in a 500ml size. It contains 5% Niacinamide, can be used on the face and body, and comes in a large enough bottle to be shared with the family.

  • For those looking to maximise benefits with minimal additional effort, consider also introducing Niacinamide tablets. SolarCareB3 offers High-Dose Niacinamide in 500mg film-coated tablets to help combat sun-damage from the inside out. Use once daily or as often as recommended by your healthcare provider.


Overall Wellbeing: Tips for Healthy Skin

As long as Dad keeps himself well-hydrated, gets enough rest and takes precautions to shield his skin from further sun damage—like using broad-spectrum SPF and covering up when out in the sun—introducing these three essential products will put him on the right path to improved confidence, less sun damage and better overall skin health.

So if you’re looking for a considerate and functional Father’s Day gift, look no further than SolarCareB3. And to all the dads, step dads, grandfathers and father figures out there, Happy Father’s Day. Your care, guidance and presence are truly cherished.
