As I'm the first to admit, the male psyche sometimes prefers not to concern itself with risks like ultraviolet radiation.

Leading Cosmetic Dermatologist James Fairfield, MD, has just released another in a series of free articles on his web site. Gift Ideas for the Man in Your Life: Men's Skin Care Products is available for immediate download at http://www.cmderm.com.
Here's something most women can agree on: Choosing gifts for men is tough. Thinking of something new and different for Father's Day or a birthday can really tax the imagination. Cosmetic Dermatologist James Fairfield suggests a great way to show the man in your life you care: men's skin care products.
Men are catching on to the idea that it's a part of good grooming to take care of their skin. "Maybe you've seen a bottle or tube of 'product' lurking around the bathroom!" suggests Fairfield. But, a man's skin is different from a woman's, so it's very important to make sure he gets the right skin care products.
Dr. Fairfield's article describes the features that make male skin different from female skin, and what the implications are for using and choosing men's skin care products. "Extra care must be taken when choosing skin care products for men," Fairfield notes. "Harsh bar soaps and alcohol-based colognes and aftershaves are just too drying." He explains why it's wise, and well worth it, to look for medical grade men's skincare products.
One major enemy of men's skin is shaving, which reduces the skin's natural layer of protection, increasing its fragility and producing dryness. Another source of dry skin is found with showers or baths that are too hot or too frequent - a problem for those who engage in sports or go to the gym. In these cases, a really great moisturizer is important. And then there's the sun. It's not just a challenge for guys who engage in outdoor activities or work outdoors! And, Fairfield notes, "As I'm the first to admit, the male psyche sometimes prefers not to concern itself with risks like ultraviolet radiation."
That's where a gift from the woman in his life, along with some persuasion, can really help. One gift idea Dr. Fairfield suggests can be packaged like this: moisturizing sunscreen, some gentle (loving) nagging and a really cool hat.
Finally, Fairfield asks, who could resist an invigorating facial? The products used in facials should include essential oils with fruit, plant and marine extracts. These ingredients will really give a guy's face a healthy glow. "Performed correctly, a facial increases the flow of blood and lymph, to purify and energize the skin cells," Fairfield points out. "He'll feel pampered, relaxed and refreshed -- what a stress-reliever!"
So, if you are a woman who's stumped for something for your favorite guy, whether it's a holiday, a birthday or Father's Day, why not tell him you care with men's skin care products?
