Why Dad Should Care About His Skin Too!
Now Is The Time To Plan Dad's Skincare Playbook
For the longest time, the skincare industry has been mainly focused on women, but new studies are revealing that men need to take just as much (or more!) care of their skin as women.
So with Father’s Day coming up, we take a look at the importance of men’s skincare, and why dad needs to start taking it seriously today!
The skin is our largest organ, and also our first line of defense. It protects us from changes in climate, harmful bacteria, and dangerous viruses, all the while pulling in moisture from the air and giving us the hydration our skin desperately needs. (1)
And this applies to men just as much, if not more, than women.
Because men’s skin is 25% thicker than women’s skin, which sounds awesome, but really just means there’s more skin to manage. (2)
And dad doesn’t just have thicker skin. He can have more layers of skin too!

Men can have up to FIVE layers of skin, which are distinctly different and need to be nurtured every day, especially as we grow older.
Taking care of your layers plays an important role in the body’s natural ability to moisturize and attract water, and allows us to deflect the sun’s pesky UV rays and fend off summer sweat and oil. (3)
A great way to do this is by checking out Garner’s Garden 100% All-Natural 4D Hyaluronic Acid Package, which will moisturize your skin, supplement your collagen production, and provide you with youthful-looking skin that’s radiant, glowing, and hydrated all summer long.
Skin naturally thins as we age. This can lead to stretching, sagging, wrinkling, and even more severe health problems, like bone loss and bruising, which can worsen over time.
These effects can also extend to beneath the skin, which may lead to cartilage deterioration, bone density problems, and a loss of healthy fat, which can lead to diseases later in life. (4)
Sounds Scary, Right?
Well, don't worry. You can now slow down the aging process by moisturizing your skin with Garner’s Garden 100% All-Natural Body Butter, which will extend the life of your skin for years, and keep it thicker and healthier longer!
Dad loves the outdoors. Whether it’s tinkering with that piece of the house he’s been meaning to get to, mowing the lawn, or playing ball, when given the opportunity, most dads (AND EVERYONE) love being outside.
This can be a problem, though, because 80% of the aging of our skin doesn’t even come from aging! It’s caused by the sun. (5)
But what many people don’t know is that SUN DAMAGE IS IRREVERSIBLE, which can lead to cancer-causing mutations in our cellular DNA. (6)
Sun damage is also cumulative, which means its damage worsens over time, putting a potential damper on all of this summer’s upcoming fun in the sun. (7)
But now it’s okay for dad to catch those sweet summer rays because of Garner’s Garden 100% All-Natural Vitamin C Serum, which replenishes what you lose from the sun, and turns back the hands of time to restore your skin back to its youthful glow.
Facial hair can be another problem area for dad’s skin.
55% of men have some kind of facial hair, and studies are now showing facial hair can cause ingrown hairs, skin irritation, and even a fungus known as folliculitis. (8) (9)
But before you pick up that razor, you should also know that shaving can cause skin irritation, razor burn, and dryness. (10)

Men naturally sweat more than women, which makes a good deodorant a handy tool in dad’s toolkit.
However, deodorants today can include dangerous toxins, parabens, aluminum, and other chemicals and additives, which can cause rashes and other skin irritations that may leave you wishing you didn’t sweat at all. (11)
But It Doesn’t End With Irritation.
Deodorants flooded with dangerous chemicals can pose far more severe risks, like developmental problems and even cancers that can mess with the organisms inside your body. (11)
For healthy underarms without irritation, try Garner’s Garden 100% All-Natural Deodorant. And for even stronger protection for dad, try our 100% All-Natural Activated Charcoal Deodorant or 100% All-Natural Magnesium Deodorant, which will protect you all day, no matter how much you sweat!
Two-thirds of men experience some form of hair loss by the age of 35, and 85% of men experience thinner hair by the age of 50. (12)
And this doesn’t even take into account the dryness many men experience by producing less amounts of sebum, a necessary part of healthy hair management, as they sweat and get older.
Having 10-35% of moisture on the surface of your head will lead to a healthier scalp and long-term scalp health, keeping dad looking young and feeling strong well into his twilight years. (13)
Garner’s Garden 100% All-Natural Hair Package will restore dad’s scalp back to its youthful health! Containing the antiseptic power of our All-Natural Hair Oil, the stimulating strength of our All-Natural Argan Oil, and hydrating nourishment of our All-Natural Hair Balm, our hair package is a must for any skincare regiment!
Also check out out our All-Natural Hair Butter, which contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties!
Men have more oil glands than women, which can broaden with age and lead to blocked pores, acne breakouts, and rough skin that will leave your skin feeling greasy and uncomfortable. (14)
Using a moisturizer, and washing with soaps and shampoos with only natural ingredients, is the best way to keep dad’s pores clean, and keep his face feeling elastic and fresh.
Many skincare products are MADE WITH CHEMICALLY-DERIVED OILS, which can take dad’s skincare problems from bad to worse.
Garner’s Garden facial cleansers are 100% All-Natural, and will leave your skin feeling strong, looking radiant, and glowing for years to come.
