Another Father’s Day doesn’t have to mean another tie, book, or photo mug. Opt for a gift that will help him look and feel great. We asked Michael Gold, MD, a dermatologist at Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, to share his top picks.

1. A Close Shave

Aging Is a Real Pain in the Neck. . .

Mark Liszt, a food broker from Los Angeles, has had operations on both knees and a toe. A doctor has suggested a total replacement of his right knee, but he’s afraid it will affect his ability to play ball. At 59, Liszt can’t stop. On Tuesdays and Fridays, he plays basketball with guys who are sometimes half his age. On Saturday, he hobbles around all day with serious knee pain. Friends and family have referred him to doctors, but he’s stayed away. “I don’t want to be told what a fool I am,” he says...

Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power Razor 

No other razor compares, Gold says. Thinner-than-usual blades with a low-drag coating help the razor glide over the skin without pulling. 

2. Aloe Mate

Edge Sensitive Skin Shave Gel

Dragging a sharp blade across your skin is a recipe for razor burn, but the aloe helps counteract any irritation, Gold says.

3. Daytime Defense

Neutrogena Men Triple Protect Face Lotion, SPF 20

Gold says guys don't do moisturizers well, but they need to take the extra step. This product moisturizes, protects skin from UVB and UVA rays, and soothes razor burn with green tea extract. 

4. Lip Service

Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment

Camphor, menthol, and phenol help nix the pain of chapped lips and provide moisture.

5. Here's the Rub

Sure Original Solid Unscented Deodorant

There's plenty of aluminum hydroxide, the wetness fighter, in this unscented rub, which Gold recommends because scented products can cause underarm rashes.

6. Desert Oasis

Cetaphil RESTORADERM Skin Restoring Moisturizer

This body lotion is ultra-hydrating with shea butter and sunflower seed oil and is fragrance-free, a major plus for scent-phobic guys.

7. See Foam

CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser

This soap-free wash, with ceramide and hyaluronic acid, gets rid of dirt and oil without leaving skin feeling tight and dry.
