This week, The Beauty Beat salutes dad. Show him you’re thankful for everything but those early onset grey hairs he’s undoubtedly passing along with gifts of health and wellness like these.
BEAUTY: Keep dad looking dapper with The Art of Shaving The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave —Ocean Kelp Kit. With shaving cream, gel, lotion and brush, it’s everything dad needs to stay clean-shaven. GET IT:$100. Available online at Sephora.com.
SPA: Dad works hard for a living. Give him the day off with a trip to Lapis Spa at the Fontainebleau. On Sunday, June 17, gift dad a poolside vacay, complete with a cabana packing a 32-inch flat screen TV. He’ll also live the good life with his own butler service, stocked mini fridge and wifi.
Speaking of free wifi, now would be the perfect time to give dad a BlackBerry PlayBook to keep him entertained during commercial breaks. The wifi-based tablet lets dad surf the web at his leisure. Plus, it’s so size-friendly, he can carry it anywhere. And it beats the heck out of a tie.
Then, shove him off to the spa for Weekend Warrior’s Rehab and Buff Manicure ($171), a deep sports massage with heated stones, a complimentary Lapis soak and manicure. Or, purchase any 50-to 80-minute treatment for 20 percent off. Dad will also score a complimentary Lapis soak with purchase of any two spa services throughout the month of June. Go ahead, make dad’s day. GET IT: 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 877-854-9425.
GYM: If dad’s recently taken to working out again, it time to get him to retire those tired tees he’s been wearing to the gym since who knows when. Snatch up catchy tees and tanks and new workout gear at the Om Threads Trunk Show. Score 20 percent off everything at the Miami Life Center Boutique, while you shop brands like Funky Yoga and Yogiiza. Then, snatch up $99 unlimited yoga packages, while you’re at it. Now there’s no excuse for dad not to get back into the grove. Plus, it’s good for his aching back. Look for the series of trunk shows to happen throughout South Florida. GET IT:June 16, 6:30-9:30 p.m. Miami Life Center, 736 Sixth St., Miami Beach.; miamilifecenter.com.
