What to get Dad this Father's Day? 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

Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power Razor, $12.99

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, $2

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, $6.99

Guys don't do moisturizers well, says Gold, but they need to. This one moisturizes, protects skin from UVB and UVA rays, and soothes razor burn with green tea extract. 

4.  Lip Service

Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment, $1.99

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

5.  Here's the Rub

Sure Original Solid Unscented Deodorant, $2

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, $14.99

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

7.  See Foam

CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, $4.99

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