MANILA, Philippines — In this life, you and I will meet many men. You will fall in love with one and get your heart broken; you will fall in love again with another till you find ‘The One.’

But there will always be that one man who will stand by your side through it all—from meeting your first crush to walking you down the aisle. Your dad.

This Father’s Day, celebrate the man in your life by celebrating his passions with him. Whether your dad’s into sports or music, fashion or travel, or simply a hardworking guy, there’s always something you can give him to make him feel extra special.

From 'dad bod' to dad face

Treat your dad with Marks & Spencer’s collection of fragrance, skin and body care gift sets. Go for Original Woodspice if he likes the sophisticated scents of woody, spicy fragrance, or get him a set from Marks & Spencer’s Autograph, which has a burst of mandarin, grapefruit and mint scents.

Health and wellness can take a beating in the fulfilment of paternal calling. Sometimes, dads are so focused on their work that they sleep less and push their bodies beyond their points of endurance - while guzzling alcohol and chomping on cholesterol-and-fat-rich foods, which are easy to find and quick to consume. As a result, they gain weight, build up high blood pressure, and expose themselves to medical conditions like cardio-vascular illnesses. And when the stress really piles high, the wear-and-tear of work affects their demeanor; acne can break out and wrinkles start embedding themselves on their foreheads.

Fortunately, cutting-edge, non-invasive solutions can stop these hardworking dads from proceeding down these slippery slopes of bad habits and restore them to the path of health and wellness. More than that, they can also look younger and more attractive, as the inherent rejuvenation process of their physiologies takes over.

“Modern-day treatments that can address the father’s health issues do not require surgery or any downtime,” says Dr. Lalaine Salazar, the Medical Director at the SvelT’i Health and Beauty Centre in Timog Avenue, Quezon City.

Life can be really hectic and the daily grind can easily take a toll on the hardworking fathers of each family. Having to spend those long hours at work, sacrifice spending for their own hobbies, and generally put up with toughest conditions just to bring food to the table and send their kids to school, are just some of the factors that drive most fathers to give his family the best future he could provide.
