Father’s Day is a day to honour fathers and father figures, such as grandfathers and fathers-in-law. Many people make a special effort to visit their dear dads or to send them a card and gifts.

It’s a hip new age for beards and you don’t have to be a hipster to sport a well-oiled beard anymore. Wait – well-oiled beard? – Healthy beards require moisture and as they grow longer, the more natural oil they require. If a man’s beard fails to obtain adequate moisture he risks itch, coarse hairs, dry skin, and the unsightly southern cousin to dandruff, beardruff. Beard oil is the finest solution to prevent this from happening. There are many brands out there such as TreeRanger by BeardBrand which promises to “transform your beard in a fresh follicle forest.”
