Shopping for dads can be an all-around arduous task. After buying him 17 pairs of cufflinks, the funny tie he never wears, and whatever new gimmicky kitchen tool, pen, or tech gadget that you learned about from an Instagram ad that week (which boasted "Free shipping in time for Father's Day"), it's easy to feel at a loss. All you want is to get the important men in your life a present that they will actually use and better yet, use every day. Enter: skin care.

According to a study by Grand View Research, the men's skin-care market is predicted to be worth nearly $19 billion by 2027, proving that there is rising awareness and interest amongst men when it comes to skin health and personal grooming.

Men's skin is approximately 20 percent thicker than women's and two times as oily, making it more prone to acne, and it tends to be more stressed as a result of routine shaving. Though, stereotypically, many men's skin-care products are of the 3-in-1, "this bottle is my soap, shampoo, conditioner, aftershave, moisturizer, and favorite condiment to put on french fries" variety, there are a whole host of amazing skin-care brands and products on the market that are catered towards men's skin concerns.

Curious about what to get for your "I'm not a regular dad, I'm a *cool* dad" that he'll actually love and his skin will thank you for? Scroll down to shop 12 of the best men's skin-care products just in time for Father's Day.
