Dave was my stepfather, and really, the only male figure in my life growing up. Though he has been gone now for a number of years, our talks and his inspiration lives through me everyday. With Father’s Day just around the corner, Dove Men+Care asked me to share with my audience advice I’ve received from a male figure in my life. Here is something that he use to tell me that has lived with me for well over a decade now.
“No matter what you choose to do in life, make sure you enjoy the people around you and the rest will be easy.” – David Beauchamp.
It’s easy to forget even the simplest of words, mantras, or advice given, and start heading down a different path. Not to say it’s the wrong path, but perhaps not where you were aiming to go. Whenever I feel as though I’m a bit lost, and it feels like I’m flailing my arms for help, I remember what Dave told me. I start to appreciate the people I have in my life: my beautiful, supportive wife, my brother and my nieces, and of course, my mother. Really there are too many amazing people in my life to mention, but you get the point.
My advice: returning the favor
Dave’s wisdom and support has always kept me going. It’s something I hope to spread to others, because it always motivated me to find the best in life. That being said, I’d like to pass on a bit of my own advice and wisdom to my readers, more specifically to current or future dads.
I’m not looking to throw a wrench into your already crafted routine, but perhaps introduce some new ones. That’s my nice way of saying, “hey, if you aren’t taking care of yourself, how are you going to take care of your loved ones, especially your little ones?” SHOTS FIRED! Just hear me out.
I’m sure many of my male readers can relate to me when I say that up until a few years ago I would just buy whatever product stood out to me on the shelf. There was really no rhyme or reason, just pick up whatever deodorant or body wash I saw. This has changed over the years. Now, when I’m perusing the aisles at Target, I tend to gravitate towards the Dove Men+Care section. They have every product I could need for my daily routine. Here are a few of my favorites.
Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Antiperspirant Deodorant Stick
Feel fresh longer with the crisp, clean smelling antiperspirant deodorant from Dove Men+Care. Now with a new formula for even more skin protection, and 48 hours of defense from sweat and body odor.
Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash
Men, it’s time to stop avoiding your face. You should cleanse it just as often as you wash your body… daily! Dove Men+Care’s Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash is #1 Dermatologist recommended and has a gentle formula good for not only your body, but also your face. 2-in-1 is always a win!
Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Anti-Dandruff Shampoo
Before I decided to start shaving my head, I hated buying two products for my hair. Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort takes care of those two issues, as well as another; pesky dandruff. It strengthens the hair, resulting in healthier, thicker looking hair, while also defending you from a flaky scalp.
Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body + Face 8-bar
Not a foaming wash kinda guy? I recommend you trying out their body bar. It’s both good for your body and face, and has the #1 Dermatologist recommended stamp of approval like the foaming body wash from Dove Men+Care. Its creamy foam rinses away easily without leaving a greasy lather.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and future dads out there.
