There’s no reason to allow your kids to dictate your schedule. Regardless of the parental guidance they need, you really have to find time to treat yourself – especially for Father’s Day. Even if you’re working solo or have the kids in your care for the entire day, there’s certainly a way fathers can be cool and confident, while also splurging some time on their manscaping.

Whether it’s the start of the day and the kids are in their rooms playing or maybe the sun has set and they finally found their way to bed, take the time to ease out and draw a bath. Seriously, it’s not just for women. It’s relaxing, rejuvenating, and you won’t feel as if you were completely drained by mini adults with endless amounts of energy. First, fill the tub and add some LUSH Bath Bomb, Big Blue — perfect with its clean, soothing scent. To make it even more of a spa-like experience, add Agraria Lavender Rosemary Bath Salts for absolute comfort and relaxation.  Pair a Clinique For Men Sonic System Deep Cleansing Brush with Cartier’s Declaration d’un Soir Perfumed Shower Gel and you can achieve an ultimate wash. After you’ve soaked long enough, seal your moisture (and relaxation) in using Chantecaille Harmonizing Cream. For a final touch of flavor, finish your at-home-get-away with Hermès Le Jardin de Monsieur. Its scent is supposed to place you in a meditating state, continuously calming your senses.

We understand, each day is a long one when it comes to having children. You have to make sure they eat well, get cleaned up, and receive more attention on the weekends, when they have more free time to get into trouble. It’s psychotic, a headache, and even more sobering knowing that you can’t escape. However, at night you can have your moments of solace and comfort in complete solitude. Well, at least until the kids find you.
