Father's Day: Treat Your Superhero Dad
By Amber Chen
Whether he's out saving the world or staying up late at night to help with your homework, we somehow never find the time to say all our "thank you's" to our superhero dads.
They're often too busy working and tend to forget to focus on themselves. As Father's Day is just around the corner, we have the perfect gift idea for your father: an at home spa.
Can't leave the house? No worries. Here are five easy steps to create a perfect spa experience at home! With a couple of beauty products and some quick tips, you'll be able to transform your home into the a 5-star spa experience.
1. Set the Mood
To create an at-home spa experience, it all comes down to the mood. Find a relaxing playlist, light a few candles, and grab some relaxing tea or champagne. Find a place like a bathroom or bedroom to set up your space. As you set up, keep in mind creating a relaxing space so your dad can focus on a personal day of self-care.
2. Warm Your Towels
You know that warm feeling you get when you're being hugged? Yeah, that's the kind of feeling you get when you're wrapped up in a warm towel at a spa. To recreate that experience, warm up some bath and hand towels in a towel warmer. Don't have a towel warmer? No worries, just toss your towels in the dryer for a few minutes. After less than 5 minutes, take them out of the dryer and they are ready to use!
After cleansing yourself, it's time to take care of your skin. Although dad may not have a 10-step Korean skincare routine, this is the perfect time to make sure his skin is getting the proper nutrients and moisture.
For maximum hydration and smoothing appearances, try out KHOHA's REJUVENATE Hydrating Serum that consists of the finest particle, highest quality, 100% pure Hyaluronic acid sourced from Japan. Produced with Hyalorepair®, a type of Hyaluronic acid specific for cosmetic use, KHOHA's hydrating serum repairs rough skin, reduces wrinkles, and preserves skin moisture, achieving maximum anti-aging effects!
4. DIY Face Mask
What's a spa without a face mask? There are plenty of easy at-home face mask recipes, and they all serve different purposes. Depending on what you have lying around in the kitchen and the beauty goal you want to tackle here are some of my favorites:
Honey is the perfect ingredient that nourishes and moisturizes your skin, without feeling too oily. If you have any scarring or damaged skin, honey is a great product that can boost healing and tissue regeneration.
- 1/2 Avocado
- 1 tbps of honey
- 1/2 cup of oats
2. Uneven Skin Texture And Tone
That's right, just 1 ingredient — an egg. Egg whites have proven benefits benefits that include shrinking pores, reducing acne, and preserving moisture. When applying the egg face mask, a protective layer forms on top of your skin that can provide additional protection from sun damage and scars.

3. Exfoliating Face Mask
Green tea is packed with incredible antioxidants that help repair, renew, and protect your skin from pollution and environmental damage. Rice flour will gently exfoliate the dead skin off your face, leaving you with radiant, smooth skin!
- 1 tablespoon of rice flour
- 1/2 cup of brewed green tea, cooled
Instructions: Brew your green tea for 10 minutes. Let it cool completely and gently stir the tablespoon of rice flour. Mix well until it becomes a smooth consistency. Leave on your face for 20 minutes then rinse off with warm water.
This recipe is a quick and easy way to refresh your skin. With one simple ingredient — cucumber.
- 1 cucumber
Instructions: Blend 1 peeled cucumber into a food processor. Pour it through a strainer to get a smooth consistency. Apply the mask onto your face and gently massage it. Leave it on your face for 20 minutes and rinse off using cool water.
One the most important parts of a spa experience is the opportunity to rest. As you pamper your dad with DIY-face masks and skincare products, don't forget to give him some space to decompress, close his eyes, and sleep.
