Here’s a paradigm shift for you: What if “dad bod” became known as a good thing?
Make it happen this Father’s Day by pampering pops with a treatment at CB Men’s Spa at Cedarbrook Lodge (SeaTac, 18525 36th Ave. S; 206.901.9268; cedarbrooklodge.com). The lineup includes the “Massage and Microbrew” ($103), a 50-minute massage with Oregon-made SacredEarth botanical products, plus a frosty local microbrew; and the “Shower Power Rainwater Rinse,” a 50-minute treatment ($108) featuring whole-body exfoliation followed by a rainwater rinse, moisturizer and scalp massage. // Or treat dad daily with a grooming goodie from Seattle-based Rake Made (rakemade.com).
We love the hair and beard balm ($28.50), which boasts a heavenly lemongrass and peppermint scent from essential oils, plus natural conditioners and beeswax to help keep things tidy and in place. Find Rake products at Blink Atelier salon (Capitol Hill, 715 Broadway E; 206.324.5274; blinkatelier.com) or order online.
