The shaggy look is out (even in lockdown) … so as celeb and dad, Katlego Maboe, shares the five fabulous ways he stays well groomed, we’ve added a gift guide to help you shop for your dad this Fathers’ Day.
Celeb Katlego Maboe knows what it takes to look his best. ‘Looking presentable has nothing to do with my career, it has to do with the pride I take in making sure that I am always at my full potential,’ says Katlego.
‘I have always believed in taking care of myself… It’s just good common sense.’
Your scent defines you
Katlego says, ‘Before I leave the house, I make sure that I spray on my favourite scent.’ Ambition from the Playboy Signature Collection has a citrus fragrance which boasts notes of mandarin and bergamot, with an undertone of vanilla and musk that lasts long … making this his defining scent.

Keep your skin hydrated
It’s not only about what products you use on your body but what you put into your body too. Katlego says drinking water and eating greens helps to look after your skin from the inside … good tips for dad not just for Fathers’ Day, but throughout the year!

Look after your skin

And a juicy spoil for dad
While we’re sure your dad will heed Katlego’s advice to eat more greens, Fathers’ Day is about spoils! And if your dad enjoys a burger then, trust us, you need to treat him to an order from Hudsons Burger Joint in Parkhurst. This spot offers a host of tasty meals … think steak, ribs, wings and even tacos. But the real drawcard is their range of juicy burgers. We love the original royale burger … think, a free-range beef patty topped with crispy streaky bacon, cheddar, battered onion rings and chilli oil. Fit for your king – your dad! They’re now offering at-home kits, like their build-your-own-burger kits. Top off your order with family-sized ‘heat & eat’ Hudsons’ choc brownies with pecan nuts. You can place your order through the Mr D Food app or order directly from this burger joint and get 10 per cent off your bill. Open 11.30am to 7pm, Monday to Sunday.
