After Shave Care

Submitted by on – No Comment

Don’t apply deodorants, anti-perspirants or perfumes to the skin right after shaving. After shaving, apply an oil-free high quality moisturizer to soothe and protect the face, this will help reduce irritation, itching and soften the skin and hair follicles. It will also help to reduce the discomfort caused by stubble between shaves. You’ve just removed two layers of skin, so you want to soothe the skin and make sure it’s fully moisturized. Ladies, many of your shave products tend to be greasy, perfumed based concoctions that don’t absorb as quickly, so it’s best to stick to an aloe based product that is unscented. Guys if you prefer the use of after shave, check the label for alcohol. Dryness and stinging sensations are the by-products of most after-shave products and is definitely bad for your skin. Avoid mentholated shaving products, as the “cool” feeling is indicative or menthol, which is similar to alcohol and can be just as irritating to the skin. For nicks and cuts many dermatologists recommend Vitamin E oil or cream. Application of an over the counter cortisone or anti itch cream may help with razor burn and bumps. Splashing the skin with cold water afterwards helps tone the skin, reduces wrinkles, removes soap and lather and of course stops any bleeding from any minor cuts.
