All About After-shave Skincare
We all shave our face one way or the other. However, we forget that continuous shaving can cause irritation, redness, etc. But shaving should not be causing all these, hence, after-shave was created. So, what is after-shave and why do we use it?
What is After-shave?
After-shaves could be liquid, lotion, or gel which is designed to be applied after a one shaves his face to soothe chafed skin. It is known to help prevent infections that arise from any possible minor nicks/cuts on the face after shaving. It locks in moisture and helps defend the skin by keeping all unwanted elements out. When skin is not in peak condition, it can cause the look of aging; to combat this, it’s so important to prepare your skin before your shave and to treat it after you shave.
after-shave skincare usually consists of conditioning agents to aid moisturisation; humectants that helps to draw moisture from the environment into skin throughout the day; antioxidants (like Vitamins A, C, and E) which protects against the environment; and extracts and proteins which helps to soothe and repair shaved skin.
Why Use After-shave?
A good after-shave will help soothe and repair an irritated skin. When you don’t use it, the skin will feel very tight, red, and irritated which can lead to ingrown hair and razor bumps. Continuous irritation is proven to cause skin aging, including uneven skin tone and sagging skin. A good after-shave replenishes the moisture lost during shaving, providing a protective layer to combat shaving irritations like razor bumps, razor burns and ingrown hairs.
