AFTER SHAVE: HOW TO USE IT AND WHY IS IT NECESSARY?
After shave isn’t just another element of the shaving ritual: it’s essential for hydration and proper skin recovery after it. Making a good use of the after shave is key to avoid skin irritation, spots, and to heal those annoying little cuts…
…but we can make it even more useful.
Improving the ritual and its effects.
But, before we get into the improvements, we need to master the basics of the after shave, and how to use its different qualities.
How to use after shave for maximum performance.
As its name suggests, after shave is for being used after shaving.
- Remove facial hair and shaving cream from your face using cold water to seal pores.
- Dry it thoroughly, and apply an after shave of your choice all over your face, especially in the most sensitive and freshly shaved areas: cheeks, chin, upper lips and neck.
Using an after shave is like using a regenerating elixir, because:
- It moisturizes the skin which is dry and unprotected when facial hair is removed.
- It restores smoothness and flexibility.
- It is astringent, as it helps to close small cuts and stimulates cell work.
