What Do You Know About Skincare
An aftershave usually comes in the form of a lotion or gel. It is mainly used by men to thwart infect infections that could start from skin cuts right after shaving. This is because aftershaves contain ingredients, such as alcohol, that provide antiseptic benefits. But though this may be sufficient to make aftershaves a must for all shavers, modern products are now made with many other “features” aside disinfection.
First of all, if you check out aftershaves in stores or even online, you will find that they all contain some type of perfume. Whether the product is cheap or expensive, most probably, it has perfume in it for scent enhancement. In fact, when people go shopping for aftershaves, the perfume is often one of them most important things they consider. It has become so important that many of these products have fashion designer names on them, like Tommy Hilfiger and Hugo Boss, among many others.
Aside from perfume, aftershaves of today also contain moisturizers. As we know, moisturizers soften the skin after a fresh shave, and that is a benefit all shavers can use. These products are obviously no longer restricted to their original purpose.
Yet another factor that make aftershaves unique from one another is their packaging. Of course, packaging itself will have no effect on how an aftershave can affect your skin. But in a way, when you like how your aftershave is put together, it makes you so fond of it that you will probably actually use it instead of just let is sit on your dresser (happens all the time).
In any case, an aftershave can come in handy for different people for different reasons. There are those who just want to smell nice, while others just need the product’s antiseptic protection. No matter your reasons for buying an aftershave, make sure you get something that’s suitable for you. A little homework will get you far. Understand your skin and know your options.
Finally, there’s the question of whether aftershave is for all shavers. So are they safe for all? Basically, anyone who has sensitivity issues or is allergic to witch hazel or any other ingredients in the product, should not use aftershave. Also, if your skin is prone to breakouts, avoid using any harsh products or those that can clog your pores. A good option is using a cooling gel cream that provides both moisturizing and soothing effects on freshly shaved skin. Again, research will help you find the right type and brand, depending on your skin type. Pay attention to product reviews, but stick to independent consumer websites instead of marketing websites which are biased.
