After shave: skin care after shaving
Aftershave may be a cream or balm that is used for skin care after shaving. At each wet shave, a little of the top layer of skin is removed and therefore a replenishing treatment is required. An alcohol-free aftershave is particularly suitable for sensitive and delicate skin.
- After shaving, the face should first be washed with warm water and mild facial cleanser and then splashed with cold water. The cold water closes the pores, stimulates blood circulation and ensures freshness.
- After gently patting dry (no rubbing) the aftershave should now be applied and gently massaged into the face.
- Depending on the intensity of care required, a moisturiser can then be applied.
Classic aftershave care has a disinfecting effect according to the proportion of alcohol or ethanol. Moisturising glycerine nourishes stressed skin after shaving; moreover, aftershaves containing coagulation-promoting ingredients can quickly heal minor cuts.
The effects of aftershave soothe irritated and reddened skin and disinfect the skin. The aftershave ensures lasting hydration and protects, cools and refreshes the freshly shaved skin. For particularly demanding skin types, aftershaves with anti-aging effect and correspondingly rich ingredients are also available.
Another aspect of aftershaves is their inimitable fragrance. With our wide range of aftershaves, everyone will be able to discover their personal signature scent; naturally masculine scents such as musk, sandalwood, cardamom and other spices are very popular.
