Every man has had razor burn at one time or another. It could have been caused because he used a dull razor or because he forgot his shaving cream and tried shaving with soap. The pain of a razor burn can last for days and make you miserable for hours at a time. It can be hard to concentrate on work and the idea of any physical activity (where the face flushes) is enough to make a guy dog-off on his buddies. While using the proper techniques and tools is extremely important, applying a high-quality men’s aftershave can save you a lot of discomfort. |
Sliding a razor across your face can be compared to sliding a squeegee across a window. The moisture is pulled off the window and whisked away. When you shave, the razor pulls oils and moisture out of the skin and it too is whisked away. This moisture needs to be put back into the skin before the skin realizes it is gone. If the body sends signals to the oil glands that moisture is needed, those glands go into overdrive. They can overproduce and leave you feeling oily. The excess oil can also lead to breakouts. The other problem with constantly drying out your skin is that it will cause you to age prematurely. That’s right, you’ll develop wrinkles long before your time.
Choosing the right aftershave is the first step. If you live in a humid area and generally feel oily, you will want to use an aftershave gel. The gel is light weight and will work into the skin quickly. If you live in a colder climate or one with intense winds, you will want an aftershave balm. Balms are super thick. They won’t immediately soak into the skin. In fact, they provide a protective, moisturizing barrier against harsh elements. Skiing, snowmobiling, or even running in the winter can wear out your skin. Using a balm will keep those natural disasters at bay. A nice in-between product is a men’s aftershave lotion. The lotions work into the skin but provide for deeper moisturizing than a gel.
