All shaved and clean? You’re not quite done yet. Although you are done with the hard part. Just a few more steps to ensure that your face looks good after loosing its hairy top coat. Follow these post-shave tips to keep that charm intact.
Step 1: Rinse your face with cold water
Once you are done with the shave, wash your face with cold water. Make sure to remove any remaining shaving cream or any pre-shave oil that you might have applied. Cold water will help in closing your pores and in tightening the skin of your face.
Step 2: Use an Alum Block or after shave lotion
Invest in a good alum block or a good after shave lotion. They both are mild antiseptic that will help to instantly seal any minor cuts. They also will cool and refresh your skin. After rinsing your face post shave, wet the alum block and gently run it across your freshly shaved face. Or, take a good amount of after shave lotion and dab it on your face. This will also leave a fresh essence on your face.
Step 3: Use after shave balm
Once you are done with alum block or after shave lotion, apply a gently amount of after shave balm on your face and massage it thoroughly. It will sooth the skin irritations and improve its condition overtime.
Step 4: Apply a toner
Use a high quality toner onto your skin and wipe it off with a cotton pad to remove any excess oils from your skin.
Step 5: Moisturize
Apply a moisturizer, preferably one with SPF protection to the dry areas and work it gently with your fingertips. This will make your skin feel less dry.
There you go. You are now ready to take over the world!
