Alcohol based aftershave or After Shave Balm?

Those of you who use after shave may not know the difference between alcohol or alcohol free, but some knowledge of this may actually help you improve your shaving experience. By far the most popular post-shave solution is the alcohol-based after-shave or cologne. But did you know that the daily use of such products can dry out your skin and contribute to the acceleration of the ageing process?

There are two types of products when it comes to after-shaves. Alcohol-based ones, which are the most common and are usually called lotions or waters, and Alcohol-free ones, which are categorized as balms, gels or moisturizers. If you suffer from skin conditions such as acne and eczema, don’t use an Alcohol-based after shave. It will severely aggravate your skin condition and will sting like crazy.

But aren’t there any benefits to using a conventional after-shave?

And if you use products with natural ingredients, like Calendula flower extract and Shea Butter you will benefit from the same anti-septic properties.
