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?

The anti-septic qualities of alcohol are often quoted as a benefit of aftershave lotions, helping heal those little cuts that sometimes happen when you shave, but let’s face it in this day and age unless you’re shaving with a butcher’s knife, you shouldn’t be having cuts in your face from shaving. And if you use products with natural ingredients, like Calendula flower extract and Shea Butter you will benefit from the same anti-septic properties.

The Benefits Of Organic Skincare Products

Why Natural Skin Care Is Better Care

Natural Skin CareThere’s no question that a natural and organic approach makes sense when it comes to choosing your food. The same can be said for other products you put on your body. Specifically, skin care. Think about all of the products you may use on a daily basis that may come in contact with your skin.

As the largest organ of the body, your skin not only absorbs lots of nutrients, but it can also take in a number of toxins each day. Up to 60% of what we put on our skin ends up being absorbed in the body and when the products we use are made from harmful artificial ingredients these place an unnecessary chemical load on the body’s detoxification processes and on the entire immune system, including the skin. Some chemicals remain stored in the body for several months or even years before they are completely eliminated.
