An aftershave is designed to care for the skin after shaving. Here are som of the benefits of using an alcohol based aftershave:
Disinfection: Alcohol is a natural antiseptic, which means it can help to kill bacteria and prevent infection from any cuts or nicks that may have occurred during your shave.
Astringent properties: Alcohol can help to tighten and tone your skin, helping to reduce the appearance of pores and leave the skin feeling refreshed and invigorated.
Drying properties: Alcohol help to dry out the skin, which can be beneficial for people with oily skin or those who are prone to acne.
Cooling sensation: Alcohol can provide a cooling sensation when applied to the skin, which can help to reduce redness and inflammation caused by shaving, and it just adds a boost of refreshness when you apply it.
It is important to note that some people find that aftershaves with alcohol can be drying, and may cause irritation or burning sensation. In such cases, and if you have naturally dry og sensitive skin it's best to look for alcohol-free aftershaves or balms.
