Why You Should Use A Shave Creme and After Shave


Visitors: 169

Most men do not find the need of using the aftershave much less the shaving cream. Lots of men find aftershaves similar to that of cologne and shaving cream serves no better purpose compared to shower foams and toilet soaps.

The chin is of many contours, which makes a clean shave hard to achieve, especially in areas where the neck meets the chin. While making the extra effort in keeping these areas clean, it often results in razor nick or razor burn. Whether it is stray unshaved areas that you missed out when shaving or having a fresh scar or rash from shaving will greatly affect your confidence throughout the day. This is the dilemma a good shaving cream can help resolve.

Shaving cream actually softens and lifts the hair for a cleaner and closer shave to prevent razor nicks which the common shower foam or toilet soap cannot achieve. At the same time, its special qualities will protect the chin from rashes and skin irritation. The shaving cream also acts as a moisturizer leaving the skin soft and smooth rather than the dry and flaky feeling of the common shower foam or toilet soap. Something like Men-U shave crème has a fresh mint and can be very refreshing.

Finish off the shave with a good aftershave to soothe the skin and give it a healthy condition. Even if you had accidentally nicked your skin while shaving, there is always the gel/balm type like 4VOO Repairing After-Shave Balm for you to soothe the pain and reduce the irritation. Use the fragrant splash on type like OXYGEN Men’s After Shave Balm on a perfect date for some up close and personal contact.

Whether is it for the clean confident well shaven looks for your career well being or the soft and smooth face to get close and personal with your other half, a good shaving cream and aftershave will definitely give you the cutting edge you want in your life.
