After shave lotions soothe the skin and prolong the clean sensation of a close shave. After shave lotions are made with oils and vitamins that soothe the skin such as vitamin A, C, and E, avocado oil, tea tree oil, jojoba oil, green tea, lemon oil and other plant-based oils. These natural ingredients work to heal cuts, restore moisture, and tone the skin and combat infections after each shave.
All types of skin will benefit from the cooling, refreshing feeling of after shave lotion. After shave lotions are made for a variety of skin types. Men with dry skin should choose an after shave lotion with added moisturizing properties; while men with oily skin should choose an after shave lotion with acne-fighting properties. Due to the non-greasy texture of many after shaves they naturally fight acne by controlling sebum and minimizing the development of bacteria on the skin. When shopping for an after shave lotion, avoid brands that contain the ingredients menthol (a cooling agent derived from peppermint oil) and benzocaine (an anesthetic and topical pain reliever). Both of these harsh ingredients will stiffen the beard and tighten the pores, leaving your skin tight and uncomfortable.
