Do I need to use a special aftershave if I have sensitive skin?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

If you have sensitive skin, look for an aftershave that doesn't contain fragrance or alcohol, which can potentially irritate the skin. Choose an aftershave product that contains moisturizer, which can soothe skin irritation and prevent dryness. Also, be sure you're using proper shaving technique to minimize irritation. Thoroughly wet your beard with warm water before shaving. Shave in the direction that your hair grows, and avoid repeated strokes over the same area. Talk to a dermatologist for more information.
