Should my aftershave include a moisturizer?

Using a non-irritating aftershave that contains a moisturizer makes sense because shaving can irritate and dry the skin. It's also a good idea to use moisturizer on a regular basis, whether or not you choose to use aftershave. Some men don't bother using moisturizer, however, men's skin requires the same care as women's skin to stay youthful and healthy looking. Talk to your dermatologist for more information.
