What are the benefits of using aftershave?

A well-chosen aftershave can help to prevent discomfort that may occur following a shave. Shaving can remove the outermost layer of your skin. That can create irritation and dryness. Applying aftershave provides protection and lubrication for your skin. If you use aftershave, choose a product that contains a moisturizer but doesn't feel too greasy. Beware, though, that some aftershaves may irritate the skin, so you may have to try a few before finding one that works well for you. Talk to your dermatologist about which shaving product is right for you.
