  9. Why Men Should Use an Aftershave

    I have long advised men not to use aftershaves and colognes that contain alcohol immediately after shaving on the basis that the alcohol these products contain will dry the skin leading to irritation and even premature ageing due to wrinkles.
    I’ve always said that freshly shaved skin needs moisturising after shaving so use an aftershave balm, not an aftershave containing alcohol I told to anyone who would listen.
