Natural Aftershave For Men

Naked Armor

Truth: A man needs only the essentials for a perfect grooming routine.

Published by Naked Armor

So, what are the best aftershave products for men? Those that aren't costly, have natural ingredients and don't smell too floral.

Here are the main factors you want to consider when choosing an aftershave for your grooming routine: An aftershave should be gentle on skin, have natural ingredients, be hydrating (nothing that feels dry afterward), and shouldn't break the bank.

Whatever your choice, using aftershave does make a difference in how your skin responds after the daily shave. Using it will make your routine more pleasant, and dare we say, even fun.

Here are some of the best aftershaves on the market we recommend:

Nivea Men's Sensitive Post Shave Balm

An affordable and easy-to-find product, this aftershave is designed for men with sensitive skin. Most users gave it a high rating, probably due to its many natural ingredients: vitamin E, provitamin B5, and chamomile extract. This aftershave balm is perfect for razor burns and is a good aftershave for beginners.

Korres Marigold and Ginseng After Shave Balm

This popular aftershave balm contains a mixture of aloe vera (a plant long known for its burn-soothing properties), witch hazel extract and ginseng. Ginseng, in fact, has been used for thousands of years for vitality and skin longevity and firmness. Now who doesn't want to look younger?

Applying an aftershave is easy since it only takes a few seconds, but the extra time spent on your daily grooming routine will be worth it. Just rub a few drops of aftershave onto your hands and massage onto a wet skin surface. Then you're ready to go!

DIY Natural Aftershave

You may decide to make your own natural aftershave, but before raiding your girlfriend's essential oils cabinet, keep in mind that your concoction must do three major things:

1. Have an antiseptic ingredient for killing germs
2. Moisturize your skin
3. Close your pores, blocking dirt and oil from getting in

Here's an easy one: a DIY witch hazel aftershave recipe, which combines the following:

1 cup of witch hazel
1 teaspoon of vegetable glycerin
6 drops of orange oil
3 drops of sandalwood essential oil

Simply mix together all of the above ingredients and save it in a spray bottle.

Natural Coconut Oil Balm

This is for the few good men who want to go all-out organic. Just take some virgin coconut oil, apply a tiny dab to your fingertips, and massage directly onto the skin of your face. It's easy, fast and efficient. If you are living in a colder climate, you may have to warm up the oil to make it liquid again before applying. You can also mix a few drops of oil with your favorite astringent for a more liquid, easy-to-apply DIY aftershave.

Best Practices for Using Aftershave

Founder of Miami Skin Institute Dr. S. Manjula Jegasothy, cited by AskMen, recommends that men with oily skin should use an astringent solution, while those prone to dry skin should use a lotion. "In addition, newer formulations also contain anti-aging ingredients like growth factors and Vitamin C," he adds.

Applying an aftershave is easy since it only takes a few seconds, but the extra time spent on your daily grooming routine will be worth it. Just rub a few drops of aftershave onto your hands and massage onto a wet skin surface. Then you're ready to go!
