Aftershave splash is a classic finish to a traditional shaving routine. Popularized in the 20th century, this refreshing product serves multiple purposes: it soothes the skin post-shave, helps to prevent infection from any minor cuts, and leaves a pleasing fragrance. Made typically from a combination of antiseptic ingredients, essential oils, and alcohol, it's applied to the face immediately after shaving to provide a pleasant cooling and tightening sensation.
1. Rinse your face: After shaving rinse your face thoroughly with cool water to remove any remaining shaving cream or soap. Cool water helps to close the pores and soothe the skin after shaving.
2. Pat your face dry: Gently pat your face dry with a clean towel. Avoid rubbing, as this can cause irritation, especially on freshly shaved skin.
3. Shake the bottle: Shake your aftershave splash bottle well to ensure that the ingredients are mixed properly.
4. Pour aftershave into your palm: Carefully pour a small amount of aftershave splash into your palm. Start with a small amount, as you can always add more if needed.
5. Rub your hands together: Rub your hands together to spread the aftershave evenly on your palms and warm it slightly.
6. Apply the aftershave splash: Gently pat the aftershave onto your freshly shaved areas, making sure to cover all the skin that came into contact with the razor. Avoid rubbing, as this can cause irritation.
7. Let the aftershave dry: Allow the aftershave splash to air-dry on your face. This usually takes only a few moments. As the aftershave dries, it will help to tone and tighten your skin, as well as provide a cooling and soothing sensation.
8. Apply moisturizer: Gently apply aftershave balm all over the face to hydrate your skin and maintain its natural moisture balance. If you find that you have very dry skin or live in a dry climate you can apply shave oil to the freshly shaved areas first, let it absorb for a few moments then apply the aftershave balm as instructed.
By following these steps, you can effectively apply an aftershave splash after shaving to help soothe, tone, and refresh your skin.
