Cleansing is the most overlooked aspect of a man’s skin care routine. Cleansers are the bread and butter of the cleansing routine. Its cornerstone. Its foundation. Its bedrock. Coupled with a moisturizer, they are the one-two punch of the whole skin care routine. If cleansing in general is the most overlooked aspect of a man’s skin care routine, than a cleanser is the most overlooked product. This article goes into detail about the different products make up the cleansing phase.
Your face takes a beating from stress, diet, and the elements, especially during the cold winter season. Using an aftershave balm helps to moisturize and heal freshly exfoliated skin that was exposed while shaving. The latest offering from the Bluebeards Revenge brand is designed to complete the ultimate shaving experience for "real men" with thick stubble. While the skull and crossbones symbol usually represents poison or treachery, The Bluebeards Revenge Post Shave Balm bears the mark and actually helps to soothe and comfort.
Potassium alum mineral salt, the potassium double sulfate of aluminum, is a unique mineral because it has antiseptic and astringent properties that are particularly useful for wet shavers. When rubbed on wet skin, alum provides a mild stinging sensation similar to that of an alcohol-based aftershave splash and it helps to close pores and tighten the skin while also sealing any small nicks from shaving. Prior to the invention of antibiotics, alum blocks were used regularly to prevent infections that might have occurred from nicks or cuts. While alum blocks are typically cut into square or rectangular blocks, a more innovative alum product has been designed for the traditional wet shaver, the RazoRock.
