What to do for AFter-shave

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I just started the regimen and was wondering what is recommended for after-shave? Should I just use the regular night moisturizer from my regimen? If not then what is recommended as an after shave. Any info appreciated. Thanks

what i usually do is shave in the morning right after the shower. i use the gillette sensor razor (2 blades) with aveeno shaving cream. once i'm finished shaving, I then wash my face with the cleanser and then proceed with the regimen.

Ideally, since you're on the Regimen, aftershave is not recommended because it's just another product to get in the way. The Regimen is three steps and three products:

1) Unmedicated Cleanser

2) 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide

3) Non-comedogenic Moisturizer

I don't use any kind of aftershave and I have super sensitive skin. However, if you really want to use something to "cool" your face down, jojoba oil is perfectly fine and won't hinder the BP from being effective.

what I use is the Dans AHA+ it works great! it moisturizes and the aha combats dead skincells that can clog up pores.

I shave at night

I shower

then shave

then wash my face in the sink

apply bp

then aha

of course you could probly switch the aha and bp around
