Choosing your aftershave serum can be tricky. Do you buy it just because it smells good or cheaper than other brands? Or, because you get a lot of benefits from it? True, most of us want value for money. We want products that give us maximum efficiency and effectiveness. We call it smart-buying. So, the next question you might ask is, “What are the qualities of a good aftershave serum you can buy at a good price?”
Pick an Aftershave That Works For You
There are a lot of products you can choose from in the market: aftershave balm or cream, aftershave lotion, aftershave gel, and more. Some may be harsh, irritate, and dry up your skin because it’s alcohol-based. Some have strong fragrances that are not pleasing to your nose and especially to other people. But wait, there’s more. Here comes the aftershave serum: mild, smooth, light, and smells just right.
Desired qualities of your aftershave serum:
This aftershave serum is from a plant source such as herbs, fruits, vegetables, spices, seeds, nuts, and grains. It means it doesn’t have ingredients taken from animals or animal products. It has no pesticide or petroleum-based fertilizer so it is safe on your skin because it does not contain damaging substances or chemicals. It’s the nearest thing nature can give you.
Anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial
As you shave your face, you could not avoid irritating the outer layer of your skin. Improper use of razors can be a common cause of skin burns and cuts. Or you are in a hurry to go to work or an appointment, so you clumsily pass through the razor on your cheek. Plant-based aftershave serum contains ingredients that are anti-inflammatory and at the same time anti-bacterial.
An example of this is an aftershave serum that contains cannabidiol or CBD, a compound from the hemp variety called Cannabis Saliva. CBD has an inflammatory effect on the skin cells which helps reduce redness, irritations, and skin breakouts. It also soothes and may be useful for those with sensitive skin. It has also an anti-bacterial property which can kill a wide range of bacteria.
Can protect and hydrate the skin
The natural antioxidants from plants such as polyphenols, carotenoids, vitamin E, and vitamin C help strengthen and repair the cells of your skin. Also, lipids and fat content increase your skin’s elasticity and keep it hydrated. Your skin receives nutrients from your aftershave serum to nourish and protect it not only from your razor blade but also from external factors such as dust, pollutants, sun exposure, and smoking.
