Don’t neglect post-shave care. Always use an after-shave lotion or balm, preferably an alcohol-free, non-greasy formula, which will provide the best relief and protection after shaving.
Stay on top of things. In between shaves, use a beard balm or oil to keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and moisturized. This will also limit in-grown hair and skin irritation, while promoting healthy beard and stubble growth — which is particularly important if you want to transition back to a beard in the winter.
