It is very important to apply an aftershave cream to give complete nourishment to your skin after a close shave. The vulnerable new skin that gets exposed due to razor friction after the hair removal needs a lot of care or else it can break out into rashes and razor burn. An aftershave cream closes the skin pours while cooling it to make it feel smooth and moisturized. There are several brands with different aftershave creams. Here is a list of some of the best on the market.
