In week two of the 37 week shave project with VanYulay I talked about how important a good pre and post prep shaving routine was. I only talked about half of the routine pertaining to pre-shave oil and After Shave splash. Today I want to talk about the other half of what should be included in your pre and post shave routine as well. The other half of the routine is the After Shave balm and moisturizer that falls at the end of your routine. First I want to strengthen my opinion of the importance of a good pre and post prep routine. I said it once and I’ll say it again and again. A good pre and post prep routine is what I consider to be vital in a shaving routine. Am I saying that without one you can’t get a good shave? No, absolutely not, but I will say that if you start practicing a good routine now your shave routine will improve as long as you are using product with natural ingredients that will add quality attributes to the overall health of your skin.
If you could increase and protect the hydration level of your skin and increase the softness of your skin while adding suppleness would you? I think you would, and you can by adding some simple products to your shaving routine before and after you shave. Pre-shave oil, After Shave splash, After Shave balm and moisturizer are some of the products you have to choose from. Of course you don’t have to use all of them to increase the hydration and suppleness level in your skin but it sure would help. After Shave balm is one of the products from Van Yulay that I have had the luxury of adding to my post shave routine. The After Shave balm contains many natural ingredients that bring quality to your shaving routine as well as your pre and post shave routine every time.
Glycerin, Emu Oil, Abyssinian Seed Oil, Argan Oil,Tea Tree Oil, Hydrolyzed Oat, Holy Basil, Aloe Vera are some of the natural ingredients found in the After Shave from VanYulay that really helps your skin treat a lot of ailments such as acne, wrinkles, scars, cuts and scrapes, burns, sunburn, warts and dandruff, itching of insect bites and chicken pox, psoriasis and eczema has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce skin inflammations, blistering and itchiness, helps maintain and protect the water content in your skin deeply hydrating and moisturizing your skin, helps fight age spots reducing wrinkles and fine lines by helping to increase collagen in the skin fighting the aging process, helps increase the elasticity of the skin, A natural skin toner and natural exfoliator.
The After Shave balm from Van Yulay has a thick consistency that dries into the skin quickly and does not leave a greasy residue behind but leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and supple after every shave and with very little product needed. It only took one to two dime amounts of After Shave balm to generously coat the skin on my dome and face. There are many different fragrances to choose from on their website. Once the After Shave dried into my skin I finished my nightly shave off with the ‘DUDE’ moisturizer. The ‘DUDE’ natural skin moisturizer contains several natural ingredients such as Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Prilla Oil, GrapeSeed Oil, Avocado Oil, Glycerin, Shea Butter, Emu Oil, Aloe Vera that has many benefits for your skin.
