The tangy tingling sensation it causes after being splashed on is one
way to describe an after shave. Most after shaves act as astringents;
they help firm skin tone and close skin pores when applied immediately
after shaving. Many after shaves contain alcohol, which possesses
antibacterial abilities, helping to prevent infections of nicks or
shaving cuts. It also should contain glycerine and/or other
ingredients known to be beneficial to skin care. Glycerine will help
counter the drying effects on the skin, and the chafing and irritation
that can develop with dry skin. *Most drug stores contain all of the
above tinctures and oils. Herb and health food shops carry the
essential oils. Posted to bbq-digest V5 #735 by RockMc
