Author Topic: What can I use as an after shave since most of them have alcohol?  (Read 506 times)

I am looking for something I can use as a substitute for aftershave with alcohol. I heard baby powder even works good after a face shave. I'm over a year out and totally been staying away from any kind of alcohol. I've noticed that barbers use baby powders. What do you think would be good? There are also some alcohol free aftershaves.

I just read an article this morning on coconut oil being good as an aftershave (among many other things.)  It's a bit oily, so just a light touch is needed and then wipe off an excess. Apparently it
has skin healing properties as well.

Aloe vera

Glycerin

An effective humectant, which means it attracts moisture to your skin and keeps it there. Itís a good solvent, many things dissolve easier into glycerin than in water or alcohol. Diluted with water, it will soften your skin
