    Ya, what you need is something with a glycerine base. Try this Musgo gel:
    http://www.classicshaving.citymax.co...960/375310.htm
    if you look around, you might find it cheaper elsewhere.
    If you want some luxury stuff that's worth it's price (about $35 a bottle), go for the scented aftershave balm from Trufitt & Hill.
    http://www.truefittandhill.com/Merch...tegory_Code=AB
    Their glycerine based shaving cream is very good, too.

    What glycerine does is it penetrates a little way into the skin, and it acts as a "humectant" to pull water out of the air and into the skin, thus keeping skin hydrated. Other (cheaper) stuff usually has petroleum based stuff (vaseline, petrolatum, mineral oil, propylene glycol) that coats the skin with a moisture barrier and keeps moisture inside from evaporating. The problem with that is that it clogs the pores, and leaves the skin feeling greasy. It helps, but glycerine based stuff is better.

    You should avoid using aftershaves with alcohol in 'em, period. They were useful years ago when men usually got shaved every morning at the corner barber shop, and the alcohol kept skin infections down. When Mr. Gillette invented the disposable razor blade and guys started shaving at home, they kept using aftershave, needlessly, and the practice continues unabated today.

    Ya, get a good quality balm for after a hot shower, and you'll be fine.

    Too bad it only brings out "natural beauty" and doesn't create beauty. I'd overdose on that sh*t.

    Back in the Roman times, royal b*tches used to have guys jiz in bowls and then they would moisturize their faces with it. Seems like it would be right up your ally... Hehe, just kidding ya, Deca ...don't hurt me!

    I'm on Accutane and my gf got this sh-t called Milk or something like that. Its just some kinda moisturizer, but it works well for me.

    EDIT: The stuff I use doesn't have any oils and it won't clog up your pores or anything. I'll check out the exact name when I go home.

    Try showerin with dove soap and dont take such a hot shower. Make the temp a little cooler and use the Dove 1/4 moisturizer bar, and you should see a definate improvement. But hot water does a number on dry skin.

    if its reallyt a problem and you got redness, ask your doctor for elidel. Better hope you got a good health insurance plan, the stuff is close to 100.

    I'm the exact same way... the moment I get out of the shower!

    Try this stuff bro, its by far the best I've used. It's by St. Ives and its called 24 Hour Moisture. This stuff really works for 24 hours without leaving your skin greasy or shiny. DOnt use too much, because you dont need much!

    An ex GF of mine had me use velocity by mary kay...its a "lightweight" moisturizer, so it wont clogg pores either. I had tried all kinds of stuff, and this one did the trick.

    Aveeno has some good products as well. Also, you may want to use a heavier moisturizer in the winter than in the summer. I also think that Nivea has a line for men that is pretty good.

    Try some Aveeno products those always work for me some might be pricey but go to a pharamcy where they are the cheapest. And maybe its the facial soap you use it might be too strong and is drying out skin maybe you shouldnt use it so much cut it down a use or 2. Or even if you use any face pads that have alcohol in them.

    aveeno lotion is hyperallergnic (sp?) and won't cause future breakouts.

    Deca - what do you mean out of the shower? We saw you in the bubble bath pics earlier today. I just wanted to set the record straight.

    Don't buy anything labeled just for men since that only means a jacked up price.

    A guy I know Cough* cough*

    Uses that cheap womens face cream from the dollar store with alpha hydroxy/collagen/retinol. This same guy used to spend 40-60$ per jar of some other stuff and the stuff from the dollar store works just as well.

    Something else that works really well is Udder Cream, sold at better Target stores everywhere: www.uddercream.com
    Costs about $4 for a jar, less for a tube.
