Again with the cold water rinse? (teasing )
Just cold water for months now.
Warm water, cold water, alum, cold water, witch hazel, unrefined shea butter, aftershave, cologne, pose in front of mirror, repeat "you look marvelous" three times, strut around house and call to Bride to enjoy the scenery, bask in compliments, drive to work, and make everyone's day.
I find this ritual to help with my low self-esteem. Other than than, I don't do anything special.
...then stand outside for an hour in a strong prairie breeze, after ensuring that neither man nor animal is downwind.
Unless we need to thin the herd. Veg will do in small and weaker bovine animals. It's not for everyone, just the heroes.
Cold water rinse. Witch Hazel. Aftershave and balm if needed.
Warm/cold water rinse. Cold towel, Dominello Vitali Calming Post Shave Moisturizer, finished off with one of my AS's(Clubman, Clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum Aramis, Canoe).
Usually Old Spice after shave and bed.

Eat breakfast and take a nap. Otherwise I just go to work......
Hot water rinse, alum or styptic as needed, towel dry, after shave (high alcohol content), aftershave balm or face lotion as needed.
COLD water splash then aftershave. Don japanese Soto Zen kimono. Pour english breakfast tea from a brown betty with milk and sugar. Turn on Alan Watts lecture and greet the sunrise. Plot the overthrow of the government.
Cold water wash, rinse with an alcohol a/s , then a rub down of balm.
Wash face with cold water
Lotion or whipped shea butter
Hot water rinse
I add a tiny bit of cream made by Deep Sea Cosmetics and massage with the hot water.
Cold water rinse
Lavender scented which hazel
Add a tiny amount of Nivea cream, using the wh to dilute and massage in.
Add as or balm.
It may be a little over the top, but I never experience discomfort post shave.
Does the high alcohol content dry your face?
1. Witch hazel splash
2 diy Shave oil balm
3 Aloe with hemp and tea oil

Tazorac, I like the astringent & sanitizing effect of the alcohol. Plus, I love the burn.
I moisturize with my product of choice directly after the AS application to counteract any drying.
Works for me.
Now retired , I ALWAYS have the time!
After rinsing off the soap and do a pat dry, I use my OWN concoction of aftershave balm.
Here is my present fantastic mix.
Thayer witch Hazel
LUCKY TIGER aftershave
LAB SERIES Anti aging serum
Nivea Post shave balm sensitive.
Fill several amber pharmaceutical bottles and one travel size plastic bottle with spout top.
I'm delighted with the outcome. I even apply after I wash my face without shaving at night. My 76 year old skin has visibly improved.
. Even my brother and our close friends swear by it.
Rinse, splash, and in drier months a balm a bit later on in the evening.
