Word of the day "Afterschäf"

I had real problems believing that this is really a word in German but it would seem that this is now the terminus technicus for après rasage in German. It shouldn't really surprise me, in French we have le shampooing for shampoo - somehow the addition of the continuous present adds something to the act of washing your hair.
So perhaps we will soon see the word "Afterät" for after dinner mints in German. Maybe not.
