Shaving = 100% Certain To Have Pimples, Why?shaving

I shave my chest hair? Same.
And obviously, I have pimples on my face too.
So while I do have acne in places where I don't shave (upper back, nose, etc.), I'm wondering why I get acne in places where I usually DON'T get it if I shave those areas. I never have pimples between my eye brows, except if I shave that area.
So what gives? The blade is clean.

Also, it could be your shaving cream. The blade could be cheap, try no cream and better blade. My bf breaks out if he uses anything so he just shaves in the shower with water. His skin is perfect.
Acne requires trial and error. Hope this helps

I shave in the shower, no cream.
I am thinking it just makes the skin sensitive to something else, maybe shampoo? So it's not the shaving itself, but rather when hair is removed or cut, those areas become sensitive to something else that gets in contact with the skin.

I shave every night because it actually helps my face stay clear. If you check out the night routine in my signature you will see exactly what I do. It may or may not help you. Your skin may just be sensitive to the razor. In any case, I highly recommend using a non scented shaving cream, such as the one made by Aveeno. I swear by that stuff now haha. If that still doesn't help, you may want to try different razors. The main thing you want to avoid is doing anything that would actually irritate the skin, such as dry shaving with no cream, shaving against the grain, shaving already irritated skin and things like that.
