I recently started Retin A Micro (3 weeks now). I use it every night and have not really had any major problems (the usual redness, flaking and initial breakout) - except for when it comes time to shave my face. Every single shave results in angry, irritated, stinging, red, raw skin in the areas that are dry/flaky (mouth/chin). Does anyone have any solutions for this problem? I've tried changing to a different razor (single blade instead of 4-5), using more shave cream, using shave oil, exfoliating skin, taking a shower before shave, and much more. I also never shave against the grain, shave every other day and usually only do 1 pass. I'm quite desperate for a fix to this problem.
