to help you, we need some more info. are you using any shaving cream. if you are, what kind? how are you shaving (i.e. electric or manual)?

Change ur blades on a disposable every week or so... while I'm shaving I usually keep the blade under super hot water to kill off any bacteria that might be lurking on the blades or from dead skin cells (ew) or whatever. As the Regimen states, use plenty of soap as lather (ie. Purpose bar, Cetaphil, etc)... shave... cold rinse with water.

I've never had a problem. If anything... shaving regularly helps clear up my face. Facial hair causes all kinds of oil on the face

ok... so i shave with gillette mach 3 blade and a super max 3 shaving gel. it contains tea tree oil, vitamin e, and aloe vera. i shave at night before washing my face. after shaving, i wash my face with cetaphil.

then maybe one or two days after shaving, i already can feel a pimple forming on my chin. this always happens. so im very sure that i get this from shaving.

please help me! thanks. smile.gif

I use a gillette mach 3 also but an aloe vera (only) shaving cream

I used to use tea tree cream but this really irritated and dried my skin, causing a breakout. This may be your problem.

If not, try shaving less often or try shaving after washing your face with plain hot water - this will dcerease your chances of a breakout.

Oh and also - if you take your time shaving, slowly and gracefully!! you will avoid irritaion and hopefully breakouts! (and ure less likely to cut any acne!!)

cheers

i use a nivea cool skin shaver, wet/dry, i prefer to use it wet with the moisturizing lotion. or you can use a lotion to suit your skin, also use nivea sensetive moisture rich with vitimins and camomile lotion. i shave with this then rinse my face and apply the shaving gel again and leave for a while and rinse.

The mach 3 turbo breaks me out. If I use any regular 2 blade + Aveeno Theraputic shave gel, no break out smile.gif

so why do you think we break out from this? is it only from irritation?

Electric is the way to go. Non electric is old technology.
