Acne in shaving area

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

One day I shaved a bit too hard and pimples formed on my cheek areas where I shave. The problem is, those pimples are still there, and when I shave again, it just aggrivates them and keeps them from dying out or fading. As you can see from here on it will be a never ending cycle.

What can I do to get rid of them? Should I put BP and moisteruizer on it after I shave?

Thanks.

When you shave do it carefully now on. tRY TO stay away from those pimples while shaving and if you have to go over them do it slowly and apply bp and lotion afterward like normally.

I would avoid those area when shaving, and be very careful to not touch it when you shave. Since it's harder to get around it, it's easier to pluck it off. It's a bit painful if you're not used to it lol.

eh, maybe for some people, but ive never been fond of an electric razor. i find blades are just alot easier and give me a better shave.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the reply. I have TRIED doing it very carefully, it STILL seems to turn red/cut. I am guessing the stubs I have in those areas are very sensitive. I am going to let my hair grow out, apply BP &moist, shave every 4 or 5 days or so (for the weekend). Keep repeating until its gone.

What do you think?
