To shave or not to shave?

Recommended Posts

I'm 3/4 months into my course of Roaccutane and most of my acne has been reduced to red marks. But there are still those few spots that refuse to shrink and I was wondering if it would be wise of me to continue shaving while they're 3D. It's not imperative that I shave because I'm only 15 and my facial hair can go by unnoticed but it's nice to be clean-shaven when possible. I'm concerned that if I shave through the spots that it will leave scars and craters, this is obviously undesirable.

What should I do?

Edge active care for sensitive skin helps me a lot as a shaving cream and the sensor excel for a razor work best. Just wipe your face gently with a clean towel once you're done shaving, dont rinse and dont use an aftershave. Edge has all kinds of vitamins and I find this is most helpful because it leaves them on your face once you're done shaving. This is what has worked best for me because I use Retin-A and so my skin is ultra sensitive and this routine doesnt irritate my skin one bit.
