Best Electric Razor For Mild Acne?

Recommended Posts

So my dermatologist told me the truth to avoiding acne while shaving is to use an electric razor. From what I've seen they are all very expensive. Any suggestions on some? I tried regular shaving and it just doesn't work well, leaves my skin irritated and I don't think it's right for me.

List your top 3 electric razors if you'd like, or one will just do.

i have an older typical 3 circular head type razor and never found it much better than wetshaving in terms of irritation... I had to go over and over and over on some spots to cut 2 or 3 hairs that just refused to cooperate and actually enter the cracks to get chopped. Not to mention I had to press down relatively hard to get a somewhat smooth finish but that also resulted in me hacking up my neck and chin in an attempt to get a baby smooth result. The razor came with a clipper/sideburn trimmer attachment that is basically a clipper at "0" setting so I tried that and never looked back. it leaves a 1mm stubble or so but at least it's uniform and consistent and no irritating whatsoever.

I have always gotten on better with Rotary's rather than Foil razors. Philips do the best from what I've heard/experienced. My latest one was like £70 and came with a free cleaning machine from Amazon.

I shave at night every other day. Your face needs to be dry beforehand so I splash some water on there, wait 15 mins'ish and then shave.
