Shaving on accutane advice...

When I went on accutane last year I didn't need to shave that much. My facial hair has grown in a lot more this past year and I'm looking for any tips on shaving that male post accutaners could offer. Thanks!

Well im on accutane now, and when I shave, I use shaving cream, and go very slowly, and try not to go over the same spot more then once. after that I rinse then apply moisturizer. and it seems to work pretty good for me.

Shave carefully. Get a shaving gel for sensitive skin. Moisturize afterwards. Shave whenever you think you need to, regardless of a breakout, just be careful when going over active acne.

Can I use an electric shaver? I hate shaving with a razer

yeah, I usually break out on the spot I shaved after wards, not cool. but it usually goes away pretty fast before I shave next.
