Wondering how to shave with acne? Shaving with acne can be difficult, but the following tips will help you get a close, smooth shave, no matter what shape your skin is in.
How to Shave With Acne
Wash and hydrate your face and neck before shaving. A face wash or facial scrub will warm, deep clean, and help soften facial hair before you shave. You also should hydrate skin with warm water for at least three minutes to soften your facial hair and make it easier to cut.
Choose a shave gel designed to remove dirt and oil, such as GilletteLabs Rapid Foaming Shave Gel.
Go easy—use light, gentle strokes when shaving. This is especially important for areas of your skin that are broken out. The razor should do the work, not you.
Apply a light, post-shave moisturizer after you shave. This will help ensure that your skin does not overcompensate for dryness by producing more oil.
Wash your face at night with a soap-free scrub to remove the daily buildup of oil.
