Follow proper face prep as it is twice as easy to cut warm wet whisker growth than dry... Check out my video on Best Shave Prep (Below). Use a quality Safety Razor manufactured by Edwin Jagger, Feather, Merkur, or Parker, loaded with a sharp Double Edge (DE) Blade. The Safety razor utilizes a single super-sharp blade to cleanly slice the whiskers off as opposed to 3~4~5 multi-blade cartridge pulling and tugging, which causes more irritation. Use a gentle Shave Cream or Soap that is non-irritating to your acne. Apply Shaving cream or soap gently with a quality Badger Brush. Shave normally over the smooth, non-affected areas. While shaving over the areas where acne is present, tread lightly using just the weight of the razor, do not apply pressure. Only shave with the grain if possible. Perform as few passes as needed to complete your shave in a satisfactory fashion. Finish off with a cold water rinse. Apply Witch Hazel or glide an alum block over the newly shaved area. Alum is a natural mineral which is also an astringent and antiseptic which has been used as a successful acne treatment for thousands of years.
