Your body is telling you to wash the grease and dirt off of your face, you dirty ****ing hippie. The razor bumps are caused by bacteria.

Hygiene works, bro.

I wash my face atleast 5 times a day, probably more. I think if anything it would be greasy because of that.

Most shaving problems are related to sloppy preparation.

I have a very strong beard that is hard to shave. Nevertheless I use a single-blade razor.
Everything else is just capitalist bull****, don't buy that crap. This is how men have shaved for hundreds of years, nobody needs 5 or 6 blades on a razor that vibrates and shit.

Back on topic: it is ALL about preparation in order to make the hair soft. It takes me around 5 minutes, and it should take you this long also, otherwise you are not doing it correctly. Btw there are a lot of video instructions on how to shave on youtube.

Also, never forget to use aftershave!

This shit.

Although I'll never ditch my Fusion.

At least until I get a straight razor.

Unless you have absurdly greasy skin, this is probably just making your face more irritated. 5 times is overkill.

use fewer blades.

first of all, some people are just prone to this skin-wise. especially black guys due to the wiry, curly nature of their hair. but these razors with three and four blades can do a little too good of a job. instead of cutting the hair, the extra blades serve to pull the hair out a bit to cut it. so instead of the hair being cut at the skin, it's cut below. when it grows back, it increases the likelihood of in-grown hairs.

I think I have this too. Since I've started shaving daily it's extremely rare that my face is completely lacking pimples.

It's not that hard.

Don't shave against the grain, use shaving soap, get a straight razor.

Works for me.

I just shaved (not even with a razor, with an electric shaver) and 5-ish hours later I have pimples n shit on my face.
Dude, if you have shit in your face, I think it might not be the shaving that's causing your pimples.

You guys saying not to shave against the grain, is it really that big of a deal? My razor's shitty so it looks terrible unless I do that.

Yes. Also get a new razor.

Edit: You can always do another round of shaving with the grain, or sideways.

change your blade often, dont be cheap. rinse blade and face with cold water, not hot or warm. grow out your facial hair and only trim it or let it grow out completely in those certain high risk areas. i am growing out my chin hairs. gf loves it so theres a plus.

shaving with the grain may help sensitive skin but if you have no problems then shave against the grain because its more smooth for the ladies.

This is the worst idea ever. That just makes everything worse.


People post jokes in these threads, and you're always the first to home in and take them seriously. Stop it, it's really cringe-worthy.

Definitely use a razor if you currently use an electric shaver. I'd think that your problems are just because you seem to be new at shaving and have sensitive skin. Take the time to properly prepare beforehand, and clean up afterwards with aftershave. I like the above idea of a high-alcoholic aftershave; the burning means its working!

It doesn't usually cause problems, but it can be more problematic for sensitive skin I think, and it also increases the likeliness for in-grown hairs I believe.

You are not TS.

If you have problems with razor burn and associated pimples, and you shave against the grain, that is most likely the problem.

If you have no problem with shaving against the grain, good for you.

It opens the pores where your hairs come from and it causes them to dry. Use lotion after you shave to keep the face from drying.
