5 Tips for Shaving Skin with Acne

Acne and puberty go hand in hand. For men, it is quite difficult to deal with acne when they have to shave every single day. Most men with acne hate to shave and this affects their confidence level.

Shaving skin with acne doesn’t have to be neck-breaking and hence we have found the right technique for you. With this great technique and the best shaving products, you will be able to shave without worrying about your acne.

  • Prepare your Skin

At first, prepare your skin for shaving. It doesn’t mean you are ready to shave your skin after just splashing some water on your face, but it means to make your skin completely free from bacteria and oil. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and then apply a soothing and antioxidant shaving lotion.

The Birch, Spruce, and Juniper Face Lotion by Heliotrope San Francisco prepares skin for shaving without dryness and irritation.

This is a complete shaving lotion as it contains natural ingredients like spruce, birch, and juniper. The birch is a toner and supports a healthy skin tone, spruce energizes the face, and the juniper controls the sebum production and helps to unclog blocked pores. This shaving lotion also contains antioxidant which helps to protect the acneic skin against any damage.


  • Apply Shaving Cream
After you have prepared your skin for shaving then it is time to apply shaving cream. Shaving cream is necessary as it helps to lift the facial hair up. If you are looking for a perfect shaving cream or gel, then our Aloe and Comfrey Shave Gel can do the best job. This shaving gel contains comfrey and aloe vera which heals, moisturizes, and soothes the skin. This gel is rich in vitamins and also helps to lift the hair shaft to promote close shave and avoid razor bumps.

  • Always Use a Clean Razor

To get rid of acneic skin, use a fresh and clean blade. The oil and bacteria can build up on a blade which can infect the hair follicles, so it is best to use a clean razor. After using a blade, rinse it completely and use an alcohol wipe to disinfect it for future use.

  • Shave the Right Way

If you have acneic skin, then don’t shave against the grain. Shaving against the grain can increase the risk of ingrown hair and razor bumps so always shave downwards to not irritate acne.  

  • Never Skip Aftershave

An aftershave is as necessary as a morning coffee, so never skip it. Use an aftershave lotion or a balm to soothe irritated skin after you are done shaving. This will help to heal the skin and control sebum production. Our Cucumber and Aloe Aftershave Balm has a hydrating, cooling, moisturizing, and soothing effect and is for all skin types.
