A working shaving regimen for men thanks to Rajeev

1

Many guys have asked about acne-safe shaving creams. Alas, none is the answer if you look at the store shelves full of shaving foams and gels and creams loaded with comedogenic stuff. Some may still work, but most of them are a hit or miss.

 

@rajeev shared a shaving regimen which he has used for years without problems. A couple of his friends have used it too. One of them even has sensitive skin.

 

The regimen involves using Lifebuoy soap and a calamine lotion for soothing. His recommendation is Markal lotion. Read more about it here: https://acnemantra.com/shaving-advice-men-acne/

 

Thank you rajeev. Do you use a shaving brush to work up lather? Do you have any recommenations for a razor brand?

Hi Rajeev, thanks for all the praise. 🙂

Yeah, I’ve heard that disposable razors are better for reducing shaving irritation. Also, being a double-blade they are just enough for shaving the hair without too many blades going over the skin.

My only concern has been if either Lifebuoy or Dove could clog pores and cause breakouts. What’s been your skin like all these years? Is is clear now?

Rajeev, what all products (moisturiser,facewash, sunscreen, treatment cream) are you using right now ? Rather what products have worked or not worked for you in the past ? Will be good if you can share, we all can benefit from your experiences.
