Acne Skin Care for Men
Pseudofolliculitis barbae is a fancy name for the acne-like breakouts commonly called "shaving bumps." As hairs begin to grow back after shaving, they get trapped inside the follicle and cause irritation and swelling. Not everyone gets shaving bumps; people with curly hair are more susceptible, but anyone can take steps to prevent them. If you can, use an electric razor. If you prefer blade shaving, use a new, single-edge blade every time you shave. Prep the area with warm water and use a rich shaving cream. Always shave with the grain, not against it. Then, after you're done, apply a mild toner or antibacterial gel.
