You Asked! Expert A's to Your Skin Care Q's: Men's Shaving Products

Does your shaving leave you with stubble, bumps, and rough skin? Our experts give their top picks for smoothing out the process.

Q: After shaving, I often break out and my skin seems rougher. What can I use? Do I really need a product designed for men's skin? continued...

 

One more point: Men are naturally more acne-prone, and the abrasive nature of shaving when acne is present can be problematic. Plus, entrapped facial hair frequently causes new breakouts or worsens old ones. Fried tells his male patients to try an electric razor rather than a straight blade and, after shaving, to apply a 1% or lower hydrocortisone cream to treat razor irritation.
