    Try using a facial scrub before you shave it will help get rid of the dry skin that could induce acne, then after you shave use a facial lotion for dry skin

    you sure is from shaving? if it the shaving cream or the razor is irritating your skin, you may have sensitive skin. you need to change up on you shaving products your using. shave every 2 weeks let your skin calm after shaving by leaving on a warm towel on to the area you shave on.

    You are most likely allergic to your shaving cream. Try using a different brand of shaving cream. Try to find a kind that is hypoallegentic.

    old razor or crappy shaving cream, get an after shave balm (not alchohol aftershave) it really helps.

    also are you shaving against the grain>??

    try a gillette fusion (for a man or a woman)

    u don't just get "pimples when you shave. they are just ingrown hairs. they don't haf to be white to be ingrown. and ingrowns do take a long time to go away...u might wan tto use some soothing lotion but the best thing to do is just wait it through. i know its painful, but u goota go trhough it.
