Prior to DE shaving, I shaved in the morning and in the shower. My only preparation was washing my face before applying Gillette Gel or something of the sort.
If it makes any sense, I have oily/dry skin. In the winter, the dry part is more apparent, so I put lotion on my face after showering. In the summer, I do not really need it.
Since my skin is a bit oily, I am prone to a zit or two. I also get an occasional ingrown hair.
Since I started DE shaving, I wash my face, use pre-shave (either Origins Easy Slider or Em's), lather (KMF or Em's and last two shaves were with CF Lime), shave, rinse with warm water, apply witch hazel, splash with cold water, apply either Castle Forbes Lime AS or Em's AS. Since the temps are a bit cooler outside, I also need a bit of lotion afterwards. Last night, I washed my face with Dr. Bronner's citrus, lathered with CF lime cream, rinsed with warm water, applied witch hazel, splashed with cold and used CF lime AS. The result seemed much better.
Since I started DE shaving 3 weeks ago, I have probably accumulated two months worth of zits.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
