Welcome! you've come to the right forum! I agree the best place for an array of advice is the shave clinic and Newby check in
I'm 57 and after having exposed my face to 35 years of constant extreme weather people who are trying to be nice say it has allot of character. I like the futur. After you follow the above suggestion of letting your face heal over, (if you can) start out with no more pressure than the weight of the razor set at maybe 2 and follow whatever advice you get along the way. I think you'll see the skin problems diminish and eventually disappear.
Keep your blades DRY
