I always manage to cut myself while shaving, especially on the lip, any advice?

Shaving cream, warm up your face. Smooth strokes with a razor. You can also stretch out the skin on curves so you don't scrape against any bone and cut yourself.

I just use my beard trimmer without the measuring things.

Shaving just flares my skin up and the day after stubble is uncomfortable as hell.

Pour very hot water over the razor for 10 seconds before using it.
Splash warm water over your face and squirt shaving gel into your hand
Apply to face and neck in small circular motions ensuring stubble is suitably rubbed
Shave with short stokes and with the grain. Rinse the blade often
Using the muscles of your face alone, pull your lips over your teeth when shaving those areas
Using your fingers, pull the skin of your neck to one side and then the other in order to shave the skin that usually covers your Adams apple
When you're finished, wash your face with water as cold as the tap will give you
Apply moisturiser

Use blade or razor slowly and smoothly. Don't do it in hurry.

Gillette pro glide but often just some regular disposable ones with 4/5 blades.

baby oil, recently started using it instead of any soaps or shaving creams. Far less drag on the skin, far less irritation and far smoother.

also, shave in the direction of the hair, ( down mostly) not against the grain.

I always wash with hot water and soap. then apply foam/gel and lather, then slowly shave. even slowly, it takes maybe three mins.
Rushing and cutting takes longer with emergency first aid.

you can buy a styptic stick, that closes cuts, but it does sting

Use/buy an electric shaver? <£25 will get you a very decent one. You'd have to be very special to cut yourself with one of those, almost impossible to cut yourself.

As Mayhem™ said - don't rush it and you should be fine... I don't think I've ever cut myself whilst shaving.
