    How do you stop these badboys? I used to get them on my neck, but luckily shaving upwards(along the grain of bristle) rather than downwards(against) has stopped this. However, now I get them on my chin, and its pretty minging really. How do I stop them?

    I saw a new advert advertising some cream/whatever that apparantly helped stop them(its a new one) but I cant remember the name of it

    I thought this was going to be complaining about the pain of shaving over spots, that really is a *****.

    As for your issue, i'm as eager for the responses as you are, i can assure you.

    Are you referring to getting spots after you have shaven?

    i dont think shaving really causes spots to be honest..... if you are really bothered benzoyl peroxide 2.5% + moisturiser sorts out everything.

    I know it sounds like common sense, but do you splash cold water onto your skin after shaving or do you apply aftershave, the cold water will close the pours on your skin, reducing the risk of infection and therefore spots.

    Get an electric shaver. It hums and tickles a bit, but it never cuts you. It's also quicker.

    yeah, but it takes a while for your skin to get use to all the friction generated by those 120 watt thingamajigs. lol. It makes your skin itchy, if you have sensitive sking. lol.

    Contains a small amount of alcohol which may cause some spots, lik I said earlier use very cold water and see what happens.

    Well, if I dont have the spots on the chin before shaving, but do after, then surely its causing the spots?

    Where do I get this benzoyl peroxide stuff? And what moisturiser ?

    You might notice that the place where you seem to get spots on your face are the same places you seem to touch most throughout a day. The best thing to do is drink lots of water, take vitamin pills, wash your face every morning and night. And most importantly of all, try not to pick them.

    I envy people who have perfect skin and do nothing to maintain it. Grrr!

    Ah but it does!
    Your diet effects lots of things in you. You are what you eat after all. This is quite true.

    Just think about what your hands touch during the day

    Its very hard to make a conscious decision to stop touching your face because I do it without knowing most the time.
