Chin Acne and Shaving watch

    I don't have many spots but when I do they are solely around my chin. I use an electric razor and heard from my brother that spots are more likely to come through if you do shave, due to the hairs growing pushing out 'the spots' so to speak.
    I was curious if it did actually make any difference to just let the hairs grow out naturally until the spots fade away to prevent new ones to come through?
    Thanks.

    I wouldn't have thought so.

    Shouldn't think so - I don't think spots work like that.

    However, shaving (especially with a razor) can cut existing spots and leave minor acne scars (which will be visible for a while) - speaking from experience.

    Depending on how fast and how thick hair grows on your chin (I get a light smattering), a hair removal cream might help.
