Should I try to avoid pimples with my razor when I shave my face?

If you have acne, take extra care when you shave your face. Wet your beard with lukewarm water before you shave. Use a sharp razor, which is less likely to cause nicks and skin irritation that can make acne worse. As you shave over pimples, use a light touch. That will help prevent nicking a pimple. Talk to your dermatologist for more information.
