In brief: Avoid closest shave
Before shaving wash face with warm soap and water. Rinse off and then apply shving gel.
Avoid trying to get the closest shave in the world since this increases the risk of ingrown hairs. If you only get ingrown hairs on your neck, and the hair is dark, you could consider laser hair removal.
