In brief: Pseudofolliulitis

Some people do not shave but use either an electric razor or clippers.

In brief: The Perfect Shave

Try this: Take a shower, use a facial cleanser, rinse, pat face dry, and within 3 minutes apply a pre-shave oil to seal in warm moisture.
Use a moisturizer-containing shave cream. Using a double- or triple-blade razor, only shave WITH the grain, and then only ACROSS the grain of the beard (NEVER SHAVE AGAINST THE GRAIN)! Rinse with water, and finish with an after-shave cream.
