In brief: Retinol
In addition to dr williams's recommendation to avoid shaving too closely, i typically add a retinol (otc) or prescription tretinoin to the regimen.
This class of medication causes peeling, and helps the ingrowns hairs to surface.

In brief: Pores/ingrown hair
One of the most common causes of ingrown hairs is too close shaving - especially in hairs that normallly curl try to avoid the triple and quad razors that cut the hair off below the skin line.
A fine pair of tweezers can help remove ingrown hairs - and a good antibacterial scrub should help exfoliate and prevent infected pores.
