It is common to get scattered pimples after shaving one's face with a razor.

How can it be prevented?

There are after-shaves - some with alcohol, others without - as well as lotions and gels. Do these work?

    Welcome! On HealthSE, we can't answer individual advice questions, and your question was likely to be closed. I edited to remove the indivdual information, as well as to correct your usage of acne (there is a difference between acne and post-shaving pimples or razor bumps), and now the question is more answerable. If you disagree please revert it and edit it as you see fit. :) – DoctorWhom Aug 30 '17 at 16:02

  • "Post-shaving pimples" are also called razor bumps, ingrown hair or pseudofolliculitis barbae. There are a lot of articles available, like this: dermnetnz.org/topics/folliculitis-barbae . – Jan Mar 22 '18 at 13:42
