Shaving with Rosacea


Recommended Posts

"If you have any skin conditions — eczema, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, or anything else that can be literally hacked off your face — you’ll want to stay away from the straight razor. "With those conditions, you don’t want a close shave," says Dr. Shari Lipner, dermatologist at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian. "If you need a close shave for work, get an electric razor or a two-bladed razor that doesn’t cut so close." If your skin is just naturally dry, pick up a daily moisturizer. The more hydrated your skin, the less likely it is to get irritated."

Do You Have the Skin for a Straight-Razor Shave?, By  Max Plenke, Men's Journal, Shaving 

I use the Gillette Fusion Razor and found that electric razors were more rough on my face causing redness. So you will have to figure out what is best for you.
