Too much peeling.The shaving itself will fall off.Acne or anti-aging products that contain strong exfoliants (such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid) or pre-shave scrubs may combine too much with shaving.

Be sure to wash the razor thoroughly, rubbing it with alcohol or using a product like Teneo to clean the razor for you.
