    Default bleeding pores?...why?

    I've noticed recently when i shave that some of the pores near my lower lip bleed when I shave. I don't think I'm doing anything wrong. The blade is sharp. I have a good lather. I just got out of the shower. Why does it do this?

    Could be a bad angle. The whole "below-the-lip / chin" area is apparently rough with angles.

    I'm no expert though. Do the same spots bleed all the time? Is it a lot of blood or just a bit?

    I use to have the same problem with my jaw line. I found the answer to be a mixture of angle and pressure. Try to lighten up a little and try a little less angle. Hope this helps.

    Indeed....it sounds like maybe you're taking off a tad bit more than whiskers.....

    They don't really bleed much. What do you mean by less angle? More accute?
    Thanks

    Try adjusting the angle both ways, you could have the blade at too shallow of an angle, but I'd put it down as too much pressure...
    try to just remove the lather, and do more passes with less pressure to acheve the same smoothness... also make sure you are pulling the skin tight.
    make sure your lather is hot, cool lather can raise the hair folicles, and make it easier to cut them... try the hot towel treatment, and make sure your lather has had time to soak in.

    There are way too many variables to know for sure.

    I cured all my chin problems by stretching the skin sideways instead of N-S.
