    Weird, I break out more when I have to shave everyday. Perhaps you could replicate the process by exfoliating and washing when you would usually shave?

    i think it's because we subconsciously touch our face more when there is some scruff on it.

    I think having new facial hair always feels a little uncomfortable, leaving me to unconciously touch/scratch my face more often than I would if clean-shaven. This might be contributing to your problem.

    Try keeping you face moist with lotion between shavings to prevent irritation.

    I use corn huskers lotion. If you don't want to smell like old man, then any oil-free lotion should do.
