You will see the long term benefits if you just take the time to care for your skin.
Make time to unwind and reduce the amount of stress from your life that you can. Your skin can become damaged by too much stress. Your complexion will clear up if you reduce environmental and emotional stressors. It will no doubt improve upon other areas of your life also.
Do not shave if your skin that is dry. Shaving skin while it is dry can cause more irritation and redness to the surface of your skin. After shaving, use a lotion on your skin. This will moisturize and soothe your skin.
