Who else has this?  I cannot be the only one.  Granted, I am no werewolf, but, when I rub my hands on my face, it is quite noticeable.  This is after getting baby-bottom smooth results.  I was sick Sunday, but, I shaved every morning since then, this week, Monday - Today.  Still, the 5 O'Clock Shadow is real. 

Obviously, I only shave once a day.  

I use a nice hand & face soap at around noon, to keep the face supple, and, use shampoo & conditioner on the 5 O'Clock Shadow, during my evening shower.  

What does everyone else do to alleviate this?  I am glad this happens, but, would like the stubble to be as soft as it possibly can be.

I think sand paper stubble is normal. That is why I do not bother with BBS shaves. After a few hours the sand paper is back. Just part of the game when you can grow a real beard.

I thought this was normal. Short stubble feels rough to the touch.

Assuming you shave in the morning, 5 o'clock is definitely long enough to produce sandpaper growth for most.  Might be early evening if I've really taken my time or used, say, one of my Old Style Gillettes but those shaves are the exceptions.

I tend be finished shaving, and, out of the bathroom by 5 AM.   By 5 PM, there is enough stubble to shampoo, and, condition.  I was just wondering if anyone knew of any tricks, besides washing/conditioning.  

I have started using some Suave skin lotion, on it, and, that helps.  

It is really quite irritating, though.  I scrapped my knuckles on it, the other day.  The hair on my chin can be as hard as a cheese grater.

I do not think there are any tricks. It's just a guy thing.

I started using Suave lotion, on it.  Basically, when I use the rest room, I wash my hands.  Afterwards, I use lotion on my hands.  I have for years.  Just the other day, a while after posting this, I decided to rub the excess lotion, from my hands, onto the stubble.  This helped, tremendously.  That seems to be the only thing to do.  I wish I would have thought of this before now, but, I am grateful to have now thought of so doing.

As a wetshaving fan, I want to do this but I'm not sure my skin could take it unless I use a very mild razor.  I suppose it could be conditioned though so maybe, hmmm... Dodgy

That right there is dedication.  I enjoy the sand paper feel though so I will not try that. Plus not sure the ole face would take to that very well.

Without too much exaggeration, I knew a guy in college who could almost grow a beard at will, if he concentrated hard enough! He was a legend.

Now, that is impressive.  My face can only take once a day.

Yeah, since I have started using the Suave lotion, it has been much better.  Also, I wash up, around noon, and, shampoo, and, condition my beard in the evening, before going to bed.  This helps get me through the night.

It takes me about two weeks to grow a beard.  After two-and-a-half - three weeks, or, so, it will look unkept if I neglect to shave between my cheeks, and, eyes, and, also, the neck.  Between three, or, four weeks, I need a trim, from the hair stylist.

I am going to time this, tomorrow.  I will note the time I finish shaving, and, the time I first notice growth upon my face.
