If you're anything like my brother then your problems may be as simple as having a poor shaving routine. Here are my tips:

Warm your face up with warm, not hot, water and exfoliate before shaving.
Use a gel (King Of Shaves [non-menthol] or Gillette Clean Skin, for example) as opposed to a foam (for improved smoothness).
Only ever use a two-bladed (minimum) disposable and ONLY use it once!!
Make sure the blades are constantly clear of old hairs by rinsing after EVERY stroke.
Only shave WITH the grain (at least until you clear up some).
NEVER shave over or near active acne!!
Try to shave once every other day rather than every day.
Exfoliate again after shaving.
Moisturise (with a proper, neutral moisturiser not an alcoholic balm!!) right after exfoliating and patting dry your skin (quality moisture is essential in the fight against acne).
