Hi, If you aren't doing so already, I'd try shaving after your shower. The hot water and steam will help to open your pores. I would also get a good exfoliating scrub and use that in the shower. This will lift your hair. Try a moisturizing shaving gel and a nice sharp razor blade, too.
You could be getting ingrown hairs. I just started using a exfoliating scrub and a good face lotion after I shave and I havnt had any problems with them anymore. If you ever want to get back to using a blade I suggest you look at the Art of Shaving products for men. I got their ingrown hair kit and it comes with a real badger brush some good lotion and some night creme to help your beard grow back through the skin without bumps. And if they are pimples, try using zap zyt. It is in a little white tube with orange letters and It has 10% benzoyl peroxide ( works really good overnight). Hope this helps.
