Hey guys, I was just wondering if my skin will still be sensitive to the sun once it adjusts to the BP? I like to be in the sun during the summer (moderate amounts, nothing too crazy) but I don't want to get super sun burned and red or anything. Just a decent tan. I'm only using the BP once at night and I've started to get pretty good results so I don't plan on increasing my amount to twice a day. I never really wear sun screen either unless I know I'm going to be out in the sun all day.

Yes, anti-acne medications (including benzoyl peroxide) do tend to make the skin more sun sensitive. Please protect your skin. Check out Dan's spf info page; http://www.acne.org/spf.html
