How long do I need to wait after washing my face to apply the BP?

Recommended Posts

And how long do I usually need to cleanse for? Sometimes I wash my face and wait like 5 minutes before applying BP when Im in a rush, but if Im in no hurry I usually wait like 15 minutes when I can start to feel my skin start drying then apply. What is the optimal time do you think?

Cleanse for 10-15 seconds. Pat dry (very lightly, bare touching the towel to your face.)

Now you can wait either between 5 and 15 minutes. Personally, I don't really think it matters as long as your skin is completely dry.

i usually like to wait about ten minutes, i just like to wait until my face feels COMPLETELY dry, but if youre in a hurry or anything, feel free to do it pretty quick theres not really a big deal.

I don't wait very long, maybe a minute or two. You can apply BP as soon as you skin feels dry. I thoroughly pat my face dry and then walk around my apartment briefly so that I get some air circulating on my skin. I think it's much more important to wait 10-15 minutes for the BP to absorb before applying moisturizer than to wait even 5 minutes after washing, so long as you face actually is dry. If your face isn't dry, it will make applying the BP take a good deal longer, but that's all. However, if the BP hasn't absorbed into your skin completely, you can have a lot of moisturizer clumping problems and feel like your face is caked with stuff.
