Do I need to wear Sunscreen if I use SA at Night?

Hello, I use Paula's Choice Beta Hydroxy Acid Gel, which is pretty much 1% Salicylic acid. I wash my face every night and apply this before I goto bed to manage my blackheads.

When I wake up in the morning I rinse my face with water to wash this stuff off. I am aware that SA causes sensitivity to the sun but I am not sure if it causes sensitivity for an extended amount of time after being absorbed into the skin, even if washed off?

So really my question is, if I apply SA at Night, and wash it off the next morning, will my skin be sensitive to sun? Even though I applied it the Night before, and washed it off in the morning?
