Long-term use of BP

Just curious...does anyone know if there are any negative, long-term consequences of using such a large amount of benzoyl peroxide everyday? Doesn't it sensitize your skin a lot to the sun? I just hope my skin won't look ragged in 10, 20, 30 years...

Thanks, that's a good point, but I'm 28 now, just curious if, by, say, 48, my skin will look bleached out and completely haggard. You know? Just makes me think of people who tan religiously and have beautiful skin until they get much older and their skin looks leathery.

Of course I'm totally jumping on the regime bandwagon, it sounds brilliant, just concerned about possible long-term results.

Jus make sure you moisturise... ppl who look old from tanning have serious UV ray damage to their skin. Aswell as probably drying their skin out to hell, which can make you look older very fast.
