You want to apply sunscreen about 20 minutes before going into the sun. Applying at night means that you're far more likely to rub it off on your pillowcase. Also, chemical sunscreen agents degrade over time, which is why you're supposed to reapply. Sadly, the more important issue is that Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion lacks a UVA-protecting agent, so it's next to useless for preventing wrinkles and skin cancer. And, since it contains AHA at an effective concentration and pH, you're definitely going to want to apply a real sunscreen as AHA's can make your skin slightly more vulnerable to sun damage.
