using BP w/o moisturizer?

Recommended Posts

what will happen if i don't use the moisturizer or if i don't put it on 15 min after the BP? does it affect the treatment of acne, or is it only to prevent dryness and flaking?

i sort of dread the morning regimen because my face is somewhat greasy for a few hours as the moisture sinks in. plus if i accidentally apply too much BP (i'm only on the regimen for 2.5 wks) then it makes it burn worse.

i've found in general that waiting a half hour to an hour makes it burn less. will this affect the effectiveness of the BP?

then, this morning, i had to go out soon after i applied to BP and just couldn't face feeling greasy for hours. so i didn't apply the moisturizer, and i felt much better all day.

at night, i also feel greasy after applying the moisturizer, but when i wake up in the morning my skin feels great.

thanks for any replies. i have another question but i'll ask it in another post :shifty:

The only point of the moisturizer is to make your face look normal and non-flaky. If your face looks alright w/o the moisturizer then there is no need. (I personally despise moisturizers and only use it before going out) On the other hand, you are only beginning the regime so the flakiness will hit you in a few weeks
