clear for almost a year now, I'm at the point where I only use the face wash, and aha, I know not to use aha during the day.. so I have detailed questions..

this morning , I went to the pool, i got a good amount of sun, now that its night time, is it completely safe to put on ? or because my face being in the sun for hours today, would it make it red ? should i wait a day ?

also, I read somewhere not even to use aha if you know your going to be in the sun soon..like even the next day..

if I know im going to the pool the next day, should I not even put it on that night before ?

or is it ok just as long as its not active on my face right before going out into the sun..

also, I've read somewhere on this site you can actually put aha on your face during the day, as long as you put something with spf on ? if thats true, is there a recommended lotion/cream with spf I can use for during the day, or should I only stick to night.

thank you :)

If you're using AHA (no matter what time of day), you'll need to limit your sun exposure and use a sunscreen for at least a week after using the product, because it increases your skin's sensitivity to sunlight, meaning that you'll burn a heck of a lot easier.

If you're planning on going swimming, get yourself a good water-resistant or waterproof sunscreen and reapply it every couple of hours.

You can get sun, you just need to be careful about it.
