No, do not reapply the BP after swimming...it will just irritate your face. However, moisturizing afterwards is perfectly fine and probably a good idea since you will most likely be dry. In case you don't already know this, you should probably also wear a good waterproof SPF if you're going swimming oustide. Good luck!

From the Acne.org FAQs:

Q: I am going to be swimming during the day. Should I do a third Regimen application afterward?

A: I don't know because I am not a swimmer. The consensus on the message boards seems to be that swimming does not adversely affect acne and a third routine is not warranted. A member of this site wrote me and asked that I also add that your skin may become very dry after a swim, so although you may not need to apply bp again, be sure to bring a moisturizer along.
