I thought that it was AHA that required the use of a sunscreen, but is this also the case for BP? (I'm using Dan's BP).

Yes, both cause skin to be more sensitive to sunlight.

Dan's moisturizer was made mainly to tackle flakes and dry skin.

Mostly to be used at night and in the morning if your not going outside.

He recommends us Olay SPF 15 which is no longer recommended when they made an ingredient change.

AHA takes off 3 SPF from your skin due to it's exfoliation.

BP on the other hand, has a stronger sensitivity to sunlight.

The rim of my lips are dark due to BP, I was too lazy to put on suncreen some months back when I started the regimen.

What you should do is find one of dans recommended sunscreen such as complex 15. There is soon to be a law that only let's sunscreen be up to a SPF of 30 since that is rouhly how much a sunscreen can protect up to. I think it's going to be enforced in a year or two?

Anyhow, what you should be doing is

cleanse, treat, moisturize, gently blot & sunscreen.

, = 5-15 minutes wait time.

Thanks that was very helpful :) Just one thing, do you mean gently blot off the excess moisturiser after 5 - 15 minutes and THEN apply the sunscreen?

Yessir.

i wait more on the 20 minutes side to fully let the skin soak up the moisture.

Whatever moisturizer or jojoba left on your face and isnt going to be absorb should be gently blotted off.

Afterwards put a thin layer of Olay 15 or some other SPF you use. Make sure t be care.
