What do you mean by "Does the bp only work for a certain amount of months?". BP does expire, if that's what you mean. It starts to get weaker, and may not be as effective against acne after it's been opened for about six months. Maybe you just need to buy more?

Ah, gotcha. Hmm. I don't think you're breaking out because the BP stopped working. Maybe it's the change in the weather? Or have you added in any new products, like a sunscreen or anything?

It could be the weather :( But do you think the bp will eventually clear it up again or will i be like this all summer?

I hope that this is just a temporary thing. Like Dan says, if you don't clear up, try using more BP.

If you've been tanning, that can be the cause of more breakouts. Sometimes a person can go for years without breaking out from tanning and then something changes and breakouts suddenly occur.

you might want to increase the amount of BP you are using. that could definitely help. but you don't really build up a resistance to BP, so if it works, it works. the change in weather might have just given you a little breakup.
