bp & showering

how long does bp take to actually get into the skin and start acting?

if i shower 30 min later will this impact effectiveness?

disregarding irritation. i'm interested in scientifically how long this stuff takes to get into the pores and do it's thing.

thanks guys

I have read (I'll try to find it) that BP's half life is 1 hour. Although, I would be safe and wait at least 2 hours.

i don't think that has to do with time to absorb though? just how quickly your body gets rid of the stuff.

tbh i think the stuff gets deep into the pores within 10 minutes.

i wouldn't really advise showering after application though. seems kinda backwards. i feel like you should be doing that the other way. why not just shower first, then apply BP?

moisturiser makes me feel disgusting and i have to use a generous amount to kill the dryness...

seem to stay clear if i wait 30 min after applying moisturizer and then shower. face also feels much fresher.

just wondering if there's an optimal time frame.
