Hey guys, it's getting pretty hot here over in Australia... and when the sun comes out, I'm down at the ocean. So just wondering if the ocean water would affect the regimen in any sorta crazy way??

Its def gonna make ur skin a lot dryer. actually i wouldnt say a lot dryer, but think of the water as a very good exfoliator. I was in like 4 weeks ago and i was on the regimen, and i still managed to go into the water...like every 5 seconds actually. Dont worry about it. It doesnt really do anything to ur acne at all.mine actually got better.

make sure you wear a water-proof sunscreen! the bp can make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

but, that having been said, the beach has always cleared me up...send me some sun!

Last time I went to the beach was about a month after I started the regimen. The salt water made my face sting pretty badly and turn red, and I had to get out of the water and wash myself off before it stopped. I have very sensitive skin so that might be it, but my reaction was unpleasant. Not sure about it washing off the BP, just wanted to warn you that it might sting if you have particularly sensitive skin.
