Long term or short term effects when skipping day?

I have heard that pimples that appear on your face were actually caused by something you did about a week before, for example forgetting to wash your face and apply bp. However, I find that if i do not wash my face and apply bp every 12 hours i break out. litterally, within the 18th hour i will have new pimples formed. So whats the truth? If you skip a day will you immediately see the effects or will the acne not kick in until the following week?

hey, that's a really good question. I seem to notice more immediate breaking out when I skip bp as well. It makes me wonder if I would have the same breakout if I wasn't even using bp.

well, for me...i got busy/lazy and stopped the regime for about two weeks after having used it for about four months and it came back--hard. nothing happened those two weeks so i thought it was gone forever...boy was i wrong. added to the fact that i stressed, had little sleep, didn't have time to eat...i went from clear to severe real fast...like almost overnight.
