Moisturizing 5-10 mins after BP Gel

Recommended Posts

After doing the BP gel stage, wouldn't moisturzing get rid of the BP gel that is there and make the BP gel not work? Just a quick nooby question. Hehe thanks.

No, because you are not removing the bp gel, you are just putting moisturizer over it. Also, I have no proof of this, but it seems once the bp dries and then you begin applying the moisturizer, it seems to help smooth the rest of that bp on into the skin. I read that the benzoyl portion of benzoyl peroxide pulls the peroxide portion deep down into the pores (where all that bacteria-killing oxygen can be released), so I am pretty sure it is going to do it's job, even if we apply a moisturizer over top. It is mostly rubbed in before applying the moisturizer anyway.

Hope this helps you.

Remember not to put too much moisturiser either, because it will clog up the pores and begin to counteract the BP.
