Post For those who use exfoliants

do u get increased sun-sensitivity after using it? I heard it thins up the skin, causing it to be more sensitive to the sun. do anyone of u get freckles or sun-spots after using exfoliants like AHA or BHA? thanks.

i burn a bit easier on my face then the rest of my body... i've been using glycolic acid for over a year..... and just this past 2 weeks, i've started tanning in a salon, seeing that our weather here is s***, and i've definitely noticed a bigger sensitivity to the sun ... (or tanning lamps)... not a huge deal... just a bit more sensitive.... just be careful when using these products and use sunscreen... when i am out in the sun .. my moisturizer foundation has an spf in it... so, its not as bad as when not wearing make up at all...

no freckles or age spots or anything though

apply the exfoliants at night, before bed, and you'll be fine

I thought that during the night, the skin heals or regenerates.

So, would it not be wiser to use exfoliants in the morning, and something like cp serum at night?
