So here it is:
1) It's okay to LIGHTLY use a washcloth on your face. Just make sure it is clean, and gently rub it in circles to remove dead skin. I don't see how it's irritating the skin if you do it lightly. So do it!
2) I only use BP once a day, at night. Sometimes on certain areas in the morning. Perhaps I don't need as much BP as others, but I can get away with doing that so I don't know!
3) Lotion all the time, as often as you want.
4) I also don't believe more BP is better. It only works so much, I don't know why you would put more than necessary on and waste it and burn your skin.
That's what I do, I'm not saying it will work, but it might help!
Good luck <3

I really feel that many people on the regimen get into a "cycle" as I like to call it. They clear, then get acne again, go extra gentle on their skin, deal with dry skin, and then clear and then get acne again. The reason for this is because of the dry skin. Dry skin is incredibly irritating...more so than roughly touching your skin. It is AMAZING what a difference a little rough washing can do if you find yourself in this "cycle". Being gentle is good if you're just starting the regimen and are dealing with a face full of inflamed lesions, but it's just not necessary when you're 3-4 months in. It'll only make things worse, to be honest.
